Woking Yoga and Pilates

Hello, I'm Ali Williamson. I've been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 20 years and have taught many disciplines - Boxercise, Spinning, Body Pump and Step... to name a few. I've seen many fads in the fitness industry - the "latest, greatest" workouts that are eventually discredited or lose popularity. And I've seen Pilates and Yoga endure throughout. Why? Because they work! In a results-orientated environment many thousands of people have seen for themselves the benefits of Pilates and Yoga.

It is a joy to attend Ali's classes, her knowledge and instruction are excellent and you always leave having had a good workout and looking forward to the next time.

- Margaret Tinlin

I teach Pilates and Yoga from a fitness perspective - this means that I can combine the ancient wisdom of Yoga and the not-quite-so-ancient-but-quite-old principles of Pilates with modern, evidence based facts.

My classes have a friendly and easy going dynamic and are limited in numbers. I give lots of verbal and visual information but without too much hands on interference or strict alignment instruction, as I know this makes some people feel uncomfortable. I also believe everyone is different and to expect conformity may be unrealistic. However, you have only to ask and I will give you all the time you need, privately before or after the class, to help you to understand, achieve and enjoy your class experience.

Classes are currently as follows (but more may be added so, if you don't see what you want here, please contact me and I will let you know when new classes are arranged.)
