Head Therapist + Lead Instructor
I graduated in 2004 with a BSc (hons) Sports Therapy from the University of Hertfordshire. Since then, I have worked in a variety of settings including private healthcare, sports teams, NHS funded community programmes and within private fitness facilities. I have been delivering Pilates classes since 2006.
Originally trained in the STOTT Pilates method, I now offer Pilates classes in North Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire which have a clinical approach and are highly beneficial during the rehabilitation of injury and in reducing future injury risk. I have attended additional Pilates training with Modern Pilates, APPI and YMCA.
Natalie set up her first class in Misterton following the birth of her second child and before long expanded to offer 10 classes each week.
Demand was still high and so Tina stepped in to deliver additional classes; Tina had previously spent 25 years as a Mental Health nurse in the NHS and so her approach to teaching has a strong emphasis on the mind-body connection and the psychological benefits that Pilates provides.
"I have a particular interest in human movement and in addressing biomechanical imbalances and assymetries that may otherwise lead to pain or dysfunction. I'm an advocate for restoring natural movement patterns into lifestyles that typically move us away from the primal movements which enable our bodies to remain strong, healthy and functional.
I utilise a combination of manual treatments including osteopathic and soft tissue techniques, Dry Needling and various forms of soft tissue and myofascial release, alongside Pilates and other remedial exercise, to reduce pain and improve functionality.
I am a member of the Society of Sports Therapists, the Sports Therapy Organisation and BackCare (a back pain charity), I am also regulated by the CNHC and I regularly attend professional development training in order to ensure I keep abreast of current research and that I maintain an excellent quality to my work."
