Published on: 08/04/17
The first fully equipped Pilates studio in Milton Keynes opened today 15 years ago.
Pat's story: She is the founder of PATS PILATES Studios.
Pat is a Level 3 Pilates instructor, Course Director of Pilates Advanced Training School, Low Back Pain Specialist, Pre and Post Natal instructor, a consultant for Falls Prevention, Exercises Referral consultant for GP's and medical practitioners,. A British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher through The Yoga Academy and also a registered E-RYT® 200hr with Yoga Alliance.
She has been teaching for over 25 years attaining many more qualifications. She is actively continues her studies in both Pilates, Yoga, Breath and Bodyworks attending many courses in her field.
At the age of 9, it was discovered that Pat had scoliosis (curvature of the spine). The Pilates exercise method was life changing for Pat, it helped her to realign her spine, improve posture, increase flexibility, strengthen her abdominals and back muscles. By practicing the Pilates method this has enabled her spine to be supportive in daily activities and has allowed her to embrace all life's adventures!
Pat is inspired and motivated by one of Joseph Pilates quotes - "Through the Pilates Method of body conditioning this unique trinity of balanced body, mind spirit can ever be attained. Self confidence follows."
Dream, believe, achieve - After many years working in the Milton Keynes community, happily sharing her knowledge with those who were either referred, recommended or those who had heard of Pilates and was in need of making positive changes in their bodies performance, it was time to put roots down in one location.
Pat thanks all those who supported and helped turn an empty dark space into a beautiful tranquil place for people to come and enjoy their Pilates sessions.
Each day she ask herself what, why and how?
- What am I going to do? Move well.
- Why do I want/need to do it? To enjoy all that life has to offer.
- How will I do it? The Pilates method.
Today her clients and students are asked the same 3 questions and their replies are:
- Pilates makes me feel great, move with more freedom 😀
I would like to thank my daughter Emma who is the manager of PATS PILATES, for her love, friendship, support and wit.
I would also like to thank all our past and existing clients for sharing their stories and spreading the word of what we do at PATS PILATES.
A huge thank you to the amazing PATS PILATES team. You are all ambassadors of the Joseph Pilates method. You continue to inspire, motivate and bring out the very best when working alongside each client. 😀
Thank you Rob for being by my side. ❤
