Emma Hodgson

Pilates Instructor

Brenda McCooey - Yoga Teacher (at SW Fitness Gym Studio in Tarporley, Cheshire)


Emma began working life as a primary school teacher in London and quickly worked her way up to becoming an Ofsted commended Deputy Head.

During her time in education, Emma coached experienced teachers and mentored those new to the profession to support them in delivering the highest quality teaching and learning experience for the pupils of the school.

Coming from a background of swimming and cycling and being married to a competitive athlete, Emma has always had a passion for fitness and physical well being. Following her own personal journey with Pilates to heal an injury she decided to put her teaching skills to use in a different way and is training to become a BASI Pilates Instructor.

Philosophy on exercise and wellbeing

Emma’s philosophy on fitness revolves around passion, compassion, and excellence, drawing inspiration from Joseph Pilates’ belief that Pilates embodies the complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit.

Understanding the pivotal role of the spinal column in overall vitality, she embraces Pilates as a holistic approach to exercise and wellbeing.

Witnessing firsthand the transformative benefits of Pilates, Emma is dedicated to fostering physical and mental wellness through mindful movement and alignment, striving to embody Joseph Pilates’ timeless wisdom that one’s age is reflected in the health of their spine.
