I can help you change the way you look, the way you feel and the way you move


Hello, I'm Monica Dare and I help people become stronger, taller and more flexible.

I'm an experienced Pilates teacher and practitioner in Alexander Technique and Hanna Somatic Movement. I combine these three movement disciplines to help people reshape, rebalance and realign their bodies. You will look longer and leaner with a hidden strength.

Join a class, come to a workshop, or book a one-to-one session. You won't regret it.



Pilates offers both mental and physical training - it is a mind and body work out.

hanna somatics

Staveley Classes Moving to Fellside

Our regular Pilates classes held at Staveley are now at Fellside in Kendal. This effects the following classes:

Wednesday mornings: 9.30 (levels 1&2)

Thursday mornings: 9.30 (intermediate level)

All Castle Street classes remain the same.

All prices remain the same.

Reformer-based 1-2-1 sessions are now available

I’m excited to announce that the reformer is back! I can now offer 1-2-1 sessions using a C2Pro reformer. Reformer work offers greater flexibility and builds strength more quickly than mat work alone.
