About me

I have been teaching Pilates since 2004, when I trained with the Pilates Foundation. My husband Mark (Qualified through Body Arts & Sciences International/BASI Pilates) became a Pilates teacher in 2015. We teach Pilates "mat classes" in Loughton, Buckhurst Hill, South Woodford, and Chigwell, as well as reformer shared lessons or 1-2-1's.

There are classes at all levels from Beginners to Advanced. There is a maximum of 8 - 12 students per class, to help ensure individual attention to students where helpful. Mats and Pilates equipment are provided.

For further information and a timetable of classes please contact me on cathy@cbpilates.co.uk, or 07981 239 650.
