Imogen's Teaching Experience & Qualifications

My career in the fitness industry began in 1997 teaching group exercise classes in leisure centres and health clubs.  I taught aerobics, body conditioning, step aerobics, pre/postnatal exercise, stability ball and aqua aerobics classes. 

My Pilates journey began in 2002 when I trained with Modern Pilates to teach Mat Work. I later went on to qualify with Body Control® to teach Mat Work (2006) and The Pilates Reformer (2010).  I am also a qualified Ballet Barre teacher.
