Rebecca Trowbridge – Founder
Rebecca is a therapeutic Pilates teacher who specialises in helping people rebuild trust in their bodies and themselves through movement. Clients appreciate her calm, insightful teaching style.
Pilates was the key to helping her find physical, mental and emotional strength in midlife – and it also inspired a new career.
Since then she’s helped hundreds of people to discover the transformative power of a regular movement practice.
In 2020 she created the (online) Daily Pilates Movement Challenge for Breast Cancer UK. Over three years more than 2500 people signed up to take part, raising close to £10,000 for breast cancer prevention.
She has a Comprehensive Teaching qualification from Balanced Body with additional training in lower back pain, joint replacement, diastasis recti recovery and fascia-focused movement.
Are you a Comprehensive or Reformer certified teacher who thrives on teaching highly personalised small group sessions?
I’m looking for teachers to take on evening and weekend sessions. On offer at the studio will be small group reformer classes and personalised mixed equipment duets.
Shifts will start at a minimum of two hours with potential to increase as the new studio grows.
If you’d like to find out more please do complete the enquiry form on this page and I’ll be in touch.
“I’m a 66 year old woman and have been doing 121 equipment pilates with Rebecca for a few years now. The benefits have been marked, in terms of body awareness, flexibility, mobility, posture, alignment, core strength. I could go on …!
Now, I can’t imagine my week without her class, and when I have to miss sessions, I feel the difference.
She really is an excellent teacher: meticulous, knowledgeable, caring, and fun to work with. You will quickly see and feel the benefits of her approach.”
“Rebecca had great skill in identifying my problems and the expertise and knowledge to gradually and effectively address these.
Her experience and care has helped me improve my range of movement, pain, stamina and core strength.
I am very grateful to her and without doubt have found her intervention to have been highly effective. Perhaps most importantly I have really enjoyed Pilates and can’t understand why I hadn’t done it sooner.”
“I love my Pilates sessions with Rebecca. I have been attending weekly 1-2-1 sessions and she has helped me rediscover movement in my back after years of struggle, aches and pains.
I honestly feel like she has helped give my body a new lease of life! She is such an encouraging, patient and calm teacher and explains clearly each exercise. Her knowledge and experience is an inspiration.
I am so glad that I took the decision to sign up – I can’t recommend Rebecca enough.”
“I had back issues for years that gave only gotten worse and at times I could barely walk. I am finally doing Pilates with Rebecca and it has actually changed my life as I am so much stronger and the back pain is gone.
It took me awhile to understand why the movements seemed so gentle but now I am becoming more agile and stronger and I am appreciating the sessions more.”
“My friend and I really look forward to our duet class each week. Rebecca is so welcoming, calming and kind.
She creates personalised programmes for each of us, according to our personal needs or goals.
Her sessions are creative and rewarding and we both feel stronger and more flexible as a result.
Neither of us had ever done pilates before and now we can’t really imagine life without it. Thank you so much Rebecca!”
