Personal training

"A soothing authority"

I don't shout, I instruct

I don't order, I educate

I don't rush, I pace

You are unique, your personal training session is yours and is based on how you are feeling and what your individual abilities are.

I am educated to MSc level in Dance Science, I am up-to-date with research in the field and most importantly I am a very good teacher with so much to share with you.

Imagine the Kathak dancer as a finely tuned instrument, part of the orchestra, creating intricate rhythmical patterns with the movement of their feet and the sound of their bells. 

Above, they express their emotions with the use of their eyes, torsos, mouths and gentle turning of their wrists.

They can tell you magical stories without the use of words!
