Testimonials

"I love coming to the classes, you are a brilliant teacher, the exercises are definitely helping with strengthening my back and core, also it’s been helping with my breathing and posture for when I’m singing in the choir I attend (Reading Barberettes – a female a cappella group)."  Linda Baugh, Woodley

"Pilates is making such a massive difference to my riding and I can't thank you enough!"  Suzy Turner, Hurst

“Being in my late sixties, Anne Holland’s Pilates teaching methods have significantly helped me to strengthen my back, improve my posture and flexibility, since starting her Pilates class two years ago.  I always look forward to attending my weekly class.”  Jenny Hele, Woodley

“I’ve only been taking Anne's Pilates classes for 6 weeks and I’m amazed with the results.  No longer do I have a stiff neck or tension in my shoulders - my back is more flexible and I feel more relaxed.  I have spent a fortune on massages and chiropractic treatments in the past and all I had to do was join Anne's class!  Anne has a wonderfully calm and positive manner, lessons are varied each week - sometimes using equipment - we never know what to expect.  I realise that I am still a novice but hope to continue to improve.  Thank you Anne, I count my lucky stars I found you!"  Marilyn Stanley, Woodley

“For me personally, I have had no real pain or discomfort with my lower back since starting Pilates, after having problems since my teens.  Also, I like the fact that I never feel under pressure, or that I have to 'compete' with anyone in the class, to be as good as them.”      M M, Woodley 

“Just wanted to say thanks for my 1:1 session yesterday.  My neck is so much better today - much less pain and a lot more movement.”   Jane Carr, Hurst

“Anne clearly knows her subject well giving clear instructions in a friendly way.  She tailors her Pilates classes to match ability and provides a pleasant way to awaken and strengthen one’s muscles!  There are opportunities to make movements more challenging and alternative exercises offered where needed.”  Janet Barber, Sonning

"Just a quick note to say thank you for all your wonderful classes.  I think you teach Pilates in an excellent way and I now put posture into an awareness that I did not have before."   Julia M, Shurlock Row

“Thank you for the classes, I find them very enjoyable and relaxing and am starting to feel a difference.”   Janet M, Woodley

“Very unfit and with a dodgy back and shoulder, I eventually gave in to doctor's suggestion and daughters' nagging and reluctantly joined this Pilates class.  To my surprise I am enjoying each friendly session, where exercises are carefully explained, tailored to requirements and alternatives offered when necessary.  Hubby is delighted too in that I am now able to help a lot more in the garden!”  JC, Woodley

“I have been attending Anne’s Pilates classes regularly for the past few years as I suffer from lower back problems.  Anne is an excellent teacher and is very attentive to the individual needs and abilities of the class members.  The classes have been both enjoyable and a major help in minimising my back issues.”  Marc, Hurst
