Pilates is core strength and flexibility training, a full mind body workout leaving you feeling taller, leaner, invigorated and more in control of your body.  Pilates can be modified for EVERYONE, the elite athlete or someone who has

never exercised, young and old.

Sessions are fun, focused and challenging and once the principles have been mastered, the benefits last a lifetime!

"It is the mind itself which shapes the body"

Movement and bodies have always interested me.

I have an Arts background and have always loved physical theatre, dance and sport. I came to Pilates as the reluctant rehab client and was told it would help with the back pain I was experiencing at the time.

As a beginner it look me a while to grasp what it was all about. Where was my pelvis?  What is a sacrum? The last time I heard the word ‘neutral' was in a chemistry lesson… I stuck with it, I was learning so much about anatomy, the way a body moved and how, with small movements and minor adjustments, big differences could be made.

I began to feel and look better and the niggling low back pain disappeared. An exercise programme that heals, creates strength, flexibility, is gentle on the joints - I was hooked...  I also discovered Pilates comes in many guises and the gentle beginner exercises gave me a solid foundation for the tough classical Pilates Matwork.  I went on to train with Body Control Pilates in 2007 and have been teaching ever since. A lot of my first clients still come to class, very recently one of those clients accomplished  a move that had eluded them for years (Full Roll Up) - we both got quite emotional!  Grab your mat - you never know, it might just work for you too.
