Jacqui trained in clinical pilates at Pilates Training Solutions which is one of the leading Pilates training centres in the UK, and accredited by REPs and CYQ. She has since attended many courses including a workshop with Pilates Elder Jay Grimes, who studied with Joseph Pilates in New York. She is always on the quest for Pilates knowledge and mixes Joseph Pilates' traditional classical exercises with some medical advances closely associated with the contemporary method.
Jacqui has over 35 years of ballet and Pilates experience. Having trained initially with the Royal Ballet School and the Royal Academy of Dancing, she went on to read social sciences at the University of Glasgow, and whilst there continued ballet classes at the Scottish Ballet. Her masters degree led her into a marketing career, where her passion for dance continued in the form of Cecchetti Ballet classes at London Studio School, followed in 2006 by a Dance Diploma at Sadler's Wells theatre in London, where she became acutely aware of the importance of Pilates to enhance performance in dance and sport.

They include complete beginners through to keen sportsmen and women wanting to improve their game, by increasing flexibility, improving posture and learning the lateral breathing techniques that Joseph Pilates developed to help cleanse the lungs, and enhance postural control; to those referred to Pilates by a physiotherapist as a means to rehabilitate after an injury, or work on their core to alleviate back and postural problems.
