What our clients have to say...

  • The NLP Pocketbook is a true gem of a text. It is beautiful in its simplicity and at the same time impressively comprehensive. Well organised and easy to read, the NLP Pocketbook takes the reader on a pragmatic and useful journey through the 'best of NLP'. It is a wonderful overview and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in NLP.

    Robert Dilts, NLP Author and Trainer

  • It has been a pleasure getting to know Gillian and John over the last 4 ½ years, so a great shame to see you move away. I will miss my weekly class hugely. I’d like to say that I am now finely tuned as a result of your classes. I am better tuned that I have been in a long time and have enjoyed being pushed by John, amongst some great company.
  • I took up Pilates with Gillian Burn and John Spencer eleven years ago for one hour per week following major back surgery. I am pleased to say I have had no problems since, I feel and move so much better. Pilates is now part of my life with a big reward for a small amount of time used.

  • Good health and fitness is often taken for granted - a few simple steps can make a real difference to maintaining a happy and healthy life for the future. This pocketbook gives practical and clear advice, in an easily understood format - a few minutes reading and following it will reduce the need to meet a doctor in the future!

  • We were delighted with the Attendance Management seminars held throughout the country, providing advice and guidance to our managers on the management of sickness absence. We received excellent feedback and the programme helped to raise awareness of the importance and financial impact of absence throughout the Bank.

  • Several years ago I was encouraged by my daughter to join Gillian's pilates class. I had a bad back and the beginnings of osteoarthritis in my hip. After a few months I was more flexible, my bad back was better, and has stayed in good shape, and my hip has not deteriorated. Exercises can be performed at different levels, depending on one’s fitness and expertise and each class is good fun. I can highly recommend Gillian's classes. She is a great teacher.

  • I am 58 years of age and in reasonable physical condition. I am really a beginner, but after my first few classes with Gillian at Norden Farm (Maidenhead), I already noticed some very positive changes: Firstly, following an inner ear infection a few years ago, my balance had never really recovered. For example when getting dressed I have had to sit down in order to put on knickers or trousers as I could not balance on one leg. After just half a dozen classes I noticed big improvements in my balance, and I can now hop around to put on my underwear like I used to do years ago! Secondly, I have noticed that I am getting stronger especially when standing up out of a low seat. Previously I found I was having to push myself up using my arms, whereas now I can just stand up. Thirdly, I have noticed much more flexibility in my neck and shoulders, especially when driving I can turn to look further over my shoulder at those tricky junctions. Each of these positive changes are very tangible improvements in my wellbeing (balance, core strength and flexibility), and I am a total convert to Pilates as you have been teaching it, and I look forward to further positive changes. Thank you.
