Julia Atherton

Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor
Director | Physio Pilates Online

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1983 after being inspired by watching a game of wheelchair basketball.

The physical aspect of my job – combined with being a mum, really took its toll on my body. I turned to Pilates and became so enamoured with its ability to help with my posture, pain relief, and awareness of how I actually felt, that I trained up as an instructor and opened a studio.

I’ve had the good fortune in my career to work with everyone from elite athletes to the often self- proclaimed ‘exercise averse’. I build their confidence, I strengthen their bodies, and I take away their aches and pains.

I closed my studio in 2022 after 25 years there, I now run my classes online and love doing live events like the Foot and Ankle Show.
