Hi, I'm Hannah and I'm the Lead Instructor at CycleBar Crows Nest. Originally from the UK, I started riding the first week that I arrived in Sydney. I loved the safety and security of being in a dark room with 45 mins to escape. From there I learned to rhythm ride. Combining my love of fitness and dance, I was hooked. It took me a while to realise that I was capable of holding space for others as an instructor but I was offered an opportunity in 2020 and I haven't looked back.
When I'm not spinning, I enjoy playing netball with close friends. The "team" element is something so important to me. I also love to travel, read and binge Netflix.
Being part of CycleBar is amazing. I love that we have a safe, inclusive space that is judgement free. Watching people realise they have the space and opportunity to empower themselves to feel better is so special. I also love the community vibe and the support we give each other.
My favourite ride format is Connect. For me spin is the closest thing I get to meditation. Being able to move together in time to the music, listen to your body and really just "zone out" is my happy and calm place. I also love having the opportunity to give our riders space to think, feel and be, without any expectation or ego.
A fun fact about me is that I danced in the Closing Ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012. I'm still dining out on it 11 years later!
