After years of ballet, Isabella took her first Pilates class at the age of 15 and loved it straight away! On moving to London she qualified as a Matwork and Reformer teacher with Body Control Pilates. Her key objective is to raise awareness about correct postural alignment and mobilisation through the joints as well as to strengthen the core and pelvic floor. She enjoys helping people find more flexibility and balance in their everyday life.

Noelle has been an exercise and dance fanatic for as long as she can remember. Seven years ago, she was introduced to Pilates and was blown away by how much it improved her ability to perform in all types of exercise.
