I have been coming to the Studio for about a year and am working with the team, who I can’t recommend highly enough. I had always had a rounded back through years of bad posture, and had given up wearing fitted clothes because they always emphasised the shape of my back. Thanks to being shown the right exercises and practising them regularly at home, I have seen an amazing improvement in my posture which I had not believed possible at the age of 62! Perhaps best of all, I can now spend hours at the piano without backache, something I had not been able to do since studying music at college over thirty years ago. When I recently had to ease back into Pilates after two debilitating operations, they gave me so much more than just Pilates instruction; with a combination of extraordinary professionalism, enthusiasm, warmth and encouragement, she showed me how to get back to exercising in safe and appropriate ways. Although I wish I had found The Clinical Pilates Studio sooner, I am just delighted to have learnt that it really is never too late to improve your posture or to learn how to stay supple for the years ahead.
