Your Instructors

Jacqui (Pilates)

Moving body was created by Jacqui in 2010. She was a massage therapist in the sports industry for ten years. She was constantly recommending cross training with a gentler form of exercise, i.e. Pilates, Yoga, and Tai Chi.

Jacqui discovered pilates in 1997 after a slipped disc; it was a life saver in managing her lower back pain. She went on to train with Body Control Pilates to increase her understanding of movement. Combined with her sports background the link between anatomy and movement is a great asset to moving her clients forward and seeing results and long term maintenance.

Jacqui believes re-education is the key to flexibility and suppleness. Not just making a movement but understanding how to move correctly therefore increasing your core strength and improving your posture.

Tracey (Pilates)

Tracey trained at the Rambert School of ballet and went on to join a French dance company traveling the Far East and Europe.

While working as a dancer she first came across Pilates with Alan Herdman, one of the original pioneers, and was immediately hooked, impressed by the deep understanding of movement that Pilates had to offer.

After a hamstring injury, Tracey was forced to reconsider how she was using her body, and Pilates was the answer in helping her to recover. This spurred her on to realise a long held ambition, training to become a Pilates teacher with Body Control Pilates, and she qualified early in 2013.

Tracey also teaches Reformer and Barre.

Sally (Tai Chi)

Sally trained in Tai Chi classes in 1998 after years of full contact Karate.

She attended twice a week at the Chi clinic under master Lee Fairweather who became English champion. Lee encouraged her to take an instructors course, which she passed in 2005 and has been teaching ever since.

She has trained in Beijing, Wudang mountains and Shaolin as well as here in England. Sally believes Tai chi is for everyone young and old, and has changed her life.

Simmy (Pilates)

Simmy was brought up in Turkey, moved to the UK at the age of 18. She studied Business Management in Essex, she then went on to work full time in central London in both retail and fashion.

Simmy then worked freelance for various Pilates institutes and developed her own classes in Brighton, expanding her teaching repertoire across all levels.
