"Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit."
Pilates is a complete Mind and Body workout that restores good movement to your body. Every Pilates exercise requires you to be 100% focused on your body and to be aware of what is moving and how - the more aware you are of your body, the more you will get out of each session.
Pilates transforms the way your body moves, feels and looks. By using your own body weight, gravity and light resistance you strengthen your “core” - the deep intrinsic muscles that support and stabilise your joints. Pilates corrects imbalances in your body, elongating and strengthening your spine and muscles. A well balanced body that is strong and flexible is less likely to get injured.
Pilates helps you to live a better, healthier life by making you more aware of the way you move and retraining your body to move in a safer, more efficient way. By learning to breath more efficiently and releasing tension it reduces stress and brings a sense of calm into your life. Pilates is not a quick fix but once you start to feel the benefits, both physically and mentally, you’ll never look back.
"In 10 sessions ~ you will feel the difference, in 20 ~ you will see the difference, and in 30 ~ you will have a whole new body"
Welcome to MBL Pilates. I fell in love with Pilates almost 10 years ago when I was looking for a way to strengthen my body so that I could return to running after the birth of my two girls. I was hooked immediately, so much so, that I decided to embark on a complete career change and retrain with Body Control Pilates to become a Pilates teacher. I knew that a day with Pilates in was always a better day for me.
Having been teaching for the past six years I wanted to take the next step on my Pilates journey and open a boutique studio offering small group mat classes and private equipment sessions. From complete beginners up to intermediate levels, I want the studio to be a space where everyone can come and enjoy movement.
As the name MBL Pilates suggests Pilates has always been as much about the mental benefits for me as the physical. A Pilates session allows your mind to focus on just one thing – your body. Taking this time out each week is priceless; helping you to reduce stress and anxiety, and become physically stronger at the same time.
I look forward to seeing you in the studio very soon.

If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”
