About

Who I am

I am a fully qualified and leading freelance Pilates and fitness professional who has been in the fitness industry since the year 2000.

I love the outdoors and am passionate about helping others to reach their full potential through healthy living practices such as regular exercise and maintaining a healthy diet which I both advocate and practice myself.

Pilates Teacher Mentoring and Training

I am keen to share my wealth of experience and knowledge to future generations of Pilates instructors and have a limited number of Pilates Trainee Mentorships available. Please contact me to confirm a place.

Community and Social Engagement

I am an advocate of living a healthy lifestyle and do this through my volunteer activities and engagements where I regularly speak at community events, private hospitals and treatment centres.

My New Zealand Maori heritage is of great significance and importance to me and helps to guide my practice in connecting our bodies to the world around us in a way that our ancient ancestors did for generations before us.

Indigenous Health

I strongly believe in supporting and nurturing the next generation of children and am particularly passionate about improving the health of indigenous children in our community and do this through my ongoing support of Nutrition Plus.
