About Pilates

Pilates is a mind-body technique initially developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900's. The exercises stretch, strengthen and balance the body, targeting the deep postural muscles.

Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability from beginners to elite athletes. 


Carly Fricker

Physiotherapist trained in Pilates


I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2007 from the University of Southampton. I have worked in many clinical areas since qualifying, including treating people with a number of neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and Stroke. I also have experience working in falls prevention for older adults.


Before becoming a Physiotherapist I worked as a fitness instructor and as a rehab assistant in a Chiropractic clinic, designing exercise programmes based around the principles of Pilates for people with back pain. After suffering with low back pain myself I took up Pilates and found it invaluable in rebalancing my body and significantly reducing my back pain as well as being a fun and relaxing form of exercise.


I trained as a Pilates instructor with The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) in 2018. I chose to train with the APPI because I believe that the modified version of the traditional Pilates method that they teach is the safest and most effective way to perform Pilates. 

I look forward to sharing the method with you!
