Improving movement patterns and body awareness
I love working with a mixture of clients, especially those who are goal-specific. Whether it be with clients post injury or people who just generally want to move and feel better!
I have a passion for educating clients about their body and trying to work together to find out the why’s and how’s. Every client is different, and I believe working with the individual, tailoring my sessions to the specific client’s needs. I believe in helping people understand their bodies, encouraging functional movement within our sessions that will reflect in their everyday lives.
Hey, my name is Millie and I am one of the Clinical Pilates Instructors here at Vanbrugh Physio. I am originally from Chester but moved to London in 2013 to pursue a career in Musical Theatre and Dance. I trained at Millennium Performing Arts, graduating in 2016 and went on to work professionally as a performer and choreographer. It was in between performing jobs that I stumbled across the opportunity to work for a Pilates studio in London. Coincidentally, the studio turned out to be run by one of the leading Pilates training courses in the world.
Having thought I knew what Pilates was all about, back from my dance college days, I wasn’t overly interested. It wasn’t until I started participating in classes at the studio that I had a true “a-ha!” moment with Pilates. My relationship with movement changed, and for the first time I discovered what it was to truly understand my body and how it felt to move efficiently with ease and joy. I knew from then on, I would always include this practice as part of my lifestyle, no matter what other fitness phase I was going through, Pilates is the glue that holds it all together! I went on to do the full comprehensive equipment training course with Polestar in 2019, and since fully qualified, am working in an array of environments. I have also recently been asked to help the Polestar Teaching team, which involves me demonstrating and guiding students along their own journey to becoming an instructor.
