Here at Empower Pilates Essex, we focus on matwork based pilates using small apparatus such as balls, bands and weights to both aid and challenge you during class.

We believe that Pilates is for all ages and abilities without exception, to help promote strength, tone, flexibility, and assist functional movement to mention but a few of the benefits.

It is true that Pilates is widely recommended by Doctors and Therapists to patients suffering with back pain and current statistics state that up to 95% of the UK population has suffered from back pain at some point in their life. I am specifically qualified to work with clients suffering with lower back pain – Certificates available to view on request.

I have worked with many different bodies since teaching and it gives me great satisfaction when clients tell me they no longer feel the back pain they used to or they feel leaner and stronger since coming to class.

Our classes are small in number so you will receive lots of individual attention to ensure you are getting the most from your session and your body is moving as functionally and aligned as it can.


“An extra big thank you for your excellent Pilates classes.  You keep the class flowing, and your teaching and organisation are wonderful.  I have so enjoyed each class and you certainly “keep me on my toes.” Just what I need!”

“Just wanted to say how lovely it was to meet you this morning and how much I enjoyed the class.  What a lovely setting and really great to attend a small group”

You made it look so easy and I thought the explanations were great. It just made me more aware of my body and I could feel it all working.  I really did enjoy it!
