"Simple. Happy. Stronger"
As a trained ballet and contemporary dancer, I believe that skeletal alignment, posture, flexibility and core stability are crucial to our healthy well being and injury prevention. I can teach you how to train your body to move differently and efficiently by strengthening your deep stabilising muscles.
I offer private one to one tuition and open and private group classes in Pilates mat and private one to one sessions in Reformer Pilates. These can be in the comfort of your own home with me or online, in studios based in Marlow, Cookham or at the Powmak Studio in Windsor. In all settings I aim to make you relaxed, focused and enjoy exercise, feeling the benefits of quicker results and a tailored experience.
I have recently embarked on a new venture in nutrition, arising from my experience of the benefits of eating paleo; to be happy, live simply!
My product is artisan pure raw energy balls, Amazeballs; visit clairesamazeballs.com to find out more why not try a box!
Suitable for all levels (including beginners)
My classes focus on strengthening and engaging your deep core muscles in order to execute a range of different movement techniques. I aim to leave you feeling centred, lengthened and relaxed. There are face to face and online classes available.
Private Mat Pilates is also available for you and your family or a group of friends in your home.

"Claire has been teaching Pilates at Ovey's Farm in Cookham since 2013. WOW time flies when you are having fun!
Claire is extremely professional and knowledgeable in regards to all aspects of Pilates. Over the years there has been injuries and Claire’s personable approach and care means every individual is looked after and exercises adapted for each specific need. Claire is especially good with pre and post natal pregnancy pilates as she originally started just after we had all had babies- She has also had 3 babies herself whilst being our teacher, and her dedication to our group has never faltered. What an inspiration! Claire has become more than just our Pilates teacher and is now a good friend to all members of the group. Having now branched out into making homemade raw energy balls, which are absolutely delicious by the way, we feel very lucky to have such a fabulous teacher!"
"Coming to Claire’s classes for the first time two years ago I was apprehensive about what to expect. Would I be the only guy? Would I just lie on the floor and not achieve anything? I couldn’t have been more wrong. Claire is a brilliant teacher who tailors her exercises to the experience levels of her class. Not only has Pilates helped my back pain but I now think about my posture throughout the day. The classes are always fun and varied. She has a lovely rhythm and calming voice and always gets the best from her students! I always come out of her classes feeling relaxed and energised at the same time!!"
"I always look forward to my pilates hour with Claire! Working full time and being a busy mum, it’s my one slot of ‘me’ time. Not only does it give you the feel good factor you’re doing exercise and getting toned up, it also clears your mind and somehow makes you stronger, mentally and physically. Claire is such a pro. She adapts to your level and never makes you feel uncomfortable, she also happens to be very down to earth and genuinely lovely."
