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!

Vick - Pilates Instructor
Victoria trained as a Pilates instructor after running her first marathon and realising how well the years of Pilates before had prepared her. “The focus on alignment and muscle balance in Pilates really helps you to stay injury free when you’re putting in the miles between classes”. She now specialises in working with runners, sharing her knowledge of running biomechanics and her passion for Pilates to work with them on form, posture, strength and flexibility. Her passion for movement however isn’t limited to runners.
“The more I lean about our bodies and how we move, the more im fascinated by how clever we are at adapting – I love to explain in class why we’re doing a particular movement a particular way and what we’re trying to train our bodies to do without thinking. It’s so satisfying when a client feedback they’ve suddenly noticed a change – from getting up off the floor more easily, to being able to touch their toes!”
She loves to offer feedback encouragement and plenty of tips in class to make sure you get the most out of each exercise – ensuring you leave feeling ‘everything’s been put back in its right place!’
