Body Concept Pilates Studio

Welcomes You

Find  Your  Balance  With  Izumi  Mottram 

Home: Welcome

Hello, my name is Izumi


Health and wellbeing have always been my passion. I pursued my career as a Pilates instructor after studying psychology, seeking to create a bridge between mental and physical wellbeing.


After receiving my Mat and Reformer certifications from Polestar, I spent 16 years teaching a wide variety of clients in Asia, including Japan and China. Now that I have settled in the UK, I currently run a private studio where I focus on building a toned body and healthy mind.


Through my years of experience, many of my clients benefitted from my classes as it helped them build stronger joints and eliminated existing chronic pain.I keep my classes small so that I can hone in on your main goals. Our intimacy allows us to develop a closer relationship so that we can get to know each other and help each other grow.


To me, Pilates is therapeutic. Not only are we challenging ourselves, we’re also growing together as a community. Whether you’re looking to build strength, to improve mobility, or just feel better, I invite you to join me and grow.

Have you ever wanted to try a one-to-one Pilates session?

It is now available via ZOOM and the program given is tailored to suit your needs and objectives.


These sessions allow for faster and greater progression and are a must for anyone requiring that individual attention.

I strongly recommend private sessions if you have any area of concern, such as neck / lower back pain, injuries or medical conditions which I can specifically tend to.

Even though the studio is now open for private lessons I am still offering to do them online.

Please contact me with any questions, comments or requests.


Private Studio Reformer
※The studio is closed temporarily for maintenance

This is a one-to-one private reformer session in my own studio.

Reformer machines usually offer quicker progression as they provide added resistance during pilates exercises. Whether you are brand new to a pilates reformer or have been practising for years, a private session will benefit you in countless ways!

・ Recovery from injuries - back pain, knee and hip issues and more

・Keeping fit during pregnancy and recovering        quickly after giving birth

・Improving performance in your chosen sport

・Maintaining mobility in your later years

※The studio is closed temporarily for  maintenance.



I first joined Izumi’s pilot online sessions during the COVID lockdown. I had never tried Pilates before but I immediately fell in love with it! Izumi is a brilliant instructor. She is patient, observant, and most importantly, great fun to learn from! Izumi is very professional and is always looking for new ways to bring energy into our sessions. 





Izumi is a consummate professional and her skill and knowledge is incredible. She is passionate about Pilates and has a particular interest in supporting the more mature woman to achieve the best balance of mind and body. She makes each person feel special and nurtures each individual pushing them to achieve their very best. Izumi's classes are never boring and I always feel energised afterwards. I feel blessed to have found Izumi and treasure her as an amazing teacher and a wonderful friend.



Izumi’s Pilates class is absolutely amazing. She has really made positive changes to my whole body as well as my mind. Izumi is extremely professional, and she engages with you and your body in her fun and friendly manner, which makes my experience a much more enjoyable and happier one! In Izumi’s Pilates class there is very close supervision (even in her online class) and great guidance on technique which have lead to noticeable improvements! 


"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference,in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body".
