Success Stories

My prolapse symptoms are not only improved, I have taken up running again   -   V. B,   Edinburgh 

After 20 years of minor incontinence I had just accepted that this was my lot.  After one term of women's health classes with Fiona I no longer plan my life around staying close to the loo and am loving it.   -   G. T,  Edinburgh 

 

Fiona's women's health classes seem really gentle but I feel much stronger even my advanced pilates classes feel much easier    -    G. R,   Edinburgh 

Fiona was the first Pilates teacher I have worked with who tackled my neck injuries head on.  For years I would take to my bed several times a week.  I rarely get headaches now, when I do they are not as bad.  Best of all I join in with activities with my children I wouldn't have thought possible three years ago   - H. J,  Stirling

Love ❤️ Your Feet

Our feet form the foundation of our body they provide us with a contact point to the ground and adaptable balanced base from which we move.  From this point our feet can influence our overall alignment and the health of joints all the way through the body - for example knees and hips.  Yet most of our foots life is spent in a cast (shoes) I am in no way saying don’t wear shoes, however, we need to know how to keep our feet mobile and strong to keep them healthy and doing their job well.

These are small group workshops with a maximum of eight people.
