Angela Green- Comprehensive Pilates Teacher
 
 
Hi, I'm Angela, a dedicated student & teacher of the Traditional Authentic Pilates Method. I have a background in sports; playing football & mountain biking (the latter I still thoroughly enjoy) & a BSc Sport & Exercise Science Degree. I have 20 years experience teaching in the fitness, health & lifelong learning sector. I have been teaching Pilates comprehensively across the studio apparatus since 2017 having trained with Don Mcpherson at Classical Pilates UK in Scotland & completed my apprenticeship with Rebecca Leary at Pembrokeshire Pilates in Wales between 2017-2020.
During 2020, I was able to start working with 2 USA based teachers which have had a profound impact on my career that I am forever grateful for. Sean Gallagher- the owner of the original Pilates business & his business partner Elaine Ewing- archival Pilates expert. I attended The Pilates Source® Pilates at the Pillow conference in Massachusetts, USA in the Spring of 2022 & Autumn 2023- at Jacob's Pillow; where Joseph Pilates is documented teaching his mat classes in archival film footage. I was able to train in Joseph Pilates original 34 in 34 mat work sequence & notes- I am currently the only Pilates teacher in the UK to be awarded this certification by the Pilates Source®.
 
Because it was important to me to get as close as possible to the original source of the Authentic Pilates, I furthered my career between 2022 and 2024 as an already qualified UK teacher by undertaking the same training as my UK teacher's; The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Training Program- the first & most traditional comprehensive teacher training program in the world written by Romana Kryzanowska & Sean Gallagher delivered by both Sean & Elaine in Rhinebeck, New York.
My commutes to America have taken me to two very important places in Pilates history for workshops; Joseph Pilates original New York Pilates Studio space on 939 8th Avenue & Joseph Pilates home studio in Beckett, Massachusetts, USA (now owned by Sean). 
 
I am committed to offering quality & dedicated Authentic Pilates teaching in Wales.
