About Ilkley Pilates

All classes at Ilkley Pilates are taught by me, Cherry.  I love Pilates and enjoy teaching it to people who are keen to improve their health and enjoy themselves at the same time.  Here is a bit more about me:

How did I discover Pilates?

On the recommendation of an NHS physio after suffering with a ‘bad back.’

How long have I been practising Pilates?

Since 2003.

Do I have any Pilates qualifications?

Yes, I have a CYQ Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Pilates.  I also have a first aid certificate and public liability insurance.  I have attended other courses in areas that interest me, like the importance of the feet!

Why I love Pilates

Because I no longer suffer a bad back; I’m stronger and more flexible; and Pilates makes me feel taller, (which is important when you’re only 5 foot 1 and a half!)

Favourite Pilates move and why

Shoulder Bridge because it feels great to move my spine with fluidity and flexibility whilst also giving my glutes a good workout.

Least favourite Pilates move and why

The Teaser because it’s hard – I need to practice more.

Favourite places

Swaledale and Filey (both in Yorkshire, of course.)

Favourite animal

Sloth – what could be better than moving slowly through trees in the sun?

Best job I’ve ever had

Teaching Pilates to lovely people.


For everyone to love Pilates as much as I do!
