Fully Equipped Pilates Studio in St Albans

About The Sogunro Practice

We’re a dedicated musculoskeletal therapy and pilates-based exercise centre providing assessment, treatment, functional exercise, plus some great practical advice.

Our aim is to make you feel better and to keep you moving.

Who do we help?


We’ve been here in the heart of London Colney village, St Albans, since 2008 – our clients range from 8 to 88 years of age, they’re at all levels of physical fitness, and come to us from all walks of life. What they do have in common is that they all want to maintain, improve or restore whatever functional level they require, whether it’s to be able to perform everyday activities, or to do their job, enjoy their favourite pastime, or to play recreational or elite sport.

We are well aware that for some people this can appear an intimidating environment to enter, so we want to reassure newcomers. You will feel at ease here. It is not a competitive environment and we will ensure you only work to a level you feel comfortable with. Don’t feel anxious about coming along.

How do we help?


These are some examples of the kinds of things our clients ask us to help them with:

  • Improve posture, strength, stability, flexibility, bone density.

  • Manage musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, from long-term pain to recent injuries.

  • Rehabilitate sports injuries from recreational through to elite level.

  • Provide pre-operative exercise therapy and post-operative rehabilitation.

  • Work with specialist conditions such as connective tissue disorders.

  • Pre and post-menopausal symptoms

  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation programs for pregnant and postpartum women - prolapse, leaking, pelvic floor tightness/ pain and diastasis.
