I trained with the Pilates Foundation in 2004, working with some of the most renowned teachers in the UK. The Pilates industry has grown exponentially since then, and it has been amazing to help so many people discover the life-changing benefits of Pilates. I first discovered Pilates as a drama student. I was at the gym when I tried out this totally new class I'd never heard of before. I got hooked from Day One! Pilates helped with the physical demands of performing arts training, and has continued to support me through two children and beyond.
I'm on the teacher register of The Society For The Pilates Method, and have also trained in Pre & Postnatal Pilates with Mamas Pilates, in Pilates Studio Equipment with Rachel Rafiefar of The Thoughtful Body and with Pilates Tree Studios in London, and have done numerous courses with 1st and 2nd generation Pilates teachers from the UK and abroad.
Mark started teaching in 2016 after studying with BASI Pilates (Body Arts and Sciences International). His dynamic approach brings classes that are contemporary yet faithful to the original Pilates method.
We help busy people stay strong and flexible so they can do the things they love. We are passionate about offering the same quality and dedication to teaching Pilates that we were fortunate enough to experience.
Whether you're a seasoned Pilates devotee or a complete beginner, we look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
Pilates is named after its founder, Joseph Pilates, who started developing his method in the 1900's, eventually opening an exercise studio with his wife Clara after moving to NYC in the 1920's. Joe and Clara taught many prominent dancers and choreographers as their work became widely sought after. The Pilates method has been passed down by Joe's proteges, among them Eve Gentry, Kathy Grant, Romana Kryzanowska, Ron Fletcher, Carola Trier, who have passed down the work over the years. Pilates was brought to the UK in the 1970's by Alan Herdman. Still popular today with dancers and athletes, it is enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. Pilates offers something for everyone from beginner to advanced.
