Sophy Griffithssophy_griffiths began practising Pilates when she was training to be a trapeze artist in 1990. In 1993 she co-founded the acclaimed aerial-dance company Momentary Fusion.
The company performed on film and TV and toured extensively all over the world from the Tate Modern to Europe to the Americas and beyond.

In 2001 Sophy trained to be a Pilates instructor with the Pilates Foundation and has been teaching ever since. As well as running weekend breaks she has run a variety of classes ranging from groups to one – to – ones, remedial, ante and postnatal Pilates. She opened her own Transverse Studio in London in November 2003; created as an intimate space for four and taught at the Telegraph Group Ltd for two years before she re-located to Frome, Somerset with her toddler and husband.

Sophy is passionate about Pilates; particularly the way it makes people aware of unhelpful postural patterns. She focuses closely on the breath, always ascertaining clients’ specific conditions and needs, ensuring the classes are safe, unique and therefore more individually beneficial.

Her background as a physical performer has deeply influenced her understanding of the body and its anatomy. Similarly, her yoga and meditation practise underpins the importance she places on the flow of the breath.
