Physiotherapist, Pilates Instructor
Education: MSc(PT), AN - IMS (dry needling), STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor, ConnectTherapy™ Series Graduate
Jonathan qualified as a physiotherapist in 2018 with an MSc. from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen Scotland. He is a STOTT PILATES® certified instructor in matwork and reformer pilates and has been leading both clinical and fitness-focused pilates classes since 2017. He has served as the lead physiotherapist for a Scottish Rugby National League side and comes to physiotherapy following a 15 year career as a professional dancer. Jonathan uses a practical, hands-on approach to rehabilitation that combines his training in manual therapy with his extensive experience in movement and pilates. He believes that ConnectTherapy™ and the Thoracic Ring Approach™ open unique and powerful opportunities for movement and rehabilitation and incorporates their principles into his assessment and treatment as both a physiotherapist and pilates instructor.
“The body and its movements have been my interest and life for more than twenty years now. It began with my discovery of dance at university, which led to a 15 year career as a professional dancer and many adventures touring and performing around the world. As I transitioned away from the stage, I wanted to find a career that would allow me to help others while drawing on my understanding of how the body moves. Physiotherapy and Pilates were a perfect fit, and I am thrilled by the daily challenges or positive outcomes it provides. Whether recovering from injury, or looking to improve your performance, I would be happy to help you achieve your goals.”
Life outside work:
Jonathan is always looking for a new adventure and that now includes raising twin boys. He’s passionate about gardening, disc golf, hiking, and camping. Jonathan’s partner is a dancer and choreographer, so free time is often spent supporting her company, Éowyn Emerald & Dancers, and prepping for the next tour or performances.
