Emma qualified as an instructor with Stott Pilates in 2005 and later spent five years working and training at a classical pilates studio in Reading. Her ongoing training has equipped her to work with people with specific needs (ante- and post-natal, those recovering from injury and people coping with chronic illness).
From 2015 to 2018 Emma taught the First Team and Under 21’s at Reading Football Club. This was a valuable experience where she was able to use Pilates for both injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Emma owns and runs Method Pilates where she teaches both mat and equipment classes. She continues to develop and enhance her knowledge through ongoing training and professional development.
Hannah is a qualified Level 3 Pilates instructor, specialising in matwork. She obtained her teaching qualification with the internationally recognised YMCA Awards Scheme.
