We are passionate about Pilates and use our wealth of experience to help you achieve a strong, flexible body that moves with ease.
“I trained as a dancer at London Studio Centre and regularly practised Pilates to stay injury free throughout my career. I loved how Pilates helped me control my long limbs and feel confident in my body. I was hooked from my first mat class and began my teacher training in 2013 with STOTT Pilates. I am trained to teach matwork, reformer, studio equipment and barre and love to combine the principles of Pilates with my dance background.”
“I have always worked in the fitness industry starting as an exercise to music teacher and dance enthusiast in the eighties. I experienced the healing and protective nature of Pilates after several bouts of low back and shoulder pain. I trained as a comprehensive teacher in 2006 with STOTT Pilates and started the first Pilates Esprit studio in 2008. I am currently training as a myofascial release therapist and doing a course in three dimensional functional exercise.”
“After years of enjoying Matwork Pilates, I started Reformer Pilates to assist recovery from a ski accident and knee operation. After appreciating the full benefits of Pilates, I went on to complete my STOTT instructor training in 2012 and am certified in both Matwork and Reformer. I have further developed my knowledge with courses in functional anatomy and workshops for shoulder girdle and lumbo-pelvic stability as well as pre and post-natal Pilates and fascial fitness. First and foremost I love my Pilates and continue to reap the benefits from doing it myself.”
“I became a sports therapist 15 years ago. I treat a wide range of soft tissue disorders and do a mean sports massage! I qualified as a Pilates instructor in 2013. Pilates became a passion of mine because within months of participating in classes my longstanding back issues virtually disappeared. I quickly realized that most of my exercise prescription for my sports therapy clients, were in fact tried and tested Pilates exercises. My two roles complement each other beautifully.”
“I started Pilates 13 years ago to help with back problems, after weeks the back problems disappeared and have never returned. I have been hooked ever since on the affect it has on the whole body and mind, I found it gives me a feeling of energy and positivity after every class. I can also recommend Pilates for pre and post-natal women, from my own experience, the difference a strong core and body awareness can make in child birth is remarkable! I felt it was a natural progression to go on and teach what I love, so that is exactly what I did. I completed my full comprehensive course with Polestar Pilates in May 2017 and have trained in mat, reformer and full studio equipment.”
