Pilates in Leeds
You may have heard how Pilates can help with a wide range of physical pains and problems. You might have been told to do Pilates by your doctor or physiotherapist. I offer a wide variety of Pilates sessions in Leeds and cater for people of all ages and abilities.
Our bodies are designed to move and movement is vital for brain function, organ function and general health. Nowadays with cars, desk jobs and computers we are burdened with stiffness, pain and stress, impacting our quality of life. Pilates and other similar movement based techniques can help you improve your posture, regain or improve your mobility and core stability, which benefits your whole body and mind.
I have been teaching Pilates and movement since 2009 and have trained with Polestar Pilates, Modern Pilates and Body Control Pilates. I have also trained in functional neurology, Z-health gymnastics, yoga and body work, so I can offer sessions to help a wide variety of people. My clients range from 96 yr olds recovering from a stroke to 5 yr olds learning how to do a forward roll.
I’m fully qualified on all the Pilates studio equipment such as Reformer, Chair, Spine Corrector and Barrel in addition to small equipment such as rollers, balls, bands and rings. I specialize in rehabilitation from injuries/operations, pain, neurological conditions, sports specific and older populations, but enjoy teaching all levels.
I’m fully insured, DBS checked and am a welfare / safeguarding officer in a gymnastics club

The beginners Pilates class (taken by Sara) on Monday am is brilliant. I do have back problems and the exercises in her class are so useful and helpful. She is an asset to David Lloyd – Sheila Crossley
