After years spent in & out of hospital, I turned to yoga & Pilates as a solution to my pain. Together, they worked so well, I was pain free by the time I was 20 and my posture was corrected as much as it could be. As I have got older it is harder, however if it wasn’t for yoga and pilates I wouldn’t be as mobile as I am today.
I do have blips, I call them days when my body doesn’t function as it should, but I work hard with the amazing guidance over the years from Dr Horsley my guru and most of the Olympic teams head Guru as they would say, his knowledge and experience has helped me overcome displaced pelvis, trapped femoral nerve and tendon in my pelvis, bulging discs, sublimed joints and more.
Therefore I understand why people sometimes don’t want to attend a gym, or do any physical activity, they want something more, a personal studio with a dedicated team of highly qualified teachers who understand everyone is different, but everyone can gain the amazing benefits of Yoga and Pilates.
I am qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga not only one of its teachers but course tutor and specialist advisor in areas of cancer and stroke. Including Pilates, Level 4 specialist areas and REPS Level 4. This includes nutrition, antenatal & Postnatal, Sport & Remedial massage, Reiki, Indian Head and Hot stone massage, glass and vacuum cupping, ear hopi, Bamboo massage and more. I also specialise in mobility & rehabilitation and I am qualified in Level 4, Exercise after Stroke and Cancer rehab I have been a volunteer in cancer rehab for our local NHS since 2007. I founded MBS in 2005 in and around Barnsley Town, which has grown from just me to a team in my own studio.

I am also bookable for 1-2-1, small groups and private sessions for Pilates & yoga classes as well as fitness, rehab, mobility and lifestyle changing advice and help, plus sports and remedial massage and rehab sessions.
