My name is Jenny Glover and I run the 'Pilates Centre and Sports Injury Clinic' in Weymouth and also 'Weymouth Osteopathy - Avanti Therapy' and 'Mercury Dance Academy'. I first discovered pilates through my training as a ballerina at 'The Legat School of Russian Ballet' under the Vaganova method. It is linked closely to the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in Russia. Further more, Jenny won a scholarship to London Studio Centre and was presented 'The Tom Merrifield' award, by Wayne Sleep. I was subsequently awarded a scholarship to study and teach 'Body Control Pilates' at Pilates International Ltd in London in 1984, under Heather Sampson, which resulted in a two page spread in 'You' Sunday Magazine. I did further studies in Pilates under Alan Herdman (Pilates Guru).

 

I am a professionally trained level 3 Pilates instructor with over 33 years teaching experience in mat classes and professional pilates equipment eg reformers either group or 1:1 classes . I am a member of the Body Control Pilates Association (B.C.P.A) and adhere to their code of practice which governs teaching standards, class sizes, professional ethics and continuing education .I was one of the 1st instructors qualified to teach Pilates in the UK and was the 1st in Dorset to offer group and 1-1 reformer classes. I am also a fully qualified Osteopath having completed my masters degree at the British School of Osteopathy.

 

I am a qualified swedish massage therapist and sports massage therapist and am certified to practice pregnancy massage.
