Val’s Pilates journey began 15 years ago when a demanding corporate job in the City led to persistent back issues. Seeking relief, she discovered Pilates as a remedy for her back and an effective way to reduce stress.

After years of practice, Val decided to turn her passion into a profession. She trained with Polestar, the internationally renowned Pilate school. She gained her Mat qualification in 2021 and is on track to complete her Reformer qualification this year.

Val’s own experience has given her an insight into the transformative power of Pilates. She is passionate about sharing the Pilates’ goodness with others.

Originally from France, Val lives in London and has transformed her old office into a Pilates studio where she teaches.
