"We all deserve to live our best lives, to invest in ourselves and practice self-nurturing; when we take care of ourselves we live in the moment, we appreciate small pleasures and we radiate a vibrant energy that brings us, and those around us, closer to health and happiness".

Maria Hilliard

I am a certified Personal trainer, Yoga Teacher, Group exercise instructor, Bellydance instructor, Pre/Postnatal specialist, Nutritional therapist and Womens wellness coach. My ethos is to help women find the answers and apply the strategies that bring them closer to holistic wellness and happiness as they navigate their way through important life stages.

I can work with you in a one-to-one, group or online setting; creating a safe, bespoke and effective programme for you personally so that your individual circumstances, needs and goals can be catered to.

I draw upon a breadth of knowledge, training and experience to bring a truly holistic service to you that can include functional exercise, corrective exercise, dance, nutrition, mindfulness and strategies for stress management.

I am committed to continuing my own professional development so that I can bring you cutting edge strategies, based on scientific evidence, that bring you success.

I am a mother to two wonderful daughters and I know what it is like to have concerns about what is safe exercise and questions about how to best regain your strength, endurance and body confidence. I understand that we often face issues where our breathing, posture, continence, body image, body composition and self-esteem are compromised. That is why I apply my knowledge and answer these questions for you and provide you with effective strategies to manage them. I also teach you the whys, whats and hows so that you learn empowering wellness strategies that will support you throughout your life both inside and outside of our classes/sessions.

I also know how difficult it can be to find the time to schedule this all-important time for self-nurturing and that is why I coach time-effective strategies and offer a variety of services so that you can choose what best suits your schedule, personality and life.

I know that we are not perfect and that committing to healthy change can present challenges, that is why I meet you were you are at- no judgement-and we progress from there with positivity and apply the strategies that work for you.

So here I am, brimming with enthusiasm, eager to meet you and hear your story, and ready to help guide you towards a life filled with vitality!
