FAQs for Abby McLachlan

  • What should people expect from your class?

    I teach the class I'd love to do as a punter - so, Pilates principles as the basis for every exercise, but lots of variation and creative sequencing to really work the whole body.

  • If you weren’t a pilates teacher, what would you be?

    Well, I also own East of Eden and that takes up all my time, but I studied law at university, and always wanted to be a criminal barrister. I'd give that a go in my parallel life.

  • What advice would you give to your 16 year old self?

    To spend a bit more time working in the library at Oxford, and less time in the bar/rave.

    To believe in yourself more,.

  • What’s your favourite asana/pilates exercise and why?

    Mermaid - got to get into that lateral flexion

  • What do you do in your spare time?

    Work!

    Also hang out with my 8 year old, Raffy, and our dog Gizmo.
