Clare is a very qualified professional Pilates instructor, but what I like most is her inclusiveness, non-judgemental and reassuring approach with empathy – she loves what she does and it shows” Ingrid, Pilates, graduated May 2018

“I have tried many pilates classes over the years but never felt I was given enough guidance to hold the positions correctly and was worried I would damage my spine. My first class with Clare was completely different – she explained clearly, demonstrated well and corrected mistakes sympathetically, so you still felt encouraged to carry on”
