HIP Pilates
High Intensity Power Pilates at Studio 21 Yarm



Body Control Pilates Teacher

MA Contemporary Dance and Film

Most of you will have met Rhiannon in Pilates or spoken to her at Studio 21, she’s been a HUGE help to me, and to the studio in her own right, since she started teaching here in 2015.

Before meeting Rhiannon, I was at the stage where I needed another Pilates teacher and was debating advertising for one, when I received a telephone call from Rhiannon to say she was moving back to the area after uni and was looking for teaching opportunities. Strange co-incidence or meant to be?!

Rhiannon also trained in London with Body Control Pilates, she’s dancer at heart, you can see it in the way she moves and the way she holds herself in class, her timing in the barre and HIPP classes is on pointe!

Starting with ballet aged 5, Rhiannon worked her way up through the Royal Academy of Dance exams and always wanted to be a ballet dancer, until she tried, and fell in love with contemporary dance. As a dancer, Pilates was part of her daily life, a way to keep joints mobile and healthy under heavy training. It was Pilates that she ended up teaching full-time instead of dance!

Rhiannon’s special interests lie in the matwork sequences and working with young people, she runs the junior Pilates section at Studio 21, we hold classes for 3 age groups, 3-5 years, 6-10 years and 11-16 years. Outside of the studio, Rhiannon runs RYDC (Rhiactions Youth Dance Company), of which Studio 21 is a sponsor. So if you know any young people who may be interested, either in dance or Pilates, send them her way!

Rhiannon says,

Dance and movement are my passions, I’ve been a teacher since I was 15 years old, and I love passing on my knowledge of movement and the body, so much so, some of you may have had a mini lecture off me, sorry, just don’t get me started lol! I really enjoy studying how different people move and I get very excited when I can get everyone moving at the same time (it’s the choreographer in me!)’.

You’ll find Rhiannon teaching 121’s and classes at the studio throughout the week and you can contact her on Rhiannon@studio21yarm.co.uk

SEE YOU ON THE MAT. Vicky & Rhiannon

Yoga Alliance Affiliate – Sports Yoga Teacher

Vicky Rees, Studio 21 Yarm Pilates and Yoga

Hello, I teach Pilates at Studio 21 as well as managing the day to day running of the business, I launched the studio over 7 years ago! If you’re interested, read on and I’ll tell you a bit about me and how it all started…..


I trained in London with Body Control Pilates in 2008 and knew straight away that I’d like my own studio. I was working full time for the North York Moors National Park in education and outreach, and as my fixed term contract was coming to an end I decided to take the plunge into self-employment. I finished full-time work in the April and opened the studio in September, it was the best decision I ever made, it’s been challenging at times but I’ve always felt lucky to be here, and to share my love of Pilates and staying active with everyone.


Growing up I loved sport, especially netball, I still play for Grangetown Netball Club, I joined when I was 13 and we currently play against the top 20 clubs in the country in the National Clubs League. It’s an understatement to say how much Pilates, Yoga and my knowledge of the body has allowed me to have such a long playing career.


My typical week of training is: x3 Olympic weights sessions, x1 netball specific strength & conditioning session, x1 netball training session, x1-2 netball matches. It’s full on but I love it. I fit in Pilates, Yoga, stretching and foam rolling most days in short bursts, I get to classes when I can but I’d like to do more, maybe that will be my New Year’s Resolution! Which is ironic for a Pilates teacher!


My interest in sport has led me to work with many amateur and professional athletes, for the past 4 years I’ve taught 4 sessions a week at Middlesbrough Football Club, they have a good set up at the training ground and they are really onboard with using Pilates and Yoga as a tool for keeping players supple and fit and to help with rehab.


For me, Pilates and Yoga is the relationship built between the body and the mind, it’s moving with an awareness of your body, your breath, how it feels physically and mentally. I believe in teaching natural, functional movement, and in helping people to regain this where it’s been lost and to show people how to maintain it when they have it.


You’ll find me teaching 121’s and classes at the studio on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, and I’m only ever a phone call or email away if you need help with booking or have any queries.

Wellness Wednesday’s

Wellness Wednesday!

My healthy granola recipe.

This is so easy to make, just mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl to coat, it’ll help if the coconut oil is room temperature. Spread on a baking sheet and cook for about 10 minutes at 120 until slightly golden. You can add or take away some of the ingredients depending on personal preference.
I’m forever telling people about this recipe (sorry if I’ve already gone on about it to you!) but it’s so easy, quick and healthy. This keeps me going for about a week, I keep it in an old tea tin. It’s my go to snack when I’m on the run, I normally have 2 tablespoons with a scoop of full fat greek yoghurt, a banana and if I’m feeling like it a small spoonful of peanut butter.
Most shop bought granolas are classified as ‘high sugar’ with more than 12.5g per 100g, much of which is added to make it taster better and then with honey on top of that, they end up with an even higher sugar content!
You can buy all of the ingredients in this healthy granola in bulk and keep them stored until you run out and make your next batch.
Let me know how you get on with it! Vicky 🙂

Open Studio – Self Practice in Yarm

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Join us in August for self practice at the studio

Open Studios in Yarm

Open Studios in Yarm

We have a beautiful studio space on Yarm High Street for Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and Meditation and we want to share it with you.

I know it can be hard to incorporate your own regular practice at home with all the distractions you might find there, which is why I’ve set aside these 2 hours to create a space for you to continue or reignite your own practice. We have the time, the space and the equipment and all we need is you!

There’s no charge to come along and the sessions are self-led. There will be at least one teacher available if you have any burning questions about your practice or to give advice whenever it’s needed. The sessions will be kept small to allow a quiet space for those who want it.

You don’t need to bring a programme to work on, you might freestyle, you might stretch or just sit on a mat and meditate. There’s no agenda, you can stay as long or as little as you like, even if you don’t know any Pilates or Yoga, come along and move without any judgement.

For those of you who would like to come armed with a programme, we’ll be offering discounted 121’s with Rhiannon during the month of August and everyone will come away with their own personal programme to work on. 121’s with Rhiannon will have 20% off during August and will be £28. Duo’s (with a friend/partner) will also have 20% off during August and will be £40 (between both of you). Use the code 20%RHIANNON at the checkout or get in touch to enquire about availability.

Although the session is free, there will be a donation jar in the studio raising money for ‘The Cinnamon Trust, The National Charity for the elderly, the terminally ill and their pets’, a £1 donation per person is optional.

The Cinnamon Trust is a charity that’s very close to my heart, I’ve been registered as a volunteer with them for around 8 years, if you like dogs and walking its well worth getting involved. Not long after registering I was contacted by The Cinnamon Trust to see if I could walk Blondie for an 86 year old lady whose husband had passed away and needed extra help. Blondie was a lively 6 year old Labrador, I introduced her to my 6 month old lab and they became great friends, he would follow her everywhere and she really looked after him. My latest walking buddies are Timmy, a 7 year old Shihtzu and Rosie, an 11 year old Pomeranian.

If you would like to know more about the Cinnamon Trust click here

We’ll be running the open studio sessions every Thursday 2:30-4:30pm in August, you can book here.   It’s FREE! 🙂

Teachers and students all welcome!
