About Me

Debbie West PilatesI am a fully qualified Pilates teacher of almost 10 years, trained by the PILATESfoundation by the renowned Pilates expert Suzanne Scott.

I set up The West Studio in 2005 in Barnstaple. During my career I have updated my knowledge by completing a specialised post graduate Pre & Post Natal Course. I have completed a Performance Matrix course and attended many workshops on varied subjects from scoliosis, hip pathologies to sequential spinal movement. More recently I have completed a Hannah Somatics course which I am developing further.

Pilates has been invaluable to me and has changed me both physically and mentally. I am more body aware, calmer, stronger, more confident and more in tune with my body, and am still learning new things about myself.

I enjoy applying the Pilates principles to other exercise classes that I attend, when running, when sat at my desk or in the swimming pool.

My teaching style has changed and developed over time, by trusting my intuition and years of experience I am able to give my clients the class they need.

I enjoy learning about movement and seeing the changes in my clients both physically and mentality.

I am listed with the Guild of Pregnancy & Postnatal Exercise Instructors - www.postnatalexercise.co.uk

Continual Professional Development

I regularly enhance my professional development by attending regular workshops and courses. This enables me to have up-to-date information on many aspects of Pilates and related exercise topics.
