Jo Gledhill

Instructor and Owner

My mission is to make exercise, movement and wellbeing accessible to everyone.

I've taught yoga, Pilates and barre for over a decade, both in London and north Leeds. I live in Rawdon village with my 3 small kids, 1 allotment, 1 husband and 1 cat. 

I've absolutely loved setting up The Well House and getting to know all our clients. It's so rewarding to see people make huge and life-changing breakthroughs in their movement and mobility, as well as seeing how relaxed and happy people feel after our classes :)

I think movement is the most incredible wellbeing tool - it can turn your day around in moments - and I'm so glad to be able to bring these classes and this beautiful dedicated studio to Rawdon.
