As a guy joining a class on my own, I felt a bit intimidated but having suffered with my back when running, I was willing to give anything a try! Anna was brilliant and immediately put me at ease and I was not the only bloke in the class to my relief. The exercises on the runner/cycling sessions are perfect for me. There are options to increase the level if you fancy a challenge (or not if you struggle just standing on one foot like me in first few sessions �). Nothing is meant to be painful and Anna gives you tips or alternatives if the exercise is a problem for you. The introduction of the 1kg green balls last night was a good variation too. Highly recommended!
The classes are really relaxed and comfortable. Anna gives you more challenging versions of moves if you want to progress or she finds alternatives moves if you can't manage them. She makes sure you're doing it properly and I can really feel it working after just a few classes.
I have been going to the Pilates classes for a few months now and they are fantastic! I have a problem with my lower back and the classes are really helping me strengthen my core and stay mobile!
I suffer with fibromyalgia and it has helped me so much. Anna adapts her Pilates to all needs, so good for all !! I've been going for a year and my core strength has improved massively. wish I'd done it years ago !
I'm only 24 and a bag of bones already. I'm very prone to chronic pain in back/hips and I've tried 2 other pilates classes that were meant to be geared toward 'restorative' and 'healing' pilates, and each time I came out hurting badly, feeling like a failure, and outclassed by elderly people 3 times my age. My osteopath suggested trying again with a different instructor, as she truly felt I could get improvements from pilates if it's done right. Third times the charm! Cannot praise this class enough. I asked for recommendations for a physio led pilates over Facebook, and too my delight this one was local to me in Orsett. It's set in a lovely quaint village hall, the instructor is very sympathetic, knowledgeable, and talented, and the pilates is a perfect mix between relaxing and challenging. I had a private class with Anna before starting classes, where we talked in depth about my medical history, needs, and goals, and she assessed what level I was at. I feel in very good hands with this instructor, and I'm enjoying the classes so much I'm looking forward to them every week. I've been for several weeks and can already feel a difference in my day to day life and have identified muscles and positions that will be key in getting me back on track. The class has really boosted my confidence and wellbeing. 5 * all the way.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Anna's Pilates classes. I have a knee injury and have seen a huge improvement since going to the classes, I wish I'd have known about the classes sooner!
Fantastic physio run Pilate's classes.....turn up with an ache or pain and exercises can be tailored to suit....overall a great class
I had been suffering with constant sciatica from my back condition for years.... I say "had" as only after 3 months of Pilates under Anna's tuition that constant nagging ache has gone!...... Pilates has not only improved my core strength and posture it had made me a much happier person from not being in constant pain...... Anna's classes are friendly and different every time and her calm relaxing manner makes me look forward to Thursday evening every week. Thank-You Anna x
I have been attending Anna's Pilates classes now for quite some time and I absolutely love them! She is outstanding and always supports you with your learning. She has made my core and back super strong which is so important to me as a triathlete! Thank you so much!
It was such a good class either on its own or as part of a regular fitness programme. I felt the class work me on its own and was amazing in relieving muscles after I had worked hard on them in the days prior to my Pilates class. Anna gave varying levels of exercise so it was suitable for everyone and really is a class for anyone
