About PilatesWise


I set up Pilateswise in 2012 with the aim to bring high quality Pilates teaching to West Sussex. 7 years on the experience, knowledge and hands on correction I offer as a teacher means that PilatesWise has built up a great reputation for an excellent standard of teaching and great results.

I am passionate about Pilates, I live and breathe the pilates method each and every day. I am focussed and dedicated and strive to pass on that passion.

To achieve the results I have I remain absolutely committed to ongoing professional development, to keep learning, to seek knowledge and to pass that on to my clients.

I have been fortunate to learn from the best in the Pilates teachers in the world, including Lynne Robinson, Miranda Bass, Anula Maiberg, Ton Vogt and Michael Fritze, Benjamin Degenhardt to name just a few.

I also regularly attend a fabulous teachers class with colleagues from around the local area and beyond and enjoy the sharing of knowledge and expertise, and good movement amongst like minded people.


I am Body Control Pilates® qualified, an internationally recognised certification.
