Sophie Pascall

Always an enthusiastic athlete, I joined my local rugby team at a young age and developed my love for sport and fitness by becoming a Personal Trainer. My initial interest was in Strength and Conditioning, but over the years I have become more and more passionate about getting people moving through Pilates. Having worked in both a clinical and studio environment, my experience ranges between dynamic classes and working closely with 1-2-1 clients, to improve posture, strength and free range of movement.

I’m a great believer in the synchronicity of mind, body and soul and to improve upon one reaps benefits for the others. This translates in what I do, by understanding that bettering your body and physical wellness, will have a positive impact on your mind and emotions, resulting in a happier life. Through my experiences and with my knowledge and passion I help the people I work with to discover their motivators, connect with their body’s, achieve their physical goals and pave the way to a happier, healthier lifestyle.
