Great to try something new, and harder than it looks. I sit and stand all day, so my posture is poor and parts of my core are locked and immobile. Good to get some movement going in those areas. Thank you Dena #Pilates

I’m a Body Control Matwork Instructor, passionate about Pilates as it saved my spine! I stand for

Pilates is saving me for the second time!!!
Once a few years back when I had a spinal injury while I was performing and now after a C section. Thank you Joseph Pilates for the technique you created and thank you @bodycontrolpilates for teaching me how to use it. Looking forward to teaching it again soon x


I have been a little quiet on here of late as I have been a little preoccupied growing another human being. I now have a little pair of hands on my hands! Looking forward to coming back to work early next year!

I know I have allowed myself to watch so much of the news that I’m starting to be obsessive. Of course it’s good to stay a breast of things and yes we have to be in this together, especially to protect those that are risking their lives to save lives. However I’m going to try to not watch the news tomorrow, but instead try to deep breath on my mat for most if not all of the day!!!!!!!!!


Had an absolute blast @pennywithersstudio doing a Gyrotonic session. If you are in Glasgow go go go!!!!!

'Pilates-changed-my-life’ stories are annoying… but it did

An interesting read indeed!

theguardian.com Over three years the exercise regime took Rachel Cooke from terrible back pain to new levels of fitness. But it was a lot harder than she expected


These are the benefits of Pilates that anyone can gain.
All you need is space for a mat!
The more you do, the more you gain!

I love to send out videos to my clients to help them with their homework. Todays video went out to all my class attendees to focus on the Hip Roll for rotation and how we can further challenge ourselves while performing it, plus the Dart for extension.

The Oyster! A great exercise for hip rotation together with pelvic hip dissociation, featuring in tonight’s class at St John Ambulance Southwick.
Plus we have the heat to really mobilise our bodies.

Great advice from the Self Care Forum recommending Pilates for lower back pain. www.selfcareforum.org

Win a free one to one session with me in Southwick, normally worth up to £35.
To enter simply like, comment and share. I will then draw a name from a hat on the 18th August! Good luck.


Monday Morning thought: the spine can move in many ways not just forwards! Keep all directions of movement as a possibility within your spine and practice Pilates to maintain extension, rotation and lateral flexion to better support your daily life!


It’s Show time! Wuthering Heights @brightonopenairtheatre with @identity_theatre_company
It’s been a pleasure to work with the company on their movement on stage, plus some cast and creatives have taken to Pilates!

The Seven Deadly Sins of Dance Technique

Pilates and dance has always had a strong connection, here is an interesting article that states “Somatic practices such as Pilates can help to strengthen those stabilising turnout muscles”
have a cuppa and a read.....

dancemagazine.com Throughout your dancing life, you've heard the same corrections over and over. The reason for the repetition? Dancers tend to make the same errors, sometimes with catastrophic results. Dance Magazine spoke to eight teachers about what they perceive to be the worst habits—the ones that will destroy...


The weather may be miserable today but that sun shall shine again so in the mean time keep moving. Try a roll down if appropriate for you. Always return to standing correctly, being constantly aware of your body in space and how you can engage those centring muscles to support the spine. Enjoy x

Colin Thackery: I get up at 6am for Pilates and porridge

What an inspiring man. Just goes to show you its never too late to get down on your mat and start to practise Pilates!

standard.co.uk Colin Thackery, the 89-year-old Britain’s Got Talent winner, hadn’t even reached the show’s finale before Amanda Holden started undressing him.

Just watched #aroyalteamtalktacklingmentalhealth Such an incredibly important subject. I have had my own journey with mental health as I’m sure we all have. This is not a plug! Pilates gives me quiet time, to stop the inner chatter and just purely focus on the task. I have had clients say the exact same thing! Find something for you that helps quiet the negativity and focus your mind on the positive, whatever it maybe, allow yourself the time to find it.
