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.

Pilates classes with Aby?

Aby offers classes to suit all levels for beginners to experienced, and understands the need of safe progression and modification to offer exercises for everyone.
Aby ensures each person in her class gradually builds a strong foundation enabling them to perform the exercises correctly and safely; through encouraging concentration & focus, use of breath, flowing sequences, resistance techniques and relaxation.
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.
