Having tried several different Pilate classes over the years I was pleased to find one where I actually saw results. My back and core is much stronger and my overall tone and strength is much improved since attending the Pilates classes with Louie. In addition to core strength, Louie’s Pilates helped me to breathe correctly, improve blood circulation, focusing on proper alignment, integrating body & mind. No matter how tired I feel on the day I always feel energised by the end of the session. These are skills for life which are used to develop muscular power for daily activities (walk, play & work). I have been going to Louis’ classes for around a year and I will continue to go for as long as I can.
“Louie has been my Pilates teacher for about five years. He has a good eye for detail and is very good at spotting individual issues and tailoring exercises accordingly. He has taught me the importance of good technique when exercising and my posture, core and balance have really improved because of his classes. Most of all, his classes are fun – I would highly recommend them!”
I look forward to my Pilates class every week. Louie is great at tailoring exercises to suit me and any injuries I might have. His classes are always fun and he has an amazing knowledge to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their workout.
He moved to UK in the early 1980s and settled in Newcastle, where he joined Dance City and freelanced as a dancer. He then attended the Scottish Ballet School in Glasgow, and started contemporary dance. Louie received a scholarship to study Choreography and Contemporary dance in London at the Laban Centre, where he was introduced to Pilates.
Louie qualified to teach Pilates was given a teaching position at Laban, and soon became the tutor for the Pilates instructors’ certification course. Louie’s method of teaching is both in-depth and concise, presenting classical Pilates with modern adaptations and variations alongside certain principles from ballet a contemporary dance, which fuse together and enhance the Pilates experience.
