About the tutor:

"I focus on teaching group exercise classes focused on strengthening bones & increasing muscle mass. I believe functional movement increases range of motion & flexibility, while gentle movement aids with arthritis pain & stiffness."

During that time she has completed several professional training workshops for Exercise & Falls Prevention, Restoring Optimal Function for the Hip, Knee & Ankle, Aqua Hydropower workshop, Studio Pilates International Matwork course & Small Pilates Ball course.
