Success Stories

Beth’s approach was what I was looking for….I’m so happy we can continue online and I make sure I never miss these valuable sessions.

“I was looking for a safe way to improve my fitness without making my joints, back and neck pain worse. From the trial session I knew that Beth’s approach was what I was looking for, I feel safe and cared for.  Our classes are tailored to my individual needs. I feel so much better now, my posture improved, I feel more connected to my body. And I keep improving all the time.

She is a good listener and has an endless patience, we had to slow down our sessions to do baby steps so my pain wouldn’t return. That is the joy to be able to finally feel fitter and without pain. 

During the lockdown we moved online and I did not feel much difference, it feels as relaxing as if I’m in the studio. I’m so happy we can continue online and I make sure I never miss these valuable sessions!”

I had my doubts that a virtual Piliates session would actually provide the same benefits as a face to face session with Beth in Beth’s fab studio. How wrong was I?!

I had my first virtual session earlier today and hand on my heart, my session exceeded my expectations. I will let the results do the speaking now…at the start, my neck and lower back was not happy. After a solid hour of tailored exercises – I was moving freely and planking with a smile.
 
My session was fun, educational (I used my dining table to elongate my back!) and above all else, my body is happy once again
Thank you so very much Beth. I’m looking forward to my next session already : )”

Since starting to work with Beth,  I feel physically stronger and fitter and mentally better too.

“Having issues with my back, shoulder and hip and wanting to generally improve my fitness, strength and toning, I had been considering Pilates for a while – but making excuses not to do it! I’ve tried Pilates in the past but had bad experiences so avoided it. 

Although initially apprehensive, Beth’s Taster Session seemed an ideal way to try again. Very quickly I knew Beth was the instructor for me.  She instinctively understood my  physical issues and made me feel comfortable and safe.  She is a wonderfully supportive, encouraging and empathetic teacher and tailors every class to me – not just my ability but also how I am feeling that day. Beth ensures classes are challenging but achievable which makes them enjoyable and leaves me striving for more, rather than dreading them as had happened in the past. The fundamental foundation of Beth’s ethos is that she genuinely wants to help people to achieve the best possible results and to feel better.

Since starting to work with Beth,  I feel physically stronger and fitter and mentally better too. On top of now really enjoying Pilates I have found a true friend in Beth which has been a great added bonus. I highly recommend Beth!

The best thing is I’ve found an instructor to work with to help me address my challenges, and smile whilst I’m doing it

“I was experiencing back pain and the doctor had told me to do Pilates, but I was nervous about going to classes and not getting the moves right and hurting myself…and scared about being the “worst’ in class! 1:1 is intense, so I was hoping I’d get on well with Beth from a chemistry perspective – and I did! Beth has a thoughtful style and made me feel 100% comfortable. She took time to understand my needs and inspired me with her own Pilates journey. The best thing is I’ve found an instructor to work with to help me address my challenges, and smile whilst I’m doing it.”

After having an hour long session with Beth, my upper back became less tense and the pain was gone.

“I have always struggled with neck/upper back issues and my neck gets so tense that sometimes I find myself unable to rotate my neck and shoulders which negatively affects my posture and my ability to keep my back straight. When I came to see Beth, my neck and shoulders were really tense…..Her extensive knowledge and passion for Pilates is infectious and she’s very approachable, attentive and considerate.

She instantly put me at ease, listening to my concerns and what I was hoping to achieve from Pilates and her lovely private studio makes you want stay there for hours…..Beth is extremely supportive and encouraging and the whole experience working with her was a pure joy. After having an hour long session with Beth, my upper back became less tense and the pain was gone. On my way home I felt very relaxed and energised”.…

The targeted exercises drastically reduced my back and neck pains and I saw a significant improvement in my overall strength.

“I had been experiencing a sore upper back and neck on a regular basis for a while, mainly due to bad posture at work, and was desperate to do something to improve my well-being. I was already familiar with Pilates and its potential benefits, but had had mixed experiences with teachers, and in recent years had struggled to find a studio Pilates teacher I could truly engage with. 

As I already knew Beth in a different context I did not have any reservations about working with her on a personal level, although I did slightly worry about any awkwardness that might ensue if her teaching style did not suit me. I needn’t have worried! I really enjoyed working with Beth, as she found the perfect balance between targeting the areas I needed help with and challenging me to push myself further and improve my practice. I had always enjoyed Pilates, but working with her made me engage with it in a new way and truly discover my passion for it. The relaxed and supportive atmosphere in her studio also definitely helped! 

The targeted exercises drastically reduced my back and neck pains and I saw a significant improvement in my overall strength. This meant I was able to start swimming proper laps again, which had always been a big part of my life but which I’d  stopped a few years earlier due to the pain in my neck and shoulders when doing breast stroke for any length of time.  And I also gained my new love of pilates of course!

Beth keeps me going, both physically and mentally. I come regularly… and I don’t feel the dread that you can sometimes feel before an exercise session. Love it!

“I see pilates as a way of having a massage without the hands on.  I needed some headspace and doing pilates does that for me. The physical aspect of pilates is secondary to the mindfulness of doing pilates for me. 

I have been practising pilates for 17 years, and already had my favourite teachers, Beth was being compared to teachers I have loved and practised with for years. Additionally I had only done matwork classes  in the past so the machines were all new to me.  

Beth lived up to the comparison of my previous teachers.  I need a session each week, it isn’t a want.   I have a fairly active life and Beth keeps me going, both physically and mentally.  She gauges what I am feeling from the moment I walk through the door and the lesson is tailored for me, they can be challenging, relaxing, stretching depending on my needs at that moment. I come regularly… and I don’t feel the dread that you can sometimes feel before an exercise session. Love it!”

The best part of the Taster session was that I felt the start of something that will help me immensely, and i got me so excited to have more pilates sessions with her!

“Before the Taster with Beth I had only taken one pilates class before, so I had an idea of how helpful it could be for my scoliosis. Other than that I took few yoga classes and exercises but it was never continuous, which was the problem. I had no reservations about working with Beth, I was searching for a one to one pilates session as I believed that I needed specific help, and when I saw her website it felt right. Also, the fact that the studio was so near my own home, made everything even better. She really listened to my problems and why I needed individual sessions, I felt understood, and safe. Making sure at every step I was not pushing too far she was so caring. The best part of the Taster session was that I felt the start of something that will help me immensely, and it got me so excited to have more pilates sessions with her! She had so many ideas and ways that could improve not only my scoliosis but also give strength to my entire body, which made me happy.”
