Why Pilates: move better, feel better

Controlled, integrated movement designed to improve your ability to stabilise, strengthen, stretch & re-balance muscular recruitment patterns throughout the whole body 

helping you to feel stronger, healthier & fit to function in whatever you do.

Why join me for Functional Pilates …and the opportunity to use studio equipment?

  • Functional & therapeutic focus: especially desirable if you have an injury, health condition or have been referred by a Healthcare Professional (HCP).
  • Demonstrable enjoyment & ability in teaching new starters: to help develop increased awareness & connection with your body & movement.
  • Opportunity to benefit from spring- assisted Pilates apparatus as well as matwork: this adds variety, challenge or assistance to help you move with greater efficiency, flow & understanding.
  • Indivualised to your needs: personal, enjoyable sessions tailored to you.
  • Nurturing & motivating approach: learn to feel confident to practice at home or join a larger class if you wish.

Could this be you or someone you know?

  • Muscle/joint problems or back pain.
  • Acute or chronic health conditions.
  • Recovering from injury, surgery or illness.
  • Seeking improved mental well-being.
  • Adapting to life’s ongoing changes (e.g menopause, pregnancy, ageing, loss).
  • Wish to feel more confident before joining a larger class or practicing at home.

Does your Pilates teacher’s training match the UK NHS website recommendations?

  • The NHS website advises considering the experience & quality of your teacher’s training, as well as personality & rapport …and states that experienced teachers will have undergone a minimum of 450 teacher training hours.
  • The Pilates Foundation, with whom I undertook some of my training, demand these training hours including 100 hours of supervised teaching practice. Hopefully that is reassuring.

I have been anxious about Pilates before. Been worried about hurting myself and aggravating my injury. Gill’s clear understanding, medical background and obvious ability to listen gave me renewed confidence.

Her warm and friendly approach, combined with her depth of experience and medical knowledge, ensures she challenges me out of my comfort zone but always with sensitivity and kindness. My doctor suggested I try Pilates again, ………. and now after only six lessons I can already feel the difference. My body's more flexible, stronger and my balance has improved. I can't recommend Gill highly enough.

Gill’s pilates teaching is fun, focussed and highly professional.
Explaining the techniques in an easy-to-understand manner, Gill showed me how to do the exercises for maximum benefit. I had concerns about my ribs, which tend to dislocate, and she helped me stretch and strengthen safely and with confidence.
I highly recommend Gill’s teaching!
