Andrea was a professional dance practitioner and has had over 20 years experience working in the UK and internationally, as a dance artist, teacher and choreographer on a wide range of projects, with people of all ages and needs, within the arts and community sector.
Whilst training to be a dancer Andrea was unfortunately injured and under the advice of dance professionals, undertook a course of Pilates to rehabilitate, the injury.
That was in 1986! Since that time she has always practiced Pilates to support a professional dance career and since having children to further, keep body and mind in balance and in shape, preventing further injury and keep core muscles strong.
After a long and most enjoyable association in the world of Pilates as a practitioner, Andrea undertook teacher training with Alan Herdman and now teaches both mat work and equipment based sessions. Andrea loves working with clients for both rehabilitation and general fitness, whilst always endeavoring to deliver a high standard of professionalism and support, to further develop their Pilates practice.
Always enthusiastic and nurturing, Andrea is able to adapt to each client to meet their individual needs and importantly share her enjoyment and fulfillment she gains everyday from Pilates.
