Combining core strength and mobility.

Pilates

Pilates strengthens the body and improves general fitness and wellbeing with a balanced approach. 

Emphasis is placed on core strength, concentration, and breathing.  The quality, control, and flow of movement is at the heart of the practice.

Pilates is often used by elite athletes and dancers to complement training.  It develops whole body strength and flexibility and helps reduce the risk of injury.

Loliya Harrison

Pilates Instructor, Personal Trainer, Nutritional Therapist.

“I have a long-standing interest in health and fitness. My journey started in my teenage years when I ran for my county. I also developed a keen interest in how the body works and how nutrition supports health. I took a degree in Physiology and Nutrition and later became a Nutritional Therapist.  As I have developed and matured so has my approach to exercise. I am a Soft Tissue and Sports Massage Therapist, a Personal Trainer and Pilates teacher. Emphasis on technique, optimum nutrition, active recovery and adequate rest has helped me to feel healthier, stronger and more energetic. I can help you become a more effective and confident exerciser with an all-around approach to help the body move better.”

Real People. Real Results

“Loliya has a wealth of experience which she shares with her clients in a methodical way.  Loliya breaks down the nuts and bolts of each move and very helpfully points out what is to be gained from approaching each activity correctly. She clearly understands that a one size fits all approach to exercise is not sustainable for her clients. She listens, observes and adapts sessions accordingly. Before I started working with Loliya I had lost my way exercise-wise due to being fearful of aggravating a recurring back injury. Thanks to Loliya, I am stronger, more confident about what I can do and more flexible than I have been in years.  I now feel positive about improving my fitness level still further.”

“My sessions with Loliya were varied and had just the right level to push me that bit harder than I would push myself, without making me feel I couldn’t do it. Loliya takes the time to gently correct the exercises so that I got the maximum from each move. She is very precise and always encouraging.

Most importantly for me was that Loliya looked at me in a holistic way – not just giving me a set of exercises to do, but explaining why, thinking about my lifestyle, how I move, how I stand and the challenges I face when trying to be fit and well. I have no hesitation in recommending Loliya – she’s very skilled and also very good company
