My Experience - Rosy Clark Pilates

After a serious back injury, it was Pilates that made me able to regain strength and learn how to control my muscles to prevent relapse...

In my late teens I was a student at Trinity Laban for Music and Dance training to become a contemporary dancer.  This is where I was introduced to Pilates, I attended weekly mat work Pilates classes which were invaluable. I was able focus on technique and gain a deeper understanding of how the body works. Pilates exercises helped to maintain strength and mobility needed to dance and would speed up recovery from injuries.  I loved this method of exercise and it became a daily routine along with stretching exercises I did to enhance my dance training.

After performing, choreographing and teaching dance for 10 years I had a serious back injury which left me unable to walk for months and in a lot of pain. Surgery followed in 2003 and quickly got back to practicing Pilates. I had to stop dancing and now I do Pilates most days. It is without doubt that I would not have recovered from my surgery as quickly as I did without the knowledge of certain exercises and understanding what to do and how to do it correctly.  I have an ongoing back problem which is controlled by Pilates. I am pain free most of the time, but more importantly I know what to do and how to help myself. This is why I teach Pilates, it has helped me and I can now pass my knowledge and expertise on to others and use my experience to help them.

Many years ago I moved to Leicestershire and I have been teaching Pilates in Leicester and the surrounding areas for over 5 years.
