Thanks Lou - really enjoying being able to mix up sessions and do a combo of barre, tower, studio and reformer classes. And now....Sunday classes.....loving it! It's great to get feedback and corrections throughout class as it means we're continually improving and really appreciate the cues you provide as they're super helpful.
When I'm tired or creaky with fatigue and age, Lou picks me up and brings me back. I always leave my classes feeling a few inches taller and a lot more agile, fresher, -- and somehow happier with life.
I'm a natural sloucher and my posture was terrible. I couldn't even sit up straight. Bar stools were not my friend! Since taking sessions with Lou my posture has improved no end and my core is a lot stronger too. People have even been asking me if I've grown....which is not likely at my age!
The best Pilates ever with the best teacher. Love it!
Loving the mix of classes, combining pilates and barre. Love love love!
Amazing session, I learnt today that Pilates is not just about stretching.
Loved it! Lou is amazing. She explains everything perfectly so you know you are making the most of your time with her.
I started Pilates having endured 10 months in an uncomfortable back brace because of a displaced vertebrae. Lou and her team now have me walking, out of pain, and even playing golf again (albeit still badly)!
Before I started Pilates I suffered from a sore back resulting in poor sleep. Pilates has built my strength, flexibility and made an enormous difference to my back and my sleep.
I started Pilates with Lou after dislocating my knee in a surfing accident. After just a couple of sessions both my strength & range of movement had improved dramatically. Lou gets to know your body and teaches you how to get the little details right so you get the full benefit. I really enjoy my sessions with Lou, they are both physically challenging & mentally relaxing after a hard day at work. My whole body is more toned which makes me feel great and gives me much more energy than I had before.
I have osteo-arthritis in the spine and hips and previous attempts at Pilates resulted in increased pain and discomfort. Lou, however, is a talented instructor and has been able to patiently and gradually increase the range of exercises without aggravating the condition. My posture has improved and I am now able to walk much further without experiencing pain. I also feel much healthier.
I recently gave birth to my second child and can say my mind and body was able to cope positively to the labour and the pain by using my breathing techniques that I have learnt though Pilates. My body has already started to return to my pre-pregnancy shape and my muscles are starting to crave additional classes.
