Testimonials

"Jo is an amazing Pilates instructor! After seeing a few different instructors, my GP referred me to Jo. I'd had lower back pain for a few years and it was worsening with no proper diagnosis. After a few months of lessons, Jo was able to spot the problems in my back, and sent me back to the GP for further investigation.  After physio and other treatments, I was sent for an MRI scan. When I finally saw a specialist, he confirmed everything Jo had been saying for a year. Jo had picked up on all of the problems in my back,  just from observing me in the lessons.  The lessons with Jo are so personal.  She makes sure everybody is fully able and comfortable to do each exercise and will tailor alternatives as needed. Thanks to Jo's lessons I now have a better understanding of how my body works and reacts in everyday life. This has helped me to better manage my life according to my spinal issues. I honestly wouldn't know how I would have managed with my back pain without Jo and her amazing lessons."​Sarah B
