Testimonials

  • "Kirsten's classes are relaxed, friendly and non-competitive. You are encouraged to work at your own pace, build up core strength and flexibility gradually and to apply the techniques learned to your everyday life. Since taking her classes my neck and shoulder problems have disappeared, and I have gained the core strength to work much longer in the garden!" Adelle Peterson, Bingley
  • I have been attending Kirsten's friday morning Pilates class for a year now. I have dropped a dress size and am a stone lighter! I never imagined at the ripe old age of 44 after three children that I would be wearing a bikini but this summer I did just that. The classes are the one thing I do for me, in the midst of a crazy busy life. I love the great bunch of people who attend, all ages shapes and sizes. I also have a hip problem, had it since birth, very painful, since attending Pilates I've noticed a real difference and I hardly take painkillers any more.
    I'm hooked now, totally agree with this quote from the man himself.
    In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a new body.” Joseph Pilates. Kate Kelly, Vogue
  • I have been with Kirsten for about six months now and my general health and well being have noticibly improved. Her careful tuition has made me feel 100% better than this time last year. I was then suffering from a trapped sciatic nerve in my right leg, also old knee problems, combined with fibro myalgia, which is now at a managable level.
    Keep up the good work Kirsten you are a real inspiration! Anne Turner, Shipley.

 

One of my clients is a full time carer for her mum who has dementia.
She came to my class to help with flexibility, good posture and strength as these are required in her role. Knowing that to learn pilates would take concentration and focus, she was concerned in case her stress and worries from her caring role would interfere with her ability to concentrate & learn the exercises. After about 6 sessions she stayed behind to tell me that much to her surprise she always managed to forget all about her daily worries and concentrate on the pilates exercises. She was therefore finding that the main benefit of coming to my class was the mental relaxation and relief from stress it gave her leaving her refreshed and ready to face the next challenge. She also said it had made her concentration outside the class improve aswell. She said she wanted to spread the word to others about the benefits of pilates to mental wellbeing not just the physical benefits.
