About us

Pilates Live is all about making Pilates accessible.

We aim to create a similar, progressive experience that you may have by joining a local class – but in your own environment.

As a Physiotherapist I opt to use the The APPI method of Pilates. A modified version of Joesph Pilates original movements. The exercises have been adapted from some of the original sequences developed in the 1920’s to create a graduated system of specific exercises that can be used to rehabilitate from injury, improve posture and regain muscle control, strength and flexibility in a safe and effective way. 

My background

I have been a qualified physiotherapist for over 10 years and I now specialise in musculoskeletal (joints and muscles) conditions. I also have a post graduate certificate in Sports Injury Management (PGCert). I would often use Pilates exercises to help rehabilitate and improve a client’s condition or injury.

This inspired me to train further in the Pilates method and become a Pilates instructor.

I love to learn new skills and ideas for my classes and continue to attend courses with the APPI to develop my knowledge and skills as a Pilates teacher.

I have been teaching Pilates for a number of years now and I enjoy seeing client’s benefit and improve from the exercises. I hope Pilates Live will be an affordable and achievable way for many people to benefit from doing regular Pilates exercises.

My story

Two years ago I had my first child. A beautiful boy called Jack. He is everything to my husband and I. But life since Jack arrived has changed. For all the enjoyment he brings us, it is undeniable we have less time to ourselves. A lot less.

Finding time for Pilates

I have met several mothers who are keen to do Pilates, and in some instances have been recommended Pilates by their doctor. But just cannot get to a class regularly, or wish to pay for classes they cannot guarantee they’ll be able to make.

From this personal experience, and from discussion with others, the idea of Pilates Live was born. A platform where you can access Pilates classes, simple, cheaply…and anywhere (with an internet connection anyway). As a Physiotherapist and an experienced Pilates Instructor, I believed I could offer this service.

The progressive Pilates experience

I really wanted to emulate the ‘Pilates Class’ experience as much as possible – the experience of building up your strength through regular series of classes with specific focus. Not simply a library of videos that do not relate to each other. So I record three classes every week, which are available to watch for up to two months, but then they’re updated!

I hope you like the classes.
