Pilates is an effective way to improve overall body strength, flexibility, and posture. The controlled movements, that are effective in strengthening weaker areas, combined with the stretching of tight structures, can be helpful in managing a variety of joint or postural issues.


All of my mat-based classes follow Pilates 'core principles' which encourage precise, flowing, and controlled movements, performed from a stable center.

Exercises may be layered or adapted to meet individual requirements.

If you're looking to;

Improve your core strength and flexibility?

Relieve muscular and joint pain?

"Having spent the last 4 months in considerable back pain, resulting from a long-standing major back issue (Fractured spine and disc removals) I took the plunge to try Pilates.


I cannot express how grateful I am to have discovered the incredible benefits of your sessions. I appreciate many will be sceptical – they mustn’t be, after just 2 sessions with you and some home sessions repeating the exercises the difference is truly miraculous. 


For the first time in many many months, probably years I am all but pain-free. I also have a freedom of movement I haven’t known for much longer." Marc Wain - Newton Abbott - Powderham Class.

"I enjoy my one-to-one classes with Fiona. They are motivating and fun. Fiona is really good at tailoring the class to your personal needs and style, is patient and encouraging. Highly recommended, especially for those lacking in willpower!" Lynn Wethenhall, Exeter.



"Having done Pilates for years it was great to find someone who was able to focus the exercises to where they are needed most. My back has definitely got stronger and my Pilates technique has improved."

Darrel Bilverstone - Honiton - Weekly online 1 to 1 class (since April 21)  

 "Fiona's classes make such a difference to me,  I'm able to fit them into my working day and they're  a huge help with my back."  Sarah Rimmington - Exeter - Livestream Class
