Hannah was first introduced to Pilates during her contemporary dance training. It has been an essential tool for her to maintain a healthy, injury-free body whilst in training and throughout her professional career.
She completed her Pilates Matwork teacher training with Brigid McCarthy, founder member of Pilates Foundation UK the Independent Pilates Teachers Association. Hannah has studied Remedial Pilates and has a interest in working with a variety of people and bodies.

IN PERSON PILATES
I am delighted to be running a monthly in person Pilates class at St Columba’s by the Castle,14 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2PW starting 12th August 2021.
Each class will have a different theme. Our first class on Thursday 12th August will be Back to Basics: Exploring the Fundamentals of Pilates. During the class we will look at some classic Pilates exercises in detail with a specific focus on breath and efficient movement.
The Monthly classes will have limited places so we can be socially distanced with procedures in place to make the classes as safe as possible. Full details will be sent out when you book your place. All are welcome, get in touch if you have any questions.
Hannah is also available to teach 1:1 sessions, as well as small group classes.
