Welcome to the School of Classical Pilates

My name is Suzanne Hill and I specialise in teaching the original work of Joseph Pilates from my purpose built and fully equipped Pilates studio near Colchester.

I offer a full range of mat and apparatus-based classes for individuals or groups of all abilities. My studio provides a relaxed environment in which to participate in a comprehensive and professional programme of Pilates classes from beginners to advanced, as well as for rehabilitative purposes (post-partum or injury).

Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates as a holistic physical fitness system. There are around 500 exercises within the system’s classical repertoire, 34 of these performed on floor mats. The remainder of the exercises are experienced using apparatus including the “Reformer”, the “Cadillac”, the “Tower” and the “Chair”. My intensive training (completing 950 hours over two years) was accredited by the Pepilates studio in London. The Pepilates studio remains the sole studio in Europe to be licensed to train Pilates instructors by ‘the Pilates centre programme’ in Colorado, a programme founded and developed by direct protégés of Joseph Pilates himself. From my own experience of over 20 years of practicing classical Pilates I am certain everyone can benefit from the original method developed by Joseph Pilates.
