Give it a go - you'll love it!
Overall rating
I was very nervous about taking Pilates classes, having never done anything like it before (in fact, sport and fitness have never been my strengths!) but Laura soon put me at ease and I found that before long I was really enjoying myself! Her class caters to all abilities and she finds ways of helping everyone achieve the same stretches and holds, be it by using different size / strength equipment, or showing people how to do it slightly differently (e.g. to accommodate for injuries or just plain being unfit!).

Laura's enthusiasm is contagious - I would definitely recommend going along if you have never done it before, I'm sure you'll love it!
Top Marks for Tip Top Pilates!

Laura is a fantastic teacher! I have attended both mat and equipment classes with her over the last year and have had great results. While maintaining a professional approach Laura is really fun to work out with, incredibly friendly and has lots of energy and enthusiasm. She creates varied programmes which help you achieve your goals without getting bored of the same old routines and will motivate and challenge you when needed. As an added bonus Laura is also a great massage therapist and her skills are highly effective. My husband has been to see Laura a number of times to help with back and neck problems and her combined skills along with her knowledge has straightened him out in no time! I would highly recommend Laura.

I started Laura's Pilates mat classes about 6 weeks ago after I decided not to renew my membership at a well-known local spa. Her teaching is excellent - clear instruction, varied exercises, just the right amount of challenge - and fun. Laura is friendly, welcoming and capable of giving individual attention whilst keeping the lesson going for everyone. When I coached badminton - many years ago - I was always told that being well turned out wouldn't make me a good coach but that a good coach would be well turned out. Laura clearly knows this. She is thoroughly professional in her approach and in her personal presentation. She is also a well qualified, skilled and effective sports massage therapist. Highly recommended.

Tip Top Pilates are Tip Top Sessions!
Overall rating
Never knew getting fit could be so much fun! Laughter seems to be an essential part of the sessions, but always come out feeling more motivated, more flexible and with a smile on my face. And whilst many of us are at different levels in the class, Laura is able to tailor exercises to suit us all. Would thoroughly recommend Laura for 1-1 training as well as class mat sessions for beginners and experienced Pilates people alike.

On the occasions I have needed deep muscle massage, Laura has certainly been able to help. For someone so slight, she can sure deliver a depth of massage that is rare to find! Thanks, Laura - on all counts! :-)

Laura's sessions are Tiptop!
Overall rating
I would like to start by saying that Laura's personal Pilates practice is not only beautiful to watch but an example and role model of the quality of practice we should all expect from our Pilates Instructors. Together with all of her other skills and qualifications she is an allround bodyworker with immense skill. I currently do a regular mat class one evening a week and take a private session on the Reformer when I feel I need to. The classes are hard work but fun and the difference in the strength of my body and its ability to recruit the right muscles to move is quite amazing! Laura has a wonderfully sunny personality, reflected in her classes which are prepared well and very focused. In addition to Pilates, I also take advantage of Sports & Remedial Massage and Myofascial Release with Laura. She identifies problems with an uncanny instinct (and undoubted skill!) and I skip out the door every time feeling ready for my sport and the general sport of life.

A friend of mine recently said that she'd never met a Pilates instructor who could do all the exercises....and I think that may be many other people's experience as well. My recommendation? Try Laura. You won't regret it and your body will love you forever!
