Jospeh Pilates was an internee at Knockaloe Camp where he was encouraged by Doctors, both civilian and Army, to help with the rehabilitation of his fellow internees. To do so he began devising a machine, using the metal springs and wooden boards of the beds.

When he left Knockaloe, he emigrated to America where he further developed his techniques and apparatus.

Mo is now offering “One to One” and Group sessions on the apparatus that was created by Joseph Pilates – This is different from ‘Mat Work’.

Exercises are tailored to each client depending on their individual needs and especially to aid recovery from injury.

If you are already into Pilates and work on mats, why not give this a try. Your body will feel the difference after a session using the specialised Pilates Apparatus compared to the Mat.

Mo does “One to One” Training at her Pilates Studio in Onchan so if you would prefer to have Mo to yourself, please call her on mobile number 07624 490480. She will be happy to discuss your requirements and arrange a time(s)to suit you.

Mo is a ‘Reiki Master’, and has been for many years

I feel like the time is right for introducing Reiki

Reiki complements other therapies, as well as traditional and eastern medicine practices. At the level of Degree One working consciously with Reiki energy will add strength to any therapy involving using your hands – Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Sports Massage, etc.

As crystals act as receivers, storers and transmitters of energy, Reiki can also be used in Crystal healing. ‘Chare’ the crystal by holding it in your hands for around 10 minutes, allowing the Reiki energy to flow into it. Remember to cleanse your crystal after using it for healing purposes. In later degrees you will learn how to charge a crystal as a master crystal.

Aromatherapy oils can also be charged using Reiki – but it should be stressed that aromatherapy oils have a great natural energy and should not be used therapeutically unless you are a fully trained professional aroma therapist. If you want to use essential oils therapeutically always look for advice from a trained person.

In the case of Homeopathy, it has been suggested by Homeopths that as the Reiki energy works to bring a balance the essential elements within the remedy may be neutralized making the remedy ineffective. It would therefore be preferable to use Reiki when an individual is not taking any homeopathic remedies – instead, use it either before or after a course of homeopathic treatment.

In Shiatsu work is being done on meridian lines and special acupressure points. Do not use Reiki whist working with Shiatsu – use it after treatment has been given.

Remember always to ‘cleanse’ yourself after giving treatment. Physically wash your hands and then run cool or cold water over your hands, wrists and lower arms. Use a visualisation technique to cleanse the body totally – one visualling standing under a shower of brilliant, sparkling diamond rain is very useful. Take time each day for prayer or medication and remember to use the Five Principles during your day.


Isle of Man-based Mo Sherring has been teaching Pilates for more than 20 years. She first trained as a fitness instructor in 1984 at the Fitness Centre, Covent Garden, London, and then went on to train as a Pilates instructor and was lucky enough to do all her training under Master Trainer Michael King, Founder of the Pilates Institute. She is a fourth generation member of the ‘Pilates family’.

Mo is a Pilates licensee for Isle of Man and the Canary Islands, and holds a Certificate in Dynamic Stability training and Masai Walking. She is a Reiki Master, is certified in Gary Carter’s Yoga Pilates and Anatomy course and received Yoga training from Geoff Powell.

Mo, who established the Pilates Studio in the Isle of Man, has been an instructor with Riding for the Disabled since the 1970s, becoming RDAAI certified in 1994 and receiving a certificate recognising 25 years of service from Princess Anne, The Princess Royal and President of RDA.

She regularly attends classes, workshops and conference, and has studied the Feldenkrais Method, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Massage, Muscle Energy Technique, the Alexander Technique and Tai Chi. Visitors to the Isle of Man Pilates Studio can benefit from all this hard-earned training.

Mo has also completed development days at the Pilates Institute and was invited to attend the unique Pilates Training Reunion 2011.

She believes one of the most important aspects of Pilates, and indeed any exercise, is to choose your teacher wisely. You should ask where and with whom did they train, how long have they been teaching, what other experience they have connected with human/animal movement, and whether they have experience and extensive knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology (the study of the body in motion).

The thinking person’s way of exercising

What is Pilates


Pilates covers the art and science of human movement through anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and kinesiology.


