Here's what you have to say about us:


"I recommend many patients to Pilates classes for beginners at The Studio. There is a gap between leaving an osteopath without pain and becoming truly fit and able to resume normal activities. Marcia and the teachers at the centre insist on working with small groups of clients. Under their knowledgeable guidance I believe Pilates is one of the quickest and safest ways to restore full function after injury. It certainly has helped me to continue in my work without any problems or pains, and I do not intend to stop Pilates. Ever."


Stacey Bourne -

Registered Osteopath

"I am glad I heard about Pilates. I am glad I joined a class. I wish I had done that years ago. I am glad Marcia was my first teacher. Marcia is knowledgeable, firm and tough but with a sense of perspective. She wants the best for everybody."


Anne Sevant -
retired teacher (age 63)

"I have been attending The Studio for some six months since my wife encouraged me to try Pilates. In my mid 50s, tall and round shouldered with a sedentary job, I have long suffered from low back pain.


I started coming once a week but now come twice weekly because of the real benefits the exercises are giving me. I feel better in myself, my back feels more mobile and I have much less pain. Most significantly, I feel I am doing something positive to help myself."


Ian Wayman

New Direction Pilates :: London & Essex :: Testimonials, What they say...

"Current medical research suggests that it is weakness and loss of control over the deep postural muscles that causes chronic low back pain. Pilates is a fantastic form of exercise that most definitely improves these muscles.


I use Pilates as part of my treatment and recommend it to all my patients suffering with back pain."


Daniel Smith -
Chartered Physiotherapist

"Having had two major spinal operations and having very little movement I found Pilates to be of enormous help in assisting me to move and regain some of my flexibility."


Sam Tabor -
School Teacher (age 29)

"Since attending Pilates classes at The Studio, my flexibility and balance have really improved. I have found the classes to be fun and relaxing, as well as good for strengthening my back!"
