Pilates Instructor at All Things Pilates, London.
Who we are
All Things Pilates set out to help keep people fit to do the things in life that light them up. Today we do this through offering effective and engaging training programs utilising the Pilates repertoire of exercises and training principles from evidence-based science in exercise medicine and behavioural sciences. We are more than a team that teaches Pilates, we are a team that is continually learning and growing our practice through collaboration with fellow team members, clients and local community.
We believe in learning through personal practice and reflection as well as growing through giving and receiving feedback from our most valued connections. We leave space in our lives for the things in life that light us up and we believe in celebrating our team and the unique talents and character that they bring.
You will find our bright and spacious studio in Kingston Upon Thames nestled behind the world renowned Kingston School of Art.
