A message to all our clients




We regret we have had to make the difficult decision to close The Old Stables Pilates Studio this Autumn and move our Pilates Sessions to our home studio. The last 18 months have put a huge strain on us and our business, meaning it is not viable for us to continue at The Old Stables location. 



We will continue to work from the Old Stables Studio until we close there, doing 1-2-1 Sessions ONLY, offering private Pilates sessions and massage treatments. We will no longer be teaching group Pilates classes at the studio. In the coming weeks we will move our 1-2-1 Sessions to our Home Studio where we have a custom-built space for 1-2-1 Pilates and Reformer Sessions.



Joining our Online Hub is a great way to watch and follow a wide selection of our pilates classes on your phone, tablet or laptop from your home, work or wherever you like! Subscription is £12.99 per month or £140 per year. You will have unlimited access to over 40+ Pilates video classes where Hannah and Gary guide you through the correct posture, positions and moves.


We will update you of other plans to move forward as soon as we can.

Thank you so much for all your support.

Pilates for you

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. 

Hannah Nicol

Hannah comes from a dance background having studied at Redroofs Theatre School in Berkshire and has both qualified and taught a variety of dance classes from ballet, salsa, jive and tap dancing to aerobics classes for many years. Qualifiying as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2000 and consequently becoming a Member of the Register of Exercise Professionals, Hannah has been teaching daily Pilates classes from beginners to advanced at Sussex Barn, Burnham Market since 2002.

She has recently qualified as a Pilates Reformer Teacher.

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.
