Natasha Ratcliffe - Clinical Pilates Teacher
Natasha was formally a dancer, she trained at Bird College Theatre School and has always had a high awareness of the body and a love for movement. During her time as a dancer, she started to explore Pilates to keep her body healthy and also to rehabilitate her own injuries. She continued the practice as she finished her dance career and secured a position in an office role with The London Ambulance Service. It was during this time she learnt the true importance of movement and the impact it has on your wellbeing.
Having decided that she wanted to use this knowledge and share this with others, she began her journey to become a fully accredited Pilates Teacher by studying with the prestigious Polestar Pilates UK. After she completed her training, she began working with clients 1-1 to focus on their specific requirements & goals, as well as teaching groups in studios. She loves teaching and feels extremely passionate about helping others to find a deeper connection within their body to improve their wellbeing and quality of life.
To further her anatomical knowledge, she completed a Level 3 Diploma in Massage Therapy, Anatomy & Physiology and has spent many months shadowing an osteopath to better understand common injuries and pathologies and how best to approach them using the Pilates method. She is now continuing her studies with Polestar and currently doing her comprehensive teacher training on all of the Pilates apparatus to further her skills and knowledge in rehabilitation.

“I’d always been curious about Chinese medicine but I never felt I had the need for it—or in other words, I had no idea what it could treat.
I was in my early thirties when my life started to fall apart. I’d been playing super woman successfully taking care of six kids but ended up completely worn out. Life stopped feeling wonderful. And so when someone suggested acupuncture to me the idea of feeling better by lying down and having a doctor stimulate my points seemed incredibly attractive.
I received a long course of treatment (12 weeks) and rediscovered my joie de vivre. I wasn’t just coping anymore, I was a highly functioning, creative and driven individual again.
The results were so undeniable the next step seemed obvious, I had to go and study it. That was 20 years ago. Today, acupuncture still seems to me an endless fountain of knowledge, wisdom and power and it’s what I’m grateful for devoting my life to.”
