Focus Pilates is a classical Pilates studio offering professionalinstruction to those seeking balance of mind and body.


A place to nurture minds, bodies & spirits.

Focus Pilates was founded in 2014 by Ashley Gregory, an American ex-pat. Ashley taught Pilates for many years in the US before moving to the UK and when given the opportunity to teach here, embraced it fully, always with the dream of having her own, welcoming and dedicated studio – packed full of not just mats but the best, most effective equipment.

In June 2016, Focus moved to its new home at The Old Tannery Studios. The new, permanent space meant that Ashley could finally teach her much loved equipment classes – all taught on Peak Pilates equipment.

Peak Pilates uses only the finest materials, including traditional wood, sustainable bamboo and modern metals, it honors Joseph Pilates’ original designs—deliberately including only those components that they believe will preserve and bolster the integrity of authentic Pilates exercises.

Ashley Gregory is a Peak comprehensively certified Pilates Instructor.  She began practicing Pilates in 2008 and quickly fell in love with the results.  Her love of Pilates inspired her to become an instructor, and she began teaching in 2010.  Originally from Massachusetts, she left her job at an award winning studio to relocate to England in 2014, where she founded Focus Pilates.  She is passionate about helping clients achieve both their Pilates and fitness goals through fun, challenging, and innovative sessions.
