Meet the talented team behind our classes & EP Sessions ….
Julia Potter – Mat Pilates Teacher
Julia is a Polestar certified Pilates Matwork instructor in constant awe of the transformative power of movement. Initially taking classes to alleviate general aches & pains, she found Pilates to be much more than a system of physical exercise; rather, an holistic approach to whole body health & wellbeing.
Julia teaches a style of Pilates that progresses small, isolated movements into full body integrative sequences. Emphasis is on technique & precise movement, with the ultimate aim of establishing efficient movement patterns which then carry over into everyday life. Classes are engaging & immersive, with changing choreography & options for modification, allowing you to work at your own level of challenge. Expect to feel taller, stronger, lighter & more confident in your own skin.
