Beginners Pilates
This is the Pilates foundation class – designed to take you step by step through the 6 principles behind the Pilates technique and to help you build familiarity with Pilates mat exercises. 

You will learn how to develop better posture by increasing core strength, improve balance and stability and increase mobility and flexibility – this is what Pilates is famous for! 

Perfect for those new to Pilates, we focus on teaching you the fundamentals that will allow you to move with more freedom, control and precision in your everyday life.
Improvers Pilates
Once familiarised with the Pilates method, the fundamental movements and you have built up your core strength you can then challenge yourself further. 

Improvers Pilates offers you more challenging movements. 

We combine the movements using small pieces of equipment to take you to the next level, including foam roller, balance pads, fitness circle, flex bands, toning balls and the small ball.  
Chair Exercise
This fun, chair-based exercise class is for those who would like to improve their health and well being but struggle to get on and off the floor.

The aim of the class is to improve your mobility, flexibility and core strength, as well as improving posture, reducing joint and back pain and enhancing balance, by using the ‘chair’ to do standing stability work.

You'll use small equipment such as small balls and flex bands, and Helen's famous hedgehogs will also make an occasional appearance.

Meet Helen's Team
Helen has built a team of friendly and highly experienced of industry professionals to ensure you have the best instruction and experience. 
After being inspired by a Pilates Institute Masterclass led by Michael King I studied the Pilates technique before obtaining my Level 2 qualification in 2003. I have been fortunate to teach it in local gyms, to colleagues at work and also abroad in Fitness First Gyms . I was interested to continue my training to further extend my knowledge. I realised the benefits and wanted to share my knowledge to help people, I did my Level 3 Training with Body Control Pilates in 2012 and I am currently working towards my MK Pilates diploma with Michael King. Pilates has become my passion. I love meeting people from all walks of life and seeing the benefits Pilates can bring to people .

With over 10 years experience in the fitness and dance industry, Stuart's began as a Dancer around the UK and Dance Captain for Bourne Leisure before moving into Fitness. He has worked his way up in his fitness career and is now the manager of Palms Health Club, alongside teaching Fitness and Dance classes. He says the best thing is combining them both...what better way to workout than having fun and doing something you love.

A rare breed in this day & age. Her energy is infectious, her heart is bigger than the universe & is just a total out & out beautiful soul.

She's become a legend on the fitness scene because wherever she goes you're guaranteed a great class & a great time... and when you hear her big hearty laughter it means
Helen's arrived.... which mean just one thing, get your party head-on & get the party started. 

But to me, she'll always be my soul sister from another mister who is in a circle of those who make my heart smile.

I have worked and played with Helen for many years. She was a student but I am now proud to say she's my friend.

I've often said if we could bottle her energy and enthusiasm we could make a million!

I have been attending Helen’s Pilates classes for 3 years now. There are no other Pilates teachers like her. I will explain why. During this time every part of my body has truly benefitted. I am more flexible, my neck and shoulders are much improved and I have a much better posture. 

Helen’s knowledge and expertise is outstanding. She frequently brings new exercises to class as she regularly develops her knowledge and learns new techniques by attending a very wide range of various training courses. Therefore, I experience an extensive range of different exercises which are effective, challenging and benefit all parts of my body. She easily adapts exercises to meet individual needs of everyone in her classes and her very clear instructions guide you effectively through each exercise. 

Helen makes Pilates fun and when on occasions I have felt low her classes lift you right back up and always leave you wanting more!! An absolutely fantastic Pilates teacher!! So lucky to have you, Helen.

I have been doing Pilates for 9 years with Helen; I started just before I got the devastating diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). It took 3 long years to diagnose and I have a rare form which is slower burning and means my muscles won’t waste. MND kills the nerves in the brain that tell the muscles what to do, it’s progressive with no cure and renders the person trapped in a failing body but the intelligence isn’t affected. I had heard of Pilates during this time and thought it might help me anyway. Helen has supported me throughout the 9 years and has seen me go from a mobile person with ‘normal’ too stiff muscles, losing my speech and seeing my hands and arms get less dextrose. She has adapted exercises so I can do them; she stretches my legs as my arms can’t hold the band any more. She now has to pick me up after floor exercises but nothing is too much trouble for Helen.

I think if I hadn’t done Pilates with Helen I would be a lot worse now, maybe in a wheelchair full time. Working on the core muscles has helped my balance and keep my muscles moving,
strong and looser than they would have been.

Why did I get involved with Pulseroll?

How I Broke My Neck: My Story
So 2016 was the year I hit 50! So me being me I decided to do something slightly off the cuff and crazy and decided to enter a ’dead lifting competition’!
Training was going well and I was improving every week until 2 weeks before the competition – March 3rd 2016 will haunt me forever……..

I was practicing my usual 100kg squat when I heard and felt my neck snap – the bar had rolled. Within minutes I knew I had to get to A and E as soon as possible as my neck was seizing up. I was rushed in, examined, x rayed and scanned – and then the news I dreaded – the doctor sat me down and told me that the weight of the bar had completely fractured my Spinous Process at C7…….. all I could think of was how was I going to teach my Pilates classes and would I be paralysed. I was also told that the break was so severe the bone would never fuse again.
Without going into all the minor details the next few months were very difficult, my main issue was lack of movement with my scapulae (shoulder blades) so my arm movements were limited, it was like being semi paralysed muscularly not neurally. however I soldiered on teaching and presenting.

November 2016 was to change my life….I was invited to present Pilates for FitCamps. I was driving to Blackpool when one of my true best friends Chico (yes the x factor favourite) called me, he was teaching there too and asked me to see him as soon as I arrived as he had something to show me…… the Pulseroll!

At this point I still had shoulder restrictions, he laid me down and placed the Pulseroll across my thoracic spine (upper back) as I laid on the roller I knew this was going to help me. It ended up changing my life.
As soon as I got back home I ordered my own Pulseroll and within 2 months of using the roller I was down to 1 physio a month instead of weekly and I had full range of movement through my shoulders.

My neck is still broken and will remain broken, the bone is held in place with fibrous connective tissue, however, using my Pulseroll regularly maintains my full range of movement by breaking down fascia, connective tissue, scar tissue and muscle tension in my thoracic spine, plus I am back to training at the gym 3 x a week!

Special thanks goes to my soul bro Chico and to Pulseroll director Paul McCabe without you guys and my Pulseroll….well who knows…..
I am super proud now to be part of the Pulseroll management team as their Master presenter which means I get to showcase, share my story and inspire others on all of the major Fitness and Pilates conventions UK wide travelling further afield in 2017 to Ibiza and Athens where i filmed my showcase for a live channel that reaches out to Mind Body enthusiasts in 28 countries worldwide.
