Olivia -Pilates Instructor
Olivia’s love of danced started at the age of 3. She then went on to perform professionally in the opening cast of Billy Elliot the Musical at the age of 13. She then transferred in tothe fitness industry, teaching group fitness at the age of 18. “I always really loved to dance but I’m so happy I do the job I do now; I absolutely love it and give my all to every class or client I teach. It gives me so much joy to see people doing something that really helps them -whether it be improving their health and physique, or rehabilitation after an injury.
I love that I can keep learning new things all the time; that’s why I think Pilates is so fantastic! I believe everybody should experience it as it’s just such an intelligent way to exercise, learning about how the body works and experiencing interesting and functional movements. Teaching Pilates classes on the mat or the reformer gives me such huge job satisfaction! I truly believe you will walk out of class feeling stronger, more flexible, with better posture and switched on in every single muscle in your body! It’s an amazing method to learn and to teach and is constantly evolving.
As Dance was such a big part of her life, she is very passionate and creative and likes to share that creativity in her classes, working hard to make every class different and interesting, thinking of new choreography all the time. No two classes are ever the same with Olivia. She loves to challenge clients and help them experience what therebody is actually capable of achieving!

Outside of PHW Anna has a keen interested in film & documentaries and also socialising with family and friends.
Oh and if you bump into her and she doesn’t smile and say hello, she isn’t having a bad day, she is an identical twin!

Hannah -Pilates Instructor
Hannah started practicing Reformer Pilates in 2016 after suffering from back pain in her early 20s. She was immediately hooked and this practice led her to start yoga too. A combination of both disciplines completely took the back pain away, and for the first time in Hannah’s life she had found a form of exercise she enjoyed … since then she has never looked back!
Hannah originally trained as Yoga Teacher in 2018, but after feeling as though the discipline lacked a focus on core strength, Hannah then trained with STOTT Pilates in 2022 as a Mat Pilates instructor and then a Reformer Pilates instructor.
She is passionate about the mind-body connection, the power of breath when used with movement, and using Pilates as a tool to prevent injury and complement busy lifestyles.

Viviane - Pilates Instructor
Viviane is a criminologist turned Pilates instructor (yes, an unusual career change!) with nearly 4 years’ experience of working in the Pilates industry – 2 years as a studio admin and marketing assistant and the following 2 as an instructor. She moved from the Canary Islands (Spain) to London when she was only 18 years old to do her degree and masters. She started doing Pilates when she was a university student, as a last remedy to relieve the acute lower back pain she used to suffer from.
Whilst training and working behind the desk of a Pilates studio she became inspired by the instructors working with her and she slowly fell in love with Pilates.
However, she focused more on working as a criminologist specialised in gender equality, until the demands and stress of her job deteriorated her mental health. At that point, she decided to take care after her health rather than pursuing a successful career and turned her hobby into her life-changing profession!
She trained with STOTT PILATES® in 2019 to become a Pilates instructor and now teaches Matwork and Reformer. She’s specialised in Pre & Postnatal, but teaches a great variety of clients, from people with hernias, osteoporosis, amputations to young sportspeople. Viviane is passionate about Pilates and a mindfulness lover. She describes herself as a ‘Pilates geek’, as she’s constantly studying and doing training courses to keep learning and specialising.
For her, Pilates is not just a method of movement or exercise, but a means to guide people in their journey to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy body, so that they can enjoy their lives to the fullest. As a proper Canarian, Viviane confesses that she has “volcanic heat running through her veins”. So get ready to give your body an energy boost, because she loves making her workouts nice and spicy!
