ABOUT JULIE ROBERTS
My approach to pilates is all about helping you find and keep your natural balance both mentally and physically no matter who you are. We are all entitled to enjoy the benefits that movement can bring.
I fell in love with pilates when I started running and picked up a few injuries. My physio at the time recommended I use it to help improve my core stability and to also help stretch and lengthen my muscles, which were a bit imbalanced. Since then, I’ve had my own personal practise for over 15 years and in that time it has been a lifesaver for me, improving my strength, co-ordination and flexibility whilst keeping injury at bay. It has also helped me reduce anxiety naturally, making me feel my best from the inside out.
For the last year I have trained with internationally renowned, Body Control Pilates, in their beautiful Covent Garden studios and completed my TotalBarre training with STOTT PILATES, part of the Merrithew Mindful Movement family and am on the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs 3). Through a yoga alliance accredited programme called Class Yoga, I also qualified to teach yoga and mindfulness to children and deliver classes at East of Scotland’s Women’s Aid in Glasgow, where I am a volunteer.
With 1 in 4 of us in Scotland set to experience a mental health issue, I have recently completed my Scottish Mental Health First Aid Training in order to make sure I am nurturing, not just the physical fitness needs of clients in my class, but also their mental fitness needs too. I have also completed a foundational course in Pilates for Better Mental Health with Body Control Pilates.
If you are struggling with your Mental Health please know that you are loved and that help is always at hand. There is a Support Toolkit on this site to signpost where you can get help. Please use it.
Young people, trauma and neurodiverse conditions are just a few of the projects I am currently working on from a movement perspective. Please email for further information or visit the section on Youth & Community.
Feeling at home in your own skin - both physically and mentally - is so important to our happiness. Unfortunately the world is not an easy place to nagivate, but my classes will hopefully teach you how the mind and body talk to each other through movement and how you can use this to help keep yourself safe and healthy, in the hope that you too can find alignment and stability in your body and in life.
This is about your pilates journey and I cannot wait to share a method with you that has taught me so much about myself. Always expect a very warm welcome and a calm yet challenging class that keeps the vibe light and the core strong!
Thank you for visiting my site and see you in class soon, Julie
