Live a healthy,  freshly centered life!

Welcome to Freshly Centered! A Pilates Inspired Living Company that aims to bring Pilates to everyone. Tracy is an APPI Pilates Instructor and Course Presenter and runs her Pilates business in Aberdeen, Scotland, including group pilates classes.  She is also a Senior Chartered Physiotherapist  specialising in musculoskeletal & sport injuries, and pre & postnatal fitness.

I believe Pilates is body-changing, life empowering, and essential for everyone whether you just want to keep your body in balance, prevent injury, or enhance your performance. Combining my physiotherapy skills with my pilates base gives me the best tools to analyse your movement and show you what your body needs. Here you will find details on local classes in Aberdeen, events, online workouts, and blog posts.
