Our People

Beth – Founder and Reformer Pilates Instructor

Here at Functional Pilates and Movement – we are truly that – a functional movement collective of amazing, highly qualified and experienced instructors of breath and movement. 

We know about each and every one of you when you come to class, whether you have tweaked your knee recently or are recovering from major surgery and rehab-ing.  Whether you are fine tuning your body ready for an ultra-marathon or Hyrox competition, or regaining strength and confidence after a hip replacement.   We are all here to offer movement in all its guises, and our classes, just like our teachers, compliment not contradict.  

You can choose to stick with one style of class or mix it up for maximum benefit.  It is not an either or here.  Neither is it an either or of pilates or yoga, matwork or reformer, 1:1 or group sessions. 

We are a collective of teachers approaching movement in all its beautiful and multi-faceted ways.

Enjoy.
