Victoria – Teacher 

Victoria has completed her level 3 Matwork Pilates teacher qualification with Body Control Pilates in 2019 and is excited to be able to pass on her knowledge of the method. 

Victoria has extensive knowledge of how the body should move having previously trained at Tiffany Theatre College in dance, and having danced for the majority of her life.  When she first found Pilates it was the perfect partner to her dancing and helped to increase her understanding of movement. She found it the perfect way to unwind but also keep her body strong and supple – much needed in the dance world. 

Her passion lies in understanding how the mind and body can connect to create elegant, controlled movement and with the Pilates method this is paramount.
