"It is the mind itself which builds the body"

- Joseph Pilates

Why Pilates?

Shape Pilates brand icon

Pilates has a rich and interesting history, originally called Contrology, Joseph Pilates created a method which has grown and adapted throughout the years. However, the principles of his practice have remained - breath, flow, concentration, centering, precision and control.

By staying true to these principles, the practice promotes mobility, strength and stability by using all the major muscle groups. Being low impact, we can use the Pilates through every season of our lives, adding props to challenge our mind and body us as we age and get deeper into our practice.

Matwork Pilates, along with being accessible to anyone, anywhere, can be just as creative, dynamic and challenging as the increasingly popular (and expensive) reformer classes.

There are many benefits of a consistent practice:

Strengthens & tones muscles
Improves Posture & confidence
Increases flexibility & reduces aches and pains
Helps you to remain injury free
Options for every level

A little bit about me

Shape Pilates brand icon

I am a Level 3 Pilates matwork instructor, who trained under the expert guidance of Joanne Cobbe, founder of JPilates Ltd. I trained in 2015 and eventually left my other career in online advertising to pursue Pilates full time. The business has grown alongside my 3 children, and since then I have qualified in pre/postnatal and Reformer Pilates. I bring all of these skills to the classes at Shape.

My goal is for everyone to feel the benefits of this beautiful practice, and to help people create movement habits that last a lifetime.
