'Learn Pilates to stabilise your core, improve stamina, coordination, balance, flexibility, enhance concentration, and use your breath to relax and unwind’

Pilates for physical and emotional wellbeing

Many of us come to Pilates because of pain. Most often this pain is caused by stress, anxiety, wear and tear or lack of movement.

Using the breath skilfully relaxes your body, reduces your blood pressure and increases feeling of calm. Dynamic stretching and knowing how to reach your perfect alignment, helps to grow muscles around your joints, this way reducing wear and tear.

Having a stable core is a great prevention against Lower Back Pain. Coordinated movements create a balanced body. If you are consistent with it, Pilates can help you become more resilient, strong and flexible in your body and mind.

I am also a qualified Mindfulness Meditation teacher (College of Mindfulness, UK) and Jack Kornfield (US).

  • Spine Corrector and Pilates Arc
  • Pilates for Breast Cancer, Pelvic Floor, Scoliosis, Older Person.

 

Like many people, I found Pilates through pain, when a physiotherapist suggested that I join a Pilates class to help me with lower back, hip, shoulder pain and post -natal depression following the birth of my third child in 2007. It did not take long for Pilates to transform my body and ease my mind. I wanted to find out more about this powerful system and then to be able to share my knowledge with others.

I now enjoy introducing people to the Pilates method: helping them gain relief from pain, recover from injuries, enabling those with long term health conditions live fuller, happier lives and helping everyone guard against wear and tear.

Kind Words

As a Chartered Physiotherapist myself, I am a harsh judge of Pilates teachers, but with Lina I have yet to find a flaw in her programmes, design of her classes (always varied each week), or her instruction technique. As a testament to her excellence I not only recommend my patients to her, but also attend her class for my own physical well-being

Suffering from fibromyalgia, I started Pilates with Lina 16 months ago. I have changed so much since then, all thanks to Lina and her kind and understanding way of teaching.
Joy
I have been going to Lina’s pilates classes for over a year now. I look forward to them every week. Lina is a great teacher who pays attention to everyones abilities and needs, making sure that the exercises are carried out correctly (she is very thorough). She is also a ray of sunshine, always making the class smile or giggle. I love her classes!!!

As with all exercise programs, you need to use common sense. If you are experiencing discomfort or pain do not continue with the exercises. If you have physical health issues you should check with your doctor or therapist before participating in any exercise program to avoid injury. Whilst every effort is made to keep sessions safe and effective, I will not be liable for any injury or harm sustained as a result of my online exercise videos. Read full disclaimer here.
