Whether your interest is just a hobby, or you are a fitness or health professional, we will nurture, support and teach you the skills you need to become a successful Clinical Contemporary Matwork Pilates Teacher. We are a Leeds based company with over 25 experiences and have been awarded the ‘Exceptional Achievement Award For Outstanding Contribution To The Health And Fitness Industry’.
The company was originally started by Award Winning founder and Director of Training, Christine North-Minchella, who also achieved Centre of Excellence status. Christine has been actively involved in the industry for over 48 years and has been instrumental in pioneering the development of health, fitness and Pilates training courses in the UK and abroad.
Our unique contemporary clinical approach to Pilates training was created in consultation with physiotherapist and author Christopher Norris MSc MCSP. Our method of Pilates looks at functional stability, postural alignment, core stability and modifications of the original works of Joseph Pilates. This combination of all approaches brings you the respected Modern ‘clinical’ Pilates training programme.

What is the difference between Classical and Contemporary Pilates?
- Classical Pilates follows as closely as possible to Joseph Pilates’ original work, his exercises and the order in which they were performed
- Contemporary Pilates is based partly on Joseph Pilates’ work but with modifications to the exercises so that they fit with modern research
- Modern Pilates is unique as it offers contemporary Pilates with a clinical approach as our exercises have been designed in conjunction with physiotherapists and recent research. Many of the exercises remain the same but allowances are made for injury rehabilitation and creativity by the teacher.
All our administration team and tutors will enthusiastically manage and support the whole training process from initial enquiry through to successful completion. Our enthusiasm is second to none and will inspire you to reach your full potential through our training programmes.
