“ Pilates is about becoming aware of how you move and being positive about the possibilities. Training in structural integration and movement development has given me the diagnostic skills to guide you out of old habits and help you overcome injuries. Even if your movement is limited I will encourage you to do what you can, I am inspired by the way the Pilates method can accommodate everyone”
“Simone is a wonderful Pilates teacher who has helped me tremendously in getting my body back into balance and out of pain. Her knowledge, skills and awareness of the mechanics of the body are excellent and she has exactly the right amount of patience and care I needed to help me regain confidence in my body. I highly recommend Simone, whether you are looking for a workout or to help with specific issues”
"I just want to thank you for the Pilates session last Friday morning. I had a pulled muscle which you identified. You reassured me that I would be on the mend in a matter of days. That has been the case. The work I did on the equipment was invaluable and the couple of exercises that you gave me to do for homework have also been beneficial. I shall continue with those"
"Simone is an extremely talented & knowledgeable teacher. She is intuitive & very skilled at assessing her clients & adapting the exercises to suit their personal needs. Her calm manner & clear instruction make time spent in her care relaxing & enjoyable & the benefits from attending her classes cannot be over-stated. Simone first worked with me following a severe lower back injury & despite my level of pain & distress, I very quickly felt in safe & secure hands. Over time she has helped me return to good mobility & a life free of pain & for that I will always be grateful. Simone is not only a great Pilates instructor, but a genuine healer; I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone"
"One of the things I really love about your class is that I find I have no space in my mind to think of work/life things while doing your class each Thursday evening. It’s a great switch off for the end of my working week which I am enjoying very much"
