Angela Green- Comprehensive Pilates Teacher
Hi, I'm Angela, a dedicated student and teacher of the Traditional Pilates Method. I became a Pilates mat work instructor in 2006 to compliment my Fitness Professional training. Little did I know at the time, that a decade later, with a stiff and injured body through my sports, that I would delve deeper into the Pilates method and train to be a Comprehensive Pilates teacher in the Classical system of the Pilates Method in 2017. I trained over an intense 2.5-year period with Don Mcpherson at Classical Pilates UK in Scotland and completed my apprentice hours with Rebecca Leary at Pembrokeshire Pilates in Wales. These teachers are two of the very few UK teachers certified by the New York Pilates Studio- the first and most traditional training programme for Pilates teachers in the world written by Romana  Kryzanowska and Sean Gallagher- Sean is the current owner of the original Pilates business. It was important to me as a student to get as close as possible to the original source of the Pilates Method because I value the benefits associated with Authentic Pilates and simply doing things properly.
During the pandemic, I was able to connect with Sean and his business partner Elaine Ewing and take lessons, classes and workshops to further my development. This progressed into my attendance at the Pilates at the Pillow conference in Massachusetts, USA in the Spring of 2022, where I was able to practice the work of Joesph Pilates and visit his home studio property in Becket now owned by Sean Gallagher. I got to take workshops at Jacobs Pillow where Joseph Pilates taught his mat classes, and I undertook training in the original 34 in 34 Pilates Mat work where I earned my certification in the mat work this summer in 2022. I am the first teacher in the UK to be awarded this certification by the Pilates Source. I am furthering my career currently by undertaking the same training as my UK teacher's - the New York Pilates Studio Teacher Training Progamme as a bridging student (as I'm qualified in the UK). This will bring further quality dedicated Traditional Pilates to the heart of Wales.
