Hello - I'm Lorraine Hobbs
Pilates is my passion. It’s a privilege to teach and share in my clients individual and successful journeys to better health and wellbeing.
I began teaching Pilates in 2008 and I am an established advanced Level 4 instructor. I developed a keen interest in Pilates through my own personal practice and I could see the huge benefits that Pilates could have on injury prevention and the rehabilitation of sports injuries. I have always enjoyed taking part in a wide variety of sports and I am still a keen runner and cyclist. My career began by qualifying with a BEd (hons) degree in Physical Education and I taught in Secondary Schools for many years.
I provide specific exercise programmes for clients from beginners to advanced in my studio, on a one to one basis and in small group classes. The classes are held in and around Balsall Common, Berkswell and the Lapworth area of Warwickshire. As a long-standing member of REPS and now CIMPSA I am committed to maintaining the highest qualifications in the field of Pilates and offer classes that set with music, are enjoyable, fun, relaxing and relevant to client’s needs.
I specialise in working with clients with Low Back Pain and those who are recovering from spinal surgery. Gaining further qualifications in this area has enabled me to create close links with local Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Doctors, and other health professionals to provide rehabilitation and personal exercise programmes for their clients. I have also trained in Ante and Postnatal Pilates, Neuro Pilates, Pilates for Scoliosis, Shoulder Rehab and Large Studio Equipment.
