Pilates, pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), is a unique mind-body exercise system that develops body awareness and stretches, strengthens and streamlines the muscles to create a firm, toned, flexible and balanced body.

The pilates repertoire consists of more than 500 systematic, mind-body exercises that can be performed on a mat or on specialised apparatus.

From the inspiring Yorkshire Dales in the North of England, we provide effective and enjoyable matwork and apparatus tuition for everybody.

Our studio is home to pilates apparatus of the highest quality and includes four reformers, the cadillac, ladder barrel, spine corrector, arc barrel and stability chair alongside a full range of small props for mat classes.

Client Testimonials

Really enjoying having you in my house to guide me through my pilates. I’ve dibbed in and out over the hols but got into a routine over the last couple of weeks. I think there’s signs in the mirror its starting to make a difference! Just wanted to say its brilliant being able to do it like this when work/husband/children/time doesn’t help to go to a class. Thank you!

Just read your blog and you inspire me! I love it when you explain about the different muscles and shapes to achieve. I appreciate your love of the subject and how careful you are with your clients health and wellbeing. Fab class again today!

I began pilates with Jess about 2 years ago, not really thinking it would be for me. I haven’t missed a course since. Jess makes the sessions suitable for everyone, challenges you but ensures you are safe and work within your own limits. There’s a real focus on you as an individual and she makes it OK if you find something difficult with support and encouragment.

The classes are small which means everyone gets individual attention and can have exercises modified to suit their personal needs.
Jess makes sure she takes to find out what class members individual needs are and to help them on a one-to-one basis.
The studio is very well equipped with all the props needed to help with the exercises.

Jess makes the sessions fun and informative and will always find a way for you to do the exercises whether it’s an easier or harder option! Jess gets to know our individual bodies and encourages you through the sessions with her professional, knowledgeable, can do and fun attitude. I’d encourage anyone to give pilates a go, especially with Jess at the helm.

The classes are educational, entertaining and extremely worthwhile. Jess is an excellent teacher who constantly individualises the exercises to the point where I feel pampered and on a one to one basis. I have certainly benefited from pilates as I am now able to complete daily tasks without hesitation.

Thank you for sharing your inspiring ideas in your Pilates Philosophy blog. It made me smile and has encouraged me to aim high.
