Living Pilates UK was born out of the mind of Liv Stanley, an ex-professional dancer, who came to pilates through dance training and fitness.
The foundations of the studio are based on natural earthy elements, organic physicality, and openness. The studio and the teaching should reflect each other to bring out the best of ourselves.
Whole Self Health
More than just fitness
An important philosophy for us is that Pilates isn't just about fixing a problem, but creating a practice that allows the person to connect with their body and mind - to understand how deeply they are connected and to tune into this daily. This is learnt through conscious and mindful movement - a dancer doesn't just know the dance, they learn and practice until they know it instinctively. Once the mind can move the body subconsciously, we are moving with ease and efficiency.
