Issy

A certified Reformer instructor with Barre Body, and with a classical background in BBO Ballet, I have also dabbled in graded tap and tumbling. The goal of my classes is to cultivate movement that is accessible to all skill levels, allowing clients to reach personal goals and work within their own practice and capabilities. 

"Through my classes, I hope to offer opportunities for a great work out and provide a space to reconnect with your body through movement.

If I'm not teaching, studying, or at Pilates, you'll probably find me home singing along to musical tunes or doing a crossword in the paper."
