Pilates clients say...

For someone who has had an on/off relationship with back pain for 40 years I feel very fortunate to have discovered firstly, Pilates and secondly, Amanda who manages to make the classes very entertaining whilst enabling me to achieve exercises which at first seem impossible, benefiting both body and mind. 

I almost look forward to the classes! 

Pilates has given me a better idea of good posture how to stand tall and to breathe deeply, while stretching and the movement of joints is easing my shoulder and neck discomfort.  
Pilates is to me a great slow and controlling way to feel good.

I really enjoy Amanda’s classes, I have become more aware of my posture and core strength because of Pilates and it is easy to incorporate into everyday activities. The classes are sometimes challenging, which is good, but always enjoyable.


Pilates helps me to be more aware of my posture, it also makes me conscious of positioning my limbs and joints when lifting, sitting etc. 

After classes I always feel good about myself in body and mind.

I joined Amanda's Pilates sessions three months ago. My weekly, one hour, sessions have helped to strengthen my back and improve my overall flexibility. The results from these enjoyable sessions have also improved my intermittent, long term, back problems.

I am writing this testimonial as it may give others with similar back issues the confidence to give pilates a try.


"Under careful, gentle instruction Amanda guides you through your exercises working on the weaker points in your body. The machine supports your body whilst working and under instruction this builds your confidence. An hour flies by and the exhilaration at achieving and feeling the benefits of what you have achieved have to be tried to be appreciated..."
"...all I can say is this machine and Amanda have helped me achieve things I didn't think I could do. It's brilliant for confidence and for my body, and makes me more agile. It's very easily addictive and I'll certainly be going back for more..."

Many moons ago, I did Yoga whilst travelling around Australia, i had a lovely instructor, but only stayed in that area for a couple of months. On returning to the UK I looked into joining up again, but didn't really like the instructor or method of teaching.
Life moved on and I took up Martial Arts, which I did for many years till the body told me to stop. From there I concentrated on my other hobby of Motor Racing.
After many years of bashing myself about, I came to the conclusion I needed a more sedate past-time.
I joined Amanda locally after a few emails, I didn't actually know anything about Pilates but I'd heard it was good for your 'core' and as a previous Martial Artist, I understood this was essential.

Amanda is lovely and very knowledgeable, the groups are small and friendly, I attend a 'beginners' class which has improved the confidence in my ability.

I've noticed improvement in my 'Core' and range of movements in the short time I've been attending.

I would completely recommend Amanda and Pilates to everyone, and already do.

"A friend and I have been attending classes with Amanda for about 18 months.  She is a patient and caring person with a good sense of humour, which she needs sometimes with some of the exercises.

I know that parts of my body are much stronger and more flexible from attending the class. Come and improve your core strength and meet some new people."
