JGS Europe Tour – Julie Midgley and Caroline Murray

Our last episode of our Special John Garey Show goes to Europe is another two parter. Part 1 is with Julie Midgley in Marseille, France and Part 2 is with Caroline Murray in Oxfordshire Pilates Studio, England. These are both really fun interviews and you’re going to fall in love with my guests (just like I did). Enjoy!

Meet Julie


Julie Midgley is an Instructor Trainer for STOTT PILATES®.  She lives in Mougins, France which is nestled just above Cannes in the French Riviera.  Julie has a tiny studio, in Mougins, geared for private training.  Working in partnership with Planet Fitness, Julie offers training courses and workshops in Aix en Provence at the Les Mills/Planet Fitness training centre.

Hailing from Toronto Canada, Julie completed her STOTT PILATES Training at Merrithew head office in 2010.

“Life is all about change, challenge and adventure.  I am living my dream life and would truly change nothing, however yes, there have been many tears!! Learning to teach in French has been tricky and huge amounts of self study, but the rewards are never ending. I love my life, my clients & students are my family here. STOTT PILATES has not only changed my life, but continues to inspire me to be a better instructor and IT making a difference in the lives of all of my clients and students here.  We are so far behind in France, I am still amazed by the fact that many people are unaware of what pilates is. I am here to tell them!!”
