The New Dawn Project


This combines everything I do in one package, or you can buy parts of it to suit your needs.

All the exercise classes run continuously. They can be purchased in packs of 6 weeks, as an ongoing monthly Membership or included in the full New Dawn Project programme which is broken down into three 6-week blocks.

Block 1

In Block 1 the Workshop will be cover all things diet and nutrition as recommend for the healthy over 60’s and those suffering from a lifestyle disease e.g. diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.

Block 2

In Block 2 we will look at other Lifestyle behaviours which are relevant to the 60 plus group.  These include Mindset, Purpose, Stress, Sleep and Social Connection.

Block 3

In block 3 I’m bringing you my brand new programme for 2023 called ‘Life Pie’.

Through Life Pie I’ll help you to delve deeper into the different elements of your life.

Your Pie is integral to ageing successfully and life fulfilment and coaching sessions will enable you to personalise the New Dawn Project Life Pie to your own life.

The Classes

Build resilience to overcome life’s challenges


Mobilise your spine strengthen your core to keep your back strong, flexible and protected.


Stay mobile to be able to play with your grandkids on the floor – and get up again!

Stay flexible to access places you never dreamed you would.


Strong muscles keep you mobile and independent

Strong muscles allow you to carry your shopping, climb stairs with ease and prevent fat gain.

Strong muscles help to maintain strong bones and prevent or manage Osteoporosis

Joseph Pilates:

“If you’re 30 and your spine is stiff, you are old – if you’re 60 and your spine is flexible, you are young”

Use it or Lose It!

We cannot store flexibility, cardio fitness or strength

Finding Balance & Fulfilment

Exercise is said to be the magic pill, however it’s so easy to get focused on just one part of your life to the detriment of other parts.  The full New Dawn Project focuses on all elements of successful ageing and in the final block of workshops you will learn how to use the Life Pie to bring balance to your life and will help you to achieve those things that have always seemed elusive or just out of reach.

I have been doing Pilates for several years and last year and decided to try Anita’s classes. I was looking for something more personalised, something that would challenge me more and help me become stronger. With Anita’s classes I found exactly what I wanted! Due to small group sizes and her amazing memory of everyone’s needs (injuries, conditions and different experience levels) the exercises feel personalised, almost like having a 1 to 1 session. I would certainly recommend Anita's Pilates class for all experience levels.

Having suffered with back problems for many years (osteoarthritis, slipped disc and osteopenia) I utilised the first lockdown to find a Pilates class. I liked the sound of small classes and Anita seemed very qualified for what I felt I needed. The class turned out to be exactly what I needed but soon realised I both wanted and needed more. Anita explained in an easy to understand way how to improve my bone density but I was loath to join a class, as I was scared! So I embarked on 1 to 1 training which is great. The sessions are tailored to my needs and Anita is very flexible and will often change things during the session as issues arise. I know I have a way to go but with Anita’s continuing support I know I will achieve my ultimate goal which is to be stronger and more flexible. The results so far (in under a year) are amazing! I’ve also started the stretch and relax session on a Friday afternoon and it’s such a great way to set you up for the weekend and ensure a great night’s sleep! Couldn’t recommend her more highly.

I really enjoy the classes I do with Anita. She offers a good variety of exercises, something for everyone and every ability. Anita is an excellent teacher and her years of experience means that she can offer just the right exercise, we are stretched, but safe. She is full of curiosity about fitness and keeps up to date with new methods and ideas. I feel so lucky to have found Anita.

I joined Anita's classes just over a year ago. I'm awaiting hip surgery and have found the pilates classes brilliant for maintaining my mobility and relieving pain. I love the classes as Anita always builds each exercise up through different levels and takes time to check you are safe and within your abilities, whilst providing a bit of a challenge too. Every class is so different - there's never any danger of getting bored! And having the classes recorded so you can revisit later is so helpful. Can heartily recommend especially if you are looking for a trainer committed to helping you age healthily and happily

After doing Pilates for several years with a number of different well qualified teachers I was looking for a good Pilates teacher in Sale. I found and joined Sale Pilates, and I am so glad that I did. Anita is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience. In small group classes, in her studio or online, she is able to ensure that all the exercises are done safely and correctly, whilst also accommodating people's individual needs. Anita is passionate about improving our health and enjoyment of life, especially as we mature! This all sounds very serious, but Anita's commitment and bubbly personality make the lessons interesting and fun! I have certainly noticed that I have far fewer aches and pains, and feel stronger and more flexible. If you have been toying with the idea of trying Pilates I definitely encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to learn with Anita.
