Lydia's passion for movement started from dancing at a young age and when introduced to Pilates in her teens she has never looked back! Lydia set up LYDIA.WELLNESS in 2016 with the intention to inspire and guide others through her own teaching style of classical and contemporary Pilates and Barre classes.
"I've always loved exercising my body as dancing was a huge part of my life growing up - so when I tried Pilates for the first time I was instantly hooked. Pilates is an amazing way to switch off from the outside world, be physically challenged from the inside-out and I love the positive energy I feel after class. When attending regular classes, I noticed my strength increasing, my joints more mobile and my core had never been stronger! I've also fell in love with Barre, a fusion of Pilates, Yoga and Ballet. Barre classes merge my passion for dance and Pilates and it's an amazing workout.
It's important for us all to take 'time out' as life can be so fast paced. Pilates allows for your 'me time' through applying mindfulness to movement and I believe everyone can benefit from this method of exercise. It not only brings effective results but also supports us in living life to the full, staying motivated and feeling great in our own skin.
I'd love to see you at a class soon!"
Lydia's mission is to fully understand each clients body and movement style so that she can help them find their own efficient, physical strength. Ultimately taking their bodies to where they never thought they could go and resulting in overall health, improved fitness and body confidence.
Originally called Contrology, Pilates is a method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. Pilates is a body conditioning form of exercise which will improve the way you utilise your body day to day. It aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing and to develop longer, leaner muscles. Regular pilates practise will help to improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.
Pilates is classed as a muscle-strengthening activity, which can help you maintain a healthy weight. There is also evidence to show pilates can provide pain relief to people with non-specific lower back pain.
Pilates isn’t specific to any body type and it has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes.
Lydia is an avid believer that Pilates can be practised by anyone, regardless of age, gender, or physical ability. With the proper instruction and ongoing dedication, anyone can reap the benefits of Pilates.
