About Me

Hi, I am Jon, I graduated with a BSc in Physics and have worked as an Engineer ever since. I am married to a very supportive wife and have two lovely grown up children. My work interests have always mainly been technical.


I have also been keen on sports. My current interests are pleasure cycling, Olympic style weightlifting, White Water Kayaking and Canoe Polo. As well as general keep fit and obviously Pilates


I was introduced to Pilates when searching for a way to continue Kayaking after an old motorcycling injury was aggravating my shoulders causing pain and immobility. I was amazed and fascinated on how the body could be healed by paying attention to it. So much so that I became hooked firstly as a pupil for 5 years and then taking on Pilates teacher training. I studied anatomy in my spare time and finally graduated from Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Studio program in April 2018.


My view is that we are born with a complex and magnificent “soft” machine, our body, but we don’t come with an instruction manual. Fortunately Pilates and other movement practices such as Yoga, Feldenkrais, Franklin etc can help fill that void.


My passion now is helping people to get the best they can from their body, move without pain or become as athletic as they want.
