One of my prime goals ahead of each of our sessions together is always to make you feel better than you did when you first came into the room. Our sessions are about whole body workouts which will develop endurance and strength in your body. Together with my encouragement, thorough instructions and your commitment the possibilities of what you can achieve are endless! 


Thank you for visiting my website!
My name is Linda Johansson, I'm originally from Sweden and have lived in the UK for 23 years. In addition to teaching Pilates, I've spent many years as an actor but nowadays I mostly focus on doing Voiceover work. 

I've been teaching Pilates for 9 years but have been practising it closer to 15. For years I used to be a real gym bunny but I'd come to point where I found the work in the gym to be very monotonous and I always felt stiff with a muscular imbalance. I was under stimulated with aestically pleasing muscles which had no functionality at all. There was virtually no mobility to speak of. From a longevity point of view I knew I had to look further. A friend of mine recommended Pilates and it didn't take long before I had gotten the 'Pilates Bug'. The work in Pilates had everything I had been looking for during my years in the gym. This work was deep, targeting muscles I didn't even know I had! My joints felt more spacious and lubricated. I started to move more the way nature had intended and it was fun! Each lesson also had a calming effect on my mind and body, something I'd never felt during my gym sessions.  

Pilates still keeps challenging me every day. You never stop learning. Don't get my wrong, I still like to use a weight during some of my sessions but the exercises and the way in which I use the weights have so much more depth, variety and efficiency now.  

Pilates is a lifelong journey with plenty of colourful variety. After each session you do feel a little bit stronger and more mobile. It doesn't necessarily get easier, it's more that the exercises we do, feel as if they are executed with 'more ease'. 
I'm  well into my forties now and can safely say that I'm a lot stronger and more flexible than I was in my 20's and 30's. 

I studied Pilates at internationally renowned JPilates Training and Education. I have a Master’s Certificate which includes Matwork Level 3, Pre and Post Natal, JPilates Barre, Pilates for Children and Teens, Pilates for the older Adult and the Equipment Collection (Essential and Advanced Reformer, Wunda Chair, Barrels, and Cadillac).


I'm also a qualified Indoor Rowing Instructor, certified by British Rowing. Rowing is my go to for cardiovascular training. 

Just like Pilates it works the whole body with every stroke without adding any unnecessary strain to our joints. It also has a calming effect on our mind. 

My Group Mat Pilates classes are small and friendly so that I can focus on each individual's ability and needs.  I prefer  to keep my groups fairly small (from one-to-ones to a maximum of 12) so that the focus can remain on each participant and ensuring that they are challenged, happy, and getting the most out of each session. My one-to-ones can be done at your home or mine. I have a Wunda Chair at home which I like to use in combination with regular mat work and small equipment for well rounded sessions, tailored to each individual's goal and needs. For those that wish to add cardiovascular training too to their sessions, you can also hop onto the rowing machine. :D
