From the age of 8 I have been suffering with Musculoskeletal problems with my first surgery taking place on my 14th birthday. When I reached 21 I was told it would not be long before I was wheelchair bound. Not wanting to be defeated I sought out ways to improve my situation. Several surgeries and 2 decades later, with my pain no longer under control I needed a new plan. Everything I read told me to get fit, develop my …

I have attended Lynn’s Pilates classes for a couple of years after this form of exercise was suggested to me by a doctor after an illness that affected my breathing. I was initially hesitate to attend as I was linking Pilates to Yoga and was unsure if Pilates was for me. After my first sessions with Lynn I was sure her classes would benefit me. They are relaxed, focused sessions that are differentiated to the needs of the individual. Lynn’s …

Lynn is a very good teacher who explains what she wants the class to do for each exercise and gives us several different options for the exercises depending on individual’s capabilities and health issues. I am a bit paranoid about hurting my lower back, having had problems in the past, and she is able to suggest alternatives that I feel comfortable with. Lynn motivates me to go to her classes which I enjoy.

I have been attending Lynn’s Pilates classes for about a year for one or two sessions a week and I have noticed a number of definite improvements in my body condition over that time. My core strength is much stronger which helps with my horse riding and I can sit upright for longer periods without slouching. My stomach is flatter and my back muscles are stronger (and slimmer!), I fact my whole rib cage, back, upper arms and waist area …

I have been coming along to Lynn’s Pilates class for a few months now and can already feel the benefits. As someone who’s tall and has a desk job, I was getting lower back ache and with a family history of hip problems I can honestly say I feel the aches and pains are now minimal and I feel I can do so much more without the constant back ache. Great class, warm and friendly atmosphere.

“I have been going to Lynn’s Plates classes now for just over a year, at first I was pessimistic but to stop my wife nagging me I agreed to attend a few private classes. Because of work I spend a lot of time driving and sitting at a desk, as such I was suffering from back ache and knee problems. Lynn’s classes have put a stop to all of that. A few years ago I also had surgery for carpel …

Since my mid-forties I’ve suffered pain and mobility problems in my hips, facing, as I thought eventual hip replacement. However, at the age of 68, following x-rays showing “wear and tear” and lower back problem, my doctor suggested I try Pilates. I have seeing Lynn at Effective Pilates for some time now on a regular basis ad her knowledge of Pilates and its ability to address physical problems which occur throughout life, were obvious from my first visit. The exercises …

Hi Lynn. I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed your classes. From the moment I entered your class a year ago I knew immediately that this was the class for me. Your passion & enthusiasm for Pilates is so uplifting along with the care & detail you show towards your class members. I have benefited enormously from the exercises especially as I have had injuries to lower back & shoulders which I hasten to add are …

Lindy Milton, Brickendon

I have been attending Lynn’s pilates classes for approximately 18 months now and they have made a massive difference to my bank pain (pretty much non-existent now) and core strength. I used to get back problems every autumn when my horse started spending more time in the stable and thus more mucking out to do. Generally I would need to see my osteopath several times a year. Since starting the pilates classes I have had very little back pain and …
