Pilates strengthens, tones and lengthens the body whilst concentrating and challenging the mind. It focuses on building your body’s core strength and improves your posture.
Joseph Pilates was born in Germany, in 1880. As a child he suffered from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever, and he became determined to overcome his fragility and develop a strong healthy body. He believed that the modern lifestyles, bad posture and inefficient breathing lay at the roots of poor health.
Based on his experiences he devised a series of exercises that enabled him to improve his health, and to develop a strong and fit body. During World War I in 1912 he was interned with other German citizens in a camp on the Isle of Man, where he trained other inmates in fitness and exercises. Here the beginnings of the Pilates Method began to take shape.
Pilates strengthens, tones and lengthens the body whilst concentrating and challenging the mind. It focuses on building your body’s core strength and improves your posture through a series of low repetition, low impact stretching and conditioning exercises.
It can be adapted to suit individual requirements, working the deep core muscles to correct posture, strengthen the back, abdominals and pelvic floor muscles and helps recovery after an injury as well as re-balancing the body after childbirth.
It helps you to develop an awareness of how your body works, helping your mind and body work in harmony.

I discovered Pilates several years ago after suffering from lower back pain. After several lessons I was amazed at how quickly Pilates made an improvement to my back, posture and body.
It was whilst having lessons myself I was inspired to find out more about how Pilates worked so effectively for me, and as a consequence of researching into Joseph Pilates philosophy and methods, I decided to qualify as a Body Control Pilates teacher myself.
I am qualified with Body Control Pilates as Level 3 Matwork teacher. Also I have undertaken additional training for teaching Pilates to older people, pre and post natal and to children.
Jo trained under Joanne Cobbe at The JPilates Institute in London.
She has the Mat 3 Pilates Instructor qualification and Level 3 Pre & Post Natal.
Jo is dedicated to improving clients’ health and well-being through Pilates, teaching individual and group sessions around South West London.
Susana started practising Pilates to manage the stress produced by tight deadlines in her previous career as a designer. She became passionate about the benefits that Pilates can bring to everyone’s everyday life and, as a result, she decided to become an instructor 12 years ago. Since then she is pleased to witness the positive impact she causes on the people who follow her teaching.
Susana has got a Level 3 Pilates Mat and equipment certification from a school with high standards in the teaching of the classical approach to Pilates. With her training, she is qualified to teach ante-natal, post-natal, older adults and rehabilitation. She also has got certifications in Modern Pilates in the use of props like resistance bands, balls, foam rollers, magic circle and smart bells, etc.
Susana believes that by giving attention to their bodies, people can accomplish both their professional and personal goals more efficiently.
I hold a degree in Dance from The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and I am a certified Matwork Pilates Instructor with the Michael King Method. Pilates was part of my dance training but it was only until I was introduced to Michael King that I was inspired to become an instructor. Since then I have been teaching group classes and private sessions to a variety of people of different ages and abilities,in both Greece and London.
