IT qualifications
Matwork, Reformer

Additional credentials and designations
Sports Physical Therapist and rehabilitation specialist

Victoria became interested in STOTT PILATES® in 2010 when she took her Matwork course to work alongside her Sports Physical Therapy practice in a local clinic. She knew from her first day on the course – and an inspirational IT – that she wanted to eventually, with time and experience, do the same. Victoria became an Instructor Trainer for Merrithew specializing in STOTT PILATES in 2013. Victoria now ties the Pilates method with her 10 years of experience as a sports physical therapist. The two modalities combined provide very strong and effective results. Patients also grow to love the Pilates side of treatment and often end up continuing after having been rehabilitated, some even becoming instructors themselves!
