I began my career in the fitness industry as a fully qualified gym and aerobics instructor at a local authority health centre. It was while I was working there that I was asked if I was interested in enrolling on a Pilates based matwork training course with Michael King.
I completed the the course and began teaching Pilates classes there in 1999.
In 2006 I retrained with Body Control Pilates on a fully comprehensive Pilates matwork course covering both the contemporary and classical exercises.
I continued to teach classes at the local heath centre and larger health and fitness clubs including Esporta and David Lloyd.
I began teaching my own matwork classes at local halls in 2007 as 'Pilates with Pippa' and have built up a strong and committed group of participants.
I later completed my Classical Studio training in 2010.
