Sam White

Sam founded her East London Pilates business (formerly My Local Pilates) in 2013, after training and certifying with Body Control Pilates as a Level 3 and Level 4 Instructor.

Despite being active, years working as an office number-cruncher resulted in chronic neck and shoulder pain. Pilates very quickly provided relief, and reignited Sam’s passion in learning about the human body (she studied Biochemistry at Uni, so lots of Physiology/Sports Science). Re-training as a Pilates teacher was a natural choice for this office worker who couldn’t sit still!  As a now keen cyclist, runner, swimmer (and wannabe Trapeze artist!), she has a particular interest in the application and relevance of Pilates to sports enthusiasts. In 2019, Sam trained as a Personal Trainer, eager to bring the benefits of weight training to her clients.

Sam now teaches Pilates Mat and Studio Equipment (Reformer/Cadillac/Chair/Barrel) from Beginner to Advanced levels. She holds Advanced Level 4 Low Back Pain, and Level 3 Personal Trainer certification, to include Kettlebell and Suspension Training.
