This is how we do it

Do you want to feel strong both physically and mentally?  To feel confident in yourself and what you present to the rest of the world?  And do you want to feel embraced and empowered by a community of people with like-minded goals?

Join the fun and workout face-to-face with Emily at a class near you or live via her Facebook group empowerednztribe in the comfort of your own home. Expect to be led through a total body, mat-based workout, all while you improve your core strength, posture and flexibility. We provide modifications to suit all fitness levels and body shapes, so no one gets left behind.

Pop Pilates is an upbeat workout, where you can expect to move to the beat of top-rated popular music while completing Pilates-inspired moves.  POP Pilates is a strength and flexibility workout and can be done in bare feet on nothing but a yoga mat. There’s absolutely no equipment needed (other than the mat), because all of the resistance work is done using your own bodyweight.



Pilates High Intense Interval Training, all done in 28 minutes.  Get the workout your body craves but in half the time!  Go from one cardio move to a Pilates move, using no equipment - all on your yoga mat.  PHIIT is the most effective way to lose fat and gain confidence while having fun! Modifications are provided for all levels of fitness so you get the most out of your workout.

The Em behind EMpowered

I want to help people move their bodies in safe and effective ways, fall in love with how it makes them feel; and mostly, fall in love with themselves again. My goal is to create a community of like-minded people, where they can turn to one another for support and inspiration: a community where they see how powerful, strong and brave they really are.

I have a chronic pain condition and my physio recommended that I try Pilates or yoga. I found Emily and I haven't looked back! I am well and truly addicted. I feel so strong and the benefits for my pain are fantastic, the fact there is zero impact and modifications means that I am able to build strength and challenge myself without any pain (except the muscles that haven't made an appearance in a few years!) I love how relatable Emily is, and the fact I can bring my children means I have no excuse not to workout!
