She is kind, caring, patient, respectful and considerate with those she works with. Samantha uses a diversity of approaches and tools in her sessions. In addition to her resources of dance and Pilates forms she brings her expertise as a certified Fighting Monkey instructor.  She has trained extensively in this unique methodology that focuses on developing the human body's natural movement, cognitive and creative potential. Her sessions are characterised by a playful spirit of exploration, which is largely inspired by the Fighting Monkey curriculum.
