Neil Richardson

Neil served in the Royal Air Force as a pilot for sixteen years, flying various aircraft on assorted operational duties. After leaving the RAF he was a commercial airline pilot for five years.

Kirsty Rose

Kirsty is a certified Stott Pilates Matwork Instructor, Balanced Body Reformer Instructor, and Barre Fitness Instructor. She is also trained in Injuries & Special Populations, and Pre/Post Natal. She has recently certified in her 200hr RYT Vinyasa Yoga in Bali with Yoga Alliance.

Kirsty had taken Pilates classes as part of her professional dance training since 2004. After 10 years of dancing, she needed to rehabilitate her body after the pressures of dancing, and she decided to retrain to teach Pilates and bring its benefits to others.

She qualified as a Pilates instructor in 2015, and began teaching in Bristol in gyms and private studios, before being headhunted by Nuffield Health to work in their corporate gym studio, and offer classes in offices and businesses throughout the UK. She married and moved to Dubai, where she taught Mat and Reformer Pilates for several boutique studios, both group and private classes. She loved the variety of clients she worked with, from athletes looking to improve performance and avoid injury, to people needing to rehab, or pre or post surgery.

Kirsty is a great fit for our team, with excellent Stott Pilates/Balanced Body qualifications, her focus on precision of technique, and a caring approach to her clients yet giving you a dynamic and full workout.

Helen Dean

I was first introduced to Pilates by a ballet teacher I had at college when I was completing my degree in Dance Studies, but did not fully appreciate its potential to enhance people’s lives until it was suggested by my physiotherapist I took it back up again to manage an injury I received following a car accident.  I was amazed at how Pilates changed my life; enabling me to stay pain free and active.  Following completing my dance training I worked in education for 20 years but have returned to working with movement and love sharing my knowledge with others and seeing the benefits it brings them.  When I’m not working I enjoy walking, spending time in my garden and practicing mindfulness.

Charlotte Harvey-Parsons


Having always had a keen interest in fitness i began looking for more creative ways to keep active, i took up Pole Fitness and qualified as an Instructor in 2017. I fell in love with teaching and helping others to progress both physically and mentally, this encouraged me to further my knowledge of the mind to body connection. Yoga has helped me in more ways than i could have imagined and i’d like to share that. 200hr YTT yoga alliance certified

Salacia Baldwin


‘Find your inner glow through movement and flow!’

Salacia fell in love with the healing benefits of yoga through free movement, as a tool for grounding and strength both emotionally and physically. Coming from a dance background, she enjoys incorporating a sense of fluidity and creativity into sequences, to harness rising energy and balance when flowing through asanas. Her intention is to hold a safe space with a lighthearted, joyful approach to the practice, in order for every individual to freely delve into the beauty of what yoga has to offer. Her classes are dynamic and energising, with a focus on finding space on and off the mat, and most of all, enjoying the movement. Expect to be playfully challenged and lovingly taken care of! 

Pilates Equipment

Tetbury Pilates Studio is equipped with 3 STOTT PILATES V2MAX reformers complete with Vertical Frame.  These ingenious machines are designed to work with your body for maximum results whatever your needs.  Suitable for everyone, whether you are a complete beginner, recovering from illness or injury, a new mum wishing to get back in shape or an athlete keen to iron out muscular imbalances and improve performance.

The springs used to provide resistance mimic the natural rhythm of the body’s muscles brilliantly. The results are fast and are quickly evident. Your body becomes stronger from the inside out, creating stable functioning joints, improving muscle firing patterns and giving a strong sleek physique.

As well as the main Studio, we have a one-to-one studio room, equipped with a further STOTT PILATES V2MAX reformer with vertical frame and a Stability Chair.

Clare ensures exercises are tailored to your specific needs.

Sessions are booked at a mutually convenient time allowing clients far greater flexibility.

How Do I Get Started?

Tetbury Pilates operates a welcoming studio environment in which to practise pilates and hopes that the following requests will help the studio run efficiently for your comfort and ours.


If you would like to join one of our Mathwork, Barre, Yoga or TRX classes, then send us an email at We can then check spaces in the class and book you on to attend.


If you would like to join a reformer/ mixed equipment class, then we ask that you attend a 1-2-1 session first to get you up to speed on the equipment before joining the course and go through the basics of the movements and exercises.


If you would like to have a 1-2-1 or Duet session, whether it is before joining a class or for ongoing 1-2-1’s, we ask that you contact us and together we will arrange a time to come in for a one hour session where we will take you through a postural analysis, the basic principles and teach you the basic movement patterns and exercises.

Click on the link to download a PDF of the Health Screening Form. This is to be completed to the best of your knowledge and brought in to your first appointment.
If a session is being undertaken whilst you arrive please respect other clients and please come in quietly and move through to the lobby area. Here there is space to hang coats and shoes and a toilet.

When you have finished your workout please clean down the equipment you have been using, using the spray and flannels provided,  before moving through to collect your belongings.

What To Wear
Ensure appropriate clothing is worn during your sessions for your own comfort, those around you and the instructor. Fitted clothing that allows you to move with ease and safety is suitable especially when working on the equipment. Ideally have a layer to take off when you have warmed up.

Ideally no zips on clothing please – it scratches our equipment

Please bring with you a clean pair of socks to change into before exercising when using the Reformer equipment. This is for hygiene reasons when using the straps on the reformer. If you have socks with grips on the sole then these are beneficial  for many exercises.

Personal hygiene should be at a good level for both instructors and clients – this is to include feet!!
