With a background in gymnastics, Jason first discovered the Pilates method in the late 1990's whilst living in California. His belief in this revolutionary fitness method led him to train as the apprentice and protégé to Paul McLinden (Royal Academy of Dance and the first Head of Teacher Training for Body Control Pilates). Jason and Paul co-founded Ocean Wave Pilates in Brighton and Hove in 2002 and during his 20+ years of teaching, Jason has trained side by side with some of the biggest names in the Pilates industry: Lynne Robinson, James D'Silva, Alan Herdman, and Siri Galliano. Jason has taught Pilates as a guest lecturer for the National Theatre of Scotland and the University of Chichester's Department of Dance, setting up the University's first classical Pilates studio. Most recently, Jason joined holiday experts Yoga Explorers, teaching Pilates poolside at the world famous Tigmi Retreat in Marrakech and the 5-star eco-resort Prana del Mar on the Mexican Pacific coast. Jason brings both his experience and enthusiasm for teaching the Pilates method, from Ante/Postnatal rehabilition to high-intensity strength conditioning.

Why Pilates ... ?

Check back soon to see an updated bio! Maria has been teaching Pilates since 2006, having qualified with the PILATES Foundation® UK , whose teacher training programme is one of the most rigorous in the UK. Since qualifying Maria has had the great privilege of experiencing first hand, the tutoring of Ron Fletcher and Lolita San Miguel, two of the remaining Pilates “elders” or “original teachers” who were mentored and trained by Joseph Pilates himself !!

Pilates is suitable for EVERYONE regardless of age, gender or fitness level.  Using gravity, breath and resistance Pilates targets muscles groups - with specific focus on the abdominals - to re-educate movement patterns and rebalance the body.


"After 10 sessions you will notice a difference, after 20 sessions other's will notice a difference, and after 30 sessions you will have a whole new body." - Joseph Pilates
