Leominster Pilates classes and Private sessions

Welcome! I’m Dawn.

I’ve been teaching mat based Pilates classes and private clients in Herefordshire, since 2011 after training with the Pilates Institute. I took up Pilates originally to help me recover following a back injury, and the results were so positive I decided to change my career from landscape gardening, to teaching this effective form of exercise!

So whether you are looking for a low impact form of exercise  to help correct muscle imbalances following an injury, or to maintain your current fitness level so you can keep moving well with added strength and mobility,  you may want to give Pilates a go. 

Many of my class members have commented that Pilates also helps with their mental wellbeing, aiding relaxation, and cognitive function.

We coordinate breathing with movement making it a mindful practice, so there’s little opportunity to worry about that to-do list!



Classes are booked in advance in 6 week blocks. You can find out where we are in our programme under class information.

Please contact me to check availability and to book a space. You will need your own mat and we do use small equipment which can be purchased from me should you need to.


Prefer individual attention?

One-one personal training sessions are a good option if  you want a personalised fitness programme , to help you achieve your specific goals or to prepare you for joining a mixed level class.

If you are having treatment and have been referred to take up Pilates as part of your rehab, I would advise having one to one sessions . I use biomechanics assessment techniques to form a picture of how your body is functioning and from that identify specific exercises to help address any muscle imbalances to restore healthy movement.
