About Me 

My Pilates Journey...
Hi I'm Mo and I'm the  founder & Director of Pilates Cheshire. I have over  23 years experience in teaching Pilates Matwork and studio equipment overseas and in the UK. I've worked closely with physiotherapists, midwives, osteopaths and other fitness professionals to improve the standard and quality of my Pilates teaching.  Having studied Ballet, Tap and Modern with MTS school of Theatre Dance in Manchester, I followed a part time career in teaching Ballet, Dance Exercise to Music & Aerobic Kickboxing.  However, I was plagued with lower back pains and  knee issues due to overuse injuries, and this is when I took up Pilates!  I then moved to Athens where I continued to practise (with Body Control Pilates and Stott Pilates ) and then qualified with world renowned Stott Pilates. I opened my  own studio where I worked extensively with clients on a one to one basis as well as teaching small groups.  I furthered my Pilates practice by studying Pilates Studio equipment; the Reformer, Stability Chair, Cadillac and Barrels and I continues to train and study with a host of prominent Pilates schools such as Basi Pilates, Balanced Body, Body Control Pilates & APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) as you can never know enough!
Over the years I have  attended a variety of seminars run by Rael Isacowitz and Elizabeth Larkam, where I covered lectures on;-
  • Mat Sequences for clients with knee & hip replacements

  • Mat sequences for stability, mobility and balance,

  • Mat sequences with Rotator Discs to challenge the vestibular system and improve standing balance

  • Numerous Advanced Reformer training sessions.

      ​Other areas of studies I have completed are;-

  • Advanced Screening Techniques workshop with Biomechanics Education..

  • Myofascial Meridians which explores how the fascial webbing of the body contributes towards posture and movement functions, how pain in one area of the body can be linked to a “silent area”, some part removed from the problem.

​       I am also ;- 

  • A qualified Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist http://www.mbodiesacademy.com/instructors/?306

  • Pre & Post Natal Pilates Specialist in Matwork and Equipment 

  • A Freestyle Fitness Yoga & Level 3 Teaching Yoga Instructor 

  • A Meditation Teacher

  • A qualified Events Medic.

  • A Reiki Practitioner in the Mikao Usui's First &  Second Degree System of Natural Healing  

  • ​An Exam Invigilator with Group X Training.

  • A Certified Hypnotherapist and Past Life Therapist

​In my  spare time I  enjoy ballet classes and am an  amateur artist!  I dabble in watercolours and acrylics and attend a monthly oil painting class where I brush up on techniques and realise how much I still have to learn!I'm a avid reader and I'm  also very passionate about animal welfare especially our four legged friends having spent many years as a volunteer in a dog shelter in Athens. I continues to support individuals and organisations that work to improve the lives of abandoned, abused, neglected dogs and particularly the work to ban the dog meat trade in Asia.
