A little bit about me,
My name is Isa-Welly and I’m an ex professional dancer who worked over ten years in London and around the world dancing with incredible artists such as Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Snoop Dog, Chaka Khan, Take That, Robbie Williams and many more.
Through my career my body needed support and that’s how I came across Pilates and totally fell in love with it. That was actually in 2007 and since then I haven’t looked back.
I am a movement lover and I am totally obsessed with strength, alignment and flexibility, qualities we will really be focusing on developing during this course.
I did my first class with Welly about two years ago and have kept her under my radar since then! It was finally a different kind of Pilates than most mainstream ones: very energetic, incredibly cool and smooth, never boring with the always changing exercises and fine tunes that keep you going. I found myself stronger and leaner very fast, though I always end up every class with burning abs and shaking legs! I’ve recommended the class to many friends and it never disappoints. Oh… Did I mention Welly’s body?! Ultimate goal.

A devotee of Welly’s classes, I adore her rhythm and musicality. Her online classes are uplifting and full of vibe, with *the* best tunes which is lucky because that keeps you in the zone when the pilates gets tough…and there’s no hiding when you get personal adjustments from Welly over video! I used to think pilates was tame but this most definitely is not and thanks to Welly I’m in the best shape I’ve been for years (even compared to my long distance running days) – strong and toned and with back gripes a thing of the past.

I adore Welly’s classes, I’m basically addicted. She paces them perfectly, takes the energy up precisely, plays the best music; she really understands the individual bodies and capacities of her students so is particularly good at pushing me a little further if she knows I’ve got it in me (even if I don’t), but also at getting me to dial it down, if I’m being ridiculous. I’ve walked into her class with some annoying lower back pain in the past, walked out feeling incredible and totally mobile. It’s like medicine.
She also has some of the best energy I’ve ever encountered. I never don’t enjoy her classes, I’ve never once had to make myself go; they feel like a treat. Through lockdown, her online sessions are keeping me sane, mobile and strong. Also, she’s a *major* contributor in my ab definition.
