"I discovered a passion for health and fitness in 2004. After struggling with niggles and injuries when running, I attended a workshop with ChiRunning founder Danny Dreyer in 2010. This encouraged me to qualify as a Certified ChiRunning Instructor. I also went on to qualified as a Personal Trainer, Master Kettlebell Coach, Specialist Exercise Coach (Management of Lower Back Pain).
In 2014 I was appointed Master Instructor and Director of ChiRunning UK & Ireland, responsible for the management of ChiRunning across this region. Looking to develop my skill-set further, in 2016 I trained as an Oxygen Advantage Instructor with Patrick McKeown. I became the first UK Certified Instructor, teaching a programme of breathing exercises that help address every-day breathing pattern disorders alongside improving sports performance. In 2018 I trained with Patrick in the Buteyko Breathing method, upon which the Oxygen Advantage is based.
I work with clients on a 1-2-1 basis and also hold regular workshops in London, across the UK and Europe. I also train new instructors in the ChiRunning and Oxygen Advantage methods. My current personal practice includes kettlebells and body-weight strength training to complement a marathon-maintenance running programme.
I enjoy running marathons and half marathons with my first venture into ultras at the Royal Parks Ultra Marathon back in 2014."
