Leonie Gerken Schofield is a medal-winning mogul skier winning the Europa Cup twice, once in 2013 and once in 2017 with many medal winning awards in between.
She started skiing at the age of five but her career has been troubled with many injuries including two knee operations, a dislocated shoulder and most recently (in April) she broke one of her vertebrae and has been going through rehabilitation to get back to the skiing squad ever since.
Leonie came to me after suffering the spinal fracture and had spent 3 months in a back brace. With poor trunk stability, mild scoliosis as a result of the brace and a couple of months to get back up to speed, Pilates rehab work was the perfect choice.
Unlike other forms of rehabilitation exercise, reformer Pilates doesn’t require rest days in between, you can see the benefits of the work you put in in just a few weeks. The more work you put in the more you get out of it.
Leonie was a model client working hard in her sessions with me and doing all I required her to do outside the studio.
“No words can describe how great Millie is at her job! She is passionate and loves helping others!… Thanks to Millie I have gained so much in just a couple of weeks…I couldn’t be happy enough on discovering Pilates with Millie, it has been amazing and shown me all the positives from this injury! Thank you so much Millie!”
“Pilates is definitely the best physical fitness for any injury and and sport!”
I am so excited to be able to share with you this fantastic opportunity coming up in August. I have joined forces with Mike McKone and Marina Thomas of Sicily Active Holidays to bring you a week of not only relaxation, enjoyment of the the stunning views of Sicily that overlook the slopes of Mount Etna, yoga and mindfulness but Pilates with me as well.
This holiday will be from 25th August – 1st Septemeber
It’s only £1195 per person, and if you consider that that includes your fresh, local food & wine for the week, your luxury accommodation, daily Yoga, Pilates & Meditation, and on top of that use of the tennis courts and sauna, it’s really is a fantastic deal.
There is a maximum capacity of 16 people so it really will feel like a lovely, friendly, fun and relaxing get away.
Flights and transfers aren’t included, however, but we can arrange transfers for you upon request.
Massage and beauty treatments also available for that extra treat.
How many holidays can you go on and come back feeling nourished, toned, relaxed and fulfilled? All that expertly guided movement practice and exercise alongside the best Mediterranean food really is a treat for the body and soul.

I am so delighted to welcome Becky Belshaw to the Studio as a newly qualified Kettlercise Instructor, set to take my Friday morning 10am class. Becky is a real ray of sunshine in the Studio as a client and I am confident that you will all love having her lead you in her new role as an instructor.
I asked Becky to give us a little insight into what made her decide to take up this new role and what she hopes to bring to the Studio, and you, our clients.
‘I’ve been going to Millie’s Kettlercise classes at the studio for over 2 years now, they’re such a fun way to get/keep fit while toning up and strengthening the body. I always feel so at home in Millie’s classes and love her ethos of smaller group training.
My little girl started school last year and I found myself in a position where I had a little more time to focus on myself and what I actually wanted to do with my career. My passion for fitness had grown since having my daughter and I decided that perhaps this was the time to make the jump and pursue becoming a trainer myself.
Millie has such a passion for her job, her knowledge is incredible so you always feel in safe hands and she always pushes you hard to be your best. The groups are small so you are never overlooked and there are no overwhelming, crowded classes. Kettlercise is something I’ve really come to love and I look forward to every class. It’s my stress-relief and my happy place. The class formats regularly change so there’s never a chance to get bored. It works your whole body, and because it’s cardio it’s brilliant for weight loss and just a general happy buzz.
I am so excited to use my energy and love for Kettlercise to help other people to find their own confidence and happiness through fitness, making it as fun and energetic as possible. I’m all about feeling good and laughing while you’re looking after your body. Looking good is just a nice side effect if you keep up the hard work.
I can’t wait to see you in the Studio soon xx’
