"I’ve completed some of the post-natal classes with Alice over the past few weeks and can see differences in my strength and form already. She is very knowledgeable and encouraging and no two classes are the same which I love! I’m looking forward to attending her ‘in person’ classes post Covid."

"BEST PILATES CLASS EVER!!
I started postnatal pilates via zoom about 3 months ago with Alice as I had alot of lower back and hip pain which was really affecting my everyday life after having my 4th baby.
Initially I found Alice to be very client focused and enthusiastic, she discussed with me in detail what did I want to achieve from the class prior to me signing on.
3 months on, my hip and lower back pain is completely gone and I'm starting to feel so much stronger in my core.
Alice is very knowledgeable and passionate about pilates and makes sure to describe in detail every exercise, what impact it has on the body and correct my posture immediately if necessary.
Every class is different and dynamic and the class sizes are kept small to ensure that we get the most out of every class.
I would highly recommend Alice's classes to everyone!"

"Alice's classes are brilliant and tough. What I like is that she changes it from week to week and goes around the class to make sure we are all doing the exercises correctly - which is great for me as I have an injury. Alice is one of the best, very friendly, professional and she has a lovely way about her!"
