To Pilates in Exeter with Fiona Swan

PILATES for Everyone

Welcome to my Pilates Classes in and around Exeter. To ensure that everyone gets the most out of my sessions, I offer separate classes at Powderham Castle & Alphington Community Theatre Room for beginner and intermediate levels, allowing you to start at a suitable level and make effective progress. 


I also offer online classes, held every Monday and Wednesday on Zoom at 8.45 am. This allows you to fit Pilates classes around your lifestyle and use any Pilates equipment you may have at home.


Alternatively, you may like to have a one-to-one session for a more personally focussed class.         


​Whatever your motivation for getting started I hope you will get in touch for a chat and you can join me for a class soon.  


Fiona's goal is to help individuals, through movement and lifestyle, to improve their quality of life. She is a Level 3 Pilates Instructor with specialist training in Pilates for Common Orthopaedic Conditions & Exercise for Lower Back Care.

Fiona is also fully insured and registered as a senior health practitioner with CIMSPA, the Charted Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity.


​Fiona has supported and encouraged many individuals to keep active for longer through group classes, one-to-one personal training, and other outdoor pursuits such as Nordic walking and as a Hill and Moorland Leader. Read more  


Alternatively, you may participate in a sport, such as golf or tennis, which requires a certain amount of functional mobility and strength. Pilates is widely used in the sports industry as a way of achieving results - so why not give it a try? 


If you have any questions please do give me a call. 

Kind regards

"Fiona is good at tailoring the class to your personal needs and style, she is patient and encouraging. Highly recommended, especially for those lacking in willpower!" Lynn Wethenhall, Exeter.
