Aby studied and practised Pilates for three years in a fully equipped Pilates Studio alongside her Dance training, studying Anatomy and Physiology combined with an A-level in Biology gave Aby a strong base to becoming a Pilates teacher.

All Aby’s classes are mat-based, utilizing portable equipment such as Dyna bands, straps, trigger point balls and foam blocks (all provided).

Pilates offers a low-impact conditioning class, a fantastic addition to all exercise programmes and sporting disciplines, using simple effective movements, helping correct imbalances, improve posture, develop core stability, release stress, and prevent injuries.

Pilates is a form of exercise originally developed in the 1920’s by a German gentleman called Joseph Pilates who dedicated his entire life to strengthening the human mind and body.

He developed a system of exercises to be performed on a mat, and accompanied his methods with various pieces of apparatus which accelerated the process.

Pilates is practised world-wide and based on the original six principles concentration, control, centre, flow, precision, and breathing.
