"Having always had a passion for health and fitness, having such an active job meant that this passion developed even further. I love the positive effects that dancing has on the body and I found that once I stopped dancing professionally I was eager to find a workout that gave me the same results. That's why I love Pilates & Barre - not only do they tone and sculpt the entire body but they also increase flexibility and stamina. There really is nothing like it"
