A message to all our clients


UPDATE 01/05/21

Despite recent relaxations in Covid-19 rules we are still currently unable to restart Pilates matwork group classes. Due to the restrictions from our governing body/government, along with social distancing that we would have to put in place, we would be limited to teaching only 4 clients per class. To accommodate all our clients this would mean us trebling the number of classes that we were already teaching before lockdown and we know that this is not possible physically or financially.

However, we are able to conduct our 1-2-1 classes in safe and covid-secure conditions.

Please contact Hannah on 07788 134218 for more details.



Our new ONLINE HUB is now up and running, where we have uploaded our full catalogue of Pilates video classes for you to watch and follow along with. All you need to do is subscribe on a monthly or annual basis and then you will have access to 10 new video classes every month plus our full back catalogue of video classes.

Thank you so much for all your support so far, and we will do our very best to keep you all moving during this difficult time. Stay safe and healthy.

Pilates for you

Watercolour 2.jpg

Body Control Pilates is a body conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques. Targeting the deep postural muscles, Pilates works by building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. This improves posture, achieving a good balance between strength and flexibility, and is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension. Great for athletes looking to enhance perfomance but avoid risk of injury. 


Pilates is also perfect for the first time exerciser. Its slow, controlled approach means that it gives much longer-term results. Pilates teaches you to understand your body by unlearning bad postural habits that we unknowingly pick up over the years. It is especially recommended by medical specialists for those with chronic back pain, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, women's health probems and stress related illnesses.

Partners at the studio and in life, Hannah Nicol and Gary Newstead soon discovered that they were often treating the same clients and by combining their skills they would complement each other very well. Both will be based at the new studio and they are passionate about welcoming all ages and abilities to their range of classes, one-to-one sessions and treatments.

Gary Newstead

Growing up locally in South Creake and a keen sports person, it was a personal football injury that led to Gary's interest in sports injury treatment and rehabilitation. In 2003 he qualified with The Football Association in the Treatment and Management of Injuries in Football. This was followed by diplomas in Anatomy and Physiology, Holistic massage, and further training in deep tissue massage and Soft Tissue Release. In 2018 Gary qualified as a Body Control Pilates Matwork teacher and hopes to introduce more men to the benefits of Pilates.
