Our studios are a real part of the Tonbridge community, with additional classes running alongside our full Pilates schedule. We want you to be able to have an all-round health experience at our studios, which is why we have additional classes available to boost general wellbeing. These are some of the teachers who regularly teach classes at our studios.

Summer stretch pass

June summer stretch

In June we are offering a June Summer Stretch Pass for £45 (£10 of each pass will be donated to the NHS Coronavirus Fund).

Due to the popularity of our Morning Stretch classes over the last couple of months, there will be a Morning Stretch class EVERY weekday in June starting from Tuesday 2nd June until Tuesday 30th June at 8.30am to 9.00am. That’s a total of 21 classes, which works out as £2.14 each class!

These classes are aimed at all levels and are a great way to wake up your body and start your day moving. For £45 you will have access to join as many classes as you like and £10 of each pass will be donated to the NHS Coronavirus Fund!  Email info@isminiphillips.com to find out how to join.

I have always been passionate about the holistic and empowering approach to patient care that Osteopathy offers.

After Graduating in 2011, I have worked as an associate Osteopath in practices in Selsdon, South Darenth, Shirley and in Tonbridge.

My experience in practice has afforded me the opportunity of treating and working with a wide variety of patients. From young babies to the elderly, sporting injuries through to those with ongoing problems, I have enjoyed looking at both short term relief, and long term maintenance solutions.

I have a particular interest in women’s health Osteopathy and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in this area in 2015. Women’s health Osteopathy is a growing and exciting field that allows a greater understanding of the various challenges faced by women’s bodies throughout their lives, and provides more specific techniques to allow Osteopaths to support women through these stages. As a mum of two myself, this has been extremely interesting on a personal level as well as professionally.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you at Ismini Phillips Studios.
