Emily Altneu is a Pilates teacher at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy. She has been teaching since 2009 after training in Musical Theatre. Emily has been practising Pilates for more than fifteen years. She views her approach to fitness as part regenerative and part preventive. Her Pilates practice is all about enjoying a long, happy and healthy, fit life.
Emily is qualified in teaching Reformer, Cadillac, Tower and Chair Pilates. She trained with Drummond Education (BASI) and JPilates (Jay Grimes). Emily continues her training with a master teacher from The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado – where they have a direct link to Romana Kryzanowska (who was Joseph Pilates’ protégé). She strikes a balance in her teaching of honouring the classical repertoire and teaching an evolved approach for the 21st century. She is also a qualified Pregnancy and Postnatal Pilates teacher.
Emily specialises in the following areas:
- Reformer Pilates
- Tower Pilates
- Pregnancy and Postnatal Pilates
- General Pilates
“I attend one of Emily’s general mat Pilates classes. I came late (62 years) to Pilates and I cannot thank her enough for her patient teaching and communication skills. I leave her classes feeling fluid and energised and never with soreness or stiffness.
I now have had a one-to-one Reformer session. Which although tough was a really enjoyable experience. It was as though my whole body had been massaged from the tips of my toes and fingers to the top of my head. It stretched and isolated muscles in every part of my body, again under the clear precise and friendly instruction from Emily.”
“I have found my confidence and skills have grown under Emily’s expert teaching and guidance. Emily is very articulate and patient at explaining each of the moves, ensuring that I have understood the background to each exercise. This benefits me enormously as under her tuition, I am doing each of the moves more accurately and consequently, really feel the benefits of the workout at end of each of our sessions.”
