In your own words – describe “the Spirit of Polestar”

JE: Polestar allows you to find the teacher you are deep inside, without judgement. It gently pulls out the best parts of you and encourages you to connect mind, body and soul.

What three words come to mind when you think of “Polestar Pilates”





What do you love about teaching Pilates?

JE: I love that I get to pass my Polestar knowledge on to my clients — and allow them to make amazing changes in not only their body, but their thinking too.

Where did you take your Training and who was the educator?

JE: I trained at Moss Pilates in London, under the watchful eyes of Liz Bussey and Diane Nye.

What are your current Inspirations? 

JE: Carl & Julia Moss – the family atmosphere they have created among the London team and the beautiful studios that they keep immaculate.

Why Pilates? How did you find the practice?

JE: I used to be a professional dancer and found that Pilates prevented injury. Upon training as a personal trainer I stumbled across the reformer, loved the benefits and never looked back. Top fan!

What do you hope to convey in your teaching?

JE: Passion, Energy, Enthusiasm, Life and Wellness

What is your favorite Quote? How do you apply this?

JE: ‘Do as much as you need to do, and as little as you don’t!’
I use this in all aspects of my life to keep a watchful eye on the energy I expend on exercise, business, home life, my body and on whom I spend it.

What is your Favorite Apparatus or favorite way to move?

JE: I love to hang upside down on the Trapeze Table. My body feels weightless and I get to let go of all stress and tension. When I stand back on to my feet after this, I feel well balanced and rejuvenated.
