Rebecca has been teaching at ‘Winchmore Hill Clinic of Osteopathy and Natural Health’ since September 2010. Rebecca qualified as a Pilates Matwork teacher with the Pilates Foundation©, completing her training with Allison Swan, a Pilates Foundation teacher /trainer provider. During her training she assisted Allison Swan at Dance works in central London and in October 2006 Rebecca qualified as a Pilates Matwork teacher.
Rebecca has been teaching group classes and one to one clients in the Winchmore Hill area since November 2006. Since the time of her qualifying, Rebecca had her 2 daughters and kept her Pilates Mat classes running throughout both pregnancies. Rebecca feels that having her daughters has given her a greater understanding of the human body and has found it has enriched her approach to teaching enabling her to tailor classes to individual’s needs.
In 2007 Rebecca qualified as a pre & post natal teacher and she continues to attend workshops and lectures developing a deeper awareness of the Pilates technique.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise method, designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems, the Pilates teacher creates a comprehensive exercise programme for the client. Classes will focus on specific areas individually whilst using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
“It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today. Pilates can be beneficial for just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.” (Extract from “Pilates foundation”)
“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit” Joseph Pilates
