“I joined ‘Live & Breathe Pilates’ Fit for Life class about a year and a half ago.
Best thing I ever did!!
Live & Breathe have outstanding instructors and teachers who are deeply committed to Pilates and hugely knowledgeable. They have an eagle eye and watch over us, which helps massively for our technique. They have an exceptional ability to incorporate our current aches and pains into their class plan and by the end of class those specific ills will have been helped no end.
The studio is driven by their commitment to their clients(us) and a commitment to transmitting Pilates at it’s best. This commitment also leads them to organise frequent and varied workshops, always excellent and worthwhile.
Classes are small, great fun (we laugh a lot) hard work and very varied. Invariably, I come out more energised, more flexible and more positive. Interestingly, any time I have gone to class feeling unwell or below par, I finish feeling physically and mentally much better.
Pilate classes at ‘Live & Breathe’ have improved my flexibility, my strength and my balance very significantly. Best of all, since I started my injuries have pretty well disappeared. (I play tennis, not well but enthusiastically, and always seemed to have at least one injury on the go). Now I live in a state of bliss !!
The studio itself is central and a very pleasant space, exceptionally well equipped, and lovely to work in.” Alil, March 2015
“It gives me great pleasure to recommend Live & Breathe Pilates where I have been taking classes for 18 months now. The studio is bright, airy and well equipped and the instructors are extremely personal, professional and committed to achieving their client’s goals. As a result of attending the weekly sessions I feel less stressed, more flexible and generally healthier. In fact I now feel several years younger than my 58 years”. Tom D
“I’m in my mid-fifties and spend more time than I should crunched over a computer. A few years ago my back went from being a bit niggly to being a serious and continual pain. It affected my work, my temper, my self-confidence, the lot. Pilates isn’t a quick fix but it does work. I feel so much better. Steph is a marvelous teacher, calm and encouraging. The classes are a real pleasure. I always walk away with a spring in my step.” Melissa Murray
“In late 2009 I started to experience back pain. I spent most of the Christmas 2009 lying horizontally – the only pain-free position I could discover. Early in 2010 I was directed to Steph and her Pilates exercises by my physiotherapist. From my first session on the Reformer I felt better. And the improvement in my core strength and flexibility have banished the back pain. I now try and have a weekly one-on-one session with Steph and can’t recommend her and Pilates too highly.” John R. Healy
“I began one to one Pilates classes a year ago and my quality of life has improved beyond measure. My back – the pain and its ability to collapse at anytime – directed everything I did or didn’t do. Steph and her Reformer have patiently worked on my core muscles, building them up so that in my everyday life, they engage and do the work my back did in the past. I feel fitter, look leaner and for the first time in 15 years feel in control. Pilates is for and will change everyone, even an overweight, extremely unfit 55 year old woman. Thanks Steph!” Phil Scully
