‘I used to suffer from lower and upper back pain after years of working as a professional circus artist and developing functional scoliosis. I also travelled the world, which meant spending hours on a plane. This not only worsened my back pain, it also effected my performance. I discovered Pilates to help manage my scoliosis and prolong my performing career, and quickly realised how it can help many people with the issues from all walks of life.
Now offering small group reformer and tower group classes, as well as private and semi private sessions at Standout Performance.
