Tried the 10:45 class at Pirton for my first introduction Pilates. As a 70 something I was a bit concerned, but the instruction was clear, the pace was related to the class attendees and the whole experience left me feeling tired but more mobile than I have for some time. I’ll be back next week for sure.Pete
Pilates offers me the opportunity to improve my core strength which in turn underpins everything I do, whether it is domestic chores, other sports/ fitness related activities, or, frankly day to day living.
I also believe that pilates has helped me have more stamina and because I consider my breathing more, I am less likely to hyper ventilate. In times of crisis i can use my breathing techniques to stay calm. With Pilates i find that Caroline’s descriptions perfectly sums up the actions we are working on, and those descriptions make the Pilates poses that much more easy to adopt accurately, without having to sit up and check what she is actually doing. So for someone ‘Visual’ like me it is a huge help.Sarah
I love the fact that when I arrive at Pilates I can’t reach down and touch my toes, but by the end of the 45minutes session I can!Cheryl
Thank you for being a great instructor, you have helped me enjoy fitness classes again and inspired me to enter the Hitchin 5K run.Clare
Caroline pitches things perfectly for the children’s age and ability. All the children, including those with additional needs, look forward to their weekly sessions and are completely engaged throughout.Teacher
Caroline’s sessions are well planned and she always liaises in advance to plan suitable themes and identify any particular needs that may need to be considered. She works effectively with a spread of age groups and enables all children to access activities at their level. Sessions are much enjoyed by all.Headteacher
