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, exercise after joint replacement, diastasis recti recovery and fascia-focused movement.

Helen Vassar – Associate

Helen has been practicing Pilates since 2013 after suffering for years with chronic backpain. She knows the realities of working a stressful desk job and how hard it can be to fit in exercise around a busy schedule, especially when you are exhausted. 

However she firmly believes that regular movement is one of the most important things you can do to feel better.  She is now free from back pain through her regular Pilates practice

Following her own journey of discovery, Helen became passionate about Pilates, and in 2019, she trained with Polestar Pilates UK.  She is now a certified Comprehensive Pilates Practitioner.  

Helen teaches personalised equipment sessions on Wednesday evenings.
