“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 thy 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.”

N. Travers - Lawyer

“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.”

“Since starting Pilates with Val over 3 years ago, my back pain and sciatica have been so much better. I had tried Pilates and yoga several times in the past but the difference with Val is her attention to detail, ensuring all moves are done correctly and the right muscles are being used.  Also no chance of cheating! She has a hands-on approach and her explanations and demonstrations are carefully considered and delivered with a great sense of humour, making for really enjoyable classes.”
