For me, pole started out as a lot of things do for me, a spontaneous idea to try something new. As I turned up for my first class, on my own and not knowing what to expect, it started to seem like a bad idea.


How wrong I was. Pole has made me the most confident I have ever been and I absolutely love to teach and see people reach their fitness goals.

I'm a sucker for endurance and strength training and really enjoy teaching those fundamentals needed for pole.

I discovered pole fitness during a period of my life where my self confidence was incredibly low. I remember being nervous at my first class, but everyone was so encouraging and immediately I was hooked. I haven't looked back since! 

Although I  enjoy all aspects and styles of pole and pole dance, I have a particular love for spinning pole and flexible shapes.

Before I started pole, I remember watching videos online thinking ‘I’d love to be able to do that!’ but I told myself it would never happen because I thought I had zero flexibility or strength compared to these people! I turned up to my first pole class by myself feeling really anxious, but I absolutely loved it!

Teaching for me is so rewarding, I love to see my students leave feeling as though they have achieved something!

For the past decade I have dedicated a large majority of my time in a few disciplines which serve me well, these being Yoga, AcroYoga, Rock Climbing, Slacklining, Calisthenics & Circus.

In 2015 I started teaching Acroyoga and Partner Acrobatics to help people around me enjoy that great feeling Acro brings to the table. I have taught Acroyoga workshops in the UK, Spain & Greece and I teach on a regular basis in my home county of Shropshire.

I am a self trained circus artist. My speciality is contortion. 


I started training this 4 years ago and then branched out into other areas of circus. 

I now perform acro, hula-hoops, pole, aerial hoop, stilts and fire, as well as contortion.

I have been training in aerial silks and rope for five years now, and completed my formal teacher training under Paper Doll Militia in 2018.

I am particularly interested in dynamic movement, breaking down moves and techniques in a way that is accessible to each student regardless of previous experience and background. 

 I have been lucky enough to have trained with some amazing artists from all over the globe, and have taught in the UK for several years.  I cannot wait to share these beautiful art froms with you at KPole.

I joined KPole as a student in January 2017. I'd lost a lot of the confidence I once had, so when I saw a Facebook ad about the studio, i decided to give it a go, hoping it would help me to get that confidence back. 

I walked into the studio on my first day, met someone who would later become my best friend, got on the pole, and was immediately hooked. 

I am thrilled to now be part of KPole as an instructor and help others achieve their goals.
