"Louise's approach to Pilates knocks all others into the shade. Her experience is phenomenal. The equipment she uses is first class as is her Pilates facility. In just 10 sessions the improvement to my core stability has been phenomenal. And my ability to be aware of and isolate different muscle groups means a more relaxed and fluid effort, keys to successful endurance athletics. Pilates with Louise is now a bedrock of my triathlon training regime." Nigel Downing ITU Age Group Championships, Hawai'i 2005. Great Britain Team

"I never imagined when I limped into Louise's studio that this would be the beginning of something akin to a lifesaving experience! Due to Louise's excellent professional knowledge, experience and techniques, not only have I found Pilates immensely physically beneficial but also interesting and so enjoyable. I am, and shall continue to be, most grateful for the way Louise's special expertise is giving me greatly improved ability to enjoy everyday activities together with an increased sense of well-being." LA

"I do not know of anybody who is as good an exponent of Pilates as she is. Her thorough knowledge of Anatomy, and the skill with which she works out her progressions have impressed me greatly." Dr GM (Physiotherapist)

"Her work is of the highest standard and Louise has an excellent knowledge of the body and is able to correct and retrain problem areas." PB (Physiotherapist)

"I couldn't believe that after only two sessions, my back pain had gone." BP

"Before I came to Louise I couldn't drive for any extended period, over the last two days I have driven over a thousand miles - pain free." DR

"I have strength and resilience that no previous gym training has achieved, and with it a sense of empowerment and self confidence." ME

"Pilates has been a fantastic discovery for me. Years with an expert Personal Trainer helped overall fitness but did little to address various injuries and inherent traits in my physique. Pilates has improved both, in a way that conventional training cannot; my body is balanced and sports injuries that I have unknowingly carried for years are being dealt with. Very exciting! Louise has been great to work with, ever observant and always just demanding enough." PG

"I love the variety, I never get bored, each session is so individual." TM

"Louise has the ability to impart and create awareness in her pupils in a quiet and understated way, so that they develop accurate and intrinsic good posture while exercising and gaining fitness." PG

"Louise shows great aptitude, particularly for analyzing and breaking down a movement. Her understanding of spinal/pelvic/shoulder girdle alignment and posture is impressive." BP

"After breaking my arm in a snowboarding accident the medical opinion was that I needed surgery and 12 weeks recovery to get back to full strength. After just a few months of weekly Pilates sessions not only has my arm made a full recovery but I've increased my body strength massively. What's more, it's been the most fun exercise regime I've ever done!" NM
