Oxana El-cherbini is an APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) certified Pilates instructor. She has completed a Comprehensive Matwork Instructor Programme (APPI) and does regular CPD training courses specific for different areas of the body.

Her Pilates classes are for all levels and body types. Through her gentle class, become more aware of body alignment and deepen your understanding of nuances of the movements to gain the fullest effect and most enjoyment.

Oxana says:"My Pilates journey started after I had my fourth child. I really wanted to get back into pre-pregnancy shape, and address diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles). Pilates was the only exercise that gave me a real sense of control over my body in a way that I have never experienced before. The transformation I went through was overwhelming. It was not just only about altering my external shape anymore, but far more nuanced. I have become more aware of my alignment.

Pilates slowly but surely changed my relationship with the world and myself - it was almost inevitable after going to Pilates classes for several years that I took the plunge and completed my teacher training. It was the best decision I’ve ever made! My love for Pilates and fascination with the human body has sparked a thirst for study. I have since been regularly attending master classes with the world known movement professionals. I have just completed a Shoulder Rehabilitation CPD course and have already enrolled for a Healthy Hips CPD course this Spring.
