Emily has been teaching Pilates for over 13 years in the Brighton and Hove area. She became passionate about Pilates during her Dance training, finding it beneficial in avoiding injuries and general physical problems dancers are prone to.
After completing her (BA Hons) Dance degree at Bretton Hall College, University of Leeds, Emily went on to train as a Pilates teacher in 2006 at The Place, London and is a fully qualified Pilates Foundation UK mat-work teacher.
The Pilates Foundation training is one of the most reputable and comprehensive teacher training courses in the world, qualifying her to teach a range of classes from beginners to dynamic advanced; 1:1, pregnancy and remedial/rehabilitation.
Until recently Emily has also been teaching A Level Dance for over 11 years at Brighton, Hove and Sussex Sixth Form College where she also completed her PGCE teacher training with the University of Brighton.
Her experience of teaching dance and interest in other body work such as yoga, gyro-tonics, Garuda and Alexander Technique have all influenced Emily's approach to teaching Pilates. Emily has a calm, friendly approach but always strives to challenge individuals to develop and progress with the Pilates method.

Private 1-1/hyper-mobility condition:
“Emily provides exactly the right balance of support and encouragement, with the will to challenge and extend your physical fitness. I can say that today I am in the best shape I have been in since my hyper-mobility diagnosis 8 years ago. I highly recommend Emily and her approach to Pilates, and have recommended her to my friends, family and even perfect strangers in the gym! It would not be exaggerating to say that without Emily and her weekly sessions I would not be able to live the life that I do, and complete the physical tasks required of me everyday- she has truly changed my quality of life and my physique in the process.” Catherine Lido, Lecturer, Hove
Improver Level with sacroiliac pain and sciatica:
“I have been learning Pilates with Emily for about 3 years and have found it has greatly improved my general suppleness and made me feel stronger and fitter. I started Pilates because I had recurrent problems with sacro- iliac pain and sciatica, both of which I now rarely experience. I also had stress incontinence, since having children. This too seems to have improved and is no longer a problem. I feel my posture and muscle tone have also improved. Pilates as taught by Emily consists of progressively more challenging exercises which are also gentle and relaxing, always tailored to ensure the safety of all her students, whatever their particular problems or needs. As one of the older people in her class, I appreciate this. I always feel as if I have worked quite hard at the end of a class, but I also feel less stressed and more relaxed. I would wholeheartedly recommend her as a Pilates teacher.” Ann Jones, Brighton
Back care Pilates:
“Your sympathetic approach to our individual back problems and attention to every little change in how we feel makes it a pleasure to come to the class and it has certainly kept my back from seizing up and improved my posture and general well being. The hour goes too quickly and sets me up for whatever the weekend may throw at me!”
Lesley Boyce, Hove
“I discovered the back care class, as a result of having treatment on my back at the Acupuncture Clinic; I suffer in my lower back, often going into spasm. The class has been a god send, helping me lead a normal life, easing the tightness felt in my hips, legs and back. The class is a space, where I can be with similar people like myself and learn from each other. More important is our teacher, Emily. She takes the class with such confidence and care. I feel safe and looked after by her. She has this amazing quality of being over the other side of the room, hearing someone make a slight discomfort noise, and she is there, working out an easier way to do the stretch. I recommend the class to anyone who wants to be able to manage their back problems, and feel in control of it.”
Alan Brown, Brighton & Hove
“Attending the Back Care Pilates group has been really beneficial for me. I have long term lower back and hip pain and without a doubt, it is practicing Pilates that has prevented this from getting any worse. As the groups are small, Emily is able to give fantastic individual advice regarding specific Pilates exercises for different clients problems. Emily is great at constantly reminded us of the individual specific muscles that need to be targeted to help improve our posture. The Back Care Pilates group has become an integral part of my daily life.” Anita O’Shea, Teacher, Brighton.
"After having played lots of different sport, but predominantly rugby, I came to Pilates relatively late in life and it has been a revelation for me. I have been attending Emily's classes for about 2 years and the improvement in my flexibility, core strength and overall well-being has been fantastic and has no doubt helped with my other sporting activities. Emily's classes are well structured and always take into account the different needs of those attending whilst being challenging and interesting. Above all they are fun and invigorating." Alan Mcarthy , Hove
