Helen Whitaker, the founder of Pilates in Sevenoaks, started teaching Pilates classes in local community halls and venues in 2008, after relocating from London. Since then, she has grown and developed the business, with a wider offering of community mat classes, fitness and studio reformer classes.

Her first reformer studio opened in Sevenoaks town centre in 2016, to compliment the community mat and fitness offering and to provide more accessible Pilates tuition to a wider population, promoting the unique benefits the Pilates reformer has to offer.

The studio has now grown and relocated to larger premises, and with this new space comes more variety. Apparatus now incorporates combo chairs and arcs, as well as Pilates small conditioning props. Group classes take place in Studio 1.

In the same building, Studio 2 accommodates individuals and duos for private tuition, training and rehabilitation. A limited number of exclusive mat classes in the Community run from Chevening Church Hall, Chipstead.


Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. It is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.
