This class is taught by:

Samantha Brown

Pilates Instructor
 
Sam is a fully qualified Stott Pilates matwork and reformer instructor. She studied at the YMCA in London, and is also qualified in Pre and Post-natal Pilates with Body Control. Sam is currently studying for her full certification with STOTT Pilates.

Sam believes that teaching clients to really understand the point of the exercises combined with increasing their awareness of how the body works delivers the best results. She is passionate about teaching and loves it when clients feel the benefits - particularly when clients claim to find muscles they never knew they had!

Sam strongly believes in the multifaceted benefits of pilates. She believes it keeps us strong and flexible but also has hugely positive effects relaxing the mind and helping us engage with our body and how we move. With focused pilates practice, Sam notes that you don’t just move better. You also breath better, sleep better, and live better!

In her ‘life before children’, Sam did a degree in French and Spanish and worked in Fashion before taking a break to have her two children and is more likely to be seen with an ice cream than a raw juice in her hand!
