The Core Benefit
Balanced Life

A morale boosting series of exercises in small sessions that will energise you and leave you feeling revitalised and ready to get on with your day.

Welcome to The Core Benefit!

If you have experienced any of the following symptoms, the Core Benefit could be just what you  need:

  • Do you pee yourself without warning?
  • Do you have to buy panty liners to do an exercise class?
  • Do you feel like you are ‘falling out’ of yourself?
  • Are you doing exercise that is causing your tummy to pooch/dome/feel bigger?
  • Does your back hurt when you are carrying out daily activities?
Te Core benefit incorporates the MuTu System™ – the world’s leading postpartum programme. It is a medically-endorsed, tried and tested solution for ‘Mummy Tummy’: diastasis recti, pelvic floor weakness and a core that isn’t functional and strong as it should be.

Who is it for?

The Core Benefit is about educating postnatal and postmenopausal women to understand their pelvic floor and core health as a basis of wider function and fitness. 
Many women are living with issues such as leaking, bulging, back pain and lack of function when they really don’t have to. If you are fed up, despondent and worried that you have lost the person you once were – its ok! We are here to help, listen, nurture and guide you to look and feel better about yourself.
It starts with YOU and finishes with you being the best you can be. The cavalry has arrived and there’s no more need to feel alone wondering who to turn to.

Our Promise

We want you to feel:
  • Happy
  • Glowing
  • Revitalised
  • like you are YOU again!
With correct care and exercises, we can help you achieve all of this.
With your full participation and commitment, our instructors will work with you to get you back on track.
We can also provide help with appropriate adaptations or omissions to suit individual circumstances.



Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. We offer:

  • Pilates exercise
  • Matwork
  • Small equipment work
  • Apparatus exercises

“The environment is friendly and stimulating and everyone’s special concerns are taken into consideration.”

The Core Benefit

The Core Benefit is a complete body makeover for women who want to heal their core and pelvic floor to get strong, fit and truly body confident inside and out.

It is a MuTu® inspired lifestyle of healthy balanced eating, short easy to do exercises, and an encouragement to move to a healthier outlook.

“Thanks to the Pilates team I have better core strength and balance.”

Women's wellness specialist

Julia was the first person in the United Kingdom to qualify as a Women’s Wellness Specialist. The qualification combines the following Pilates-related subjects:

  • Pre- and postnatal specialist
  • Pink Ribbon Programme
  • Pilates applications for pelvic for health and dysfunction
  • Pilates for menopause
  • Pilates for bone health

“The great thing about the sessions is that each lesson is entirely different.”


Pilates for Buff Bones is a medically-endorsed workout that combines Pilates with bone strengthening and balance techniques to optimise the health and safety of your bones.

The workout follows a research-supported design of specifically sequenced exercises, making it an entire system of bone and joint health, rather than just a set of exercises. Toning your arms, hips, back and abs, it also improves posture, is adaptable to varying levels, and is even safe for those with osteoporosis. 

“I have been able to strengthen my back after major surgery and have not needed any treatment from my Chiropractor.”

Pink ribbon programme

The Pink Ribbon Programme has been created to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients.

This programme helps stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest and back muscles allowing the patient to improve range of motion and strength to those areas most affected by breast cancer surgery, treatment and reconstruction.

“Julia is extremely knowledgeable, the studio is refreshingly tranquil and I have every confidence that Julia can help me with my postnatal issues.””


‘Body Image Movement Global Ambassador’ is an internationally recognised crusade that recognises the importance of body diversity by encouraging people to be more accepting of who they are, to use positive language regarding their bodies and to prioritise health before beauty.

It’s about learning to change the way we feel so that we can fully embrace and love our bodies. 

“The pilates sessions have improved both my general fitness and feeling of well-being”
