She first discovered Pilates 10 years ago after suffering from chronic tension headaches and a bad back, all due to weak abdominals and bad posture. After discovering that certain movements change the way the body performs by strengthening and stretching out at the same time, she decided to enter the Pilates world professionally. Georgie teaches the Classical Pilates Method which is the perfect balance of being dynamic and flowing, yet safe for all levels. She can always cater for all individual needs whether you need a bit more guidance for an injury or to step it up for more of a challenge. Georgie is a perfectionist and her classes are fun, yet focused to make sure each individual gets the most out of each session.
