Nigel’s Influence

Firstly, this is an open letter of thanks to Nigel Lowson. Nigel, Matt and I set up http://www.moveandnourish.com 3 years ago after Nigel had positively impacted mine and many other lives at my Personal Training, Yoga and Pilates studio. Nigel came along to a Pilates class and the first thing that struck me was that he had a zest for life I’d never seen befire! He had so much energy, passion, curiosity and willingness and openness to try new things. In that class Nigel would say a few things each week that would make me laugh and also wanting to...

An incredible teacher I always look to, talks about the necessity of staying in a “beautiful state”. A lot of people are always searching for happiness, but happiness, like any emotion, is temporary.

Discover A New Way To Move

Movement is life – if we are not growing we are dying! As a movement coach I can honestly say movement is everything. We can tell so much about who someone is, by their movements. We get really good at whatever we practice: whether that is sitting still, running, yoga, Pilates or even dancing! If we can step out of the exercise bubble of the gym for a second, what movements inspire you? What do you look at and admire? What gets you excited? What have you always secretly dreamed of doing? For me, its dance. As an awkward...
