Pilates Instructor Amanda Sommerville (Coming Soon)
Amanda Sommerville is a qualified Pilates Equipment Instructor trained through Tania Huddart (PMA) at Hearts and Bones Pilates Centre, New Zealand.
Amanda has been successfully teaching Pilates in New Zealand and more recently in London as a rehabilitation and movement specialist alongside physiotherapists. Amanda has developed individual pilates programmes for professional athletes including the Wellington Phoenix Football team, Wellington Saints Basketball team and New Zealand School of Dance scholars programme.
Pre pilates, Amanda studied full-time classical ballet at the New Zealand School of Dance. She has performed professionally with the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company and Locreado Contemporary Dance Company, Sydney.

Pilates played an influential role after Amanda’s career as a professional ballet dancer, due to a major hip injury. She changed her focus from dance into learning more about the biomechanics of movement which since then Amanda has developed a great passion for injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Amanda’s expertise and experience will provide all athletes, dancers, women and children with the ultimate skill set needed to prevent and/or recover from an injury on and rehabilitation.
