About Georgie Kennington Pilates
The lovely Georgie a very dedicated instructor has been teaching Pilates for 6 years in the UK in and around London and also in France, having spent two Summers teaching in beautiful Cannes, Cote d’Azur and the French Alps. She first discovered Pilates 10 years ago after suffering from chronic tension headaches and a bad back, all due to weak abdominals and bad posture. After discovering that certain movements change the way the body performs by strengthening and stretching out at the same time, she decided to enter the Pilates world professionally. Georgie teaches the Classical Pilates Method which is the perfect balance of being dynamic and flowing, yet safe for all levels. She can always cater for all individual needs whether you need a bit more guidance for an injury or to step it up for more of a challenge. Georgie is a perfectionist and her classes are fun, yet focused to make sure each individual gets the most out of each session.
“I am hugely passionate about the health and wellbeing of each individual and really believe in Pilates for your physical and mental wellbeing. I like to think that my passion carries through in my teaching and I look forward to learning more and more over the years to come about Pilates itself but, also how each individual works better. I cater all my sessions to make sure that every individual person, whether they have just begun, have injuries or want a challenge is comfortable, but also being challenged within their abilities, needs and wants.”
Georgie, Pilates instructor
Spring is a wonderful time of year in the Alps, expect snow up top and warm sunny afternoons to enjoy bathing on the wonderful lodge decks.
