Boutique Pilates was set up in 2012 by Victoria out of a desire to provide a welcoming, friendly environment to practice Pilates. " My passion for the Pilates Method inspired me to teach and share this unique method with others. Experiencing the many benefits physically and mentally for myself, I feel very fortunate to be able to give this back through my teaching. Please explore my website where you will see details of the classes I run that you can try for yourselves".
Trained in the Body Control Pilates method, widely recognised as the benchmark for the safe and effective teaching of the highest quality. It is Europe's largest professional Pilates association. Victoria is certified in Ante and Post-natal Pilates having taught many mums-to-be throughout their pregnancies and also after giving birth. Passionate about learning in more depth how Pilates can address specific concerns, Victoria has taken further courses in Bone Health and is a Licensed Buff Bones® instructor. Buff Bones® is a medically endorsed, full body exercise system for bone and joint health. Most recently, she has attended courses in Slings Myofascial Training and she likes to incorporate some of these elements into her teaching.
Pilates targets the deep postural muscles helping to strengthen your core, as well as improving posture and enabling you to move better and more freely. It promotes flexibility, improving range of motion in your joints and challenges and improves your balance. It is empowering to feel your body strengthen and lengthen through regular practice. Many pilates exercises are particularly beneficial for those recovering from injuries and it's also a wonderful complement to sports.
"Since starting Pilates classes with Victoria, it is hard for me to believe that a year ago I wasn't in any good physical state with multiple injuries and now I am healthy and have hardly any pain" RW
Barre incorporates the precision of Pilates with the conditioning, moves, grace and technique of ballet and the alignment of yoga. In my barre classes you can expert to stretch and sculpt your muscles, whilst burning fat. Balance, stretch, stamina, power and coordination all improve. Often the use of small props such as a ball, resistance bands and weights are incorporated into the workout. Victoria is a qualified BarreConcept® teacher.
'I look forward to Victoria's Barre class each week. Her way of teaching is calm and considered whilst working you very hard and her attention to technique and detail is excellent. the classes have made me stronger, fitter and make me feel positive about life and I love that the exercises differ each week. Victoria is a wonderful instructor and I highly recommend her classes." JB
