Equilibrium Pilates



Caroline Payne

APPI Certified Instructor - BSc(Hons)Physiotherapy 

Here's a little bit about me...

I flew the Cornish nest at 18 to follow my dreams of becoming a Physio and graduated from Cardiff University in 2007. Shortly after gaining further sports specific qualifications, I initially worked in the Health & Spa world as a fitness instructor and masseuse. I spent my 20's growing my knowledge and gaining valuable experience and skills in the NHS, working my way up to Specialist Musculoskeletal and Women’s Health Physiotherapist. During this period I also underwent my Pilates training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and provided Clinical Pilates classes alongside individual treatment clinics and rehabilitation classes for the NHS.

After returning from a period working and traveling in the Med on luxury super yachts with my now husband, Dan, I’m so pleased to be back in Cornwall and to be following my passion for delivering high quality Pilates instruction. I am a certified APPI Mat Pilates instructor and I like share my knowledge of how the body moves to assist your Pilates experience. I teach small groups to allow for hands-on feedback, to help facilitate your muscle activation.

With my previous background in Physiotherapy, I always aim to ensure every client is uniquely tailored for… whether you’re post-op, post-natal, or just wanting a safe and effective class, I’m happy to guide your Pilates journey.
