Pilates

I love to teach pilates but I am also qualified in zumba & as a personal trainer, basically I just love exercise & fitness! & I love working with our guests at the retreat, it is fantastic to see what a great difference just one week at the retreat can make to our guests overall health & wellbeing & I am proud to be a part of that transformation...

Pilates

My passion for exercise, health and wellness led me to train to be a Pilates teacher as well as a Ballet teacher.

For as long as I can remember my whole life has been about ballet which inspired me to undergo the 4 year’s study required to attain a teacher’s degree. Through this training I was introduced to the Pilates Method and I quickly realised it was in line with the philosophy of ballet. It was the importance of strengthening our core and the holistic aspect of the exercise giving rise to overall wellbeing that inspired me to qualify as a Pilates instructor with the University of Alicante.

Pilates has transformed my life personally and my intention is that my students also learn to connect with their own bodies. This enables them to be consciously aware of their posture which protects their back and spine alignment while exercising. The extra added bonus of taking this awareness into their day to day lifestyle is a big part of the work I do too.

PT

I have been involved in the fitness industry for most of my life... an industry which I absolutely love!

I have worked with many interesting people, from Olympic athletes to movie stars, all of whom had quite specific health & wellness goals & objectives which they have achieved with their own hard work & help support & guidance from me... I bring my knowledge, hard work ethic & enthusiasm to each & every class & activity that you will enjoy with me at the retreat & I look forward to working with you...

Yoga

Yoga has transformed my life & assisted me to stay young & fresh in both body & mind. Over the years I have studied Bikram yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow & Kundalini. For my teacher training I chose to study with Shivananda Yoga Vedanta as their course is highly valued. I had the privilege of successfully completing my training in the Himalayan Mountains of India, where the roots of yoga were born. As well as yoga I teach meditation & mindfulness classes...all these practices have brought me peace in my heart & joy in my soul & I wish the same for you...

Yoga

I teach different types of yoga depending on the requirements of my students, from yoga therapy for those with low fitness levels, health issues or injuries to ashtanga & vinyasa flow for those with a reasonable level of fitness. Yoga is just one word for a practice that embraces many types & styles, there are many approaches to it & each individual person may choose what is most suitable for them personally, their health & fitness level & well-being goals...

Nutritionist

I have studied nutrition extensively for many years & I am also a qualified fitness instructor which allows me to asses our guests nutritional & physical balance & therefore what is ideal for that individual person going forward on the path to ultimate health & wellness. Over the years I have shared my knowledge, passion & experience with the hundreds of guests who have attended the retreat, guests from all walks of life throughout North America & Europe, helping them to improve their lifestyle & nutritional balance. "I love working to create a better understanding about the huge power that nutrition has in developing & maintaining a healthy mind, body & spirit - especially when combined with activity & exercise"...

Retreat Director

My old job in the UK was as the Sales Director of a PLC. This was a highly stressful job which meant that for me exercising & eating healthily came right at the bottom of my list of priorities. A Personal Epiphany came in 2003 when I decided I needed a different way of life... Today it is my pleasure to make your stay at our retreat the best it can be. Whatever you need, I am here for you.

The aim of a session of mylogenics is to help people get pain free by finding what the root cause of the problem is, by using muscle testing we are looking for the weak link that causes your pain. When we have found the weak link we will use instant muscle enhancement techniques to reduce & remove your pain. You might have noticed the word instant, and yes that means you will notice an improvement straight away…because we immediately reduce muscle tension and improve both movement and function of muscles, joints, tendon plates, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
