What My Students Are Saying
I have been attending Pilates for 9 weeks and I woke up for the first time without the usual limitation in my back. Usually I ‘carefully’ get up out of bed. I still got out on bed using a method I had learned, but my back was definitely freer! It felt different. I thought I must have been dreaming. My back felt the best it had done since it first ‘went’.

“My back pain has eased considerably. I feel invigorated”.
A L I S O N
“I have been suffering from sciatica since February this year and a recent MRI revealed defect pars of the L5 vertebrae. Attending ‘Pilates for backs’ twice weekly for 6-7 weeks together with similar physiotherapy exercise at home has definitely reduced this pain so that its more tolerable. This has meant that I have recently renewed my gym membership to undertake gentle exercise and I am playing golf again albeit with ‘half swings’. The long wait for medical treatment is now so much more bearable! “

“I find great peace in this session & whilst it is exercise I find it very therapeutic for my mind. To sum up in one word – Empowering!”.
