Pilates & BARRE TEACHER
Olivia is a professional contemporary dancer and Stott Pilates Matwork instructor. During her dance training, Pilates was a way for her to stay physically in shape, mentally grounded and prevent injury.
Her approach is primarily in keeping the core strong so that the body can follow its natural alignment, connecting and energising the breath to every movement and opening up the whole body by strengthening, extending and stretching. A focus is kept on working everyone to their own ability, but challenging them to achieve small and large goals, be it from injury, to self-confidence.

"I have struggled with pain in my lower back and shoulders for many years and especially since having my two children. I started having 1:1 studio sessions with Nic in May and was amazed how much my movement improved, even after my first session. Nic is an amazing instructor, always encouraging and positive which has given me confidence in my own body strength and ability."
