I have thirty five years experience as a Chartered Physiotherapist and currently work as a Specialist  Physiotherapist in Musculo Skeletal Disorders.

Anne has successfully achieved full Matwork Certification  with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute in 2013 and is offering access to this wealth of experience through a series of pilates courses directed specifically at people who have episodes of neck, back or limb pain.

Anne has undertaken extensive further training including:

In 2016 Anne also attended the National Appi Conference

Anne has run Pilates by Physiotherapy for 10 years. It currently has 20 classes running each week with three experienced Chartered Physiotherapists.

I qualified in 1997 and have gained lots of experience working in the NHS and the private sector. Majority of my working time has been in musculoskeletal. I gained a Post-graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2020 and have completed all 3 stages of the APPI Matwork series.

I have been teaching pilates over the past year and really enjoy seeing the improvement that people make. I look forward to helping people on their pilates journey, and hopefully you will feel the many benefits of pilates that I have found.

 Rachel Smith

I have 15 years experience as a Physiotherapist working with musculoskeletal conditions.

 I have recently taken up the position of Specialist Physiotherapist in Musculo Skeletal Disorders.

In 2011 I completed my masters in Advanced Clinical Practice which focused on exercise therapy for treating back pain.

I have been doing Pilates for a number of years and personally noticed great benefits, particularly during and after pregnancies.


I completed my APPI training in 2015 and have really enjoyed teaching Pilates since then. 


It's great to see people enjoying something that has such positive physical benefits.
