Luke first learned the benefits of Pilates to support his full-time training as a Trampoline Gymnast for Great Britain. Following this, he used Pilates as a form of body conditioning during his career as an Acrobat and Dancer for Cirque du Soleil in the USA. Subsequently, he qualified as a teacher with the Pilates Foundation enabling him to further discover movement and to share his practice with others.
For Luke, Pilates is, and should be, accessible to everyone and it allows deep exploration into quality of movement. He believes Pilates training supports many acts ranging from functional daily tasks, all the way up to complicated athletic movements performed in Sports, Dance and Acrobatics. Regardless of experience there is always something to work on with Pilates; with his knowledge and extensive training, classes and exercises can be tailored to individual ability level and personal goals.
