Joanna Reay

Principal Pilates Instructor and Bowen Therapist of Spirit of Pilates 

  • A certified Pilates Foundation Matwork & Apparatus Instructor
  • Pre & Post Natal Specialist Instructor
  • Pink Ribbon Post-Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist
  • A certified Bowtech Bowen Therapist

  • Attends various training workshops each year with International Instructors to maintain a high standard of teaching in both Pilates and Bowen which include working with upper and lower limb pathologies, spine injuries, Parkinson’s and more recently Hormone Release and Scar Tissue release. 

Joanna was first introduced to the benefits of Pilates through the positive experiences of friends, who had gained significant health benefits with Pilates. Originally taking up Pilates as a method to tone up her body, she discovered that not only did it change the shape of her body in a very short time, but it released all the tension that she had been storing for years in her shoulders, neck and lower back.  It was this experience, together with Joanna’s desire to find a career which involved helping others improve their health and overall well- being, which led to her enrolling on a two year intensive matwork and apparatus course with Pilates Foundation.

Joanna went on to gain a Post Graduate qualification in Pre and Post Natal, and then later became a Pink Ribbon Post-Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist and a Bowen Therapist.

Joanna is passionate about teaching Pilates, and is keen to further her knowledge in rehabilitation and other holistic therapies.  She hopes that Pilates will have a positive impact on the lives of everyone who comes to the studio, by helping them to increase their self-awareness; to develop a healthier, happier body; and to move with poise, strength, and vitality.

Trained by the Pilates Foundation, who set the precedence in providing the highest quality training standards in the UK, and which is the only organisation that is recognised by the NHS Trusts Association in the Directory of Health Service Providers.  The Pilates Foundation is dedicated to maintaining the integrity of the Pilates Method and providing the highest possible standards of training and teaching.  The foundation trains its teachers more thoroughly, and for longer than any other Pilates teacher training organisation.
