Hi. I'm Monoosh.

Hi my name is Monoosh and I’m a certified STOTT PILATES ® Instructor and a certified group mat specialist in STOTT PILATES ®.

I’ve always been very active and keen to participate in sport. During my teenage years I discovered my love for playing hockey. I represented my school and Country up to a senior level. 

I continued with my passion for sport and started a course coaching tennis. I soon realised I needed to improve my physical strength to progress my coaching. I decided to join a gym. That was my stepping stone to my next passion in life group exercise. A natural transition to a gym and group x instructor followed.

A career involving sport was inevitable. I’ve been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years. In 2002 I injured my back. After many physiotherapy and osteopathy appointments I started a Rehabilitation programme using Pilates techniques and exercises. This was the start of my Pilates journey.  It opened my eyes to the importance of the inner core (deep muscles).  Like most people I’d focused on the outer core (superficial surface muscle).  I decided to research Pilates philosophy and teaching qualifications.

STOTT PILATES ® provided the most comprehensive, modern training whilst remaining true to the original exercise method founded by Joseph Pilates. I’ve been training with STOTT PILATES ® since 2006. I undertake continued professional development attending workshops in London and Toronto. As a minimum I complete two assessed training modules per annum ensuring I’m always up to date with the latest techniques and refresh the basics.

I really enjoy working with people. It is very rewarding to see progress and improvement whether it’s for strength mobility or sleep!

It gives me great pleasure to see my clients week after week incorporating Pilates into their lifestyles and feeling the benefit.

STOTT PILATES ® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Lindsay and Moira Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, have spent over three decades refining the acclaimed STOTT PILATES ® method of exercise.

The refined method resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation - making it one of the safest and most effective methods available.

My Class Members Say....

  • Monoosh's Pilates class was recommended to me as I had back problems with sciatica. Thanks to her classes it’s made a huge difference to the pain I previously had.

    Caroline
  • Woke up this morning aching and too sore to get dressed - not helped by carrying a baby around for three days. After your session it was wonderful. Mobile and pain free afternoon. Thank you.

    Carolyn

  • I've been going to Monoosh's beginners pilates zoom class for 8 weeks. Every week I am feeling a difference in my form, technique and core strength.

    This is the first time I have attended a class in which the teacher shows a genuine interest in making a difference. In each session Monoosh pays close attention - commenting on my form, correcting my position where necessary and adjusting exercises for my strengths/weaknesses.

    I'm not sure how she does it but, a class of 4 feels like a 1-2-1 session.

    Through her passion and experience, Monoosh has the ability to identify where I have any muscle tightness or weaknesses. Knowing she is guiding me through each exercise gives me the confidence to stretch/reach a little more. Because of this, I feel I am progressing every week and have a greater awareness of my core and pelvic floor in everyday life.

    I can’t wait to see how I improve over the next block of lessons.

    Lorna

  • I used to suffer from regular bouts of back pain, however since becoming a weekly attendee at one of Monoosh's entertaining sessions she has provided expert instruction whereby I have been able to significantly "strengthen my core".

    Consequently, my improved overall strength and flexibility throughout my body has resulted in better support for my back - consigning the kind of discomfort I used to experience to history.

    I can't recommend Monoosh's classes, or the health benefits to be derived from them enough.

    Justin

  • A physiotherapist who was trying to treat my recurring back pain relating to an earlier injury recommended I try Pilates. My wife found Monoosh practising locally so I went along and signed up. I was immediately inspired by her understanding of the musculoskeletal system and, spurred on by her infectious cheerfulness, boundless enthusiasm and gorgeous Irish accent I am still attending her classes over a decade later. She has trained and maintained my core muscles to support my spine to cope with my active lifestyle, allowing me to enjoy regular mountain biking, golfing, skiing, sailing and kayaking adventures without pain or other treatment.

  • I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Monoosh's Pilates classes to anyone who would like to improve their core strength and flexibility. The class sizes are small so there is a friendly, family feel and, most importantly, you get 1-2-1 focussed attention from Monoosh to ensure you are moving correctly to get the maximum benefit. Monoosh undertakes regular training so the classes are always evolving to incorporate new exercises and techniques. It's a really enjoyable class.

    Alison
  • Monoosh is an excellent instructor who is passionate about the benefits of Stott Pilates. She is really clear in instructions and very encouraging with a bit of humour thrown in every now and again which makes the Zoom classes much more engaging.

    My core is definitely stronger and after the first 6 weeks, I started to really understand how to engage my deeper abdominal muscles which had been previously been neglected.

    Monoosh is a brilliant instructor and I would highly recommend her!

    Sandra
  • I always look forward to Zoom Pilates classes with Monoosh. Classes are fun and friendly. Monoosh always takes great care to check that we are doing the movements correctly and this gives me confidence in myself. I love doing Pilates with Monoosh and I feel healthier and happier when I am participating in her classes. The Friday morning class really sets me up for a happy weekend.

    Lorna
  • Just wanted to let you know I look forward to your Pilates classes every week & after 6 months I’m now beginning to notice a difference in my core strength & posture. Also some of the upper body movements we do are really assisting with the physio I’m doing for my rotator cuff issue & my shoulder / arm seem to be continually improving in mobility & strength.

    I think my whole body benefits from Pilates & I wish I’d taken it up years ago, I think everyone should do Pilates! Thank you & hopefully I’ll keep improving.

    Fiona

  • Since joining Monoosh's Pilates class my mobility has improved. Her awareness and guidance on body movement is so beneficial. An all round fitness and wellbeing class.

    Jo
