Who Runs Planet Pilates?



Hi! I’m Jenny James…

I have always had an interest in sport and exercise and spent my early years enjoying Outdoor activities with my Outdoor loving family! I then went to achieve a BSc in Sports Science from Greenwich University. decided to train as a Pilates Instructor in 2009 after developing an interest in rehabilitation through exercise.

Previously I developed and implemented an exercise on referral scheme which included a Moving with Stroke project for Charity Ability Bow now based in Tower Hamlets.

I completed a two year equipment Pilates course in 2018 with Evolve movement. This course really developed my movement Therapy skills.

I am now a Mother to 6 year old Bella.  I found the transition to motherhood a tough and amazing journey. I suffered with a Diastasis Recti (a connective tissue tear) in the lower abdomen 20 months after giving birth. I fully rehabilitated from this injury.

I am currently developing my training as a Movement Therapist. I completed a Movement Ease course with Joanne Elphinston a renown International Physiotherapist. i use a lot of her movement techniques within my teaching. Most recently I completed Moving Fascia course with Ana Barretxeguren at Evolve Movement.

I have an holistic approach to developing a Pilates Plan with a client. I treat everyone as an individual and will develop a specific and goal orientated plan for you to follow at a pace that you are happy with.
