Emma graduated from The University of the West of England (UWE) with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2007. Since then she has worked consistently in private practice alongside NHS work in both Bristol and London.

Coming from a sports driven family, Emma developed a strong interest in exercise, rehabilitation and fitness. This led her to discover Pilates both as a practice and a passion, and as a result she has completed intensive programs to become a fully certified APPI Pilates instructor.

For Emma however, Pilates isn’t merely exercise, it’s a way of life and one she’s used to inspire clients ranging from Victoria’s Secret models, Bristol’s emergency services, and senior citizens. She believes Pilates can be adapted for all and her motivational technique ensures that the practice is never dull.

During her time in London working for both the NHS and private clinics, Emma has gained a variety of experience and was particularly interested in neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and stroke, amputees, orthopaedics, post-operative rehab (with some hefty personal experience) and musculoskeletal conditions.

Amongst other courses she has taken a specialised interest in pre and post-natal Pilates and exercise rehabilitation in osteoporosis and scoliosis. Emma has also completed many post-grad courses including shoulder pathology, rehab and myofascial release. Early in her career she honed these skills extensively while working for an American football team.

Emma has a special interest in hypermobility, which she has herself, and has had excellent results in limiting pain and further injury with a combination of physiotherapy, education and Pilates.

When she is not working, Emma enjoys keeping fit with dance, yoga and being anywhere near the sea. To find out more about Emma and the way she works please read her blog.

Having felt very unfit due to lack of exercise I started with Emma some weeks ago to improve flexibility and strength and am loving getting my body moving more. Also I feel so secure and comfortable with the workout programme Emma chooses which is nicely challenging for my fitness level and makes me feel much better from week to week!! Just what I needed.


Since I started working with Emma Law my lifts have improved to the point where I am considering record attempts in my weight and age category, so Pilates works for powerlifting! Thanks Emma.


Emma was excellent in helping me get strong enough to ski again after a complicated knee fracture. She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging and positive. She worked with me in the gym and tailor-made an exercise plan to work on. I am back enjoying skiing! Thanks Emma!.

Pippa Meares

Pilates sessions with Emma have completely changed the way I move! My posture has improved, i'm more toned and a recurrent back/neck problem has all but disappeared. I highly recommend Emma's excellent classes.

N. H

Three years ago, at the age of 57, I decided to take up Pilates to help my body to move more freely and I am so glad that I found Emma who has been an amazing teacher, fully understanding my limitations and successfully working with me to improve my flexibility, core strength and posture.

F. G

I initially sort treatment to manage severe chronic neck pain from Cervical spondylitis. I was also due for a knee replacement, both degenerative conditions. Emma is highly skilled in the precise attention to the details of rehabilitation. Her ability to focus intently on 3 clients with different health issues in the same session is constant. It is that energetic approach that has resulted in my ability to build strength and to retain overall function. My neck pain has reduced considerably and I was able to recover from the knee surgery rapidly.
