Pilates Reformer, equipment and mat instructor
Jon, graduated with a BSc in Physics in 1974 and has worked as an Engineer ever since. He retired from Engineering in 2018 and is now focusing on helping others through movement therapy. From his Physics background grew a desire to better understand bio-mechanics.
Jon was introduced to Pilates when searching for a way to continue Kayaking and Olympic Style Weightlifting after an old motorcycling injury was aggravating his shoulders causing continual pain and immobility. He was amazed and fascinated as to how the body could be healed by paying attention to it.
He started his Pilates teacher training in 2016 and graduated from Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Studio program in April 2018.Jon’s view is that we are born with a complex and magnificent “soft” machine, our body, but we don’t come with an instruction manual. Fortunately Pilates and other movement practices such as Yoga, Feldenkrais, Franklin etc can help fill that void.
His passion now is helping people to get the best they can from their body, move without pain or become as athletic as they want. This is accomplished by looking at the whole body and not just the injury or the pain.
Jon is available for 1-1’s and 1-2’s on Monday all day and Wednesday afternoons.
