Perry Ives

Pilates Teacher

I am a Body Control Pilates certified teacher, working at Ismini Phillips Studios. I love working with clients and planning out classes to make sure their goals are met; I am always honest, and I’m passionate about what I do. I work to develop myself as a teacher, and as I continue to grow and learn, so too do my clients.

I haven’t always been a Pilates teacher. I worked in the city as a currency trader for over 30 years, which really took its toll on my back and posture. I tried all sorts, but nothing cured the problem. When I began Pilates, the difference was almost immediate and I was hooked. Just like me, so many people are now discovering Pilates, which is great as it can do so much good for the body and mind. Even celebrities like novelist Martin Amis are getting involved – in an interview, he said: “I stopped groaning. When I get out of the car now, I don’t go arrggghhh.” And that’s all thanks to Pilates!

Having experienced the difference Pilates made to my own life, I decided to train as a teacher. I love that I have a job where I can really help other people, and it’s very rewarding to see clients progress. I make corrections during lessons and often, people feel the difference straight away. It’s great to be doing something I really believe in – it only took me 30 years to find it!

I am also a golf teacher, so outside of the studio you might find me playing a few rounds of golf – or perhaps enjoying a good meal with friends and family afterwards.

Marketing and Events & Guest Teacher

I am a guest teacher at Ismini Phillips Studios, and I am also responsible for the studio’s marketing and taking care of events.

I love my work at the studio and I enjoy seeing people develop physically, emotionally and mentally as they progress with their classes and activities. I really believe that movement can help with mental health and throughout my career, I have seen people becoming aware of those mental changes, as well as enjoying the physical benefits of activity.

When I’m not working and teaching at the studio, I am a professional dancer based in the UK and Germany. I have a BA degree in Classical Ballet and Contemporary Ballet. I continue to study, and I will receive an MSc in Psychology at the end of September 2019.

I am a naturally chatty and bubbly person, something that I always bring into my classes. I love the social element of working at Ismini Philips Studios, so if you see me around, let’s grab a coffee and have a chat!
