All Welcome!

These movement workshops and regular online classes are designed to give you insight into how we can improve our quality of life with a movement practice. Each Pilates based movement session helps in calming the nervous system and in gradually bringing childlike qualities back into our bodies. Join us to help yourself stay mobile - feel more freedom in movement and help us to Feel Good! These classes, movement meetings and workshops are hosted via Zoom and are gentle. There is no pressure to try every exercise ... There is no right or wrong way, you just do what you can and join in what you want to. Everyone is welcome! 

Inspired by child’s play, Pilates, Somatics, animalistic behaviour and a deeper understanding of the human body these workshops and classes will be fun, relaxing and help improve the function of your whole body. During each session you will practice techniques and exercises to calm and tone your nervous system, Footwork to increase balance and reduce risk from falls and functional movement strengthen and keep you feeling young in mind and body. 

Each element of the work is designed to gently release tightness and unnecessary tension and work towards balancing, toning and strengthening your body. 

We will often end each workshop with a deep relaxation. A mini retreat for your mind and body.

Anybody can join in regardless of fitness or experience. We collectively create a kind and caring (virtual) space from the comfort of your own home where everyone feels connected and truly welcome. I aim to guide exercises which are inclusive for all. The practice is gentle enough to accommodate people with injury. Please note: You must complete the Health Questionnaire and Waiver prior to joining a class.

The Workshops

Scheduled workshops which offer breathing techniques and movement practice to strengthen your body. A chance for you to restore, relax and re-energise. Inspired by Pilates and Yoga. Come along to learn about how your body likes to move and practice gentle and effective exercises and relaxation techniques.

Everyone Can Benefit

The workshops are designed to deeply relax you as well as provide the foundations to healthy movement and posture. They are perfect for people getting back to movement after injury or pregnancy and suitable for complete beginners who have considered trying either Yoga or Pilates. A brilliant opportunity for those who don't feel able to commit to a regular class each week or as a valuable reconnect with your mind and body if you already exercise regularly. These workshops are educational and aim to teach increased body awareness and provide the benefit of moving with less tension and more ease. Come along for a chance to stretch and gently tone your body.

Feel the benefit of gentle movement and breathing techniques which release tightness and tension, enrich your nervous system and work towards supporting and enhancing functional daily activities and other exercise disciplines. Each session finishes with a deep relaxation. A mini retreat for your mind and body. In the winter months workshops will be candle lit providing an extra relaxing environment.
