'Claire is the best Pilates teacher I have had. Over many years I have tried Pilates courses at least 5 times as I have a joint condition and back problems that have led to surgery and years of physiotherapy. All other Pilates has not been tailored enough, not reinforced the basics or advanced too rapidly becoming more akin to keep fit rather than the purpose of clinical Pilates. Claire’s knowledge of anatomy and the ergonomics of movement is excellent, her ability to modify exercises to suit your needs is spot on and I especially like the way she prompts and describes how to achieve the correct posture or engage the correct muscle group for each exercise. She really helps me connect with my body and what I need to work on. I absolutely recommend Claire. '
'I am really feeling the benefit of my Pilates classes with Claire. She is an excellent teacher who explains very clearly how the body and the various muscles work, so that I feel completely secure in her care. She is particularly good at ensuring that the exercises progress appropriately and she always offers various options to suit all standards. It is evident that Claire is extremely well qualified, professional and caring in her approach. '
'I am a sports massage therapist and I can’t recommend Claire’s Pilates sessions enough. Claire’s classes have benefitted me in mind and body during these unprecedented times. The classes strike the perfect balance between pushing me, while making me feel I can achieve more, whilst also working within my own limits. '
Claire’s positive attitude, knowledge and motivation has helped me find my core again!
‘I really enjoy coming to Claire’s classes. I learn something new every time!’
‘I didn’t think that I had any stomach muscles left after having my son, but Claire helped me to find them again! She always ensures that my technique is spot on too.’
‘I was nervous about starting to exercise again after injuring my back. My physiotherapist suggested that I see Claire on a one-to-one basis. I feel totally at ease in each session as I know that working with Claire ensures that what I do is always safe and appropriate for me. She allows me to go at my own pace, I never feel rushed.’
‘I wish that I had found Claire years ago! She has really helped me to get back into shape after an illness.’
‘Since my very first meeting with Claire, I felt confident that she understood my goals, and limitations caused by my painful knees and achilles. Claire manages to create programmes which are both challenging and achievable – a fine balancing act! She is always encouraging and patient, and takes care to always ensure that I understand any new exercises. I have had to invest in a whole new wardrobe of clothes, having gone down 2 dress sizes! Any exercise is now mostly pain-free too. If you are considering using a personal trainer then I can’t recommend Claire highly enough.’
