Way back, on Saturday 22nd May 1999 I qualified as an EXTEND Exercise teacher. Judith Holpin was my Course Director, Marna was the brilliant physio and exam day was overseen by Seona Ross and Anita Best.
And so began my 20 year association with EXTEND and my journey from teacher to Company Secretary, anatomy and physiology tutor and Course Director. From fun classes in church halls to producing an item at the Royal Albert Hall, meeting the Duke of Edinburgh and then becoming Chair of the Movement and Dance Division of the Sport and Recreation Alliance.
On Monday 20th May I will be celebrating 20 years of teaching with my class members and those who set me on my path - promoting health, increasing mobility and independence, improving strength, co-ordination and balance and counteracting loneliness and isolation.
