Sally is keen to help you bridge the gap between using Pilates for rehabilitation and incorporating the skills into your everyday life.
Stott Pilates is often referred to as the 'ivy league' School of Pilates and prides itself on only graduating the best instructors.

Sallys background comes from Sports Massage, having worked in the field with a vast client base for 10 years, she also works as a Personal Trainer, therefore mixing principles and techniques of all three disciplines for her clients, for complete body management.

Clients will always feel welcomed and comfortable, in the sessions, and every effort will be made to keep the exercises varied and challenging.

More recently Sally has completed an advanced assessment course of the Pelvis and Spine, under the guidance of John Gibbons BSc (OST) at the University of Oxford Sports Complex. This has enabled her to have a more in depth understanding of the areas and identify specific dysfunction within the musculo-skeletal framework.

Sally understands the pressures and time constraints everyday life can bring. Let Sally help you fit your program around your life, so nothing becomes a chore and everything gets results.
