Emily Altneu is a Pilates teacher at Yoga Mama Wellness. She has been teaching since 2009 after training in Musical Theatre. Emily has been participating in Pilates herself for over fifteen years. She views her approach to fitness as part regenerative and part preventive. Her Pilates practice is all about enjoying a long, happy and healthy, fit life.
Emily trained in Pilates under Cat Booker of Drummond Education, who adopts a classic Pilates approach for the 21st century. They use Rael Isacowitz and Karen Clippinger as their base with a nod to Pilates on Fifth. She gained her reformer Pilates training with Joanne Cobbe of JPilates. JPilates strike a balance between honouring the classical repertoire and teaching an evolved approach. She continues her training with a master teacher from The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. The Pilates Center have a direct link to Romana Kryzanowska; Joseph Pilates’ protégé. Additionally, Emily is a personal trainer, pre and postnatally qualified and a barre teacher.

When I met Cherie, I felt like I'd finally found the teacher for me. In only one session a week, I quickly saw a change in both my energy levels and muscle tone. Cherie's classes are dynamic and leave you feeling like you've had a good work out.Jemma Forte
My Yoga Mama practice keeps me balanced, energised and sane. It takes a huge effort to drag myself out of bed on a Saturday morning. After practice, the stress and strains of the past week disappear and I feel strong enough to take on the world.Karen Gill MBE
