Alyth has suffered from backache since a child, not helped by 30 odd years spent stooped over an office desk. Determined to help herself, Alyth took up Pilates, becoming so hooked she decided to train to teach with Body Control. Half-way through training Alyth was diagnosed with Osteoporosis. Finding excellent support within the Pilates community she now undergoes a daily routine to maintain and build up muscle strength and bone density to help support her condition. In her spare time Alyth enjoys cycling around the Henley countryside with her border collie, Nordic walking and practising Pilates for her own enjoyment.
