pilates | jane hannigan

Jane’s enthusiasm for Pilates stems from her background as a dancer, after many years spent challenging her body she felt it was time for some self care and after one Pilates class knew exactly how she could achieve this. Jane’s unique gift of ensuring clients bodies are ‘switched on’ and ‘activated’ lay the foundation for getting the most from their class. Building from the basic core movements Jane has an elegant style of encouraging exercise through Pilates to ensure that both body and mind are stronger.
