About Studio Physique
Hi, I am Abby!
I founded Studio Physique in 2019 as a culmination of my experiences as a dancer and my training in Pilates and Barre.
I discovered Pilates during my ballet training at Central School of Ballet when a back injury threatened to end my dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer. After several weeks of enforced rest, my rehab programme comprised physiotherapy and regular Pilates classes. The aim of the programme was to build core strength to support my spine so that it could safely withstand the rigours of ballet training. It worked and I was able to graduate and fulfil my ambitions as a ballet dancer! Now qualified as a Pilates Instructor, I am happy to be able to pass on the benefits of Pilates to you, whatever you do for a living!
My introduction to Barre came more recently when, attracted by the idea of a fitness class derived from ballet and Pilates, I took a few classes. I quickly caught the bug, went on to qualify as an instructor and developed my own signature class, Barre Physique.
I now offer Barre Physique, Pilates and Ballet coaching under the umbrella of Studio Physique. Most of my classes take place in my studio in Beaconsfield but I also hold Community classes in surrounding areas. You will also often find me teaching classes in Sweaty Betty in Beaconsfield.
I have been lucky enough to have built up a varied professional career as a ballet dancer, choreographer and teacher and am now a qualified Barre and Pilates instructor. Not bad for someone with a dodgy back!
