About Us

At the Pilates WareHouse our highly motivated teachers are passionate about Pilates and the many benefits it can bring. Our teaching style encourages the development of kinesthetic awareness during Pilates practise to help you to achieve an ease of movement and an efficiency when using the body.   We want to bring you all the benefits of smaller classes, with high quality teaching and close supervision.   We will explore movement patterns and strategies, individual to you, so that the gains you make within the sessions will also continue when you leave us and return to your usual activities. We also work closely with local Physiotherapy and Osteopathy services to ensure our clients are well supported.

Fay Roberts

Fay’s background is in social work with children and families.  Fay was a working mum with two young children and her work was both sedentary and stressful.  She suffered with recurrent low back pain for a few years.   After another bad flare-up, Fay was recommended that she try Pilates by her osteopath.  Her life changed when she discovered reformer Pilates in 2006.  From her very first class, she found that Pilates helped enormously with her pain and was also an excellent stress reliever.  In 2015 Fay decided to transform her life by changing her passion into her career and she began training to be a Pilates teacher with Polestar Pilates.  Fay loves sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm about all things health and wellness and strongly believes that the practice of Pilates can transform anybody’s body, mind and life, as it has her own.
