Pilates Personal
And Women’s Health

Hi, I’m Dawn. I offer private Pilates sessions to individuals and couples from my home in Leominster, with specific focus on back pain management, Exercise Referral and Women’s Health.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a flowing sequence of controlled movements, coordinated with breathing, which helps the body to move freely with a strong core and good alignment.

Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, Pilates can be modified to suit different abilities. When I joined my first class, as a student, in 2010 I was recovering from a spinal injury and Pilates was so instrumental in my recovery process that I changed careers from landscape gardener to Pilates Teacher! It can make a difference to your life too.

By strengthening deep stabilising muscles, Pilates will subtly improve your posture, help you move efficiently with stronger core support and good alignment.

So if you’re looking for a low impact type of exercise which will tone and sculpt your body, and restore muscle imbalances to help you move better, Pilates is a great place to start.

I’ve been sharing its benefits with men and women of all ages over my last 11 years of teaching in Herefordshire. I’d love to share it with you too.

To find out how Pilates can increase your health and wellness, get in touch.

Private Sessions

If you are new to Pilates or have been advised to start Pilates by a medical professional as part of your rehabilitation from injury, then private sessions are your best option and can be a stepping stone towards joining a general pilates class.

In your first one to one session you’ll receive a thorough postural assessment to identify any muscle imbalances and be shown which exercises best support your body’s alignment.

The hourly sessions are held in the relaxed, comfortable space of my home in Leominster, where mats and equipment are provided.

I offer on-going support and motivation, to progress you on your journey back to easier movement including personalised videos and exercise sheets, so you can practice at home if you choose.

Womens Health and Fitness

For women in midlife experiencing the changes of perimenopause and menopause, I offer private consultations and personalised fitness programmes, based on latest sudies and research for this age group.

I’ll show you how you can integrate Pilates into a wider fitness plan, based on restoring hormone balance to address some of those troublesome symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, brain fog, poor sleep, anxiety and lethargy.
