Helen Ball – Pilates Instructor

Ladan Mofakham
Helen trained professionally as a dancer and circus performer. She discovered her love of Pilates whilst touring the world as an Aerial acrobat performing with Cirque Du Soleil. Pilates became part of everyday life, key to ensuring her body could keep up with the physical demands of circus life.

After retiring from Cirque Du Soleil Helen completed her Stott Pilates qualifications and began her career in teaching. She now works with a broad range of clients, and particularly enjoys using her knowledge of high level performance to help clients increase their athletic potential.

Two years ago, at the peak of fitness, Helen suffered a rare allergic reaction which resulted in heart failure and critical surgery. Now her heart has recovered she continues to use Pilates to rehabilitate her body back to athletic fitness.

Helen’s experience as a professional acrobat, along with her own rehabilitation and keen interest in physiology, strongly influence her approach to Pilates instruction. Her goal is to help people get the most out of their body, whether training as an athlete, rehabilitating from injury or wishing to improve their overall physical wellbeing. She feels everyone should be as mobile and pain free and their body can be.
