We believe that “Movement is Great Medicine for the Body” however not just for the body, but the mind as well. It allows you to de-stress and reset what life, sends your way.
We have over 20 years teaching experience in the Ribble Valley. Our Pilates & Yoga journey started 5 years ago. We set off on a 2 week intensive Pilates course in London, we learnt so much in these 2 weeks, firstly that Julia had no core strength and secondly that a lot of practice and support can allow you to follow your passions. Two years later after much persuading by Vicky, we embarked on our Yoga teacher training and we both fell in love with this practice.
Over a short period of time we have gone from 1 class in Simonstone to 5 classes, in Read, Simonstone & Sabden. We have embarked on numerous adventures – Yoga, Pilates and Spa Days at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel Nr The Ribble Valley. Yoga & Pilates Holiday to Tuscany, the feed back was very humbling. We have workshops planned at the Read & Simonstone Village Hall. and hopefully very soon we will be going on-line so you can workout whilst on holiday or if you can’t make a class.
We have found Pilates and Yoga complements our other professions of Sports Therapy and Sports Massage and feel we can give a deeper insight to our students on how the body works.
We both believe that Pilates & Yoga can take you on a journey of self discovery and we are very passionate teachers who strive to help their students achieve their best version of themselves.
