Hi, I'm Liz. I'm a certified Pilates Instructor, avid runner and mum to 2 boisterous and beautiful boys. I started practising Pilates over 12 years ago and it has changed my life. Over the years Pilates has improved my posture, kept me strong and fit during my pregnancies, helped me with post-pregnancy recovery, reduced lower back pain and in recent years improved and enhanced my running!
I started running when I had children 10 years ago and it quickly became as important as my Pilates practice. Then I started to get running related niggles and injuries, and I would need to take periods off of running to recover. During one of those non-running periods I started to develop and adapt my Pilates practice to help me recover. I quickly found that not only was I recovering better, but I was coming back stronger and faster, and the niggles and injuries were not returning.
After that I did some more research and training to enable me to build on what I had been doing personally and create more effective Pilates sessions specifically for runners. The sessions I do now help runners not only to mitigate some of the risks of injury, but also to improve their form and therefore their endurance, speed and overall running performance.
Initially I started teaching a weekly Zoom session specifically for runners, which proved so popular I looked at other ways I could help support runners to enjoy running even more. That led me to create this website, so that runners could easily fit their strength and mobility sessions in around their running and other commitments.
To me Pilates is the perfect way to cross train with running. Not only does it balance out the high impact we put through the body when we run, it is also such a great way for everyone to reconnect the mind and body, to understand their body and their running better, and to tune into their own individual needs.
Since I started Pilates I have not looked back. To to be able to share my Pilates experience to help others enjoy running even more is a huge privilege.
Please get in touch if you want to know more about how to add Pilates into your training schedule, or if you would like to try a free session to see what it is all about!
