A lifelong passion for movement led Emma to qualify as a mat pilates instructor with Body Control Pilates in 2015. She studied ballet until her late teens before heading off to university and embark on the “sensible” career as a lawyer. It was the high stress environment and constantly being at a desk that brought her full circle and 10 years ago she started a regular and dedicated pilates practice. She found that this helped profoundly with dealing with the pressures of work and the physical limitations of an office job. Her belief in the method was so strong that she left her job in the City to teach full time.
Emma believes in the multifaceted benefits of pilates. It helps to keep us strong and flexible but can also have a hugely positive effect in relaxing the mind and helping us to engage with our body and how we move.
Emma is also reformer qualified and continues her pilates education with both Body Control Pilates and Lisa Bradshaw.
