Hello! My name is Lucy Filce, I have been practicing Pilates since 2000 & qualified as a teacher in 2007. My journey has taught me that Pilates heals. It is a wonderful system of therapeutic exercises that I have seen recover people from their pain. In 2007 I was using Pilates for fitness; teaching group classes with the aim to get strong & flexible. As the years have passed I have found that the majority of my attendees come for rehabilitation. Many individuals are recommended to come by their physiotherapists, Osteopaths & Chiropractors. The majority of them have back pain of some description including slipped discs & sciatica. I also see a lot of participants who are recovering from hip & knee replacements. As I came into to more contact with contraindications I started to tailor my CPD courses for knowledge. Now I keep in touch with the latest practices in knee, hip, foot, spinal and shoulder surgery by attending regular lectures with the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Birmingham and Birmingham Knee and Shoulder Clinic.
I teach regular group classes for fitness and I also teach group classes for rehabilitation.
I do one to one training for fitness and rehab.
I assess postural alignment and prescribe exercise for correcting misalignments.
I also offer weekly recorded classes for you to do at home in your own time.
