"Over the past few months I have noticed a huge difference in my core strength and posture and I always leave the pilates class feeling calm, refreshed and energised.
From breathing techniques, muscle toning to overall flexibility and relaxation, my Pilates sessions have become something of a weekly necessity and I would highly recommend Vicky as an expert Pilates instructor who is caring and supportive to all her clients' needs".
"I was completely in the dark about Pilates before joining Vicky's class, so it was with trepidation, anticipation and a little excitement that I set off for the first class. Slowly and calmly she took us through our moves, explaining all the while about which muscles we were working.
At first all the movements seemed quite easy apart from the fact that we now had to learn when to breath out and when to breathe in, something that gets easier as you progress. Vicky was soon, very subtly increasing the levels of difficulty and we began to feel like we had worked really hard by the end of each class. Vicky's, knowledge, professionalism and patience makes Pilates something that I really look forward to attending regularly".
"I would like to comment on Vicky's Pilates Class from my position as a Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferer.
It was recommended that I try Pilates to keep my joints as healthy as possible. High impact exercise was not possible for me so I thought I would give it a go. The problem though was finding the right class for me. Her class sizes are small so that she can concentrate on the individual needs of each member.
As a Physiotherapist Vicky is able to use her excellent skills in making sure that everyone gets the most benefit out of the exercises and even just as importantly they can progress at their own pace and according to their own ability. After the first 8 weeks course I found that my fitness and flexibilty was greatly improving and at no point did I feel I was pushing myself too hard. Vicky structured my exercises in such a way that they were totally within my capability.
She is an excellent teacher, always very encouraging and her class light-hearted. I am now on my third course and haven't looked back".
"I have been seeing Vicky every 2-4 weeks for 2 years to help manage a long-term chronic pain condition.
Vicky’s treatment is fantastic and has made a world of difference to my mobility and pain levels. My regular appointments mean I can work and lead a pretty normal life, which was looking impossible a few years ago – all without needing to take painkillers.
Her knowledge, professionalism and support has given me a lot more confidence in my abilities and I’m much more willing to push myself, as I know that if I overdo things – she can help to put me back together!"
