A LITTLE INSIGHT IN TO ME

I’m very proud of my Celtic roots. Travel is in my blood: I got married on a mountain in New Zealand, named my pilates studio after a trip to Nepal, and spent my 30th birthday salsa dancing in Cuba. 

When I’m not teaching or traveling the world, you’ll find me at home in Devon going paddle-boarding with my husband, having dinner parties with friends and family, or nibbling on dark chocolate while gazing at the ocean.
