I am in my 20’s. I always loved running, cycling and power sports but avoided core strengthening and was becoming weaker and stiffer. It was then I started Pilates with Judy. 30 sessions later, I feel like I have a stronger more balanced body. I have learned a new skill that I can do at home on my own and will keep me from injury in the future. Judy’s enthusiasm and positive attitude is infectious, and the praise is good for the soul! I can recommend without reservation an hour a week with Judy to everyone, nurturing the body and soul.
I am a fit 60+ year old lady and I play badminton, go hiking and exercise regularly at my gym. I was introduced to Pilates a number of years ago when my daughter trained and qualified as an instructor in The New York Authentic Pilates Method at the Surry Hills Studio in Sydney. Every time I had an extended holiday in Sydney, I attended the studio as much as I could and I experienced several different instructors. My regret was that I was not able to continue, apart from mat work at home, when I returned to the UK. Imagine my delight to discover Judy, who is a qualified Authentic Pilates instructor, just 10 minutes drive from my home in Winchester. I have now practiced Pilates with Judy for over a year at her lovely well-equipped studio. She is always enthusiastic and welcoming. She puts me through a strict regime with skill and professionalism and I always leave feeling fully motivated and looking forward to my next session. My original aim was to improve core strength, flexibility, posture, body alignment and toning. Judy is helping me to achieve all these. I would have no hesitation in recommending Judy to anyone who is prepared to work hard to achieve their goals.
I am a 50 year old male who was diagnosed with ankylosing spondilitis in my back two years ago. One of the important things in keeping this kind of arthritis from getting worse is a good physio-therapy and exercise regime. I have found working with Judy in her Pilates Studio to be very helpful in keeping my back from becoming stiff and inflexible. I have gained a greater degree of strength and mobility in working with her on a set of Pilates exercise that are focused on the areas of my body that are being affected by this disease. Judy is a very professional and capable instructor who also works gently and with an awareness of the potential for injury for clients like myself.
I have been coming to Judy’s Pilates classes for nearly 18 months now, and have tracked significant improvements in my flexibility, core-strength and posture. A shoulder problem I had for years has entirely disappeared, as have all the other small aches I had thought were just the side-effects of ageing. Judy leads the most fantastically focussed and complete workout. She is incredibly observant,and has helped me gradually develop my technique to get the most out of the exercises. Judy creates the most wonderfully calm and enjoyable atmosphere every week, and I always finish a class feeling I simply couldn’t have used the hour better.
I have done many types of exercise classes from Boot Camps to Yoga but this far exceeds others in terms of strengthening with out injury, yet it’s hard work. Judy is a great instructor and Authentic Pilates is an investment in your well being which you can’t afford to miss.
