Lynsey Arkley, Certified Pilates Instructor & Rehab Assistant
Born in Hampshire England I was a personal trainer for 5 years before Pilates got my attention. Suffering from a variety of physical complaints from my previous career with racehorses I was advised by someone wiser than myself to try Pilates exercise to address my pain and muscle imbalances. I have never looked back! I studied initially with Stott Pilates in London in 2004.
Since then I have been continually inspired by the huge benefits of Pilates for fitness and especially for rehabilitation. I am a now committed to specialize with Pilates on Reformer, pre and post natal and with specific work for special populations (Parkinson’s disease, MS, osteoporosis, arthritis etc). I truly love being able to tailor Joseph Pilate’s work to help individuals with specific challenges with the boundless variation it offers. I also have a Diploma in advanced personal training from Oxfords, Premier International Training Company and Remedial Massage from The London School of Sports Massage. I continue to fall in love with Pilates every time I help a client reach a new level of rehabilitation or fitness. I relish the triumphs, however small or large and hope to continue to learn from my clients as much as they do from me. I have recently moved to Nanaimo with my young family and looking forward to making it my home.
