Welcome to Vanilla Studio


Anna is retiring on the 20 July 2019. We would like to thank you all for your support over the years.


The studio offers private, semi-private and group 'modified' Pilates instruction.

The original Pilates method, which was devised by Joseph Pilates for the rehabilitation of interned hospital patients, has been modified by physiotherapists in the light of current research, to produce an exercise programme to suit clients who have or have had, lower back or neck problems and or weak abdominal muscles.

The studio has been run by Anna Sheppard, a certified Pilates Instructor, since 2002. Anna offers instruction on specialist Pilates apparatus and in matwork to give each client an exercise programme designed to address their particular needs.

NICE guideline NG59 emphasises the importance of exercise. It suggests that both manual therapy (spinal manipulation, mobilisation or soft tissue techniques such as massage) and, or psychological therapies using a cognitive behavioural approach, for managing low back pain with or without sciatica, should be undertaken only as part of a treatment package including exercise.
