I am an Osteopath, Personal Trainer & Movement Teacher from the UK.Currently registered with the UK General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) & UK Osteopathic Sports Care Associations (OSCA).
I travelled all over the world and tried to learn from as many different movement disciplines as possible. Selected disciplines include:
Stretch Therapy, Shaolin Kung-fu, Freestyle Wrestling, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu…Qigong, Yoga, Dance, Weightlifting and Circus Arts (Mainly Aerial Silks - but I dabbled in Chinese Pole and some hand-balancing).
I have also been influenced by teachers such as Jon Yuen, Ido Portal, Steve Maxwell, Kelly Starrett, Emmet Louis and Kit Laughlin - as well as from practices such as Fighting Monkey and Functional Range Conditioning.
I believe in always being a student and as I continue to study and learn, my approach changes and grows.
