Read what those who attend my Pilates lessons have to say below.

“I love your classes.  There is so much attention to personal ability and a desire to push us to achieve our personal best.” HM

“I was introduced to Pilates by my osteopath who recommended it when I was recovering from a spinal injury. A few years on, it proved to be a big part of my recovery from major surgery. Latterly, it’s helped me to regain strength and mobility after a rotator cuff (shoulder) injury. In addition to all that, it’s been a lifeline throughout Covid lockdown, providing me with an essential ‘me space’ as well as a ‘sense of normality’.” LP

“More supple, less painful, and more mobile hip joint.  Friendship!” CP

“Stronger core and a flatter tummy! It helps keep my back in check too! Plus general strengthening. It’s an hour of me time!” KR

“Improves my core strength which really helps with a congenital back problem.” LE

“It helps me improve and maintain strength and suppleness. I always feel mentally refreshed and relaxed after my Pilates class.” CF

“Feel stronger, less stiff, my knee has improved and generally it feels a positive exercise for my whole body.” AM

“Energy, relaxation, increased lung function, clearer mind, more defined body, feeling great.” SH

“I run long distances at a competitive level for a local athletics club. Since upping the miles I experienced numerous injuries, usually related to my IT band or hip flexors, which was really frustrating because I wasn’t able to improve my performance as I had to rest and then go through rehabilitation.

“I started Pilates around six months ago and immediately began to notice the difference in my running. I feel stronger in my core and therefore I am able to push through challenging moments more comfortably. I have therefore avoided injury since starting Pilates.

“I have just completed the London marathon in 3 hours and 22 minutes, 7 minutes faster than my previous personal best (before starting Pilates) . I am extremely pleased with my performance and attribute my success to the strength gained from Rosemary’s teaching and activities she sets me to do at home.” AC, Apr’19

“I suffered from knee pain for many years after twisting my knee while playing badminton. Since I started Pilates, the pain has cleared up and I am able to move more comfortably and confidently than before”. HM

“I am much stronger, and I never have any back pain.” CW

“It helps me improve and maintain strength and suppleness. I always feel mentally refreshed and relaxed after my Pilates class.” CF

“It is good for my back and gives me pleasure.” ED

“Helps my whole body, feel better about myself.” JS

“Relaxation. Improved core strength. Improved posture.” SG

“Better posture, lower back more comfortable.” CW

“Stability and strength in my back following disc prolapse at L4/5 and relaxation.” NA

“It has helped with balance and gives good core strength.” DC

“Eases my back pain and strengthens my legs especially my right leg due to hamstring injury.” HM

“Less aches and pains.” LE

“It’s really helped my bad back and helped strengthen my core muscles.” SR

“Improves my core strength which really helps with a congenital back problem.” LE

“Since I’ve started Pilates, it’s so much easier to bend backwards over kitchen counters to install light fittings.” CC (Electrician)

“Thanks so much for this evening’s class: it’s the most I’ve “twisted” in almost 3 years without setting off a back spasm!!  Can’t tell you how chuffed I am – it feels like a huge milestone for me, particularly as I never dreamed I’d get this far. Thank you for all your support and patience.” Lisa

“As well as reducing my back pain, my Pilates sessions have had the unexpected, but welcome side-effect of making it much easier to get out of the bath!” Peter (76)

“On driving home from my Pilates class, I am sitting so much taller that I have to adjust my rear-view mirror.” Kim

“Walking home from my Pilates class, I notice that I walk much straighter than I do on my way there.” Julia

“When I’m driving I can comfortably turn my head and look over my shoulder without having to twist my whole body around – I couldn’t do that last year before I started Pilates.” Eve

“I managed the decorating without any pain in my back – which I would never have been able to do last year.” June Gray

“I’m recovering really well which I have no doubt is at least in part because of your excellent Pilates classes!” Nik Knott (after surgery)

“The classes mean a lot to me – they bring such joy to my mind and body. I feel very spoiled by them as they are a ‘me’ time thing.” Toni Arthur-Hay

“I suspect the real reason behind my rapid recovery has been the Pilates conditioning you gave me.” John Needham (after double hip replacement surgery)

“I haven’t had any back pain since I started Pilates.” Natasha

“I have found my sessions in the studio have been invaluable to my well being & recovery from back problems, the bespoke exercises have worked where needed & have improved mobility & pain.” June Gray

“Made me aware of core strength, important for back care, as well as abdominal muscles.” Teresa

“Thank you for everything you have done for me, you have given me back a pain free life. I think what you do is great and you make it a pleasure to attend your classes.” Jennifer Dean

“I joined to improve my abdominal muscle tone but Pilates has improved my posture and flexibility as well. Far more than I expected.” Margaret S

“I love Pilates and the benefits have been increased toned abdominal muscles which has improved my back and reduced the lower back pain I have had. My posture has improved and I find I am able to practice the positions at home following the excellent class instruction. An excellent and very friendly class.” Sally Taylor

“I enjoy doing the classes and I feel I’m doing the best for my back. I’m more confident with movement it seems easier.” Maureen

“Never miss a lesson, makes me feel relaxed and fit.” Philip Martin

“I’m sure the classes have made my back stronger. Now feel I can do more gardening. Enjoy the class very relaxing and calm. Complete confidence in my teacher. I have been visiting my chiropractor every four months for years. On my first visit after starting Pilates I was pleased when she told me that my back is the ‘best it’s ever been’.” Anita Martin
