Ros is a Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor. She qualified as a physiotherapist in 1993 from the University of East London and completed her pilates training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute in London in 2010. Ros has been teaching mat work classes and providing individual sessions since then. Ros has attended courses on pilates for neurological conditions, ante and post natal pilates, pilates for osteoporosis, use of equipment such as bands, balls and magic circles, pilates for scoliosis, high intensity pilates and performance pilates for running and cycling. She has also done online courses on stretching and shoulder rehabilitation.
Ros also attends an annual pilates conference to keep up to date with the research in Pilates and introduce new exercises to her classes. With her experience in rehabilitation as a physiotherapis this allows her to use the pilates exercises to assess an indivduals movement patterns and help them to improve their movement, general strength, core strength, flexibility as well as posture and balance.
Ros holds classes for all mixed abilities with a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, shoulder and hip problems, as well as neurological conditions. She also holds a mother and babies class, a class for people with Parkinsons disease and is looking into run an after school class for teenagers.
We usually recommend that people have an individual session before joining a class so that Ros can assess their movment and teach them the basic principles of Pilates and then provide them with an exercise programme they can use at home as well as attending a regular class.To achieve the benefit of the exercises it is best to attend a weekly class where you will experience a different set of exercises each week to work your whole body.
