Thushara has been practising pilates for over ten years now and trained to be a teacher having seen the muscle tone and postural benefits of pilates in her own body. Thushara left a successful 20 year career in Publishing to train with Body, Arts & Science International, renowned for their comprehensive teacher training course and trained for two years before graduating to teach mat and machine pilates across many South West London studios and privately under the Pilates by Thushara brand. And now in her own boutique studio space, including all original and specialist Pilates machines - Pilates by Thushara, just off the Northcote Road near Clapham Junction. The most enjoyable part of teaching for her is seeing results in her clients.

She has trained clients with the following injuries/special demographics: pregnant and post birth, amputees, brachial plexus, scoliosis, hip replacements, knee replacements/injuries, mature clients, teenagers, shoulder injuries, plantar fascitis, sciatica, diastasis recti, general fitness, car crash victims, weight loss enhancement, bike ride and golf tournament entrants.

Pilates exercise programmes are formulated to exercise all muscle groups in the body, ensuring a comprehensive, full body workout.

  • “In the 12 months since I started classes with Thushara my shape has improved (I now have a waist despite not giving up cake), I'm stronger and more flexible , I can plank and also hit a golf ball 30 yards further. All thanks to classes with Thushara, a great teacher who keeps me motivated and challenged! Thanks Thushara,”

  • “I’ve been doing pilates twice a week with Thushara for around 18 months. I have attended other reformer and studio classes in the past and can honestly say that she is my favourite teacher. Not only is she friendly and smiley, she is attentive, encouraging and hands on. She knows when to push you further once you are ready to be challenged more. You don’t need to tell her - she can see! She can also see if you are not holding your muscles in through layers of clothes! She clearly understands her area of expertise and her passion shows. I have definitely seen a change to my body shape, muscle tone, strength and overall well-being. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”

She is an incredibly focussed, friendly and knowledgable teacher who makes each lesson a bespoke and tailored experience. I look forward to my classes with her immensely. Thushara puts me at ease whilst driving me to achieve great results. I have noticed such a difference in my well-being and strength. She makes Pilates the highlight of the week!”

  • "Following a serious car crash I started taking lessons with Thushara in Nov '14 and the difference she has made to my all round fitness has been astounding. My posture and flexibility have been improved immeasurably and I highly recommend Thushara's classes."

  • “I am lucky enough to have had Thushara as my Pilates Instructor since my very first reformer class. Above all else she gets results. She knows just how to work with each of her clients to make sure they get the best out of each and every session, whether it’s a one on one or a group class. So I always know a class with her can do me nothing but good! Apart from being an excellent instructor she is also so much fun. And that’s not always a given when it comes to working with someone who is focused on helping you achieve a stronger body and a better level of fitness. A rare and extremely valuable combination”
