What our clients have to say...

  • " I just wanted to tell you how much my mobility has improved and that I have been able to reduce the amount of pain relief for my back problem since I have been coming to your Pilates class at Norden Farm. Thank you considering all of our various ailments and for explaining the exercises so clearly. " Norden Farm client, April 2014

  • " 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

  • " I thought you might be interested in my feedback from your Pilates class. After every lesson, I feel energised and have a lovely relaxing feeling afterwards. Thank you for your friendly classes. I think you are a fantastic teacher. I look forward to your lessons every week. The best thing I have done this year. " JB

  • " This is a surprisingly thorough book, packed with practical advice. It will prove invaluable for anyone who wants to enjoy consistently high energy levels and the simple pleasure of feeling great. " Clive Lewis, Managing Director, Illumine Training

  • " To be honest I have been delighted with the results that I have achieved in Gillian’s class in such a short space of time. I was suffering with lower back pain when horse riding as I became tired and my back always held me up due to my lack of core. After 3 weeks my lower back niggles were only during my riding lesson and not for 2 days afterwards. This just gets better all the time. My instructor was amazed at how much noticeably better my riding has become. Thank you, Gillian! The classes are fun and varied, too. " Norden Farm, Maidenhead

  • " 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! " Dr Steven Boorman, Chief Medical Adviser, Royal Mail Group

  • " 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. " Nicky Atterwell, Executive Resourcing Manager, Group Human Resources, HSBC

  • " I have always felt the benefits of regular Pilates exercise on my overall health and well-being. However, I did not expect my doctor's findings at a recent health review. She mentioned that I had 'grown' by half a centimetre and that the curvature of my spine has straightened and lengthened over the past couple of years. All thanks to Pilates! " Client from group classes in Taplow, May 2014

  • " Gillian has produced a 'gem' of a book - ensuring that a subject which, on face value, appears horrendously complex becomes easily understood and one that the reader can't wait to put into practice. I particularly enjoyed the cookie story! " Gail Scott, Senior Manager, HSBC

  • " I was about to give up playing the cello due to shoulder pain but thanks to Pilates with Gillian plus my sissel cushion, not only am I not giving up but I'm thinking of buying a new cello! " Maidenhead client

  • " It has been some years since I did Pilates, but now after a year of beginning again I am feeling so much better! It really helps with my well being, both physically and mentally. " Norden Farm client, 2016

  • " We have tried out some of the suggestions, the department, not only looks different, but the staff seem happier as well. "

  • " For eighteen months I had been suffering from sciatica and had difficulty standing and walking. Following a recommendation to try Pilates and a statement that Gillian was a very good tutor, I joined her 'Beginners Pilates' class at Maidenhead's Norden Farm in September 2015. An MRI scan of my spine had shown stenosis and some spinal curvature; I had had a spinal injection which had not cured the problem; my doctor had suggested that I might apply for a 'disabled badge' for the car, but I just wanted to be able to walk again. I found that the Pilates improved my movement and made me feel better so that a return visit to my osteopath in January was much more successful. I have now added some of the Pilates exercises to my daily exercise routine and am able to stand straight, walk and feel generally much better, thanks in great part to Pilates. " Shirley, May 2016

  • " I attend Gillian's pilates class regularly and have seen a great improvement with my posture and my stiff and often sore back... In my line of work as a Foot Health Professional, I do a lot of bending and carrying heavy bags in and out of the car putting a lot of strain on my back and knees. Gillian has shown me how to improve my core and suggested exercises to help me on a daily basis. She offers a very personal service and always makes sure that you are doing the exercises correctly and at your own pace. I can highly recommend Gillian and she is a lovely, warm, approachable and professional person who is always very interested in your well being and making sure that you reach your true potential. " Private client, Taplow, April 2014
