Welcome to Catford Pilates

Hi, I’m Rebecca — a Pilates teacher who specialises in helping people rebuild trust in their bodies and themselves through movement.

I know what it’s like to live with chronic pain and to feel like your body is failing you. And I also know how transformative a regular movement practice can be.

I’ve worked with beginners through to advanced students, including people with special conditions, back and joint problems, sports injuries, post-natal and post surgery.

I work in partnership with people towards greater awareness, compassion and body-mind connection so they can stand tall, move with ease and feel strong.

My Story

When I discovered Pilates I was at a very low point in my life — burnt out from a stressful office job and dealing with the grief of infertility.

Back pain had been a problem for so long that I couldn’t imagine a future where I would be able to be fit and active again.

It took time, but eventually my confidence in my body and myself began to return. I grew stronger physically, mentally and emotionally.

This profoundly healing experience inspired me to become a teacher.

What My Clients Say

“I started Pilates with Rebecca as an absolute beginner trying to fix back issues and strengthen my core to help with running.

She tailors the exercises to suit my goals and is attentive to how I’m finding each session, adapting on the fly to make sure I’m always comfortable and progressing.

A year later, my back’s now injury-free and my core is stronger than ever. Each week I leave feeling great both physically and mentally from such a calming environment and positive teacher. Can’t recommend enough.”
- Jonathan
“I had back issues for years that gave only gotten worse and at times I could barely walk. I am finally doing Pilates with Rebecca and it has actually changed my life as I am so much stronger and the back pain is gone.

It took me awhile to understand why the movements seemed so gentle but now I am becoming more agile and stronger and I am appreciating the sessions more.”
- Jason
“I do triathlon (swimming, cycling and running) and was prone to injury before Pilates. Since coming to Rebecca’s classes I’ve been injury-free. The sessions have improved my stability and strength which in turn has improved my performance.

The online membership is great - the live classes are supportive as you can see others, but the video replays are so useful as you can fit them around work and family.”
- Lois
I’ve been attending Rebecca’s matwork classes for nearly a year now - this is the longest period I’ve ever committed to a weekly exercise, so that should tell you something! I look forward to every class - I feel I’ve had a workout as well as time to reset my brain.

Rebecca brings a new variation each class so it’s never boring or predictable, and she really pays attention to the experience/confidence levels in class in order to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy it
- Sam
Rebecca is calm and empathetic. Rebecca had great skill in identifying my problems and the expertise and knowledge to gradually and effectively address these. Her experience and care has helped me improve my range of movement, pain, stamina and core strength.

I am very grateful to her and without doubt have found her intervention to have been highly effective. Perhaps most importantly I have really enjoyed Pilates and can’t understand why I hadn’t done it sooner.
- Joe

A friend recommended Rebecca’s Pilates sessions to me when I mentioned that my husband and I were looking for something to limit long-standing job-related postural issues.

Neither of us were sure what to expect but we haven’t looked back. Not only have the sessions helped the postural issues but now we both have improved core strength and feel generally better in ourselves.

We can’t praise Rebecca enough for her professional, calm and supportive approach.

– Janice and David
