Anna brings a life long passion, study and practice of dance and other movement styles to her pilates teaching, qualifying first in matwork and later on the studio machines.
She discovered the beauty, strengthening and therapeutic benefits of pilates well over twenty years ago following a foot injury and eventually decided to train as a teacher, studying in mat-work with Helge Fisher and Stephanie Beeson of The New Pilates School, then the studio machines with Gordon Thompson and Ellie Ioannidou at the Pilates Body Europe studio in South Kensington.
She enjoys her continuing professional development and learning with a wide range of master pilates, anatomy and bodywork specialists. Her ‘fusion’ approach to teaching reflects a constant curiosity and widening sphere of influences and context.
As well as at The Tree of Life Centre and HD Pilates Studio, Anna teaches classes and private sessions in Lewes and at Glyndebourne Opera House in the name of her own practice, Pilates Contigo.
She is experienced in working with people with a wide range of issues and conditions, and enjoys making pilates fit the person, at their own level and across the ages. Most of all, she enjoys learning from those she has taught.
