Both Sam and Glenn Wilkinson have an impressive repertoire of experience and qualifications behind them. Having trained in classical and contemporary dance and worked professionally for many years in theatre with some of the UK’s most prestigious dance companies, they already had an acute understanding of anatomy and how the body works and moves.
During their professional dance careers and alongside teaching and mentoring at several leading dance institutes, they both trained as certified Pilates Instructors. They have both been Directors of The Movement Base, a successful Pilates studio based in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, since 2016.
As well as being a certified Pilates Instructor, Sam is a qualified Personal Trainer. She also acquired a Level 5 Diploma in Sports/Remedial Massage as well as a Diploma in Massage for Pregnancy Integrated Myofascial Therapy under Ruth Duncan. As a professional Therapist, she has had the opportunity to work in clinics alongside Chiropractors, various Marathon events and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Glenn originally trained with Dreas Renyeke, one of the pioneers to bring Pilates to London in the 1970s. He has also trained with STOTT PILATES, broadening his already extensive knowledge of the Pilates method of movement. He currently works with the renowned Darien Gold, second-generation classical Pilates Instructor alongside his teaching at The Movement Base.
Between them, they have a wealth of knowledge to contribute, and their passion for helping people lead a healthier and fitter lifestyle through better movement is unparalleled. They are both delighted to join forces with InstructorLive and share their vast body of experience with a much broader audience.
