Marie-Claire has been in the fitness industry since 1998 working as everything from a gym instructor and swimming teacher before finding her passion in Pilates & Yoga teaching. Combining teaching with sports massage therapy, she ran a dedicated studio for 12 years and was actively teacher training for 7 years. An accident in 2014 forced her to change direction leading now to a focus on supporting others with injuries and illnesses, who would be contraindicated in the group class environment. Her easy to follow Pilates and Yoga practise guide 'Opposition in Pilates and Yoga' is available to buy or download on Amazon.
