Hi, I'm Julian, a qualified Body Control Pilates® teacher and founder of the studio. I started mbody with a client centred approach to Pilates concentrating on getting it right for each individual. Over time this has expanded across a range of good things to help our clients consciously choose to live a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.

When I began Pilates to reduce chronic back pain, manage stress and improve flexibility it changed the way I approach a lot  of things in life. It's fast success spurred me to teach and study Pilates. I am a UK Level 3 Qualified and Europe Level 4 Certified Pilates Instructor, certified to teach mat, reformer, pregnancy and chronic back pain. I am a founding member of the Body Control Pilates Academy, Europe's largest Pilates training organisation.


Throughout my journey I began to understand most issues like back pain, stress and indigestion are preventable, and often happen because of aspects of our lifestyle. The studio has grown through providing you the information to help to reduce risks and targeted services to help manage issues. In doing so we work closely with primary health care providers and ensure all clients remain under their direction.

mBody symbolised the mind-body connection of Pilates created through regular practice resulting of effortless, flowing movement. This concept of practice becoming habit has been applied to help people work on issues like back pain and stress to make small achievable changes through movement, nutrition and targeted services. The goal is to help you embody the person you want to be.
