I am a fully qualified Pilates Teacher with a background in Cardiac Intensive Care nursing at one of London’s leading Heart and Lung Centres – Royal Brompton Hospital (RBH). After five years of clinical experience, I went on to become the Lead Educator in Resuscitation at RBH before eventually setting up my own Resuscitation Teaching Consultancy in London.


In my spare time, I was passionate about exercise - teaching aerobics, playing squash and running. However, years of high impact sport and my professional career eventually took its toll on my lower back and I turned to Pilates to rehabilitate. Having experienced the amazing benefits of Pilates, I was inspired to become a Pilates Teacher.


I trained with the internationally recognised organisation POLESTAR at Moss Pilates in London and have since launched Louise Gilbertson Pilates.


Teaching is what I love to do and I am able to use my medical knowledge and teaching expertise to offer safe and effective classes for all my clients. My aim is to improve health and well being in a relaxed environment which is stimulating, sociable and fun.


I have a specific interest in working with seniors and those who suffer from Osteoporosis, CFS, ME, Fibromyalgia, low back pain and the long term effects of a stroke.

I have undertaken further training in these areas so I can understand better the needs of my clients and therefore offer appropriate classes.
