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’.
A L I S O N:
"My back pain has eased considerably. I feel invigorated".
A N N:
"My core strength has improved and I feel more supple".
D A V I D , 6 1 Y E A R S:
"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! "
S H A R O N:
"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!".
B A R R Y:
"I have enjoyed the Pilates classes so much. Sandhyas laid back approach made it easy for me to learn as I was nervous at first!! Its a really great class and I would highly recommend it to anyone."
