Pip is a Vinyasa Flow and Restorative (Yoga), Mat Pilates, Yoga Nidra & Mindfulness Teacher.
She delivers public classes, well-being in the workplace and consultancy, online and present in person.
In addition to her role, Pip is an Associate Lecturer at Newcastle University within Newcastle University Business School and the School of Arts and Cultures in Independent Working and Management Consultancy, with research interests in creativity, innovation and wellbeing.
Her journey in movement started through contemporary dance. She trained as a contemporary dancer in Graham, Release and Cunningham techniques and was introduced to Pilates during her dance training, where she was preparing to teach the community and studied the musculoskeletal system, adolescent growth spurt and the ‘ageing’ body in pre/professional dancers. She has since then used Pilates as a rehabilitation practice with her physiotherapists to conservatively manage bilateral acetabular retroversion and a small labral tear, in her left hip.
She trained as a Mat Pilates Instructor with BASI UK, in 2021. Through a scientific, evidence- based approach, she’s passionate about providing Mat Pilates as a rehabilitation practice for the community, as well as her primary interest, artists and athletes.
Previous to Mat Pilates Teacher Training, she also trained in 2019 as a Yoga Teacher in Vinyasa Flow and Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness at Yoga Hero, Leeds, UK, after such a positive experience using Yoga to manage her physical and mental well-being.
Previous to commencing a career in academia, she worked for arts and cultural organisations, charities and SME’s in talent development and training academy environments, as well as an abundance of primary, secondary and SEND schools and settings in dance and creative education.
