I'm Jill, your Community Pilates and Exercise instructor
As a youngster, I enjoyed middle distance and cross country running at county level and I represented the English Schools team. I have run 4 marathons but now prefer the more relaxed experience of running off road with friends, in the beautiful peaks and dales of Derbyshire, South and North Yorkshire!
After training as a teacher I taught in primary and special schools and worked as a Community Teacher for 5 years. I was involved in Parenting Education for 14 years and then worked with the SureStart programme supporting 0-5 year olds and their families for 10 years.
Since retiring I trained as a Pilates teacher. I started Community Pilates and Exercise as I am particularly interested in helping all ages to keep strong and mobile, fit and flexible while maintaining good posture. I keep up to date through CPD training sessions.
