Personalised 1-on-1 Pilates Sessions

With this information, they will devise a personalised programme of exercises and Pilates movements carried out on a mat or specialised Pilates equipment.

Endless Health Benefits

Pilates has a wide range of benefits for people of all demographics:

Build Strength

Pilates is great for building strength, especially for developing deep abdominal muscles that support the core. This helps keep your abdominal muscles tight and toned, supporting full body balance and stamina.

Prevent Injuries

Practising Pilates makes you less prone to injury as the body is conditioned to move more effectively. It keeps muscles in balance and enhances body awareness, coordination, and mental connection.

Recover Faster

Pilates is proven to assist and promote recovery as part of a rehabilitation programme following injuries and surgeries by helping improve range of motion, blood flow, flexibility, and more.

Improve Posture

Pilates helps to restore and maintain proper postural alignment. It can enhance spinal, scapular, and joint flexibility as well as lower back and abdominal musculature.

Increase Balance

Pilates not only improves strength, but balance and gait. Training balance not only improves stability, but also results in improved coordination and reaction time.

Tone Your Muscles

PIlates tones the body and forms lean muscle. As you build strength, you will notice greater muscle strength and firmness, without increased muscle mass or bulk.

That is the guiding philosophy of Fiona since she was diagnosed with degenerative disc and spondylolisthesis in her early 20s which her doctor attributed to her mountain climbing days.

She enjoys meeting people from all walks of life in the course of her work and seeing clients benefit from their Pilates sessions. Witnessing how her clients are able to return to the activities that they love, gives her great joy and satisfaction. Fiona has a keen interest in clients requiring rehabilitation, especially back related issues. And being a mum herself, both pre/post partum programs, which have kept her supple yet strong throughout and after her pregnancy.

She holds numerous certifications including the Polestar Pilates Education – Comprehensive Studio Certification, Pre/Postnatal Pilates Specialist Program from The Centre for Women’s Fitness, the Oov Fundamental Level 1 and Apparatus certification, TRX Suspension Training, Anatomy Trains in Motion, and more.
