I’m Tamara. A Spanglish dreamer and trained Pilates Instructor, Yoga Instructor, Reiki Master and trainer, and healthy foodie. I am a lover of learning, a sharer of knowledge and a seeker of adventures.


I love embracing life. I love seeking out new adventures and being in nature with those close to me. I love to challenge myself and expand my horizons. I love being inspired by places and faces and being the source of inspiration to those who need it. If I can pursue everything I’m passionate about, as well as helping myself and others around me grow, then I’m truly happy.


I have been practising Pilates & Yoga since 2004.

It took times of pausing, to see how far I have come and embraced the beauty that surrounded me when I was too busy zipping through ambitions, goals and to-do lists. One of the things that helped me the most with this is movement; when life got me into a spin, movement centred me. It also took some amazing souls who inspired me and picked me up when I needed it the most… and it’s taking a lot of self-love, self-worth, and intuition. Always a work-in-progress.

I’m Dave. A proud scouser that loves all forms of movement and exercise. I have over 20 years experience in many fields of movement including professional athletics, different forms of martial arts, rock climbing and bouldering.


When I'm not enjoying time with my family, teaching or training you'll likely find me engrossed in a book or educational video of some description. I love the field I work in and treat is a pursuit that I will be involved in for the rest of my life.


Long story cut short, I broke three bones in my lower back and it took a number of years to get right. I was offered serious surgery and told I could be using a cane for the rest of my life.  It was a Personal Trainer that really helped get me moving again; and it was him that motivated me to become a Personal Trainer myself. 



Giving context. It sounds simple, right? Well it is and it's a philosophy I believe deeply in. Once we've explained to people why we are doing certain things we give them the assurance that what we are asking them to do has a purpose. When this happens and people connect with what we're doing they are likely to stick with it and that is when progress happens.
