New Pilates and Barre teacher

Philippa Basanti

Pip originally trained as a sprinter from the age of 8 years old. Injury led her into
coaching athletics during her teens. She then went on to study Contemporary
Dance and fell in love with movement, and all things physical. Training to be a
Personal Trainer after University brought her back into the world of fitness;
working in a variety of settings with people from all walks of life.

Her quest to gain more knowledge led her to become a Yoga teacher, bringing
strength, power and flow into her classes. She studied Pilates whilst travelling
and living in New Zealand that greatly influenced her path, shifting focus onto
injury prevention and rehabilitation. On moving back to the UK she ran a
boutique Barre fitness studio in Bristol, finding success in challenging the
balance, coordination and core strength of many.

With over ten years teaching experience culminating in a vast array of training
techniques, Pip has evolved a style of teaching that is fun, precise, and pushes
you to achieve your goal. Whether your goal is pre or post-natal, rehabilitation
or simply conditioning the body to perform at its best.
