Let me introduce myself!

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

 

Are you a mother, perimenopausal, menopausal suffering from pelvic floor issues or back pain? I’m here to help you.

Let me introduce myself. I’m Hannah Epps a previous ballet dancer, post car accident 16 years ago and a mother of 2 babies (with very long labours and difficult births). 

I went from happy and carefree to excutiating back and hip pain having to follow a strict daily exercise routine to get out of bed!

I’m now living a carefree, mobile and fit life again, running around with the kids, able to do normal cardio exercise and work in the garden for a few hours a day without pain.

So let me help you be painfree and more mobile or just gain deeper knowledge of Pilates to focus on joint, spinal mobility and balance.

I have a unique style of Pilates by incorporating lots of stretching, balance work and spinal mobility with the traditional strenghtning exercises. So come and join us.

I CAN HELP YOU –

-BUILD Core and abdominal strength – i.e post natal rectus diastasis

-STRENGTHEN Pelvic floor – i.e urge and stress incontinence, prolapse

-REDUCE Hip, joint and neck pain – improving postural alignment

-REDUCE Back pain – improve mobility and strength

-IMPROVE wellbeing and get your body back to pre kids strength

-IMPROVE flexibility of muscles with Pure Stretch

-IMPROVE balance using stability exercises

 

I GET PERSONAL AND WANT TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR PROBLEMS, AS WE ARE ALL UNIQUE. I LOVE SUPPORTING WOMEN AND HELP THE FIND SOLUTIONS FOR THEIR BODY ISSUES, SO LET ME HELP YOU BOOK IN FOR A PERSONAL CHAT….. 

Ive been teaching for 16 years and founded Farnham Pilates in 2005, then Pilates Community in 2018 for Online Classes. I’m passionate about Pilates; for strength, mobility and keeping myself out of pain with achy joints and a bad back. As a mum of two, I also had pelvic floor issues, a prolapse and many of my clients are post-natal or peri-menopausal.

I loved doing ballet from the age of 5 to 20s, making my dolls learn how to do the splits. But after a car accident in 2004 I had to have a strict morning exercise routine to stay “strong” and do stretches to help release any back pain. I work closely with physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists to coordinate on a clients care to get a “whole body” approach.

My understanding of the body, especially the back, neck and posture, is immense and I take great interest in finding new approaches and research and finding solutions to help clients. I like to broaden my knowledge with regular courses and, while I use this knowledge to help clients, I feel that Pilates is safe, comfortable, effective and manageable for all. 

Over the 15 years of teaching in Farnham, Surrey I have run thousands of classes, in various venues and helped teach in many local studios including David Lloyd. I find my positive caring approach has proved popular with my clients, with many still attending classes in Farnham Surrey since 2005. 

 

Hannah is testament to the power of Pilates to help manage and overcome body issues, so if you are a women and need solutions and mobility, she can help you.
