WELCOME BERNADETTE TO THE PATS PILATES TEAM 😀

PATS PILATES welcomes Bernadette to the team.
Bernadette looks forward to meeting and teaching you.
My interest in fitness and dance started early in life and lead me to become a qualified PE and Dance teacher. Whilst teaching in secondary schools I specialised in teaching dance and gymnastic. Joseph Pilates himself devised his repertoire of classical exercises whilst working with injured dancers, many people from varying disciplines and people from all walks of life.
Moving away from the fitness industry and having to experience a desk job was the reason I sought the help of Pilates. Working on computers and sitting for a long period each day can lead to lower back pain and poor posture. Pilates exercises I found quickly realigned my spine and improved my posture. I love teaching Pilates so I can help people achieve this too.
I understand how the principles of Pilates (breathing, centring, control, concentration, precision, and flowing movements, isolation and routine) can assist me and my clients in improving their form in their other sporting activities, hobbies and day to chores. Indeed, it is a powerful disciple in helping to prevent injury as well assisting with rehabilitation.
Pilates is a great way for people of ages and backgrounds to improve their fitness, spine health, plus lower their stress levels and improve mental well-being.
