Focus Questions:

  1. In one word, describe your first Pilates experience?

Hooked!

  • What did you eat for breakfast?

Buckwheat toast + coffee.

  • Share either the best or most challenging thing about your job:

Best: witnessing students’ ‘uh huh!’ moments as they perform exercises.

  • Your ‘go to’ website for all things Pilates (other than PAA)?

Not a website per se, but a really great Instagram page with lots of info + inspo: Physiotherapy Stockholm.

  • How did you get hooked on Pilates?

My friend happened to be teaching at a studio down the road from me (how serendipitous!) I went along for a session & loved it. Signed up for unlimited classes straight away.

  • The best advice you’ve ever had?

Try not to take things personally. No one thinks about you as much as you do.

  • An indulgence you can’t live without?

Red wine.

  • How long have you been a member of PAA?

1 year.

  • Do you have a motto?

Never be afraid to ask for help, but don’t forget to give back.

  • Who is your Pilates idol or would love to meet, and why?

Lisa Hubbard – love her flows. Stunning to watch!

  • What do you appreciate most about your body?

Its strength.

  • What book are you reading right now?

How Do You Feel? An Interoceptive Moment With Your Neurological Self’ by A.D. (Bud) Craig.
