Pilates and Supple Strength Total Body Training
One to one and small group training to transform your body and achieve your personal goals in the comfort of your own home. I teach in Stoke Newington, Central and North East London.
- 15 years Classical Ballet training.
- Certified Level 3 Pilates teacher.
- Certified Supple Strength teacher.
- Certified CPR trained and registered with REPs.
- Special interest in supporting the hypermobile body, Elhers-Danlos Syndrome and balance in the female body.
I teach both Pilates and Supple Strength with a strong influence from my classical ballet background, focusing on alignment, relaxation and developing mind body connection.
Supple Strength blends yoga, Pilates and body conditioning and is very similar to gentle yoga. Sessions fuse both Supple Strength and Pilates for a total body workout developing focus, improving muscle tone, core strength and relieving tight muscles.
I also teach Supple Strength only sessions working through a range of postures, dynamic stretches and focused movements. These sessions build strength, flexibility and balance centering on relaxation, ending with a light mindful meditation practice reducing stress and relaxing the body and mind.
I have experience working with a wide range of spinal conditions, injuries and chronic conditions and can help you learn how to support your body in a way that suits your individual needs.
Sessions are completely tailored to your body and your goals but will generally be a unique mix of Pilates and Supple Strength providing a full body workout personalised for you whether you want to rebuild and realign after injury, prepare for a ski/snow/surf holiday, improve your sporting or dance performance, stabilise hypermobile joints, condition and shape your body or to improve every day comfort and function.
Here are some examples of what we can work on:
- Tone and sculpt your body to elongate muscular structure of the legs and arms, build abdominal muscle tone, firm up and sculpt your back and butt to build the foundations for an elegant shape akin to a ballerina’s body.
- Improve posture, body confidence and back health while cultivating healthy alignment.
- Build a strong core to make everyday activities easier and improve sports performance.
- Injury avoidance and restoring balance.
- Develop mind body connection and build relaxation into your routine to feel rejuvenated and replenished.
- Develop muscular strength and flexibility to support healthy joints and increase freedom of movement.
- Reduce stress levels and tension held in the body and enhance balance and coordination.

Tim trained at the Modern Pilates studios in Mayfair and sees Pilates as more than just another form of exercise.
He views it as a whole different approach to movement, which promotes
- Good upper and lower body posture and alignment
- A stable upper and lower core
- Good breathing patterns, in turn promoting good health
- A strong, yet flexible spine
- Movement where there is no movement
- Stamina, and phenomenal muscle strength
- Natural, normal movement patterns
This leads to proper neuromuscular balance throughout the body, where the limbs can move freely, and smoothly around a stable core.
The body can now work more efficiently, and, with improved posture and breathing, function can be improved throughout. Tim provides a one to one programme and works with small groups in Stoke Newington and throughout London.
