Hello, I’m Trudy

Hi, I’m Trudy, the Pilates teacher behind Pawprints, Pilates and a piece of Cake. I’ve been doing Pilates since 2004.

I got hooked early on and in 2018 decided to take the plunge and see if I would love teaching Pilates as much as I love doing it.

The answer was a resounding YES!

I started by training with internationally renowned studio, Body Control Pilates, at the beginning of 2018.

By mid-2019 I had racked up over 100 hours of supervised teaching, two multiple choice exams (anatomy and physiology) along with three practical assessments to gain my Level 3 Diploma in Instructing Pilates Matwork.

Now I run Pawprints, Pilates and a Piece of Cake with the help or, more often, hindrance of my wonderful dogs. My work combines three of my passions in life; dogs, Pilates and cake. Which of these is at the forefront will depend on the day of the week but every day is a cake day!

My motivation is to spread the joy of Pilates to fun loving people, just like you, while caring for and nurturing your body. I help you and your body work together so you can live the life you want.

Little known face: Pilates teachers can’t count (or maybe that’s just me?!)

One of the things that sets Body Control Pilates method teachers apart from others is the ongoing requirement to continually expand our knowledge. To see what post certification courses/qualifications I’ve undertaken to fulfil this fabulous requirement scroll down to the qualifications area below. .
