Group and Online Pilates Testimonials

"As an Osteopath, I understand the need for the body to remain strong and well balanced in order to help maintain health. I recommend my patients to Jane because she too understands these principles and is so effective in implementing them in her pilates sessions. This ensures that participants feel well looked after and attain the best outcomes. I have attended a couple of times and intend to go as much as possible. I couldn't recommend Jane highly enough!"

Adam Riley

Osteopathist - Osteo Resolve, Folkestone

“I started online Pilates with Jane during the Covid19 lockdown. I wanted to be able to gain more mobility in my back and strengthen my core and pelvic floor. Jane is fantastic and explains each movement with careful consideration to each participant and their goals. She has helped me improve my mobility in my back and demonstrated how each movement can also strengthen my core and pelvic floor. I am noticing improvement in just a few weeks and would highly recommend her.”

Christine Andrews

Advanced Pilates Masterclass (Rockin' Rollers)

“An excellent masterclass, where verbal cues and teaching points ensured that all participants stayed safe and were able to carry out the moves with ease, and were able to work at the level which best suited their ability and level of fitness. It was delivered in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, making it fun to participate.”

Carol Boughton (Pilates Instructor)

Advanced Pilates Masterclass (Rockin' Rollers)

“This session was quite an education. Who would have thought that a roll of foam could be so versatile and effective for stretching and working the muscles. I think the extra height often made it easier to do the exercises for some reason. Thank you very much. This was very helpful, Jane.”

Katherine robinson

Advanced Pilates Masterclass (Rockin' Rollers)

“This class meant that I needed to really concentrate which meant that I was able to completely switch off from all other thoughts during the hour and a half I was there. I felt challenged but in a positive way as I was able to do much more that I had anticipated giving me a huge sense of achievement.”

James Beston

One to One Pilates

“My good news is that I had my biennial DXA scan which usually shows a decline in bone density. But this time it has actually shown a small increase for the first time! I put it down to the strengthening exercises in Pilates. “You are doing such good work, and our granddaughters still shout ‘Pilates’ when we visit!”

Maud Matley

One to One Pilates

“Since starting Pilates with you I feel much better when I go walking, and feel taller as well. I haven’t felt this good since I was forty!”

Mike Petty

One to One Pilates

“Thank you so much for the information and routines. It was great to meet you, and thank you for taking the time with my two children. It was a really positive experience for them, and they were tricky customers beforehand, but both enjoyed it and understand much more about the benefits.”

Sophie Richardson

Family group Pilates

“This week, I experienced my first 1 to 1 with Jane and found it very beneficial. After analysing my body and it’s abilities, we tried a variety of exercises and stretches, making sure my posture was correct! She was able to concentrate on my issues and worked out a custom routine which I am excited to try! Now Jane understands my body, I will book another session when we’ll work through an entire routine. Thank You Jane…highly recommended!”

Jane

One to One Pilates

“I had my first one to one with Jane today. She was most informative with the exercises which will benefit my back, stomach muscles and posture.
She also emailed me all of the exercises to make sure I don’t forget. I felt very comfortable in her company and I am looking forward to starting classes to progress with the Pilates.”

Megan Stone

One to One Pilates

“Jane is so friendly and knowledgeable, and speaks clearly (as I’m partially deaf it really helps) with individual help. Pilates has really helped stretch my piriformis pelvic muscle. I would not recommend anyone else. I cannot fault Jane, she really is the best teacher.”

Janice Lucas

One to One Pilates

“I really enjoy Jane’s Pilates classes but having recently had a knee replacement I have also had Jane come round and do a one to one session at home, she is so professional and patient and has given me some great exercises and stretches to help improve my recovery and speed up my return to normal activities. I can’t wait to get back to my regular class, I love that her enthusiasm has inspired me to enjoy Pilates so much.”

Tracy Rogans

One to One Pilates

“Jane came to my house for me an my husband to see what Pilates is all about, as both of us understood the benefits that these movements could give us as we have a few niggley pains! She explains an demonstrates very well to make sure the moves are carried out correctly! I’ve since started attending the Wednesday morning class 11.30 in Folkestone, and will hopefully continue to do so! Very friendly class an tutor.”

Mandy Oclee

One to One Pilates

“Thank you, Jane, for the expert pilates instruction you provided prior to my skiing holiday. The four one-to-one sessions were immensely helpful. I appreciate that you tailored a programme specifically to get me ready for my ski holiday. Not only did you spend the hour providing instruction, but you also kindly provided written details of all the necessary moves. This reference source is, and has been, invaluable. Your instruction meant that I went skiing with a stronger core and better balance after just three weeks’ work-up. I was able to ski for longer and with more confidence. I had no significant falls or accidents and firmly believe that this is directly attributable to my improved balance, strength and flexibility, thanks to your help. Thank you from Belinda (the happy and flexible skier)!”

Belinda Stuart-Moonlight

One to One Pilates

“Having osteoporosis meant that I needed a specialist one-to-one session to gain advice on safe ways to participate in Pilates. I found Jane very enthusiastic and knowledgeable (see her list of qualifications!) She was able to guide me through methods of adapting Pilates exercises so that I now feel comfortable and confident that I will benefit greatly from Pilates without taking any unnecessary risks. Highly recommended to anyone in a similar position.”

Elaine Savage
