Your Pilates provides high quality Pilates in St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn and the surrounding area. I believe Pilates is for everyone. Your Pilates class experience will be tailored to your specific needs, whether you are looking for a remedial, rehabilitative or recreational outcome. Pilates brings together mind and body, the enjoyment of movement and a sound anatomical and somatic foundation and produces long lasting results.

I have experience in working with a whole range of remedial conditions with a particular focus on disc problems, sciatica, sacroiliac problems and general back pain. I have a special interest in working with pregnancy and postnatal women and regularly attend workshops to keep up with the latest developments in this area. I am particularly experienced in PGP, Diastasis Recti and pelvic organ prolapse.
