about me: dawne likhodedova
I'm a pilates teacher, studio owner, world traveller and curious student of life. It makes me happy to help people move better and feel great. I teach pilates because it works.
You can usually find me at my new studio in Surrey (opening 30 July 2018!) or by appointment in London. My students are celebrities, high-level athletes, fellow teachers and advanced pilates practitioners, as well as those who consider themselves just normal people wanting to improve their fitness with pilates or strengthen post injury.
I have presented teacher training courses and workshops internationally and have been invited to studios around the world to help them develop their own in-house training programmes and protocols.
For a bit more of a formal recent-history of my pilates life, in addition to opening my studio in central London (2012), I was Faculty with Balanced Body (2014-2018) and Co-Chaired the Pilates Method Alliance UK Chapter at its inception (2014-2015).
My background includes both classical and contemporary styles of pilates. I have been very fortunate to have worked with many amazing teachers, coaches and mentors throughout a lifetime of sport and dance who have all shaped my style of teaching. I have studied extensively with Mejo Wiggin, who continues to influence my approach to classical pilates.
In addition to pilates, as an ex-professional dancer and athlete, how we make and commit to healthy lifestyles are topics of interest for me and am currently completing training as a health and wellness coach.
My own pilates practice takes me into studios all around the world to learn more about how I move and how to get the most out of the method for me. I hope my teaching helps you do the same.
