A little about me…
My name is Corinne Hutchinson. I live in Maidenhead with my husband and 2 children.
I have always enjoyed fitness and exercise, was a keen hockey and netball player in my school days. After having my children, I injured my back through exercise and carrying the babies on my hip which lead to a herniated disc in my lower back. This is how I found Pilates and fell in love with it. I now manage my injury through self practice of Pilates regularly. It has allowed me to live pain free, run again and lift weights.
I teach reformer and mat Pilates at POWMAK in Windsor and mat Pilates for Achieva in Cox Green as well my own mat Pilates classes. I also have my own reformer studio in Hurley where I work with clients on a one-to-one basis. I have worked with all bodies and a huge range of injuries in order to help re-balance muscles, strengthen, stretch and tone muscles, mobilise joints, strengthen the core and deep stabilising muscles to build the blocks to support the body. Pilates is a fantastic form of exercise for everyone bringing the mind and body together amongst many other benefits.
I am currently studying for my Education and Assessment qualification and deliver Pilates courses at POWMAK to student teachers.
I have just launched new MOTR classes in Berkshire, a form of Pilates on a roller that takes reformer exercises to a portable piece of equipment. You can find more about these classes on our website .
You can find me on social media @cozpilates.
What is Pilates?
Pilates not only strengthens the core muscles, it tones and strengthens all muscles throughout the body. It mobilises joints leaving you able to move more freely. Pilates helps to stretch, increasing the flexibility of muscles and re-balances them correcting any postural issues. I love the mind body connection making you have to really think about what you are doing to fire up specific muscles. Coordination, balance, concentration, precision are additional big Pilates principles too. I ❤ control and the flow of the moves from one to another. Not forgetting the breathing which helps connect deep abdominals and pelvic floor therefore assisting movement efficiency as well as bringing calm and relaxation 🧘♀️. On top of all of this, it helps mental well-being.
