SEA BREEZE PILATES

TEACHERS

BRIGITTE WRENN

Brig is incredibly knowledgable of all things health and fitness with over 30 years of experience in the industry. Her sessions are dynamic, very technical with almost forensic detail yet Brig still manages to be entirely approachable and friendly.

As well as a director at Sea Breeze Pilates, Brig also nurtures the instructors of the future as Merrithew® Lead Instructor Trainer delivering the STOTT PILATES method. 

When she’s not in the studio, she spends her time with Alfie the wonder horse riding through the beautiful countryside of East Sussex.

PETE GIBSON

Working in the health & fitness industry for over 22 years, and counting, Pete has seen it all. From a group exercise teacher, personal trainer, national presenter and tutor before setting up the highly successful Bamboo Fitness in Crystal Palace, London. 

Pete’s approach to teaching has a unique quality that is dynamic, athletic, professional, super clear and precise yet incredibly good fun.  

His memory for the individual goals or preferences of each member of his class is as impressive as his choice of music to suit the right mood for each class.  

Off duty he’s a fan of stylish scooters, good company and seaside living.

Max Bower

Max has enjoyed a long and varied career in the health and fitness industry, having been involved in training groups and individuals since the late 1990’s.
 
Over that time, he has worked with a wide and diverse range of people, from triathletes to cardiac rehabilitation patients, so understands well that the most successful training programmes are those with the participants’ individual needs at the centre.
 
A keen cyclist and runner, he has been taking part in cycle sportives and triathlons for many years. He worked as a consultant to Triathlon England on their GO TRI project after the 2012 Olympics, developing and delivering a training programme aimed at broadening participation in the sport.
 
STOTT Pilates trained, Max enjoys both teaching and participating in the form, and regards the practice of Pilates as a fundamental foundation of fitness for anyone, whether training for a sport, or simply for a healthy body fit for day-to-day life.

Emily Bridger

Emily’s reformer pilates journey began at Sea Breeze Pilates, when the studio opened in September 2022.
 
From her first class, she was fully invested into everything Reformer Pilates has to offer, not just physically, but mentally too. Having gone from a not so sporty child, to managing chronic fatigue syndrome as a teen, she has learnt with time how important moving the body is, and how much it can improve every aspect of life. 
 
Encouraged by the studio owners, she decided to take her teacher training in summer 2023, taught by expert trainers, Brigitte Wrenn and Charlotte Albion.
 
Having recent memory of being a beginner, Emily can relate to feeling nervous to start, but she’s here to welcome and cheer you on as you take your first step! 
 
As a Hastings native, she’s thrilled that reformer pilates has now come to our town, and she’s dedicated to becoming the very best teacher she can be. In her free time, you’ll find Emily with her nose in a book, spending time by the sea, or experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.
 
Enthusiastic, encouraging, and sometimes funny, she can’t wait to welcome you to class.

Misha Buchkowsky

Misha originally hails from the west coast of Canada, having a background in competitive swimming and a keen interest in all things fitness related.
 
Having come across Reformer Pilates, she has first hand experience of the rehabilitative & strengthening benefits it brings, particularly for those who have desk jobs!
 
Misha has fallen in love with Reformer Pilates and the community, so much so she has completed the Stott Pilates Reformer training course to become a fully fledged reformer instructor at Seabreeze studios!
 
When she isn’t practicing, teaching, or working at her desk (!), she can be seen to be walking one, if not all, of her many dogs.

All the classes are fun, challenging and totally different. I love the variety and the friendly feel of the studio. I felt an improvement in my strength, flexibility and energy levels after a couple of sessions

Sian Emerson

 

The best pilates teachers you'll ever find. All amazing with brilliant classes. Something for everyone and very welcoming and you'll always come away smiling.

Sally Stimpson

 

A great studio, achieving a great balance between professionalism and a friendly atmosphere. The facilities are top quality. They have a great range of classes and the training team are as good as they come. Doing Pilates has worked wonders for back issues I have suffered with for years.

Terry Thomas

 

It feels like I'm doing Pilates properly for the first time in years. Getting stronger with each session. Brig and Pete are the best teachers I ever had. Highly recommended.
