About Us

The Twin Team at Rose & Glow are... twin sisters, Helen Macdonald-Prideaux and Lucy-Ann Prideaux, born to professional sports parents and raised on a sports university campus. Movement and sport have naturally been their life's work & experience.

Being immersed in sports such as gymnastics, swimming, tennis, hockey and trampolining from an early age, their adult education somewhat naturally leaned towards the teaching and science of movement and the human body. Lucy-Ann's undergraduate degree was in Sport and Exercise Science and Helen's in Performing Arts. Helen's post-graduate training began with gaining a diploma in Dance from the Laban Centre in London, and then a PGCE in Dance Education. Lucy-Ann followed her 1st class degree with a Master's degree in Human Nutrition and Metabolism.

Together, the twins have over 40 years of experience in the field of health and wellbeing, exercise teaching, instruction and nutrition.

Helen began her professional teaching career in 1994 working in secondary education. Then, in 2004 she gained the Stott Pilates full comprehensive training in matwork and equipment, later adding another dimension to her qualifications with BASI Pilates (Body Arts and Science Innovation).
