Gemma Andrews

  Gemma was first introduced to Pilates whilst pursuing a professional dance career in New York, initially attending classes in order to supplement her dance training. Following a serious back injury Gemma relocated to Miami, Florida where she was fortunate to study under Brent Anderson, principle educator and founder of the internationally renowned Polestar method of Pilates, as part of her recovery. She then further developed her Pilates technique with Alba Carter of the Miami City Ballet.
Returning to the UK and after completing a BSc in Management Studies, Gemma undertook her Pilates teacher-training and certification with Polestar Pilates Education finishing top of her class. Her clients now range from a multiple sclerosis sufferer, to professional dancers, to office workers to marathon runners.

"Suffering a chronic back injury early on in my dance career, I witnessed first-hand the rehabilitative qualities of the Pilates Method and I passionately believe in the physical and mental benefits that Pilates has to offer. I completely equate my successful recovery with the Pilates instruction I was given and am passionate to pass on the method to others. My injury had left me unable to walk all but very short distances, today I am back dancing professionally!
