• About me

  • Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. 

    Meditation for me keeps me calm, helps me more easily compartmentalise things in my mind and is an integral part of my life.  I can fully recommend it for everyone.

    I am passionate and enjoy all aspects of Pilates, Nutrition, and Meditation,  I think the three combined are a perfect recipe for overall wellness. 

    Life is busy, and with more and more demands on ourselves to juggle so many different plates, there is never a better time to invest in your own wellbeing.

    I have always been interested in wellness and helping people, and the skills that I have learnt has meant that I have been able to help people either through the Pilates I teach or through Nutritional Therapy and Meditation forms part of this wellness package.

    I successfully gained a distinction in my Meditation Teaching training, and have practiced meditation for a number of years. I am very excited to be able to pass on what I have learned to others, to enhance peoples lives, which in today's world where stress is in abundance is very important.

    Meditation

    Dip Bsom- Mindful Meditation Teacher

    As a Mindful Meditation teacher, I have been trained through the British School of Meditation, where I gained their Nationally recognized externally accredited Diploma, with Ofqual recognition. I received their highest award of distinction. It was important for me to gain a fully recognized qualification within meditation to further enhance my practice and learn the benefits and techniques of this amazing practice to teach others.

    Nutrition

    Bsc (Hons) Dip NT

    I intially started my nutrition journey after my A-levels and studied for a degree in Applied Consumer Science, I then worked in other industries instead of going into Dietetics which at the time didn’t appeal to me. Years later I re-visited my Nutrition and gained my 2 year diploma in Nutritional Therapy, enabling me to work as a Nutritional Therapist, recognised by BANT.¬†http://bant.org.uk.

    Pilates

    Dip Teaching Mat Pilates (L3)

    My love of exercise, and a bad back, made me want to gain a teaching qualification to teach others the benefits of Pilates. I like to think of Pilates as moving meditation, that also helps your back, gives you a stronger core and re-aligns your body.

    Pilates truly is one of the best things you can do for physical and mental health and everyone should practice it, whatever your age. I offer a number of classes throughout Jersey, you can see my full timetable and more about Pilates on my other website www.NRgizepilates.com.
