I'm Caroline Hunt, the founder of Principal Pilates. I'm a Pilates Instructor (Modern Pilates CYQ Level 3) based in South Oxfordshire (Didcot, East Hagbourne and Milton). I trained in 2011 having attended Pilates classes for four years.
Not long after starting teaching Pilates, I began to seek out additional ways to enable clients to become more mobile before working on increasing their stability. I feel many of our bodies are partially ‘stuck’ in patterns of unnecessary tension. In my enquiry, I have followed several different fascial self-release techniques with clients. In September 2021 I qualified as a Moving Fascia® Instructor and am very pleased to be able to use this fantastic repertoire of releases.
In my own experience, as a keen rider and swimmer, I can see how both fascial release techniques and Pilates make a profound difference to our awareness and our movement.
My previous working background is as a scientist working in public health research in the UK and overseas for many years. Because of this, I'm interested in the evidence around exercise and health, as well as being a hands-on instructor.
