Barry's interest in Pilates began when he joined a class some years ago with a friend who had back pain. Barry soon recognised the value of Pilates and decided to train to become an instructor. Since then, Barry has trained extensively with some of the world's leading authorities on Pilates, gaining recognition within the Pilates community. He has presented Pilates to the nursing school at Liverpool John Moore's University, was invited to guest teach a professional football team in Sweden and created specialised classes for adults with learning difficulties and physical disabilities, showing Barry's belief that Pilates really is a method that can improve the lives of everyone.
Barrys classes are very fun and informal. He also offers 1-2-1 sessions on the studio equipment. Barry teaches at Pilates York HQ, The Stables Yoga Centre, Nunmill Street, York.
Anna is a dance artist and movement facilitator from Barcelona and based in Yorkshire. She first started training in Pilates as part of her dance studies and the remarkable benefits of the practice in her own body inspired her to become a Pilates instructor. She gained her Pilates teacher training through private tuition from Pilates instructor and mentor Barry Vardy.
Anna’s sessions combine the mechanics and efficiency of the Pilates technique with material that she draws from her expertise in Dance and Movement. Her classes focus on a holistic approach to the body, placing breath at the centre of the practice.
