Founder. Mat and Reformer Pilates, Yoga, specialises in footwork and WRULDs injuries
Our centre based in the heart of South London, ‘The Hope Centre’ is really a one stop shop for all your Holistic needs. I teach a variety of classes such as Mat and Reformer Pilates and Yoga, specialising in footwork and WRULDs injuries. Having being diagnosed with Hypermobility, whilst also suffering from a work related injury, my own firsthand experience of chronic pain has evolved my teaching methods to focus more on rehabilitation work and ‘real life’ mental and physical health problems. I qualified in CBT for Chronic Pain while working side by side with physiotherapists at Camden Physiotherapy and receiving mentoring from leading Hypermobility consultants and specialists from St Johns & Elizabeths and The London Orthopaedic clinic. I am trilled to inform you our clients we work closely with these experts should a need for referrals arise, you are in the best hands! And so I began my mission to educate and empower others to transform their lives, just as I did. What started with Pilates classes, soon evolved to incorporate other beneficial treatments such as the Pain Clinic, Yoga, Massage, Cardio and the newly opened Beauty Therapy services (By appointment only).

I’ve had 2 back operations & nobody would have thought I would be able to do a marathon. Pilates with Mehret got me to a point where my core muscles were so strong I effectively had no pain at all when running and I have recently done my third marathon – Where is was trying to do a sub 3 hour marathon. Doing all my Pilates sessions with Mehret all throughout the 15 weeks marathon preparation not only kept my lower back pain free but improved my legs and glutes strength, flexibility and breathing which in turn helped my running overall. The result: NO injuries, 2.58 in the London Marathon. I am now a massive advocate of Pilates for runners. Gracias Mehret!!
Mehret was very knowledgeable and professional. I felt she really knows the body and exactly what areas I needed to strengthen. I felt very relaxed and confident in her treatment of me and encouraged that my frozen shoulder will improve. She was calm and pleasant and it was an enjoyable session. The equipment was really good. The Groupon price of £38 for five sessions was incredible, they are usually worth £30 each. She was so good though that I will carry on using her at the normal price of £30 a time when I’ve done my five Groupon sessions. The session was more specific to my needs, more thorough and more care was taken that I was doing the moves right, than any physiotherapy or osteophath session I’ve had, which would be £45-£60. And Hope Pilates is five minutes from my flat. I am very pleased.
Mehret’s enthusiasm and commitment to Pilates is impressive. Through the work I do with her, I have learnt huge amounts about my own body and how to keep it healthy. She knows exactly what level to take me to and I always feel that I have achieved something. She is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and the qualities that she brings to every session make Pilates a joy to do. She accepts all the difficulties people present with calm confidence, altering exercises for individuals as appropriate. No one is left to struggle, and most importantly, I feel safe in her hands. I would, with no hesitation, recommend Mehret’s classes to anyone looking to benefit from them in the same way as I have.
