Avril began her career as a scientist, obtaining a phd in Molecular virology. After working many years in this field she decided to pursue her passion in movement by obtaining a master’s degree in physiotherapy. She has worked as a physiotherapist since 2010 with professional sports teams and GP practices in the region. As an avid climber and a national level gymnast, it was natural that she would aim to help improve the health of others through the use of exercise and further trained in yoga and pilates. She now combines her work as a physiotherapist in GP practices in Norfolk with teaching clinical pilates and yoga classes.
