Mahani Yunus

Mahani is a qualified Body Control Pilates teacher – Body Control Pilates is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation. They are a level 4 Pilates training provider in the UK and have been at the forefront of international Pilates since 1995 and are widely seen as offering the benchmark for safe and effective teaching. Following the comprehensive training and an ongoing programme of continuous education, Mahani strives to provide you the highest quality of teaching.

Mahani has been practising Pilates since 2001 when her physiotherapist recommended it to her as a way of managing knee issues. The knee specialist suggested surgery to resolve the issue, however Mahani was determined to explore all avenues to avoid surgery and is convinced that it is because of Pilates that the surgery was not necessary.


Leading a physically active lifestyle as a very keen horse rider, an enthusiastic golfer and a qualified PADI Divemaster, puts a lot of demand on the human body. Mahani passionately believes that Pilates has allowed her to pursue these physically demanding activities and was the main driver to qualify to teach Pilates and to share her own experience on how to tap into the fundamentals of Pilates to strive for the physical wellbeing of each individual. Mahani offers enthusiasm in abundance and empathy which is unique to each person so they can improve their mobility and quality of life, regardless of their background, age and fitness level.

Mahani is a founding member of the Body Control Pilates Academy, a member of the Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA), a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and is very proud to have qualified as an EquipilatesTM Biomechanics TrainerTM.
