Practitioner Types: Franklin Method®,Pilates,Somatic Movement Educator,Somatic Practitioner



As a Registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist (RSME/RSMT) and Advanced Franklin Method® Educator, I am qualified to teach all levels of the Franklin Method®, the corresponding workshops and classes, either group or 1:1. I also work with dance organisations that bring me in to work with their own dancers using Franklin Method®.

I help dancers embody any system within our body, to help create comfortable and effortless movement, to develop technical or expressive skills in dance or problem solve some issues a dancer may be experiencing. I teach mainly online in my Virtual Studio, although I hope later in the year to return to some live teaching, all details of which are found on my website.

I currently run my weekly Franklin Method® classes on livestream that are drop in classes, they have a differing focus, some require a lot of movement, some use the tools of the Franklin Method® (our balls and bands) and some work specifically on developing interoceptive skills and helping the body reach a state of balance and peace at the end of the day.

My Virtual Studio also runs in depth Franklin Method Workshops and Specialist experiential classes. It also has its own dancer specific programme: Tension Free Dancer which runs at different points throughout the year and introduces dancers to all elements of the Franklin Method®, giving dancers specific tools using imagery and embodiment to help them with their dancing in so many different ways. Please visit my website for more information, or get in touch to see how I can support you.
