One to One Training

So sorry – due to my family having to work from home, during Covid I am unable to offer private training.
My Little Home Studio in Balsall Common

Tuition takes place in my little home studio in Balsall Common.  You will have a postural assessment at your first appointment.  This will help to identify any areas which may be problematic.  A unique exercise programme, using mat and studio equipment will then help to bring the body back into alignment and balance.

A few private classes are ideal when you are new to Pilates. Learning the basics with a teacher before you join a group can really help you to get the most out of your class.

Explore the more advanced, classical repertoire under the guidance of an experienced teacher.

If you are recovering from an operation or have an injury, a specific training programme, tailored to your unique requirement may be a good option to help regain strength and mobility.

An excellent option for improving strength and flexibility, correcting posture and to help balance muscle recruitment in every day life.

Pilates Studio Equipment



Pilates Reformer

The reformer is an exercise machine which uses springs, leverage, body weight and a sliding carriage.  Workouts consist of controlled, flowing movements.  You will improve the range of motion at your joints whilst stretching and strengthening muscles.  Exercises aim to improve your posture and balance.


Spine Corrector

This will help to restore the spine’s natural curvature, improving posture whilst lengthening and strengthening the torso, shoulders, back and legs.
