Samantha Brown

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!
