Nnenna Chidolue

I am passionate about healing with movement.  

My foundation is in Classical Pilates. I graduated from The Pilates Centre Program and I teach the whole Classical Pilates repertoire (Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Ped o Pull).

I find Pilates perfect for healing injury, rehabilitating and strengthening the body. Realigning your posture and strengthening weakness in the body to reduce pain and strain. Also giving bodies which may seem to have no need the added nutritious movement they require to improve wellbeing.

The main aim is to Return the Body to Life through Uniform Development of the body, Breathing and Mindful Movement.

From initial assessment I aim understand your body, needs, goals, requirement, strengths and challenges. This continues throughout journey as we aim to building their own stronger, more resilient body.  I say ‘their own’ as all bodies differ for various reasons.  The needs and functional requirements and goals differ.

Clients will find they gain an intimate relationship with their body and gain knowledge on how to improve daily, outside sessions whatever the fitness level or challenge
