Emily has been teaching Pilates since 2010 and has gained a wealth of experience working alongside Osteopaths and other Pilates professionals at a premier Pilates studio in London. Emily is excited by natural movement and what works for an individual and is inspired by experimentation and playfulness. Emily is an eternal optimist and strives to inspire the people around her to feel good and enjoy moving their bodies! Anything that boosts and maintains her health and energy levels both mentally and physically are essential to her lifestyle as she has two small children at home. Through her previous work with Jeannie Di Bon at Create+ in Wimbledon, Emily has realised the potential for a gentle approach to teaching movement 'as a foundation' and how providing heightened awareness of breath in the body allows for movement without tension or pain. Emily is now Bristol based with her family and is excited to bring her workshops, classes and Private tuition to Bristol and the South West.
Emily loves teaching Mindful Movement and Pilates to groups of people with learning and physical disabilities at Choices 4 U in Active Centres around Bristol and in you can find her teaching Pilates at The Portland Therapy Centre in Staple Hill and at SBL Sports Centre in Oldland Common. You can book classes directly with the centres.
