Anessa Madera
Principal Pilates Instructor & Myotherapist
"Anessa the Professor"


Having suffered from a back injury myself, I found practising pilates to be more beneficial than anything else that I tried. My approach to Pilates training and my teaching style is to take into account an individuals daily postures,body mechanics, pain and injury patterns in order to create a program that will enhance quality of life, freedom and functionality of movement and allow the person to achieve any of their personal fitness and health goals. I have earnt the nickname "Anessa the Professor" at the studio due to my technical approach to Pilates integrating my Myotherapy with my Pilates teaching.
I am a fully qualified Myotherapist and available for treatments at the studio.
