I became certified as a massage therapist, Pilates, Kettlebell and Indoor Cycle instructor. I have been teaching Pilates since 2008 and believe everyone should do Pilates as I have seen the huge changes which it can make to people’s bodies be it professional athletes looking to enhance performance or ordinary people seeking to improve their strength and flexibility.
Being a Pilates instructor clients naturally ask me for advice about food and nutrition and I always felt the need and desire to study nutrition to be of better service to my clients. Lack of time was always an issue. However, an unexpected crisis in my own health at a time when I was feeling my fittest and strongest forced me to stop and listen to that inner voice. Some of the issues which I faced were terrible digestive problems, a stress fracture and adrenal burnout, the causes of which went undetected for two years despite my search from answers in the medical system. Finally, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease and through a complete change in my diet I finally got my health back. My own health challenges forced me to make the time to study what had been placed in my heart years ago.
