Jo Munro 

Originally I was trained as a dancer, specialising in ballet and contemporary dance, however I had to retire early due to injury. Pilates was integral in my recovery and it seemed like a natural progression to train as a pilates teacher and to pass the knowledge on to other people. I began teaching Pilates matwork in 2001, and have continued my Pilates education to cover all of the Pilates Studio equipment. This comprehensive training enables me to teach on the Reformer, Trapeze Table, Combo Chair, Ladder Barrel and with all of the small Pilates equipment.This year I was certified as a Level One GYROKINESIS® Teacher.  This is still relatively new to the UK, and I am one of only a few people in Scotland who are able to teach this technique.I have recently completed my training and I am now fully qualified with The European College Of Bowen Studies as a Bowen Therapist.