The mind body relationship in the essence of Pilates and in one word awareness is where you begin – the first step in Pilates is concentrating on focused awareness, the rest follows.


Pilates is a technique that acknowledges the power of the mind and apporaches the fitness of the body as a whole, working to improve strength, mobility and alignment.


Pilates is not just a series of exercises - it is a conceptual approach to movement. It will change not only the way you look, but how you feel and think, your awareness.

“Not only is health a normal condition, but it is our duty to not only to attain it but to maintain it.”

Joseph Pilates

what They’re Saying

Client Testimonials

“I have multiple sclerosis which has given me balance difficulties, both static and dynamic. Meaning I can struggle negotiating obstacles safely and carrying out some activities of everyday life such has reaching and bending without the sensation of over balancing. The opportunity of being able to partake in aqua -Pilates has definitely improved my balance and quality of movement, by helping find and recognise my centre of gravity my. My confidence has improved and my muscle strength and flexibility is so much greater since I began this form of exercise. The benefits to me of the water medium is the support it provides allowing me to fully stretch both muscles and joints to a grater range without the fear of falling in addition it reduces the likelihood of overheating which can be a significant problem with MS in land based exercise formats so has allowed me to improve my general fitness levels. There has also been an psychological element to my participation in aqua-Pilates classes, in that it has built my confidence in moving about more normally by increasing my ability to correct balance loss and in doing so has gone a long way to improving my quality of life and my day to day outlook. Plus I enjoy the equality and freedom of movement without fear it allows. I would recommend these classes to anyone of any age particularly those whose confidence of movement is diminished through illness ,injury or disability I’m sure your movement confidence and quality plus your general fitness can only be improved with less stress on your body and mind.”

“I arranged to see Mo after suffering a prolonged back problem and was instantly struck by her warmth, sense of humour and genuine enthusiasm to help. She took time to really understand the issues and has worked with me to develop a programme of daily exercises that are steadily making a difference. Mo is highly charismatic and makes training sessions fun and informative. This has been my first experience of Pilates and I would encourage anyone wanting to learn techniques that improve general fitness and wellbeing to give it a go”

“Mo recently presented a Pilates Workshop at a Progressive Neurological Study Day. This was attended by G.P.’s, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Social Workers and many other Allied Health Professionals. Mo’s Pilates Workshop was well received by all and led to discussions afterwards. It was a highly successful Day.”

Sue Wilson

Primary Care

Walk without pain. Mo diagnosed the problem immediately and gave me a set of simple exercises to follow which over a course of a few weeks of working with her completely eradicated the problem.  Mo’s sessions are always fun, informative and stay with you forever. She is a lifesaver.”


Isle of Man

“I am a 77 year old man with Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s is a progressive, degenerative brain disorder. It is incurable, and relies on regular doses of medication to control the symptoms. These symptoms can include, an involuntary tremor (in either or both arms), diskenesia, which is a constant weaving motion of the upper body, increased risk of falling because of balance difficulties, and slurring of speech. It is caused by a deficiency in the brain’s inability to manufacture a neural transmitting chemical called Dopamine. The purpose of this chemical is to carry the messages from the brain to the other parts of the body that control movement. Laboratory manufactured dopamine is used to correct the deficiency, but it can be, and very often is, difficult to achieve a correct balance of supply and demand. My Parkinson’s was diagnosed about ten years ago. I was prescribed a course of treatment which I still take, and which, to this day, is largely unchanged. Since I was diagnosed, I have followed a regular exercise regime, both physical and mental. The physical is one hour in total each day, on the cross trainer, treadmill, and exercise bike. I am convinced that this exercise is a vital part of my treatment. Mo Sherring has recently started to lead our local Parkinson’s group in some Pilates exercises at our monthly “drop in”. These have proved to be both popular and enjoyable. Mo has also started to introduce my wife and I to a Pilates regime that is designed to encourage us both individually and jointly to enjoy more exercise and feel the benefits that Pilates can give to folk of all ages and abilities. We both look forward to a healthier and more flexible future.”
