My aim is to teach a fun, friendly and effective class full of harte!

Kirsty Harte is a Northumberland based Chartered Physiotherapist with 20 years experience. Having found a love for Pilates for her own body during this time, she became aware of its importance in helping with injury and in assisting with musculoskeletal problems, as she noticed it aided recovery by normalising movement, improving postural awareness and by improving core strength. This led to her completing an intensive training course in London in 2004, with Body Control Pilates.

She has taught throughout the Northeast since 2004 and is a well known and respected Pilates teacher.

Testimonials

Kirsty is a fantastic, highly experienced and knowledgeable Pilates teacher. I've had the pleasure of being a regular attender of her classes for the past 8 years. Her classes are well structured and flowing and Kirsty's excellent knowledge of anatomy means she will always ensure correct alignment and posture whilst comfortably adapting poses depending on ability level, injury and antenatally. Kirsty's pilates classes have helped keep me active and fit throughout all 3 of my pregnancies and subsequently regain my core strength and flexibility postnatally.

I have been attending Kirsty’s Pilates classes for over 4 years now. When I started I was suffering from quite a few injuries. As Kirsty is a trained physio she completely understood my needs and was able to adapt moves to help me recover.
I absolutely love my Monday Pilates class and I am now doing the HIT class too.

As someone with sensory sensitivities, attending exercise sessions can be difficult. Kirsty’s classes are different: her approach is friendly and responsive, and her classes are quiet and calm. This means that I can enjoy my Pilates and focus on what I’m doing.

I simply can’t recommend Kirsty Harte highly enough. She rehabilitated me during a very difficult period in my life after a c-section and a lung operation left me with a plethora of symptoms, movement issues and severe pain.

After a recommendation and a subsequent introduction, we embarked on a programme of 1 to 1 Pilates sessions. Kirsty was completely unfazed by the added complication of a baby and toddler to contend with. In fact, she embraced the challenge and sometimes even incorporated them into our exercise sessions!
 
Kirsty’s extensive physiotherapy background coupled with her comprehensive Pilates training and experience enabled her to devise a series of bespoke exercise programmes which were totally tailored to my needs. We have worked together for a couple of years now and my mobility, range of movement, core fitness and general health wellbeing have totally been transformed.
 
Thank you so much Kirsty for everything you have done to help me. It is such a delight working with you that I forget we are even exercising!

My wife had been going to one of Kirsty's classes for many years before I finally gave it a go. I didn't think it was a man's thing - I was more into the stereotypical running, fell walking, golf, badminton etc however, i've been going to Kirsty's Monday class for about 4 years now and I love it! I'm 61, semi- retired and have noticed a great improvement in my flexibility and balance. I even do the HIT class on a Friday and think I manage to keep up with the youngsters! If you're apprehensive - just give it a go - you'll love it too!

I have been going to Kirsty’s Pilates sessions for 6 years now and love it. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 7 years ago and believe Pilates really helps manage my symptoms and has helped strengthen my core muscles. Kirsty is aware of my condition and adapts the movements if necessary. I wholeheartedly recommend Kirsty as a brilliant teacher!
