Owner, Devorah Al-Irimi originally from London, left her career in marketing to pursue her passion for teaching, health and people. Her own experiences of suffering from back pain lead her to Pilates, and nutrition. After seeing the benefits in her health and recovery Devorah was motivated to study complementary hands-on techniques such as: massage therapy and structural osteopathy. She believes that the combination of these therapies allows for balance, mindful movement and a positive lifestyle. She aims to inspire and challenge her clients while having fun. Devorah offers MAT pilates classes with rollers and balls as well as reformer classes.
“At SimplybePilates I try to bring my character to class. My aim is to create a health studio where people are greeted by name, the studio space is clean, safe and beautiful. The atmosphere is friendly. I love that my clients hang around after class and chat or pop out for a drink together. I encourage this and often organise Pilates social nights, no obligation to attend but we always get a great turnout. I also set up groups for pregnancy women so that they can share experiences and information, as many are without the support network of their families and dealing with everything in a foreign language.”
