Pilates and Women’s Health Coach

Hi, I’m Dawn.

I offer private Pilates sessions to individuals and couples , and specialise in back pain management and women’s health in midlife.

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.

My training has been in remedial/clinical pilates as opposed to ‘fitness pilates’ and I’ve had the pleasure of sharing its benefits with men and women of all ages over my last 11 years of teaching in Herefordshire.

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 and I’d love to show you how.

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.

These include a thorough postural assessment and prescribed exercises specifically for your body.

You’ll receive on-going support and motivation, to progress you on your journey back to easier movement. I offer a personalised video option, which gives you bespoke exercise videos specifically for your body and fitness goals, so that you know you’re working on the areas you need to work on.

Womens Health and Fitness

For women in midlife, we need a fitness programme based on changing hormones , which addresses those troublesome menopause issues like hot flashes, belly fat and brain fog! I’ll help you integrate Pilates into a wider fitness plan, based on restoring hormone balance using the latest studies and research.

Pelvic health

For ladies recovering from hysterectomy, Pilates has huge benefits in restoring core function, pelvic floor, and reducing risk of prolapse. I offer a support programme full of invaluable information for women both pre and post surgery, to aid a full recovery. You’ll find more details on the hysterectomy programme under ‘Womens health coaching’ .
