Chris (Ash) Ashworth - Pilates teacher
Having been a professional athlete, I understand the aches and pains that constant wear and tear can bring. This lead me to study Sports Massage hoping to help those who became injured knowing the mental impact that can have. Then I found Pilates and it has changed my life, allowing me to overcome bad knees, back and shoulders. Now I can run for the bus, go walking again and even dare I say it, dance again!
This transformation inspired me to study Contrology (Pilates) and gain my qualification so I can stop people appearing on my bench, prevention is better than cure right?
My passion has only grown to learn more about Pilates, stretching, breathing and sharing this with everyone as #everyoneshoulddopilates.
Oh, forgot to say I appreciate I'm very lucky to do what I do and cherish every session, I love my work. Hope to see you soon!
After becoming a Mum for the first time and not working, I decided to study part time in something that I was really interested in. I took an Access Diploma in Health Exercise & Nutrition in 1996-98, then a Human Biology A level in 1999, which led on to qualifying in Exercise to Music in 2000. Since then I have qualified to work with frail older adults in Falls Prevention in 2001, and then started my Pilates journey, qualifying in 2003.
I have since taken many workshops and courses with various Pilates training schools, each having a different perspective on the work. My original qualification with Modern Pilates was mainly taught by Physios, so I got a good grounding in many common conditions. I like to attend workshops regularly to keep up to date with my CPD.
Currently I am taking classes with Pilates Master Blossom Crawford via zoom from New York, who was herself a teaching assistant for 15 years to Kathy Grant, one of only two people ever to be certified to teach the work by Joseph Pilates himself.
Pilates is my favourite form of exercise (except for skiing but there's not much of it in Twickenham), the benefits of increased mobility, strength and improved alignment are good for everyone. I feel very fortunate to be doing a job I love.
I'm also still teaching weights based and cardio classes as it appears to be in my blood.
I have been at West Thames Physiotherapy since 2008 and it is a pleasure to work here, the Physios are always very helpful if I have any queries, and the reception staff are angels.
Luki was originally a personal trainer over 20 years ago. Realising what an important aspect of our physical body the core is he then trained in mat based Pilates and the obsession began!
Having done various courses such as stability ball training and foam roller workshops, the need for core based work to help lower back issues and other injuries became obvious. He added to his studies with Yoga and later more in depth training in hatha and vinyasa in India. Luki has now taken his interest in studying a step further and is completing a Sports Rehabilitation degree at St Marys University.
Luki is working on understanding the use of yoga and pilates as a tool for rehabilitation and will base his dissertation on this.
Life is a beautiful journey full of seeking and wander, be amazed with what the body and mind can achieve.
