The Pilates Element

Pilates classes in Longfield, Rochester, Chatham, Kent

Why Exercise with us?

I have been a member of FHT (Federation of Holistic therapy) for 17 years. I started out as a fitness instructor then found my passion for Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stones and other complementary treatments studying at Lewes College and Advance massage training with 'JING' in Brighton.
I have continually updated and progressed my knowledge throughout my career to FHT high standards of verification.
... As Bodywork Practitioner working in busy Osteopathic Clinics, my job was demanding and very physical, I had also had four children and ran a busy home life. So I took up Pilates to help my body and saw and felt the difference in my posture, core and overall wellbeing.
I was then set on a mission to help others gain better strength, coordination, balance, control, flow, concentration, breathing and stamina, and felt passionate about sharing my story.

After all, I love making people feel better and this way I could help people to help themselves!

Because of my good understanding of Anatomy and Physiology, I realised I could retrain as a Pilates instructor.
At 35 for a flighting moment, I panicked and thought 'can I do this at my age?' and I did hold back until I did" The London Night Shine Marathon 2014" and I thought if I can do that I can do this course!

I looked around and wanted to do the best courses available and was recommended Pilates Solutions in Surrey run by Belinda Buttery Exercise Science and Claire Worman Osteopathy, I learn better in a classroom environment rather than less expensive on-line courses available.
The practical hands-on teaching meant I could immerse myself in the course.

Recently I've completed YMCA Level 4 in Programming Physical Activity for Individuals with Low Back Pain, after previously completing Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Pilates (QCF) Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral. Small and Large Studio Equipment and Pregnancy Pilates.

Currently training with APPI to Teach Kids and Teenagers with the view of offering classes suitable for Children from Autumn 2019.
