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. She has been working with KICC active Lothian, a charity that offers classes to people living with long term and chronic health conditions since 2013. She has also taught seated Pilates at the MS Therapy Centre, as well as regular classes at The Healthy Life Centre, Out of the Blue, and Pre Natal Pilates for Bea Alexander Pilates.
Hannah’s classes are fun and rewarding with a focus on breath and efficient movement through dynamic alignment. We will work on strength, flexibility and balancing the musculature of the body whilst developing the connection between body and mind.
