LINDA

I first came into contact with Pilates in 1985 and found that this form of exercise completely encapsulated all my beliefs about fitness, the Mind Body connection and the ensuing ongoing health of both body and mind.

Previously, I had trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (LGSM) in London, which inspired further my innate love of dance and movement. This lead me to explore different forms of exercise and movement, which included achieving an Aerobics Instructor qualification.

On discovering Pilates, I studied to become a Pilates Instructor, completing an apprenticeship at Wayne Sleep's Studios in London and working with Gordon Thompson (later of Body Control Pilates fame). I then instructed at Wayne's studio, and at other London studios, until moving to Devon in 1994. In 1993 I undertook further training with the Pilates Institute, to become an Instructor Member of the Pilates Institute.

My Diploma in Counselling qualification and ongoing trainings informs and underlines my belief that as Joseph Pilates said:

"It is the mind itself that shapes the body"
and that:
"Your biography becomes your biology"

I regularly attend Master Classes and further trainings in London, Spain and USA making sure that I am in touch with all the latest research into Pilates, and most importantly to challenge my own Pilates Practise!

"Pilates for Life is an unending Journey - it is not the arrival that is important but how the journey is conducted and experienced that matters."

Our classes are held in our own beautiful studios based in The Old Kennels at Boswell Farm. Set high up under the shade of an ancient Oak tree, the studios enjoy stunning panoramic views across the Sweetcombe Valley and across to Sidmouth and the sea beyond!

The studios have a professional sprung floor ensuring safety and comfort for all floor activities. Opening up the four large oak stable doors to combine the two studios into one large studio reveals two full length windows and two glazed doors which lead onto a south facing flagstone terrace - a perfect area for Pilates practice on a warm day.
