Along with my commitment to the fitness I also like to get out and about on my horses, go pheasant shooting or beating and relaxing with my husband.

AJ

AJI started teaching at the age of 21 years old, when the fitness industry was a very different place from that of today. I had a passion for dancing all my life and similarly aerobics/fitness. It was this combination, of dance and workout orientated classes, which were to be the foundation and inspiration of my freestyle teaching. I teach a blend of Lyengar and Ashtanga yoga. I link together asanas to form a flow of movements which I can easily modify to suit all abilities.

HK is a comprehensive therapy that uses muscle testing to identify, locate and remove blocks within our energy system that stop us from moving forward on our chosen path in life. With each decision in our day the choices move us onto our next step, but due to everyday stress, illness, shocks (minor or major) our body can forget to file our everyday experiences correctly. Then next time we come across a similar experience our body checks what happened last time and can either build upon a good experience or a bad one!

This sounds very simple and in truth it is that simple, that is why we sometimes don’t have an answer for why we feel down, unwell or just not motivated.

Pilatescarolina

I’m a Pilates Instructor (Modern Pilates CYQ Level 3). I trained in 2011 having attended Pilates classes for four years. I came to Pilates myself via physiotherapy due to problems I experienced in pregnancy. So from my own experience I’m a firm believer in the rehabilitative qualities of Pilates, bringing increased stability, mobility and strength back to the body.

My 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. I’m a keen squash player and through this I see that Pilates also has a role in enhancing sporting performance through fitness training around core stability, motor skills, coordination and balance, amongst other benefits.

The classes I teach are small (ten people maximum). This means that every client gets individual attention each time. My classes are designed to be safe and effective as well as being fresh, interesting and varied. I also offer 1:1 Pilates sessions.

Nicole Parsons

Nicole Parsons Presentations

I come from a line of crazy South Africans. My Granddad is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest person to do the highest bungee jump at the age of 96!
Being born and brought up in the UK my parents got me off to a good start. They encouraged my sister and I to try a wide variety of sports, to see which we enjoyed the most. After having a go at gymnastics, swimming, athletics, canoeing, trampolining, dancing, horse riding and badminton I chose the athletics route and competed up to national level in 1500m, Cross Country and Race Walking, winning the English Schools, Nationals and AAA Championships in Race Walking age sixteen.I have always had a fascination with the human body and I knew that I wanted to work with sports people. A degree in Sport Rehabilitation and Sport Science Degree soon followed. I graduated in 1998 and got straight out to work. Knowing that I wanted to treat my clients holistically led me to explore the inextricable link between the body, the mind and nutrition. The tools I added to my box along the way were a Functional Biomechanics Diploma, Sports Massage, Kinesiology, Reiki, NLP, ITEC in Nutrition and Raw Food Chefing.In 2003 I was working with a forward thinking Osteopath who introduced me to Egoscue. At university I had fallen into sporadic training and had started to suffer knee pain. After my first Egoscue session I felt an immediate improvement in my symptoms and change in my body. However what struck me most was the overwhelming feeling that there was an inherent simplicity and basic truth in this method. I decided to become an Egoscue Therapist. As soon as I started to apply this approach with my clients their results and their adherence improved quite radically.Practically no one in the UK knew what Egoscue was, so education was the key. I wanted to get the message out there so I started delivering talks wherever I could and built a busy thriving practice getting my clients out of pain.

Total Body Conditioning is in the grounds of Millbrook House which has been in the Glazebrook family since 1963. Millbrook House is a grade II listed property. Part of the main house is thought to date back to the 16th century with many 18th, 19th and 20th century alterations. There is a brick on the back of the house dated 1791. It was once a

family

farmhouse with racing stables. It used to be called The Firs, possibly because of the tall fir trees on the south side of the front garden. It was certainly still called The Firs in the 1920s but why the name was changed, and when, is unknown. From 1954 until 2003 it was a boys’ boarding school.Since closing the school in 2003 many changes have taken place. Millbrook House itself has become a family home. The classrooms and staff accommodation behind the house have been converted to flats and let to tenants. The school gym is now Total Body Conditioning. The Citadine Apartments were dormitories, classrooms and staff accommodation. The alterations to convert the building to the seven apartments were completed in June 2007. Three more apartments are planned in the near future.

Within the grounds of Millbrook House we also have nine one and two bedroom flats which are let on assured shorthold agreements.
