Hello – thanks for visiting. I’ve been teaching all aspects of fitness for more than 25 years. Finally my enthusiasm and love of Pilates brought me to the South of France, La Garde Freinet to be precise where you’ll find me in my dedicated Pilates Studio in the heart of the village.

La Garde Freinet is an old authentic Provencal village in the heart of the Maures Mountains,  just 30 minutes from St Tropez.  The village is surrounded by magnificent and preserved nature that invites walking, hiking and cycling throughout the year.

Whether you’re a beginner or experienced with Pilates, you’ll enjoy a class without distraction in a calm and friendly atmosphere, with sessions from 30 or 55 minutes, either alone or with a friend.

You may be a student in training, or a qualified teacher looking to improve your skills, I’ve been training Pilates teachers worldwide for decades – I love to share my many years experience as well as my open minded approach to the Pilates System to help students and teachers achieve their best results.

I offer Pilates retreats for you and your friends at regular intervals during the year, if you have a particular date in mind just ask.  Or you may want some teacher training workshops for your continued education in addition to the set schedule I will always consider bespoke training to fit your exact needs.

Take a look around and if you don’t see what you want just let me know by email – info@thepilatesconsultant.com or call +33 06 73 99 37 85 we can work something out.

Nuala your instructions have given me a greater awareness about how my body responds to exercise. This has enabled me to heal previous damage and progress to avoid future injury. Thanks.

We find Nuala’s duet classes keep us fit and challenged. She is a skilled teacher. My Husband is new to Pilates, but I have been practicing for 12 years with a dance background, yet she can keep us both working to our individual potential. Thank you Nuala

Chère Nuala , nous nous connaissons depuis quatre ans déjà et grâce aux cours réguliers de Pilates que tu m’enseignes je peux dire que j’ai acquis une énergie et une force qui m’avaient abandonnés depuis longtemps. La récupération de ma fatigue est beaucoup plus rapide et je me sens maintenu dans un corps solide et droit . Je te remercie pour tes grandes qualités professionnelles et ta longue expérience qui me procurent un bien être dont je ne pourrai plus me passer.

Nuala is a wonderful teacher and also an amazing teacher-trainer, I feel privileged to be able to train with her. What I like most about working with Nuala is that she genuinely cares about making you the best possible Pilates coach you can be, she’s always open to any questions you might have and gives very helpful tips. Thank you for spreading the Pilates joy!
