About

Pilates Sessions is run by me, Abbie

My initial interest in Pilates stemmed from a desire to improve my posture and to better understand my body, in order to prevent back problems and other aches and pains. I could see that sitting at a computer for most of each day, in my marketing profession at the time, was having a detrimental effect on my posture; and so I started practising Pilates.

Teaching Pilates was a natural progression for me to understand more about the method and develop my own ability further. I am passionate about the benefits of Pilates and wanted to help others improve the way they move and to ultimately improve their physical health.

I chose to train with Body Control Pilates as they focus on the bio-mechanics of the body; how it moves naturally. Body Control Pilates have broken down the classical Pilates method, producing a range of levels for each exercise. This means that Body Control Pilates is accessible to everyone.

I am a qualified studio equipment and matwork teacher (level 3), teaching on apparatus including the Reformer and Cadillac. I have taught in Devon, UK and at Pilates studios in both Monaco and Nice in the South of France. I now offer BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE sessions online.
