Sandra started her journey three years ago when she began attending regular classes with Hannah. She quickly became aware of the healing effect pilates had on the mind, body and the strength it enabled her to gain both mentally and physically. Sandra’s interest has become a passion and she knows that pilates will always be a part of her daily life. Having been given the wonderful opportunity to teach at Riverside Studios Sandra is currently training towards a Level 3 Specialist Diploma in mat pilates including pre / post natal pilates, pilates for common orthopaedic conditions and small pilates equipment. She continues to be inspired with each lesson she attends and teaches. Sandra believes that pilates has something to offer to everyone whatever their age or fitness level, building strength, awareness of your body, confidence and calming the mind. She is thoroughly enjoying studying, teaching and being able to watch people learn how to take control of their body and mind. Her aim it to ensure people feel relaxed, confident and at ease in a comforting environment, hoping that they will feel empowered to find their own pilates passion as they start out on their own journey 🙂
Tracy was a professional dancer and singer and has attended dance and exercise classes since the age of 3, so exercise is a huge part of her life.
6 years ago when Riverside Studio first opened, Tracy, having problems with back and hamstring injuries, decided to give Pilates a go. It very quickly helped to sort her injuries and become a major part of her life, improving her core strength, flexibility and general well being.
12 months ago Hannah asked her if she’d be interested in becoming a Pilates instructor. She was flattered and honoured to be asked! Tracy has now qualified to teach beginners classes, her training is ongoing and she is aiming to complete the intermediate and advanced levels by the end of the year.
She is very excited to start teaching at these beautiful studios, come and join her, let Pilates into your life! You won’t regret it, she certainly hasn’t.
