“Angela is a Fantastic teacher. Great knowledge and very encouraging. Highly recommended”.
— Nicola (Petts Wood)
I am a comprehensive Matwork and Apparatus Pilates teacher, trained by Alan Herdman, with 20 years teaching experience at major health clubs in Kent and London.
I am also a Ballet Teacher registered with the Royal Academy of Dancing, an Acro Teacher, registered with Acrobatic Arts, an Advanced 'Les Mills' Body Balance Trainer, and a fully qualified Fitness Professional, , . Having practiced Pilates for the past 28 years I am completely hooked!
Lately I've been focusing all my attention on my own businesses teaching Pilates, Ballet, Barre, Dance Acro classes and 1-1s. Before then, I was involved with The Manor Clinic in Sevenoaks and The Village Physio in Farnborough, teaching the Pilates method to recovering physiotherapy patients. I have also been a Guest Pilates teacher to the students of the Central School of Ballet in London and a Guest Presenter at Champneys.
I was introduced to Pilates by the well renowned Alan Herdman (the first person to bring Pilates to the UK) whilst training to be a classical dancer and I was amazed how practising the subtle exercises that focus on strengthening individual muscles could make such a huge difference to my technique. He tutored me for a total of 4 years.
I am eternally grateful to Pilates, I love the effect it has on others and never tire of teaching it. I love how I can use it to help clients recover from injuries, cope with conditions such as MS or fibromyalgia or even to enhance their sports training.
Pilates is responsible for keeping me injury free during my training and professional dance career and supple and toned throughout two pregnancies.
“Had my first Pilates experience today with Angela, thoroughly enjoyed the session! Angela is a true professional, attentive & encouraging throughout & clearly passionate about what she does (so v well). Would highly recommend. Looking forward to next week already, thank you Angela x
