I've attended Gill's Pilates classes over the past year. As I have had some health problems, I felt confident with Gill's knowledge and experience, along with her ability to treat people as individuals - Antoinette Edge
I suffer sporadic back pain due to a severe back injury incurred many
years ago which eventually put an end to my dance career. So a change of
career was undertaken and after stating I would never sit behind a
desk, I have recently retired from sitting behind a desk as a Civil
Servant. During those none dancing years I continued to keep fit but
that slowly fell by the way side when a busy job and home life took over
and then diagnosed with Crohn's disease had to have quite a horrible
abdominal operation. Now retired and wanting to keep fit but taking
into account my very sensitive back and stomach I already knew Pilates
was for me having done regular Pilates during my dance career. So now I
had to find a really good Pilates teacher with years of experience under
their belt, excellent references and hopefully not too far to travel
to. After much research, I found one , Gillian. I got in touch and went
to a few of her classes and found she really knew her stuff, shes very
experienced with an excellent teaching style, serious and funny, yet
very aware of everyone's individuals problems in her classes. I'm now a
devotee and regular of Gills classes .
I highly recommended gills Pilates classes no matter what age or size you are.
