Urgent Covid-19 update:
At the moment, all face-to-face classes are cancelled due to Covid-19 precautions. Why not try an online Pilates matwork class from home instead? See the Online Classes page for details.

Pilates with Charles
Having completed a 2-year comprehensive teacher training programme with the highly-respected Anne-Marie Zulkahari and graduated with the Pilates Foundation UK, I am fully qualified to teach both Pilates matwork and equipment classes. My training in anatomy supports a keen interest in postural problems. Using carefully-selected Pilates exercises, I help my clients to improve their posture, reduce back pain, recover from injury or surgery and to deal with many musculo-skeletal issues.
Passionate about Pilates, I believe it is an ideal way for anyone to keep fit, supple, strong and prevent injury. My classes promote alignment and elongation, working to strengthen the body without building bulky muscles.
I welcome working with any client - no matter how stiff, weak, flexible or strong. Above all, I believes that Pilates should be enjoyable and try to ensure that my clients find it a positive, enlightening experience and are left with a sense of satisfaction and well-being.
