rehabilitation and wanted to help people with specific problems and
injuries. She was fortunate to be offered work in a rehabilitation clinic where she had the opportunity to work with neck and back patients and sports related injuries, all of which worked so well together with her previous training and Pilates teaching.

Stuart entered into the fitness industry after graduating with a B.A in Sports studies in 2002.
He now works as a fitness and nutrition coach using his own unique system called Kinect Method. The core philosophy behind this being the connection of mind, exercise and food.
While working alongside a Pilates Instructor he spotted its potential to fast track his own clients in their wellbeing. After completing his training in 2008 and qualifying with Future Fit he has been teaching mat classes on a 1:1 basis ever since. He now offers classes at Roundhill.
"Over the years I've seen many people trying to improve their health by punishing their bodies with grueling and ineffective exercise routines. Pilates brings the sanity back into health and fitness. I am fortunate to have had the chance to introduce a large number of people to Pilates. Time and time again they improve their posture, body awareness, control, strength and quality of life with some simple but precise exercise".
Stuart's other passion lies in China's traditional martial art and health system Tai Chi. He was introduced to it in 2004 while studying with Kung Fu master Steve Cox. Stuart now specialises in Chen style Tai Chi and continues his study with lineage holders Paul Lockyer and Grandmaster Gou.
