"Strong is the new pretty"
Pilates for All!
I believe everyone can benefit from Pilates and the primary focus of my classes is to strengthen your whole body. Working with the breath to lengthen and tone muscles, creating balance and symmetry.
Using precise and controlled movement, with an emphasis on correct alignment to improve posture and core stability.
For all new clients I carry out a personal assessment and postural analysis, enabling me to build a fully personalised programme, taking into account your goals and physical requirements.
Through this physical conditioning we will not only improve your strength, flexibility and coordination, but also improve mental focus and allow the stress to release, leaving you with an overall sense of wellbeing and hopefully a smile and a glow!
The Pilates Reformer is a wonderful machine which offers resistance to your workout through springs and pulleys. It can challenge the balance and provide support to help you mobilise and stretch the body. Perfect for anyone new to Pilates or for serious enthusiasts looking to challenge themselves.
If you are recovering from an injury or working with limitations it can be an excellent rehab tool.
There is some evidence that you can achieve results faster by using the reformer and it has a huge celebrity following!

Pregnancy + Post Natal Pilates
Becoming a mum is a huge experience and changes you both physically and mentally. It is hard to find any time to do anything for yourself, let alone exercise!
BUT I can personally verify that you will feel so much better if you do manage to fit in a little self love once or twice a week and my flexible approach should make it easy for that to happen.
Through your initial assessment or post natal check, I will work out a safe and effective personalised programme to aid your recovery and ensure you are strong enough to function in your daily life as a busy mum.
I am happy to come and see you in your own home, or for you to bring your baby along to my studio in Hampton. I have a lots of toys to keep little ones occupied, they can hang out right next to your mat while you exercise and i'm happy to give cuddles, bottles or amusement as needed!!
