Getting Started


What to Expect


No, you don’t have to put marbles between your toes!  Although I must say it feels pretty good and gives those toes a great stretch after being cast in tight shoes for a lifetime!

Your body will respond differently to every session.  You may experience some mild discomfort (as you do with any new regime) while we progressively align your posture and mindfully reduce physical restrictions.  This will improve quickly.

I will always modify the programme to address what is most needed and presenting at the time to ensure we enhance your general wellbeing. You can expect to work at a level which safely challenges you while discovering your personal strengths and weaknesses.

Expect to finish your session feeling centred, calm and rejuvenated.  Your body will feel stretched, energised and open.

If you are ever feeling ‘out of sorts’ when attending, or if you have any health concerns, please advise me so I can provide you with the best possible support, and if necessary, refer you to another health professional.

What to Wear

Comfortable clothing that allows for movement and stays with you as you bend, stretch, rotate and move your body in different positions and directions. Avoid clothing which is excessively baggy. For your feet, toeless socks with grips are fine; however, clean bare feet are great too. Please no jewellery (as it interferes with movements), strong perfumes and colognes.

What to Bring

Just yourself and your lovely smile. I provide towels and refreshments along with all of your equipment required for your workout and aromatherapy hot towels post workout.


There is ample parking directly beneath my home on Battery Road. There is a nice warm up of 21 steps to reach the house. Please ensure you close the gate behind you and mind your step!


There is a separate toilet and bathroom for your use. You will be provided with a storage container for your personal belongings and I have a dedicated area outside to store footwear so we ensure a high standard of hygiene.


Please be ready to start on time, this way we respect other clients who attend sessions either side of you and we all get to enjoy our dedicated workout time together. Should you arrive while a session is in progress, please wait quietly in the porched area and I will greet you as soon I have finished the session.
