We work interactively via video call to guide you through each session, offering feedback and corrections where necessary, gaining an understanding of how your body works and moves to ensure that your practise is effective and enjoyable.
Each 45 minute session provides a chance to connect with your body, taking time to reset and breathe before getting back to the everyday.
Joining a group class will also give you access to our private community facebook group where we post additional content and provide a space to keep in touch and get involved. Upon the launch of our on-demand library, all existing members will gain free access.

Small props & Equipment
Each month, we rotate through a range of equipment including band work, small balls, massage balls and wobble boards, aiming to keep challenging your body and helping to build strength and mobility.
We use our small balls to support our spines during touch core exercises, as well as intensifying strength building movements by reducing our balance.
For those with fused spines, using a small ball behind your lower back is a great way to support movements traditionally requiring forward flexion such as sit ups and Russian twists.
Soft, spikey massage balls are used to gently work our muscles, combined with a mix of dynamic stretching for a relaxing full body session.
These releasing movements are great for pain management and soothing tight areas under our feet, hips and shoulders.
Providing extra resistance to challenge your muscles, we use looped bands to intensify our movements, helping to grow strength and bone density as you work with a higher load.
This is a great week to get your muscles firing and feel the burn!
We love to challenge your balance to help train a stable core, your coordination and control. Balance is a key concept across all weeks and we take this to another level using wobble boards training.
We take this week as an opportunity to revisit matwork basics, ensuring you’re practising correct technique in key Pilates movements.
Stretching is key to maintaining flexible, strong and healthy muscles, whilst maintaining and improving our range of movement.
Whilst we complete stretches in all classes, we dedicate one week in our rotation to a full 45 minute stretch, giving you some headspace and a chance to really nurture your body.
Our clients feel the stretch.
I started doing Pilates last year with Emily. She is a fantastic teacher, always going the extra mile with clients and always making the classes varied and enjoyable.
I found Emily through Instagram and quickly signed up to her classes. I was only just one year post op when I signed up for her scoliosis classes, and very nervous about getting back into exercise. I definitely shouldn’t have been worried at all! Em is so kind and caring and genuinely is concerned about her clients. If I’ve had a niggle or concern she’s always been able to help quickly, making me feel so much more confident in my body! Thanks Em!
Well... what can I say about Em at Build Breathe Pilates? She is AMAZING!! I started classes during lockdown, I was super nervous and sceptical but after my trial class I knew I had found someone so unbelievably special! Em's classes are SO much fun and I always feel really in tune with my body. After having a spinal fusion 13 years ago and being so frustrated with exericse, I am happy to of finally found someone who truly understands. Since starting pilates with Em, I rarely get pain anymore and I am so much more confident with the way my back looks. The BEST thing about classes with Em, is my mental health. I used to be so anxious but now, I have seen a massive improvement and I couldn't be more grateful. I feel completely in tune with my body and my mind. I also do private one to one classes with Em once a week which i've found so so beneficial, I really like working one to one with Em! Thank you so soooo much I am so glad I found you xx
As a Pilates newbie, I didn’t really know what to expect. Em made me feel totally welcome and relaxed and every session has made me feel so much better. My normal exercise like running has already seen a huge benefit and can’t wait to continue my pilates journey. Ash, 45 year old man!
I just have to say thank you for another wonderful class! These sessions alongside your morning sessions on Instagram have really changed my lockdown and have made me feel much better about everything that's going on ? For as long as you are able to have classes online I will be there!
Such an incredible Pilates tutor and amazing human being – if you’re looking to keep (or become) active, flexible and strong while at home, definitely contact Em and give this a go – highly recommended!
Emily’s classes are fantastic so happy we still get to do Pilates on a Wednesday!
