Your Instructor

Clare Jarvis

I have been practising Pilates for over 15 years, initially discovering it due to sciatica and long-term back pain I had been suffering with since a sporting accident in my early teens. I kept up the practice as it worked better than any other drugs or therapy at keeping the pain away.

I then decided to combine my skills at teaching English, with my love of Pilates and I knew I had found the right path for me. This experience led me to become a Teacher Trainer, instructing and examining would-be Pilates Instructors, and I love how I constantly learn from these students and keep my practice up to date through this role. I found the pre and post natal part of my training fascinating and went on to specialise in this area with further courses.

I love seeing Pilates make such an enormous difference to women at such a crucial time in their lives and having my own daughter in 2020 only served to confirm that this is my passion.

What Our Clients Have To Say

Angelina K

"I wanted to find a gentler form of exercise that was effective, but with classes specifically designed with pregnancy in mind. I learned a lot about breathing techniques and correct posture during pregnancy. These techniques proved invaluable during my pregnancy and I used them on a daily basis"

Susie K.

"I was pregnant with my second child and starting to feel the strain of the bump plus hoisting a toddler up and down on my body and in particular my back. I really enjoyed Clare’s teaching style and I could tell that the classes would be really helpful for me as my pregnancy progressed. Doing Clare’s classes before having my baby definitely strengthened my body and prepared it for labour. My body, especially my core and back, felt super strong during labour and I’m sure that the exercise had a real impact on how my labour progressed positively and helped my recovery afterwards"

Rachel C.

"I was very tired during the early stages of pregnancy and worried I wouldn't have the energy or the strength to do classes. I needn't have worried though as there are options depending on how you're feeling. I felt really energised after the first class and it was nice to feel my muscles wake-up. I hadn't exercised at all for the first 15/16 weeks of pregnancy and had been feeling sluggish. I actually felt like it was possible to do some toning during pregnancy when I finished the first class! I signed up because of the way I felt when I left the first class. It gave me hope that I might be able to maintain some sort of a figure by taking the classes"
