The Free Your Spine pilates Movement Studio

I teach people in midlife how to integrate fun and creative movements in daily life, to release back pain and body tensions . By way of motioning our spine, we are able to shift our mood, muscle stiffness and mindset in powerful ways.

Free your spine method mission

As our lives have got busier and busier, we’ve fallen into roles we think we should fit into to conform to society.

We’ve forgotten how to express ourselves and release the playfulness within all of us.

We have become increasingly stagnant and tense in our bodies, and many of us fall prey to the mind cave of overwhelm, stress, depression and anxiety.

My mission is to support, guide and empower you to feel stronger, lighter and freer in your back, mind and body, ultimately helping you to connect back into your true creative/empowered self.

Four core pillars of FYS

Align

Part of my motivation with this method is to inspire people to FEEL more.

I use the body as a metaphor for how we would like to navigate and move through our life- a life that is full of flow, ease and freedom from back and body pain.

Empower

After teaching dance, movement and Pilates for over a decade, I saw an opportunity for a new, more flexible approach to moving the body mindfully but playfully.

I wanted to develop a creative way to relieve back pain and bring fun back into the body and spine.

After testing and refining my approach with my students over years, I’ve created a unique Free Your Spine “move little and often” approach to make my method accessible to people everywhere.

Flow

With FYS we champion the importance of flow massively by tapping into and accessing a continuous stretch in motion, via movement.

This method is another tool to add to your existing toolbox to support you in navigating your way to optimal wellbeing in your mind and body.

Play

Emotions are energy in motion. Our feelings live in our body.

By way of motioning our spine we are able to shift our mood and mindset in powerful ways.

Connecting to our feelings via moving our body is something that really underlines the FYS method.

As seen in

In 2023, I brought back a workshop that was really successful in 2022 titled Free Your Spine to Free Your Mind.

As the title implies, this workshop centered around movement, stretching, and clearing the mind. We removed all of the tables and arranged the chairs in a circle to open up the space. Talking to Nicola afterwards, she said the session went even better than in 2022 and people really opened up, let go, and pushed themselves even when it felt awkward to do so.

Moreover, everyone walked out of that room talking to each other and smiling and that to me is what makes our event beautiful.

It's an absolute pleasure working with Nicola! In just a few sessions, she has been able to unlock areas of tension which have been problematic for years.

Her knowledge and experience is incredibly extensive, and she has created a peaceful yet playful atmosphere in her studio. My body feels stronger and more aligned since our work together.

Nicola is my go to Pilates expert whenever I need to get myself into shape quickly. She has also helped me get through a couple of injuries safely enabling me to take up all the sports I enjoy.

I highly recommend Nicola, 121 training with her has been invaluable.

Nicola ran a Free Your Spine session during a workshop I curated for 45 stressed and exhausted cultural leaders. Despite my misgivings, Nicola had us moving, shaking, dancing and "freeing" ourselves in every way.

The session not only offered us simple practical tips on how to stay flexible during an average working day but also gave us a major endorphin shot releasing our energies and raising our spirits.

Nicola is skilled, knowledgeable and has an infectious spirit. If only we could bottle her energy...
