Robyn - Your instructor and my style
I love seeing people learn to understand their bodies again and discover how to get the best out of their pilates.
I teach in a variety of environments from small group clinical classes to large gym classes, as well as one to one sessions and I adapt to the different groups I work with.
I like to teach you to move with precision and control, ensuring you learn to execute the exercises as well as possible, getting the best from every movement. Once you have mastered good technique and built up your strength, I will progress your through to more challenging exercises.
I'm trained in clinical pilates and regularly update my knowledge of specialist conditions, which allows me to have a deeper understanding of joint, muscular and neurological issues. I incorporate this knowledge into my teaching.
Having completed my Level 3 Diploma in Modern Pilates in 2018, I started Macc Forest Pilates in Feb 2019. I chose to train with Modern Pilates as they are a highly respected and reputable training organisation, trusted within the industry. The Modern Pilates clinical approach has been devised and taught by physiotherapists.

Is Pilates for you?
Pilates is suitable for everyone and you will be able work at a level that suits you, whether
you're already very active and wanting to complement your regular workouts
you've not exercised for some time and want to focus on improving balance and flexibility
you're recovering from joint pain, surgery or cancer rehab
or dealing with an illness like MS, Parkinson's or a stroke.
I'll work with you to find a level of exercise that gets you moving with confidence and control. And you'll progress at a pace suited to you.
Many people are amazed at the difference pilates makes to your movement and your general well-being.
Pilates is not just for women, men are increasingly taking pilates classes as they experience the benefits.
If you are strong and active, Pilates will be able to provide a suitable level of challenge. Once you have mastered the basics, Pilates can be progressed to a challenging level.
Equally, if you are unable to get up and down off the floor easily, there are ways we can make this easier.
