Hello there. I have been teaching Pilates for nearly 16 years now and I’m still on a journey really – of finding out more about Pilates, watching it evolve and incorporating the latest thinking into my teaching. I’m also finding out more about my body – what it can do, what it apparently can’t do and how I might be able to change that!
I’ve carried on studying over the years and in particular I have qualified to teach Pilates on the Reformer. This year I’m completing two further qualifications: one is to enhance my teaching and the repertoire of interventions I can use with clients, especially but not entirely in 1:1 settings – I will be a qualified Intrinsic Biomechanics coach. In addition, I’m training on two further pieces of Pilates studio equipment: The Wunda Chair and the Spine Corrector. We have them both in the Studio.
If you want to read about where I was up to in Pilates, circa January 2017 click here to go to the blog post.
I have a few other strings to my Exercise Instructor bow – I teach aerobics, Circuit Training, Chair Based Exercise and I’m a Gym Instructor. The latter, I no longer teach in the gym but I do make use of all my Strength Training knowledge when teaching, particularly in 1:1 teaching but also in group classes.
I came to exercise relatively late – only setting foot in a gym when I was 31 and have done other stuff. I have a Science background and trained and worked as a Nurse before doing a long stint in Office Admin.
I have two kids, the odd hobby (like a garden with too many weeds), too many wrinkles, a mild case of Menopause and a long list of things to do when I retire.
I’m Kati and I have been teaching Pilates for over 8 years now. I am an experienced Instructor who teaches classes, one to one tuition and Specialist pre and postnatal Pilates. I teach all ages and abilities from beginners right up to advanced participants.
I have taught a range of clients from people wanting to improve their core flexibility and strength, through to those needing a more rehab based approach when recovering from injuries or post surgery.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to becoming stronger, leaner and pain-free !
Hi, I’m Charlotte. My family have lived in Leeds since I was young. I love walking and cycling around The Dales, listening to music and drinking a bit too much coffee.
So now for the serious stuff: I was introduced to Pilates through rehabilitating from my own spinal injury. This process of slowly re-building strength has informed my holistic approach to movement and exercise as a means to improve confidence.
I am fully qualified to teach Pilates Matwork, and in Personal Training and am currently working towards being an Exercise Referral Practitioner. With this grounding I have experience with a variety of clients of mixed ages and abilities.
Whether working 1-to-1 or within a group setting, I aim to create a welcoming environment with a focus on education that will help you understand your body and develop strength & mobility for a better quality of life.
