Welcome to Jill Cooper’s Pilates in the Lakes, which offers Pilates classes at The Parish Centre to those who live in the area and also private lessons at my studio in Ambleside during the day and evening, enabling you to fit a session in around your weekly routine.

Classes are taught by Jill Cooper who trained with Body Control Pilates® as a Mat Instructor, Pilates Union as a  Reformer Instructor and a Remedial Sports Therapist which gave me vital knowledge of  body ‘engineering’

I teach small classes and regularly attend courses which means that there’s always a new challenge for those that want it. Regularly learning, having a private lesson myself  means my own skills are updated which is vital to my clients. 

There is a wide range of people attending classes and private sessions – an age range of 25- 85 men, women, builders, artists, musicians, runners, climbers, teachers, nurses, relaxed retirees…..fit, not so fit, post operative, pregnant, tall, short, slim, rotund; so as you can see Pilates suits most of us. Classes are run in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with no competitive edge to them. Individuals are taught how to challenge themselves via the exercises. My aim is to make Pilates accessible to a wide range of people so more people can experience the positive effects I believe it has.
