Tamara Cook

Pilates Movement Teacher

Hello! My name is Tamara and I am a Pilates teacher from London. I teach reformer and matwork classes, semi privates and private session.

Trainer Introduction

Movement is life

Pilates Teacher specializing in working with conditions such as scoliosis, back pain, shoulder and neck injuries. Private lessons are recommended where you will be written a personal program. You then have the option to join the semi private lessons to complete your program, sharing the room with a maximum of 4 people. These classes are also recommended for people who have dedicated training goals.

I started teaching over 15 years ago starting as a gym floor instructor for Virgin Active UK, then as a gym floor manager and Pilates teacher. I became interested in the Pilates method as I was continually suffering from injuries from my personal training routine. Pilates helped me retrain my body movements so I could move more effectively.

I became a self- employed Personal Trainer and left Virgin Active. I also wanted to deepen my Pilates knowledge and embarked on a course with the Pilates Foundation. This was a 2 and half year course studying movement, anatomy and the Pilates Method with the renowned Anne-Marie Zulkahari . I retrained on the Matwork and learnt how to use the Pilates Equipment. The course was a huge personal challenge which involved lectures and regular hours assisting in the studio. It taught me how to look after my own body and my clients. I started working as a Pilates teacher in studios across London and Surrey. I really appreciate the fact studios offer small classes and the full Pilates Equipment experience.

Being in a car accident helped me to understand the importance of rehab work. I had a lucky escape with just whiplash but I had to learn and understand how to look after my body properly. If I don’t take care of myself my neck soon lets me know! My classes reflect my personal training background but also my passion for rehab work.

I decided to move the Netherlands to expand my horizons. I love living here and particularly love the cycling culture.

After teaching classes locally then I became the proud owner of Huis Van Pilates in January 2021.

Looking forward to meeting you in the studio soon!
