Biography

Loraine qualified as a physiotherapist in 1995 and became interested in Pilates whilst doing a postgraduate muscle balance course.  She discovered that Pilates is a fantastic way to work with the body to improve muscle control, flexibility and posture.  This led to Loraine studying with STOTT PILATES® and she qualified to teach Matwork in 1999.  She has since been continuing her professional development by training in the use of the major studio equipment and achieved her full certification status in September 2010.

Loraine is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and an Advanced Level 3 Instructor on the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).  She also has a Master of Science degree in Applied Human Science.

Loraine worked for the NHS as an outpatient physiotherapist for 16 years.  As well as teaching for Mbodies Training Academy Loraine also now combines physiotherapy and Pilates on a private basis.
