About Grace….

I trained with the Pilates Foundation because I believe their course to be the most  well-rounded and specialised teacher training programme in the UK. The Pilates Foundation are recognised by the NHS and have the highest standards of teaching. After 18 months of full-time training, with over 1500 hours of study, I am qualified to teach both matwork and machine work and I continue to study and attend workshops.

I have been practising Pilates myself for 10 years, having discovered it when recovering from  a back injury that threatened my career as a dancer. I fully credit the Pilates method with my recovery from injury and continued to use Pilates to support my dance training. I fulfilled my ambitions by performing in various productions including the musical ‘We Will Rock You’. While I was performing I began to teach Pilates matwork within a small studio. I found this so rewarding and when I saw how my teaching was changing people’s bodies, I decided to take my teaching to the next level by training with The Pilates Foundation at Laban.

My training included all of the Pilates repertoire as well as somatic theory and anatomy and I attended workshops in Alexander Technique, Bowen Therapy and the Feldenkrais Method, all of which I draw from in my work. My 10 years of experience as a dance teacher also add to my teaching style.

I currently teach studio work at Laban, TrevorBlountPilates and In Touch Pilates as well as for Your Pilates across London. I teach in a unique fashion, tailoring classic Pilates exercises to suit individual needs. I believe that Pilates is for everyone; whether you are a sports person who wants to improve your performance, are recovering from injury or have never exercised before, I can develop a programme that will challenge and reward you.
