Discover wisdom through movement


Welcome to Movement Pilates, part of Movement & the Moon.

My name is Íse, born dancing and working in the events industry. I always loved movement and particularly how Pilates helped my mental and physical wellbeing when working long and stressful hours on major events. I longed to train in teaching Pilates and the call grew louder when I discovered the work of Fletcher Pilates. I trained as a teacher and founded Movement Pilates with the dream of sharing the mind and body benefits Pilates brought me, with others. Pilates helps to allow the body to heal, rebalance and is a great support discipline to any sport.

There is so much healing that comes from Pilates, as I have experienced myself, and now I am inspired to share this work with others.

As I am currently working on a major event, I am not teaching class. However please check out my YouTube channel for 10 – 30 min Pilates classes to enjoy in your own time.

If you have any questions please drop me an email. I’d love to hear from you.

Benefits of Pilates


Find ease in your body, balance energy and release tension and stress. Pilates exercises support any lifestyle and are especially good for those who spend their working time at a desk. Our bodies are designed...


Develop movement and mobility in the spine, strengthen and stabilise your core. Pilates strengthens from the core, increasing longevity of our bodies. It’s the perfect partner exercise to any sport or movement discipline.


All classes are small, designed to allow complete focus on individual development needs. Private sessions are also available if you wish to focus on a specific area.

Love these pilates classes. Ise knows what she is talking about and listens to what you want to get out of the classes too. I felt stretched, strengthened and fabulous after my Movement pilates class. About to book in for my next one!

My private class with Ise was so inspiring and nourishing, she has an incredible way to cue the posture and allow my body to sink in deeply.  Her way of communication and space holding was so healing and I have found a new love for Pilates. I can highly recommend working with her.

I saw some friends recommend Ise's pilates classes and so I enquired about attending evening classes. I am a mum of two and really wanted to be able to focus on some time for myself and my body in the evenings. Ise chatted with me to arrange a suitable time and gave me a wonderful 1:1 classes over zoom - she is very detailed and explains everything in an easy to follow manner. She watched my form closely and it really did not feel any different to attending a class in person. There was lots of opportunity to ask questions and Ise was very conscious to keep checking in on how my body was feeling. It was great to do it from my living room and no commute to the class! Thank you Ise, I will definitely continue with you!

Movement Pilates is part of Movement & the Moon, combining two elements close to my heart - Pilates and Astrology. I love to write and share my lessons learned as I worked on my personal development and finding joy when I was experiencing depression and anxiety.

How Pilates helped me

We all live a far too hectic lifestyle and in order to gain any balance and calm, we need to work with our body. Pilates helps to do just that, using exercises to bring us into our very core to stabilise and strengthen us for whatever lies ahead. So many of our aches and pains are our bodies trying to tell us to pay attention. Most of the time, we need to strengthen and stretch in order to release the pain that sticks around for so long.

I believe through movement, we can become balanced in ourselves and our bodies.

Joseph Pilates created this work so every body could feel freedom of movement. Pilates is not only a discipline in itself, it supports every other physical discipline, improving alignment, breathing and core strength. Pilates has many functions to it and has developed over the years through the incredible First Generation Teachers that studied under Joseph and Clara Pilates. One such teacher was Ron Fletcher who carried the Pilates work to the west coast of the USA in 1971. It is his discipline of Pilates that I study.

I created Movement Pilates to share the body wisdom I discovered through Pilates and the benefits it brought me, including:

  • Connecting with and learning to listen to the wisdom my body holds.
  • Strength and stability I never thought I could achieve before.
  • Respect and appreciation for the resilience of my mind and body.
  • Feeling calmer and more centred in my every day life.
  • More in command of my mind when faced with challenges.

Taking the Fletcher Pilates principles into my life has helped me to navigate challenging times and provides me with the health and vitality to allow my mind and body to experience life with less resistance than before. I am truly grateful for the freedom this work has given me to fully enjoy life.
