Ms Charlotte Farrant
Job Title: Practice Director
Charlotte had a successful career as a dancer, model, actress and presenter before she started teaching Pilates. Once she stopped dancing to have children, her back started to play up. Mr Butcher was recommended for physiotherapy, this was when they first met almost 12 years ago. He emphasized to her the importance of correct posture and how strong core muscles help support your back. She experienced how much it helped her back and there began her interest in becoming a Pilates teacher! Charlotte qualified as a Pilates mat work Teacher in May 2002 with the Pilates Institute. Starting with one class a week in St Augustineï¿½s Hall the demand quickly built up to eleven classes there. She soon realised she needed to expand, it made sense to find a studio. Charlotte and her husband bought No 3 in August 2005 and after lots of building work The Body Junction opened in June 06. Two of the therapy rooms are for the exclusive use of Peter Butcher, Physiotherapist and his team who was also looking for a new base for his Physiotherapy clinic. Rebecca Lunn joined us as a Physio and also teaches Pilates along with four other teachers.Tracey Butcher also works here 2 days a week. There are now 29 Pilates classes a week. Charlotte has continued her training in The Pilates technique using the studio equipment, the reformer and half trapeze, and is always keen to learn more and pass it on to all her clients.
