Gill Harper Pilates
I am a qualified BASI Pilates® (Body Arts and Science International) Mat and Comprehensive Pilates teacher. I have been teaching in London for 10 years, in Spain and Portugal, and also online.
I started practicing Pilates 18 years ago as part of my fitness routine, and immediately felt the benefits. My core was stronger, my stomach flatter, I toned up all over and my posture was much improved. Having a desk-based job, Pilates became a crucial part of my routine to keep my lower back pain away and aid my recovery from later sports injuries and generally gave me a sense of good health and wellbeing.
My passion and enthusiasm for Pilates led me to following my dreams of becoming a Pilates teacher to bring these benefits to everyone.
Noone should find Pilates intimidating or inaccessible. I ensure that my classes are inclusive and effective by tailoring each exercise to a client's level and experience.
Modifications ensure that every part of the body is worked and strengthened in harmony with your capabilities.
My clients tell me I explain the exercises in a helpful way, and that I am warm, fun and approachable.
My goal is that you feel and see progress and enjoy your Pilates journey.

“I am looking forward to the sessions with Gill…she is very bubbly and friendly and I love being part of a small group were she can take into consideration the needs of each of us and give necessary attention to our form. Thanks Gill for keeping me going!"
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Gill for training me while I was pregnant and adapting the workout accordingly. While it was great to get some exercise in pregnancy, it also had a huge positive impact on my recovery, which was really swift."
“Love this Pilates class – nice small groups so you don’t get lost in the crowd. Gill is a great instructor and tailors the exercises to your abilities. She is also very friendly and approachable if you ever have any questions about the class.”
