Jean Duggleby talks to Gerri Ellis, Pilates Teacher at The Mill, Walthamstow

During what people are beginning to call "peacetime", when there are no Covis restrictions, Gerri Ellis teaches Pilates to a number of groups at The Mill Community Centre on Coppermill Lane, E17 7HA. She can also offer individual sessions to people with specific needs or physical limitations, of whom Jean is one.

Here she chats about what Pilates is and how it has developed from the invention of Joseph Hubertus Pilates (1883 1967), a German physical trainer, and what it has to offer to everybody, young or old, able-bodied or not.
