What Our Clients Say
I went to Loretta's classes to recover body strength after a huge weight loss and I can't believe how quickly I regain muscles but that's not all, within 5 sessions I also straightened my shoulders and hips and greatly improved my digestive system. My daily life as full time mum got seriously easier! Thank you to Pilates but also to Loretta who shows passion and dedication helping each of us individually reaching our potential without being pushy.
I've been doing a weekly class with Loretta now for over a year and a half and have found them really enjoyable with great tuition and personalised help. I'm still a beginner but am absolutely sure I'm improving and developing some core strength to help with some previous lower back issues. Would definitely recommend the classes, also the one to one apparatus sessions which are a real eye opener!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you for all your help getting me and my back better! I am so lucky to have bumped into you when I was suffering with excruciating lower back pain and I can’t believe how far I have come and the improvement pilates has made to my everyday life and the job I do which involves a lot of heavy lifting.
I can’t recommend the one to one sessions enough. You took the time to established what was causing the pain and what exercises would help to get the back better. You personalise each session to what stage I am in my recovery and what I have going on in my life at the time so that I can build the appropriate core strength, it also keeps the sessions interesting and fun.
It did take 3 - 5 sessions to locate the lower abdomen muscles or any muscles but we finally got there!!
Your enthusiasm for pilates and helping your clients get better makes me want to do the best I can in your class.
As I said earlier I was very fortunate to meet you when I did.
Thank you Loretta and I wish you all the best with your business.
p.s. I love your new studio it is like visiting a retreat every time.
