Nutrition
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

What is good nutrition?
Good nutrition means your body gets all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs to work its best. It is best to plan your meals and snacks to include nutrient-dense foods that are also low in calories.

Balancing exercise with nutrition is very important and I have found the right nutrition can be real medicine for the body. We have billions of bacteria in our gut which send signals to the rest of our body and our brain. If we don’t eat properly then our body won’t function properly and our brains don’t work as well as they should. In achieving a fit and healthy body, your diet makes up 80% of the results that you want to achieve, that means that only 20% is due exercise.

About Me

I believe that nutrition and supplementation is just as important as a focused exercise program and after assessing my client’s goals and fitness levels, I advise them on the best methods for them to achieve their goals and how to maintain them. Whether it be weight-loss, overall body toning, muscle building, enhanced sports performance or rehab specific exercises for problems like osteoporosis, arthritis etc.I started practicing Pilates in 2009 and teaching the STOTT Pilates method from January 2010. Over the years I’ve personally had back, knee and neck problems and was amazed how I had fully recovered after just one year of Pilates. I am very interested in the human body and how it functions and find no matter how experienced someone is, there is always something new to learn. I realised STOTT Pilates was the best choice for me as this method is a medically based Pilates discipline.We study the body in detail from the bones and joints to the muscles and learn how to adapt exercises for injuries and specific posture types.I am internationally qualified in Essential, Intermediate and Advanced Matwork as well as Essential and Intermediate Reformer. In 2012 I completed the Advanced Reformer Course and in 2014 completed the Injuries and Special Populations Course as well as various workshops and recently in 2016 I completed the Basi Standing Pilates workshop. In 2019 I completed the Cadillac intensive course essential-advanced level in Cape Town, South Africa with Lisa Palmer at the movement lab.
In 2019 I sold Powerpilates Durban North branch and in June 2020 sold Powerpilates Westville and recently relocated to Bowral, New South Wales in Australia.

My mission is to create and maintain the highest standards of Pilates teaching and health coaching for each individual by creating specific programmes to help correct posture and improve health for each and every individual’s needs.
