Clare Kiose

I didn’t go looking for Pilates, it found me! The right opportunity came at the right time in my life, and what a difference it has made! I loved this challenging and hugely beneficial exercise method from the start. I’m a keen swimmer and found over time Pilates really helped with my technique, it’s also great for recovery after long sessions in the pool. On a personal level, Pilates has given me the tools to support my husband through his journey coping with Multiple sclerosis and the physical challenges it imposes.

Over the last few years of teaching, and further development of my skill set through various courses, I have learnt and embraced the power of movement and exercise, particularly the type of movement we teach in Pilates. Most profoundly, I have realised that it’s the exercises which may be perceived as ‘easy’ which have such a huge effect on people’s bodies and improving their movement patterns. It gives them the strength and confidence to move well every day. I want to challenge everyone at a level that is right for them, but for them to have fun, because let’s face it, exercise should be fun!

"Clare is an excellent Pilates instructor - so knowledgeable. Clare offers sound advice for any niggle or aches and pains and her solutions really work. The classes are brilliantly tailored for all abilities and the difference with Principle 6 is that Clare really takes time to get to know individuals who attend her classes and stretches you where you can be stretched whilst at the same time ensuring you stay within your limits. If you are looking for a Pilates instructor, don't go anywhere else!"

She is so dedicated to helping you as an individual with any specific problems you may have. She has great knowledge, is organised, encouraging and makes classes fun.

"Clare is an excellent Pilates Instructor; she is very knowledgeable about not only Pilates but also the body and how it works.
Clare is patient and explains all the moves and tailors her sessions to suit the needs of others. She gives different levels of each move so that people of all abilities can join in without being self-conscious.
Clare really takes time to get to know all that attend her classes and knows when to encourage you to do a little more and when to tell you to ease off.
If you are looking for a Pilates instructor, Clare is the one for you!"

"I have been having pilates classes with Clare for over a year now. I have really noticed a difference in my strength and posture and it has vastly improved my back and shoulder problems. Clare is great at adjusting classes to various abilities and making sure they are tailored to each individual. Highly recommended!"
