About Pilates with Ele Crossland


More about Ele Crossland

Hi there. I'm Ele Crossland, a Level 3 Body Control Pilates teacher.

I first began practising Pilates five years ago and loved how this non-impact exercise strengthened and toned my body. In addition, just one hour of concentration and focus allowed my mind to have a break from its constant business. I was hooked!

Coming to a cross-roads with work, I decided to retrain as a Pilates teacher, and registered with London-based Body Control Pilates. I qualified in Spring 2017 and hold certificates in Beginner and Intermediate Matwork Pilates. My training involved intensive study in their London studio, as well as 60 hours of supervised teaching with experienced teachers around the country.

Shoreline Pilates was established in 2017. I teach Pilates in Cleethorpes, Tetney, Louth and Lincolnshire suitable for all levels and abilities, and am particularly interested in the relationship between the body and the mind.

"In the six weeks I have been doing Pilates with Ele Crossland my flexibility has improved enormously. Thank you Ele for your caring kind and knowledgeable approach. I love the classes... I'm hooked."




"I'd always thought of Pilates as an easy-going form of exercise that didn't fit in with my idea of being 'hardcore'... Pilates classes with Ele Crossland opened my eyes - talk about hard-CORE! After just a few classes, Ele helped me learn how to activate my core muscles more effectively, and it's completely changed how I approach all my exercises now. The phrase "and now relax" will never be the same again. Thanks so much, Ele!




"Amazing classes and an amazing teacher, you have made me fall in love with Pilates again....thank you Ele Crossland. My core strength has improved considerably since starting classes in January, can highly recommend Pilates with Ele Crossland to everyone x"




"I had a very enjoyable one to one Pilates with Ele Crossland yesterday; as I'm a complete beginner she was very patient regularly correcting my position and spent time explaining the benefits of each exercise she taught me. She gave me exercises tailored to me and to help with stretching after running and I could feel the good I had done the next day working my core! Thank you!"




"What a fabulous week we had in Sivota. Ele is a wonderful Pilates teacher... she is caring, supportive, motivating and has a wide knowledge base... her teaching style is very personable and she made us all feel very comfortable trying new things...I would recommend Pilates with Ele Crossland without reservation."




It’s my first experience with Pilates with Ele Crossland and I love it! Ele is brilliant at keeping every session different and supporting you throughout the session making you feel relaxed in a non competitive or judgemental class !! She makes it feel like it’s a personalised session !



"Oh Ele. Forgot how good Pilates is and feels! 

Thank you SO much - Julie and I both thoroughly enjoyed and LOVED the class you gave.  Thank you for your patience and guidance - you are a great tutor.  We are both very fired up and keenly looking forward to next Thursday in Louth,"
