about Pilates Guru

Hi, my name is Ashleigh, I am the owner of Pilates Guru; a brand based within County Durham.

Under the brand name I personally deliver group classes, private 1:1 training, workshops and retreats. I absolutely LOVE Pilates for many reasons, and in each session that I deliver, I really do try to articulate the benefits and advantages that the method can provide (if you continue your practice regularly).



Movement of the body has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I started training in dance from under the age of 3 and continued my technical development at De Montfort University (Leicester), where I studied Dance BA Hons.  It was within that timeframe when I started practicing Pilates myself.


In 2016 I decided to enhance my education relating to the body and began training as a Pilates Teacher, and it was honestly the best decision that I have ever made...
