|Tue 21 November||5:15pm||Advanced- Dynamic Reformer Pilates||Erica Foulds|
Erica’s love and appreciation for both general fitness and precise movement started early, with classical ballet training. This dual passion for technique-driven exercise and a good old-fashioned workout can also is reflected in her many qualifications – she combines a degree in human communication science with qualifications in personal training, fitness instruction and indoor cycling.
Erica is equally happy helping people recover from serious injury (she has previously worked as an exercise rehab therapist in a clinical stroke rehabilitation unit) and pushing people to achieve their fitness goals (spin and gruelling outdoor fitness sessions are particular favourites of hers.)
For the majority of Erica’s career, she has worked for some of London's top financial institutions as a corporate fitness wellbeing advisor and personal trainer integrating health and fitness into the lives of the chronically time-poor.
Erica has a strong belief in the age old ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ motto and her passion is about making it available for all.
When not at the studio you can find her on a bike (with the latest Ibiza mixes keeping her on the pace) or tapping her toes to the beat at a Dalston jazz cafe.

|Tue 21 November||2:00pm||Advanced- Dynamic Reformer Pilates||Zoe Cornwall|
A dancer from childhood, Zoe attended ballet school full time as a child before coming to London to train in contemporary dance at the Laban centre. After graduating, she combined performing as a dancer with working in the fitness industry, teaching group exercise classes and in the gym.
Zoe first discovered Pilates as part of her dance training, and continued to practice it for many years after graduation. When a car accident brought her dance performance career to a premature end, Pilates played a vital role in her recovery. Spurred on by the success of her own rehab, Zoe decided she wanted to help other people in a similar position and gained her Mat Pilates qualification. She has been teaching Mat, and latterly Dynamic Reformer, Pilates ever since.
Zoe is a big believer that in life and in exercise alike, with the right motivation and the right tools you can do whatever you set your mind to. To help her clients achieve their goals and ambitions, she draws from her own experience and continual training in a variety of fitness disciplines, from clients’ own experiences and journeys and, last but by no means least, from the principle that enjoyment is a fundamental part of successful learning – so expect her sense of humour to be very much to the fore.

|Tue 21 November||6:00pm||Advanced- Dynamic Reformer Pilates||Beverley Crighton|
Beverley is a latecomer to teaching Pilates having spent most of her career working in the design, branding and corporate communications industry as a client director and consultant.
Although she had been very active and involved in many sports from childhood, the demands of Beverley’s corporate career became more demanding, leaving less and less time for fitness activities and the inevitable poor posture and injuries set in.
She discovered Pilates as a way to counter these issues and practised for many years. The results, and the balance of physical challenge and mental focus that her sessions provided, kept her hooked and helped her regain the strength and stability to try other activities again.
Beverley believes passionately that Pilates is the foundation for good posture and improved form in everything from everyday functional movement to excelling in sports and physical activities, and can play a massive role in rehabilitation and recovery.
She completed her Mat Pilates teaching qualifications in 2016 and switched careers straight away.
Believing it is never too late to try something new in life and Beverley gets great enjoyment and reward from teaching Pilates to clients of all ages and stages. For many of her clients, Pilates can feel like multi-tasking at the beginning, with so many things to think about. But over time the application and effort starts to bring amazing results – reinforcing Beverley’s conviction that that anything of value takes time and patience to build well.
In her spare time Beverley is very active, attending spinning and cardio-based classes. She’s also very interested in the arts and when she’s not teaching Pilates, you’re likely to find her at a gallery, immersing herself in all things creative.
