My name is Julian Askham, I am a fully qualified teacher of Pilates. I trained with Body Control Pilates which is a world renowned and a leading organisation in Pilates training.
I started taking classes in 2007 after my chiropractor recommended Pilates for lower back pain. My previous job as a landscape gardener had left me with a number of issues with my body. I found that regular Pilates sessions helped me to manage the back pain and taught me how best to avoid overloading my back and to improve my overall posture.
Having felt the benefits of Pilates on my body I am a firm believer in Pilates as an effective method of rehabilitation. It is also an excellent exercise for general fitness and well being.
As a result of my experience, I decided to train to teach Pilates in early 2014.
