Our People

Our new space enables us to bring together many different teachers and disciplines, under one roof.

To book a Functional Movement session, please do so directly with an instructor below.

With over 40 years combined experience in the world of health and fitness, Beth & Bonk combined forces in 2017.

After only 12 months in collaboration, their first goal was met and they opened the very first Reformer Studio in West Suffolk.

Now, after meeting all the challenges of 2020 and 2021, they are excited to enter a new era, as Functional Pilates & Movement and to launch their Movement & Wellbeing Centre. 

Pilates is their passion, and will always be at the core of what they do, but movement, in whatever form, is their skill set.

What Can We Tell You About Us?

One of us is younger, shorter and more contemporary, the other is older, taller and more traditional (regarding our Pilates of course!)

One of us is blonde & the other sometimes blonde, sometimes pink or purple or brunette!

One loves to challenge clients physically to build strength & the other loves to challenge clients to release and breathe to build strength.

Both of us always connect the mind and body to move as one and love to teach others to do the same.

When not at the studio you will find us outdoors whenever we can – often cycling or dog walking with friends, family or just the two of us.

Our Functional Movement Team

Our new space enables us to bring together many different teachers and disciplines, under one roof.

All our instructors have a desire to continue learning, a respect for other disciplines, and the shared goal of keeping clients moving using the tools at their disposal within their chosen discipline.
