Welcome to Contemporary Pilates Nottingham, a project that I created and developed as a dedicated Pilates instructor, an idea which evolved as a result of a decade long experience of exploring and teaching the Classical Pilates Method.
I am a Stott Pilates trained teacher and an accomplished fitness instructor. I have taught in a gym environment, I have run Exercise to Music classes and I had spent long hours training as a ballet dancer prior to my career in fitness. (I am actually an art historian with a degree and a fashion stylist with a diploma as well. All that said to give you a better picture who you’ll be working with!)
Throughout my learning curve and own daily practice I had the opportunity to experience different types of mental stimulation and concepts of physical training. I learnt to recognise many forms of expression and self-help through art, sport or movement therapy. Effectively I made a personal choice and committed my professional life to the phenomena of J. H. Pilates’ work.
I derive my teaching approach from the original method and apply modern scientific research on bio-mechanics, anatomy and physiology to create a functional, contemporary technique.
I am committed to helping clients achieving their goals through personally structured programmes and carefully tailored classes to suit the individual abilities. I deliver personal training on an one-to-one basis in my purposely designed studio located in the heart of Alexandra Park, Mapperley. I also work away at the clients’ homes and teach classes at larger local venues as well as provide training for companies in a form of the Corporate Pilates. My daily work involves regular fitness instructing for some major brands local Fitness Clubs and supporting consultations of patients at Nottingham’s Physiotherapy Clinics.
I have a solid foundation in good education and continuously maintain the quality of applicable knowledge. I read popular publications, research professional sources, attend courses and workshops and most of all I learn from every client’s unique personality and body.
Teaching and mastering Pilates Method is not just a profession. For me it is my lifestyle, a way of expression, a form of therapy, an art of self-creation.
