A Fully Equipped Classical Pilates Studio based in Hertfordshire.
It’s the little things that await you …remembering your name and your injuries, eye contact, smiling, showing empathy and kindness, a touch, nurturing, encouraging, inspiring, feeling your energy and being prepared to adjust my plans for you accordingly, choosing my battles, and know when to let it go, express my integrity to The Method always.
“Change happens through movement and movement heals”
During a typical class you will be taken through all ranges of movement and, as you develop, you will be continually challenged with new exercises, new apparatus and new experiences. From private lessons to build your foundation, classes to ‘flow and go’ and small group studio sessions to work on specific goals. Classes held on-line and at the studio. I hope to inspire you to love Pilates as much as I do!
My community is warm, welcoming and always evolving to inspire the best in one another.
Whether you’re taking lessons with me in-studio or online, you’ll feel empowered and stand taller after every lesson. The studio is an open space for connecting mind and body, and meeting like-minded souls. Community is important to me.
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members” ~ Coretta Scott King.
“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit.”
Classes are limited to small groups ensuring that each student receives the proper attention to achieve a maximum workout. My aim is to take you safely through Joseph Pilate’s 34 exercises with integrity and precision. We often use small props – magic circle and weights.
Individual private lessons focus on each student’s particular needs. The student receives instant form correction and feedback, an ideal introduction to Pilates and working with resistance. Also appropriate for individuals with injuries or specific goals.
Once you have the foundations, you can join semi private group training classes on all of the studio equipment, including Reformer, tower unit, Cadillac, Wunda chair Pedi-pole and small Barrels. Either for rehabilitation or for a complete mind and body workout.
I have been attending both private lessons and classes with Jen for several years. Having Osteoporosis has meant adapting certain movements not recommended for me and Jen always ensures that the exercises are safe. She is professional, knowledgeable, encouraging and friendly and after each session I feel I have been physically challenged and always feel stronger. I cannot recommend Jen and her classes more highly and would encourage anyone who wants to improve posture, strength and mind body awareness to join a class.
I have been practising Pilates for 15 years and Jen is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She is incredibly experienced, knowledgable and passionate – and communicates her enthusiasm every lesson. Jen teaches predominately Classical Pilates but she always incorporates the best new thinking into her teaching, in a beautiful and peaceful space. The mat classes have made me stronger, more toned, fitter and flexible. I am now inspired more than ever as I’m also working on the apparatus, these workouts are developing a deeper understanding of Pilates. I feel stronger than ever.
