About Us

Cockermouth Pilates Studio was opened in September 2008 by Ruth Noonan and her husband Dave as a base from which to provide quality tuition in the Pilates Method.  The Pilates Method was founded by Joseph Pilates in the 1920's and has developed since then as our knowledge of how the human body functions has grown.  Pilates exercises, when taught and practiced correctly can help to correct posture and restore function to enhance spine, pelvic and shoulder girdle stability and flexibility.  The courses taught at Cockermouth Pilates Studio are graded so that you can work at the level that is most appropriate for you.

Our teachers all hold the CYQ Level 3 Certificate in Teaching Mat based Pilates and maintain professional development by attending regular training courses and workshops.  We do our utmost to ensure that what we teach will benefit you to the best of our ability and knowledge.

The teachers at Cockermouth Pilates Studio are Ruth Noonan, Harriet Chappell, Helen Jackson and Miriam Leonard.  Helen Foy manages our paperwork and reception.  We teach group mat based Pilates courses, chair based Pilates courses and small group Reformer courses.  Personal tuition in the Pilates Method is also available in Matwork and on the Pilates Reformer.
