About Us

Alison

Alison Plant Fully Qualified Pilates Instructor in Leeds

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.

Qualifications

  • Modern Pilates Logo

We are insured through Balens.

  • The one-to-one sessions have helped me to understand the mechanics behind my movement, so that I am more aware of my posture and able to correct it. Alison quickly identified my problem areas and has taken me through exercises which cater for my specific needs and lifestyle. I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in my walking and cycling. My back and my core are more stable.

    I feel fitter, healthier and more confident physically. Worth every penny.

  • I am so glad I found out about Alison’s classes. After the first few group classes, I needed to know more and treated myself to a course of the one to one sessions.

    It was a good decision as I had the use of quality equipment plus Alison’s sole attention getting to know my problems and working with me. Thank you so much Alison, it is really helping my aged muscles you really are a good instructor.
