Hello, I'm Mel

I’ve been practising Pilates for over 20 years and yoga for over 10 years. I teach both. I love how they positively transform you physically and mentally. I have a series of classes around Cambridgeshire. I run village hall classes in Caldecote. I am currently also running online classes. I also offer 1:1 and 1:2 sessions. Please contact me for details. 

I teach at Camyoga, gyms and studios in Cambridge, at The Form Practice in Hardwick and Postnatal Pilates and general Pilates at Yoga at the Barn, in Bourn. 

 I have studied Pilates with the Future Fit School of Pilates as well as undertaking many other related Pilates courses. I am qualified to teach ante and postnatal classes. My yoga qualification is 200 hours with Camyoga and I am currently working through my 500-hour training course with them. I am a Yoga Alliance Professionals UK member.

My Blog

My thoughts on life, from Pilates to the world and everything in between. Things that irritate me and also those which excite and fulfill me. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss anything about yoga or pilates or to gauge my thoughts on anything via my blog.

Why Yoga & Pilates?

Improve Movement & tone

Become more more body-aware, and reveal the unrealised ability of your own body.  Pilates and yoga can also work together to make you stronger and more flexible.

Recover from injury

Post operatively and after trauma, both practices can be therapy for the body and mind. The mindfulness aspect of yoga has worked for centuries and it’s power cannot be ignored. Infact, yoga originated with meditation and no physical practice. 

The remedial aspect of Pilates which has been proven to help so many with injuries, orthopedic conditions, back pain and postural issues. Many begin their Pilates journey through medical referral and continue so as to stay pain free.

Relieve stress & Tension

Take yourself into your inner awareness and away from the rigours of daily life. If you have never tried breathing practices or meditation, why not give it a go? Notice the power that the connection between mind and body can bring to you. Allow it to change your life for the better. It’s not just about the body.
