Hi I’m Lydia, I am a fully certified Pilates instructor. My background is in professional dance where I'm trained in styles such as ballet, tap, jazz and many more. Dance has been part of my life since I was 6 years old and plays a huge part in the way I teach. From my years of training I take pride in technique and aim to teach all my students to move with control and precision whilst having a good time and connecting with their own body. I have practiced Pilates myself for 7 years and have a huge passion for it and I now teach classes all around Harrogate including; David LLoyd, O'Connor Chiropractic and Pure Physio Fitness Rooms. I am super excited to be a tutor here at Rossett and hope you all fall in love with Pilates practice as much as I have.
