Sophie qualified as a Certified Pilates Matwork Teacher at Body Control Pilates London and is a member of the Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA)
Sophie took up Pilates over 10 years ago whilst suffering from work related stress. Through attending classes she gained more body awareness and learned how to breathe more efficiently. She found that by applying some of the Pilates principles to her every day life, her anxiety reduced and she was better able to manage stressful situations. Over time she also noticed that her posture changed, she was standing taller and had increased flexibility and strength.
Sophie believes that moving well is as important as eating nutritiously, her aim is to help people discover and enjoy movement in their own bodies so that they can feel better both physically and emotionally.
Since qualifying as a Pilates Teacher, Sophie has gained an extra qualification in Pregnancy and Post Natal Pilates, and has undertaken further training in Pilates for Bone Health (Osteoporosis/Osteopenia).
Sophie is currently undergoing further training on Mindfulness through Pilates, and also on Pilates with breath and movement strategies for Respiratory Diseases, and hopes to hold some workshops on these later in 2019.
Sophie teaches Pilates classes and private sessions on Tuesday afternoons.

Noreen is currently studying for an additional level 4 qualification in Pilates for Lower Back Pain.
Noreen teaches Pilates classes at the Studio on Sunday mornings.
Neil trained and qualified at the North London School of Sports Massage and at both STOTT Pilates and Body Control Pilates and is a full member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM),
With a background in Athletics, Gymnastics and Martial Arts followed by a career as a Firefighter, Neil understands the strain put on the body both in physical training and in day to day life and work.
Neil is fascinated by the body’s ability to produce compensation patterns very quickly following injury, or over a period of time from poor postural habits. He holds an additional qualification as a Biomechanics Coach™ and is able to screen for a number of ‘hidden’ compensations which can cause injury and pain elsewhere in the body. This enables him to target specific problem areas and prescribe simple ‘take home’ exercises to help rebalance the body, thus in many cases facilitating a quicker and longer lasting recovery and aiding the prevention of further injuries.
Neil qualified as a Certified Pilates Matwork Teacher with Stott Pilates in London, and as a Certified Pilates Reformer Teacher with Body Control Pilates London. He enjoys bringing the benefits of Pilates to the male population with his 'Men Only' class in addition to his mixed classes. Neil has also undertaken further training in Pilates for Osteoporosis/Osteopenia, and Pilates for Pregnancy and Post Natal.
Since graduating in Sports/Remedial Massage in 2006, Neil has practised sports massage at Fore Street Osteopathic Clinic, One Addison Complementary Health Clinic, Fitness First Leyton and at various sporting events including the London Marathon and 24 hour endurance event Spitfire Scramble.
Neil teaches Pilates classes on Monday mornings and evenings, Wednesday and Friday mornings, and is available for private appointments on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday afternoons, Fridays from 12pm through to evening and Saturdays 8am-1pm.
Beth qualified as a Certified Pilates Matwork Teacher at Body Control Pilates London and is a member of the Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA)
During a desk based career as a Journalist, Beth remained active by competing in many half marathons, and first came to Pilates when rehabilitating from a series of running injuries and fractures in her knee and ankle. Pilates made her think of her body in a different way, so much more aware of the importance of building strength rather than focussing purely on cardio.
During this time she was diagnosed with Osteoporosis. Following a programme of targeted Nutrition and Pilates weight bearing and resistance exercises, she managed to increase bone mass and her diagnosis was downgraded to Osteopenia (the pre-cursor to Osteoporosis). Beth continues to strive to further increase her bone density, and her journey has sparked a personal interest in bone health and strength. She will complete her Pilates for Bone Health qualification later in 2019 with an intent to specialise in this area.
Beth teaches Pilates classes at the Studio on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
