Move better, be in control of your body

Why Pilates?

One of my passions is to apply my Physiotherapy knowledge to guide people towards better movement patterns & achieve this through Pilates. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations. . I aim to transform your body and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health.

I started doing Pilates in 2009 and found the benefits for my own body so profound, I started my training a few years later in 2012.  I gained my APPI Certified Matwork Instructor Qualification in January 2012

1:1 Assessment

My Pilates care starts with a 1:1 assessment which takes up to 75minutes.  This is crucial to establish

the way your body moves, compensations you may have & what areas you might need to focus on. You will leave the session with an understanding of the Pilates key principles. This allows you to get the most out future pilates - be that on a 1:1, class or online class basis.

It is especially important for post natal patients or for anyone with any particular medical background that can impact on appropriate selection of exercises or identify if further 1:1 sessions would be more appropriate. 

After the 1:1

You can chose to book further 1:1 sessions, attend classes or sign up for my online subscription service for weekly sessions.

The huge benefit of further 1:1 sessions is I will build you a customised plan based on your health, schedule and more importantly, fitness goals

Making Fitness Fun

Different approaches have adapted Joseph’s original work to specific populations.  The APPI Pilates Method is the creation of two Australian Physiotherapists, Glenn and Elisa Withers. The method is based on over 16 years of clinical practice in treating movement dysfunctions through their roles as world-leading Physiotherapists and Pilates teachers. It combines all that we know scientifically with the more traditional Pilates focus on training fluid movement.  Each of the 34 original Pilates matwork exercises have been analysed with reference to the vast body of biomechanical, anatomical and clinical research.  

Through its unique step-by-step method, the APPI Program ensures that Pilates is accessible to everyone.  In 2019, their method was being taught across 22 countries.

The APPI Method is much more than just a way of toning a person physique but is a research-based clinical application of improving the way a person moves and functions in their everyday life.  The overall aims of the APPI Pilates method are to develop the deep, postural ‘core’ muscles that support the spine throughout postural movement, enhance normal movement patterns and improve overall body alignment.

About Pilates: About Me


The history of Pilates – Joseph Pilates. Quotes from the man himself:

“Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.”

“Concentrate on the correct movement each time you exercise, lest you do them improperly and thus lose all vital benefits.”

“You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions.”

 “Change happens through movement and movement heals.”

Joseph believed that injuries were caused by imbalances in the body and habitual patterns of movement.  He observed that when a person had a weakness or maligned area, that person overcompensated or overdeveloped another area to achieve a certain functional movement.  This critical need to correct malalignment and re-educate the body to prevent recurrence is a belief that is that over 50 years later is hailed as the phenomenon of the muscle imbalance theories of physiotherapy today.
