About Marina

Marina started practising Pilates in 2007 at the recommendation of her physio and immediately noticed the benefits. Her neck and shoulder pain, caused by many years working in an office, quickly disappeared and she felt stronger and more flexible. Marina was so impressed with the Pilates method that she decided to train to become a teacher, qualifying in 2013 with the renowned Body Control Pilates Association.  

Since qualifying Marina has continued to develop and expand her knowledge, attending regular courses and workshops.  She is qualified in designing programmes for Pre and Post Natal clients, and also those with Osteopenia and Osteoporosis. 

Marina is also a qualified Back4Good® Practitioner. This training is endorsed by BackCare, the UK charity for healthier backs; by leading medical practitioners and by the independent bodies who oversee quality and standards for the UK health and fitness industry. 

Marina’s classes will help you to move better, with more awareness, to improve your core strength and stability and feel stronger and more in control of your body. Marina's aim is to make you feel as good as you possibly can!
