Body Soul Well is all about keeping you healthy, fit and happy.  If your wellbeing is important to you then you have come to the right place.

Josie McKenlay


I have been working in the health & fitness industry for over 30 years, starting out as a fitness instructor teaching every type of studio based classes at the best known health clubs in West London.

By the end of the ’90s I had built up a large portfolio of private clients and moved more towards the mind/body approach to exercise, teaching Pilates and yoga and helping clients reach their lifestyle goals.  In 2010, we moved to the Middle East and for 5 years worked with individuals and small groups in Abu Dhabi.  I continued my work in Dubai and undertook further training with DEFINE in Barre, Indoor Cycling and Aerial yoga/myofascial release, working a couple of days a week at the studio in the Marina.  Before returning to the UK, I spent a month in Rishikesh, India, deepening my knowledge of yoga.

Now back home and living in Deal, Kent, I am continuing to create online training courses and plan to start yoga and Barre style classes locally in February 2018.  I hope to continue to help people live a balanced, healthy life for many years to come.

My training includes:-

  • Pilates Matwork
  • Pilates Backcare
  • Pilates Orthopedics
  • Hatha Yoga
  • Pre/post natal Pilates and nutrition
  • Indoor cycling
  • Body conditioning/Barre
  • Ball rolling therapy
  • Childhood obesity prevention and management
  • Client psychology & motivation
