About your tutor

Your leader Caroline is an experienced Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, has a background in Contemporary Dance and practices Yoga. She began running these exercise classes for mums in 2005, after the birth of her second child. She was looking for an appropriate class to regain her strength and flexibility and when she couldn’t find one, she decided to create her own. It has since evolved into a class for women of all ages and stages in life. Having worked in core control, functional and sports rehabilitation for patients with spinal and musculoskeletal issues, she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.

  • Course testimonials
    I have already recommended this course to a friend! Caroline, the instructor, is extremely knowledgeable and conducts the class with everyone's interests in mind. She makes sure everyone is doing the exercises correctly (which is really important in this type of exercise) so we get the most out of the class as possible.
