..A practice that fits in with your lifestyle.
My work combines Pilates, Barre and Kundalini Yoga so you feel stress free, energised, strong and loving life..
I first brought Pilates, Barre and Kundalini Yoga together to get what I needed from my morning practice, using all the tools I had, in the time I had. Pilates and Barre to strengthen, tone and balance the body on a muscular, bio mechanical level and Kundalini Yoga to renew the energy systems of the body and bring in vitality, clarity and deeper spiritual connection. It was awesome.
How you move your body is reflected in how you move through life...
I found that other women were also looking for an efficient, effective practice, to fit in with their lifestyles but still have the quality. A practice that had a strong physical focus but also appealed to their spiritual side, and help the navigate their modern lives and modern pressures. My classes hit the spot perfectly delivering an amazing personal experience to each client, so they can get on with their awesome lives feeling confident, clear capable in control. heart·core·body was born.
So why heart·core·body?..
...Strong and toned body, Relief from stress and overwhelm , Deeper connection to self and others, Better Sleep, Better Posture, Confidence, Clarity, Compassion.....
Heart - Strengthening and opening our hearts awakens our creative consciousness to new possibilities and inspires us to the best we can be. With a strong and open heart we invoke courage and compassion for self and others. A conscious and loving perspective opens channels, and healthy positivity ripples into our lives, homes, relationships and the planet.
Core - Our personal power comes from the core. My work focuses raising energy levels and on building strength from the inside out - not just physically but emotionally, changing subconscious patterns as well as reinforcing the deep support muscles of the spine. A strong core keeps us youthful, energetic, balanced and feeling in tune and on purpose. A strong emotional centre makes us resilient to the inevitable ups and downs.
Body - The way we use our bodies, condition our muscles and our minds affects our confidence; how we carry ourselves, literally and metaphorically. A strong, balanced, supple and toned body with good alignment, and movement patterns ensures we can do all the things we need to do, efficiently, safely with confidence and calm... and feel really good doing it.
heart·core·body is an harmonious practice that respects the traditions, but its not for the purists.
Lift your Bum - Pilates and Barre to balance, tone, strengthen and increase flexibility. Strong gluts relieves back pain and stabilises the pelvis.
Lift your Vibration - Kundalini Yoga techniques to work all systems of the body, clearing subconscious blocks and raising energy and awareness.
Rock your Wellbeing - You'll challenge yourself to feel empowered, confident, clear and resilient; capable and on fire, in your life and relationships.
You’re awesome already. Perfect in your imperfection. Absolutely enough. Its not about perfection - Its about commitment to yourself
I believe that looking after ourselves this way improves the way we feel about ourselves, how we communicate in our relationships, and thus giving more meaning and quality to how we experience our lives.
I feel totally amazing, balanced and on my game (most of the time- I'm human)... and so can you!
And here's a little bit of background...
"Ooo yes, this is gooood. Amazing, even" was my reaction after starting Pilates classes 11 years ago. The focus relaxed my mind and practice made me feel strong inside and out. I began to really get into my body for the first time, and felt more confidence in myself all round. I trained immediately to teach, motivated to share this incredible, intelligent exercise. It was great but, a Yogi at heart, I was searching for a deeper spiritual connection too.
Serendipity led me to train as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and then it all made sense. In awe and excited at my new experiences, plus finally overcoming a long term eating disorder, I have been teaching the amazing technology of Kundalini Yoga, but never forgetting the of awesome benefits of Pilates on the body; its structure and balance and the mind; focus and clarity.
As I travel through my 40s and beyond its my mission to use my skills to help you feel great and vital, to know how fabulous you are already. To FEEEEL it in your body, heart and soul. For you to love the life you live and the body you live in. This a win for you personally, but this high vibration also flows over into our homes, our communities and planet. A win for everyone. Perfect..
My classes add a bit of va va voom into your day and raise your energy levels. You will feel great in yourself, about yourself and feel connected in your life. So simple.
