What they say……..
MindOverMattress is not just a good idea…. (it) keeps the aches & pains at bay & provides me with physical, mental & relaxation strategies to ward off the effects of my rapidly ageing body. I feel mentally and physically more alive…. I also enjoy that there is no sense of competition as Lisa runs each class tailored to the individual & her specific needs & abilities….
The exercises are perfect for my age group & enough outside my comfort zone to be beneficial. Lisa varies the equipment & focus each week & with our group there is always a fun element. The class stimulates me to exercise further each week. I love the coffee, sharing & chat afterwards & consider this part of the experience of equal value to the exercise….
It’s special …… age wise we’re all ‘in the same boat’……. The program is so varied & interesting …….. lots of laughs & a very supportive group ….. & Lisa is a gifted & insightful trainer. I love the whole lot… stretching & testing my body ….. learning to accept some of my physical limitations at the same time as extending & building on what’s still possible…. coffee & chat afterwards – being ‘full of beans’ for the rest of the day ……
PILATES – MAT LEVEL 1 PILATES FOR WOMEN 60+

As a newcomer to Pilates and totally out of my comfort zone to join in a group activity I have found Lisa a wonderful instructor with no pressure but encouragement to assist me to my own comfort level.
Thank you for helping me fit in.
Sometimes taking the first step to exercise can be hard. As I entered the room Lisa welcomed meand my apprehension abated. Lisa encourages feedback inviting us to comment on how we experience particular exercises. This helps me a lot as I need affirmation that I am working the right muscles. Encouragement from class mates has been a great help to make the transition from newcomer to being part of the group. I continue to feel the benefit of the Pilates classes.

After attending your Pilates classes, held in a relaxing, caring and friendly environment, you have helped to re-balance and strengthen my body; remind me about the importance of exercising those inner core muscles and good posture.
The laughter shared with other members of the class is hilarious along with the occasional anatomy lesson. It is a delight attending your fun classes.
