Qualifications: CSP associate practitioner, Stott Pilates certified mat and reformer. Injuries and pre and post-natal trained.
Tisha first discovered Pilates 16 years ago, during her career as a dancer. At the time it helped her to enhance her performance massively, as well as to manage injuries and recover from them. But it was when faced with a serious car accident that she became a living example of how much Pilates can be beneficial to your health. She suffered multiple severe fractures, some of which required surgery, and a head trauma, yet the tools she had developed over the years allowed her to achieve an almost full recovery in less than 2 years. Looking at her today you could never tell that she suffered such serious injuries.
Tisha is STOTT Pilates qualified and certified. She certified in matwork in 2018 and has been teaching full time since, adding reformer training within six months, with all levels from beginners to advanced. Having developed a passion for the clinical aspects of Pilates, she also completed Injuries and Special Populations, the rehab course within the STOTT Pilates curriculum, as well as pre and post natal workshops. She spent a year and a half in the UAE on a full-time teaching contract, looking after a wide range of clients and gained experience working on a broad range of clinical applications.
Tisha invests herself in keeping up to date with current research in anatomy, human movement and neuroscience, and regularly attends courses and workshops. She has a particular interest in Neurology, including the role of the nervous system in both movement and pain as well as neurological injuries and pathologies.
Tisha is passionate about understanding the human body and developing personalised and creative solutions to help people overcome their own injuries, or reach their full potential as an athlete. She believes that at the core of every success story is the relationship we develop with our bodies. As such, she always aims to teach people the tools they need to take ownership of the process and develop lifelong skills to move better and feel better.
