I am a movement teacher. I believe my value is in being able to provide movement experiences that enable my clients to become aware of their movement patterns, their strengths and their weaknesses, so that together we can address, improve and challenge their physical fitness.
To do this I use Pilates and Dynamic Neuromusculor Stabilization (DNS), alongside many other movement facilitating techniques that I have studied during my career. I teach using imagery and feedback to help my client connect their mind and body. My intention is that through our sessions they will realize their movement potential and that this will contribute to a more fulfilling and joyful experience of life.
"Bethia is the best ante-natal pilates teacher I have had in Cambridge (having tried 3 different ones!) as she was so well informed and clear at communicating as well as giving really caring individual attention."
"I am formerly a dancer, and myself taught Pilates for a number of years. I had 1:1s once a week for about five months after the birth of my daughter, having felt thoroughly alienated from my body by three years of academic study, pregnancy, and a difficult childbirth, I left her feeling once more at home in my body, back in touch with my centre."
"Bethia is the best instructor I have ever known. She has a wonderful and very rare gift for imparting a deeper understanding of the body and its movement both physically and intellectually. I cannot praise and recommend her classes highly enough!"
"Quite simply she's a great teacher and am I'm lucky to be one of her clients. She is 100% focused on her clients needs throughout the entire lesson; which is perfectly paced and full of variety.”
"Bethia's classes are wonderfully calming and supportive. I learnt so much about what my body was doing during pregnancy, it really helped me to relax and enjoy the whole experience. I can't recommend Bethia enough."
"Bethia’s style and her attention to the detail of every movement are a revelation. She knows exactly what result she is hoping to achieve and, vitally, exactly what woman in her early seventies, with arthritis and an artificial hip can and should be doing. She has given me a real foundation for maintaining flexibility particularly through arthritis and injury."
