{about Lotus}

Lotus Health and Fitness was founded by Clare Bannister in 2012

‘I’ve worked in the Health, Fitness and Wellbeing Industry for over 25 years. Throughout this time I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge and skills which I now bring to my studio. 

Why do we offer Pilates, Yoga and Ayurveda? Each practice follows the holistic philosophy of mind-body health and fitness. 

Lotus offers an Ayurvedic approach to health, fitness  and wellbeing, with a focus on activity, nutrition and therapies to suit you whatever your fitness level and goals. 

Ayurveda is a tried and tested, common sense approach to living well; staying in good health, and in harmony with your environment. At Lotus we understand that we are all individual, and our diet, lifestyle, exercise and activity preferences are unique.

We offer a range of physical activities including Yoga, Pilates Reformer, Pilates Tower and Mat based Pilates classes and 1-1 sessions designed to suit all levels.

We provide diet and nutritional therapy and workshops, to support optimal health and Ayurvedic massage therapy for treatment of common ailments and relaxation time for you.

Whatever stage of life you are in, whatever level of fitness you have, Lotus will support and help you feel physically and emotionally well and become the best version of yourself.

The world in which we live and the demands we place upon ourselves can be tough on the body and the mind. Lotus Health and Fitness can help you achieve balance - radiant good health.
