Temporary Closure

In line with public health advice, RPW has taken the decision to close all Pilates classes with immediate effect. 

RPW will of course resume sessions as soon as it is safe to do so, in the meantime stay safe and healthy. Val


There are no classes the week beginning Monday 2nd March.

The new Spring course commences 9th March 2020.

There are still vacancies in Bromborough at Willaston Physiotherapy Centre.


Thanks also for being a brilliant Pilates teacher. I enjoy your classes so much. You are such a professional and always so upbeat, it’s a weekly treat to get away from everything else and breathe nicely.

“I was made to feel very welcome as a beginner into the class that was quite some time ago and I feel I have progressed so much week by week. Val gives clear instructions and easy to understand demonstrations and if needed gets you into the right positions which can really help. This means each week the Pilates elements are being put together in a precise way which is crucial to its success.

The stretches you get from simple positions are amazing. In a short space of time I feel I have improved both my core strength and my understanding of my own body positioning. This has led to my back feeling the best it has for a long while,  and I haven’t had any flare ups which used to occur before.

I’m definitely glad I chose Riverside Pilates and would recommend Pilates and Riverside Pilates to anyone.”

“I can’t recommend Val’s classes highly enough. I’ve been going for a couple of years now, and they’ve been a great benefit physically, but have also given me a huge boost to my confidence as Val is a really encouraging and inclusive teacher. As someone who started off with a whole load of physical limitations, I’ve never felt so well supported – and that’s just brilliant! ”

“Amazing Classes… Great informal atmosphere but technically brilliant Pilates group sessions…

Val keeps her classes to a size which means that she is able to (and does) ensure that everyone in the class knows what they should be doing and also that they are doing all the exercises safely and efficiently.

Val tailors her teaching to ensure that those from beginners up to advanced are able to challenge themselves and improve week by week.”

If only I had more time, I would love to join in more classes each week.”
