Towards the end of 2021 we welcomed a fantastic new clinician to our team: experienced Clinical Pilates teacher and Movement Coach Rebecca Faith Wield. To give you a chance to get to know Rebecca better, we sat down with her to ask her a few questions about her background and her passion for movement.
What made you decide to train as a Pilates teacher/Movement Coach?
I was introduced to Pilates by my physio in Germany post knee surgery. I was a professional ballet dancer at the time and Pilates helped me return to performance with increased strength and body awareness. It also sparked a lifelong interest in movement analysis. 17 years ago I stopped dancing and decided to train as a Pilates teacher. I’m just lucky that I love teaching and I get to see the tangible development in someone’s body and what a positive impact that has in their life.
What kind of people do you teach? There isn’t a limit on who I teach, as Pilates and movement in general is totally adaptable to the individual - we are designed to move! I have a lot of experience in rehab work that is complimentary to Physiotherapy/Osteopathy, pre/post-natal Pilates, as well as more creative movement work with actors/performers. The main requirement is curiosity and a commitment to doing the work.
What do you like best about working in Kentish Town? I moved to North London just before Covid hit and I am totally sold; the sense of community here is unbelievable. I love that the Performance Centre is an oasis of calm space, tucked away just off the Kentish Town high road which buzzes with colour and life.
