My name is Hannah and I created Beyond the Studio Pilates to share my passion for Pilates with others. I’ve been practicing Pilates for over 12 years and teaching as a Level 3 instructor for 3 years. I love being outdoors and I’m from a sporty family where both parents competed for team GB. I found Pilates after a kitesurfing injury left me in severe pain and unable to live my usual energetic lifestyle. I was diagnosed with having annular tears in my inter-vertebral discs. Pilates was my rehab back to my energetic lifestyle.
Pilates helped me restore my fitness as well as the strength and discipline to compete in my other passion, mountain bike racing. I also offer coaching to kids and adults through my other business Beyond the Mud and combine them both through retreats and events.
I love helping others to master Pilates techniques and reap the benefits it can bring to their daily lives. I work with small groups (when teaching face to face) as this allows me to offer hands on correction and ensure everyone is safe and getting the maximum benefit from their work out.
I am also a TRX trainer and pre and post-natal Pilates specialist. I offer specialist masterclasses for sports people. My Pilates masterclasses help to improve performance in sports such as running, cycling and golf.
I truly believe that Pilates can change anyone’s life. By understanding why our bodies do what they do and improving general fitness we can achieve your goals together
