My approach...

 

I teach Pilates to many different people. Primarily those I see most have suffered with painful backs, although there are a large number who have never had an injury and simply want to get stronger to help their sporting pursuits. I also teach new and expectant mums, ideal for the kind of issues that can develop in the ante and post natal periods.

 

I also see clients for one to one Pilates sessions. These appointments are brilliant for mastering difficult techniques, focussing on sports-specific Pilates exercises or simply for getting individual, one to one tuition on any aspect of your exercise or recovery.

 

I use many different techniques and pieces of equipment when teaching, but above all I pride myself on my classes being challenging and enjoyable in equal measure. My passion is helping others improve and better themselves and I hope I see you in class soon to begin your Pilates journey! 

 

 

Pilates: the history...

 
Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
— Joseph Pilates

 

Pilates was created in the early twentieth century by a man who believed that injuries were caused by imbalances in the body and habitual patterns of poor movement. This theory has since stood the test of time and scrutiny, and in the present day a large part of the Physiotherapeutic approach is devoted to correcting muscle imbalances in the lower back and other joints throughout the body.

Often where injury or poor movements patterns are present recovery is not automatic. Pilates is a brilliant tool for discovering where weaknesses lie, which then gives you the ability to correct them, safely, and learn how to move properly and confidently. 

 
Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness
— Joseph Pilates
