Our Pilates teachers offer Pilates for all levels.
Rebecca helps men and women in their mid-life improve their health and well-being by teaching them how to re-discover their mind-body connection, and understand just how good their bodies are designed to feel through the methods of Body Control Pilates and Barre. She is passionate about the benefits pilates and barre can bring when practised consistently and is committed to helping you live your best life and change the way you move forever.
Rebecca has been practising pilates for over 20 years and believes that Pilates is the key to strength, flexibility and mobility for life and that it can benefit everyone. Learning the art of good posture and core stability, and reminding your mind that you have a body, will enable you to move safely and effectively, avoiding injuries and unnecessary wear and tear on your body. Joseph Pilates philosophy was always that we should be able to move with maximum efficiency with minimal effort and this is the ethos behind Rebecca’s training.
Rebecca has trained with Body Control Pilates and continues to study intensively to the high standards they insist upon and is proud to hold their pilates matwork and reformer certification at level 3 in the National Qualifications Framework.
Rebecca also holds the following certifications:-
Pilates for Performance – Body Control Pilates.
Pilates for Runners – Body Control Pilates.

Laura’s background is in theatre, having spent ten years as a professional actress before training as a Pilates teacher. In her friendly and welcoming classes you will find a broad range of body shapes, genders, ages and fitness levels.
Combining the strength, mobility and flexibility of Pilates with deeply relaxing self massage techniques, her classes nourish both your body and mind.

She teaches classes in and around Colchester including: Beginners, Improvers, Healthy Bones Pilates (for people with Osteoporosis or Osteopenia) and Pregnancy/Postnatal.
When she’s not teaching Pilates you can find Laura looking after her young family, cycling, reading books, watching RuPaul’s Drag Race and tending to her wildly uncontrollable allotment.
Alice has been a remedial massage therapist since 2006 and qualified as a Pilates instructor in 2017. She trained with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and regularly completes additional training courses.
Working as a massage therapist she often felt that there was more she could offer to keep people out of pain and address its causes. Knowing that movement re-education and corrective exercise was important she decided to train as a Pilates Instructor.
The APPI is a world leader in Pilates Teacher Training – providing a rehabilitation focused brand of Pilates which is appropriate for different levels of ability and experience. Since regularly practising and teaching Pilates, Alice no longer suffers with the migraines and chronic neck and shoulder pain she had had for years. Feeling slightly allergic to exercise in the past she has fallen in love with Pilates and feels like she has a new body!
Alice’s classes are mixed ability and use a variety of small equipment such as therabands and the Pilates magic circle.
Please contact Alice if you are interested in attending a class or would like to know more about Pilates. New starters are encouraged to have a 1 to 1 with Alice before joining the class.
