“Since starting Pilates several years ago I've noticed how the Floor and Studio Sessions seem to "put me back together" I always leave feeling taller, straighter, stronger and better aligned. All the instructors have their own style and each of them is excellent.” - Meredith
"I came to Pilates J about four years ago after knee surgery. After 10 sessions in the studio my leg was strong and very usable again. I was then ready for something more active but didn’t want to go back to sweaty gym classes. I joined the Pilates floor classes. I had a lot to learn, there is a science to Pilates and it is accurate and slow and the techniques need to be learned. In the classes which are small the instructor provides individual attention both verbally and physically to ensure you are moving correctly. I progressed well under expert tuition and started to really enjoy myself. I then progressed to twice weekly classes. There are a variety of teachers at Pilates J and each teacher provides different moves keeping the classes interesting and above all challenging, there are many moves I am yet to accomplish.
I have frequently cared for my newborn granddaughter, now 4, and Pilates has helped me immensely. At the beach I need to be able to get from sitting in the sand to standing, sometimes quite quickly, to assist a small person, Pilates has enabled me to do this. A crowning moment was when I was at a school fair and had to get into the playground quickly as I lost sight of my granddaughter. I had to step up to about a half meter wall into the playground. I did this in one leap hands free. The look on the young mans face next to me said it all, he was getting ready to help! I was 70. That is Pilates for you, strong legs and good balance.
Over the 4 years I have been at Pilates life has thrown its challenges at me and Pilates has meant more than exercise, it is a support group and a safe harbour. An escape if you like, your own space where you can recharge. Julie has followed our many family trajectories with concern and interest, a valued friendship. I have attended 4 Christmas parties with my Pilates family, an event not to be missed, a great group of people. And of course the gardens. Pilates on the lawn is just great in the summer. Pilates forever really, it is a form of health insurance. Thanks to Julie and all the instructors." - Anne
