Bodywise Pilates with Sally

Bodywise Pilates has been developed by Sally Nolan from a solid advanced level of training with STOTT Pilates and is firmly rooted in the original teachings of Joseph Pilates. The original Pilates exercises were devised from a mixture of bodybuilding, gymnastics, and yoga to produce an exercise regime which moved the body in the most natural, efficient, and pain-free way.

These original exercises form the base of Bodywise Pilates with the added benefit of some adaptations through the application of modern science and knowledge about the body. Sally’s classes are always varied, motivating, and most importantly safe. Sally caters for both men and women, mixed abilities, and any injuries or physical problems within the class by adapting exercises as required to suit your needs.


Tania and James teach a combination of Hatha, mindful Vinyasa, and Restorative yoga and meditation. All of their classes will combine core breath work with progressive intelligent sequences. With over 25 years combined experience, Tania and James will ensure that the yoga classes are tailored for your body and offer the right mix of stretching, strengthening, and relaxation. Tania will lead the meditation, mindfulness, and breathing classes which will help you de-stress, relax, and focus.
