Helping You to Live a Happy and Healthy Life



All About Pilates Studio is based in the North East of England offering Pilates classes in North Yorkshire, Teesside and County Durham.  Smaller groups (up to three people) and private 1-2-1 sessions are held in the All About Pilates Studio just outside Yarm.  Classes are for everyone regardless of fitness level and the number of people in the group sessions is limited to ensure you receive personal attention.  You will learn good movement skills step by step, which will ultimately help you to improve your:

  • Core strength & muscle tone

  • Posture & alignment

  • Flexibility

  • Joint, ligament & spinal mobility

  • Strength & balance

  • Stress & tension levels

Classes are taught by Joanna Gibson, a Level 3 Mat Body Control Pilates Certified Instructor and a member of Body Control Pilates, a world-leading education provider for Pilates teaching.  In addition to the Level 3 qualification, Joanna has attended the following specialist Body Control courses:


  • Pilates for Equestrians

  • Pilates using the ball and toning circle

  • Pilates for Pregnancy (Active IQ Level 3 Award in Designing Pre- and Postnatal Pilates programmes with 98% in both papers)

  • Pilates for the Older Person (Active IQ Level 3 qualification in Physical Activity and Health Considerations for the Older Client)

  • Intermediate matwork (covering the classical mat repertoire)

  • Pilates for Performance (creating Pilates programmes specifically for people wanting to develop performance-based objectives such as running, cycling and dance)

  • Precision of Movement

  • Pilates Adaptations

  • Pilates Movement

  • Level 4 - Joanna is currently studying for her Level 4 qualification, which is the highest level of Pilates qualification in the health and fitness industry.  


Joanna has always had an interest in fitness and exercise having studied ballet from an early age and then focusing her attention onto horses, a hobby which she still loves today.  She has been practising Pilates for over 15 years, taking it up while pregnant with her son and then continued to attend classes to manage a lower back problem derived from carrying around a small child!  She soon became addicted to Pilates and the freedom it brought her from being pain-free.  On approaching a milestone birthday, Joanna decided to make a career change from years of office-based work to train as a Pilates teacher so she could do what she loved for a living and share her passion with others.
