Julie is an exceptional teacher. Her depth of knowledge enables Julie to meet people’s idiosyncratic needs. Pilates with Julie makes a real difference to us!

Julie’s enthusiasm and commitment to Pilates instruction is inspiring. Through the work I do with her in mat-based classes and one-to-one sessions, I have learnt huge amounts about my own body and how to keep it healthy. She knows exactly what level to take me to and I always feels that I have achieved something. She is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and the qualities she brings to a session make Pilates a joy to do. Classes have become an essential part of my life. She accepts all the difficulties people present with calm confidence, altering exercises for individuals as appropriate. Sessions are varied and fun often using a variety of small equipment. Over a three year period I had both my hips replaced and her preparation and rehab exercises made it possible for me to have a smooth and speedy recovery. No one is left to struggle and most importantly I feel safe in her hands.

As an Osteopath, I frequently see patients who have been in pain and recovered and would benefit from high quality Pilates instruction with an instructor who understands how to tailor their exercises to their needs. Julie is a thorough and knowledgeable Pilates instructor, who goes above and beyond industry requirements in training and continuous education to provide the very best for her participants. I would recommend anyone thinking of trying Pilates to contact Julie to see how she may be able to help them.

"There's never a feeling of "one size fits all" in Julie's group classes. Not only does Julie quickly learn and remember everyone's name she knows all our individual bodies to the tiniest detail, what we need to work on, how we might cheat(!), when we could push ourselves a little harder but also when we need to adapt or just be kind to ourselves. And if that isn't enough it's always worth coming to class for Julie's extraordinary imagery: dipping toes into puddles, wearing tiaras, manoevring arms into and out of tight sleeping bags (??)........ I could go on!!......but they're fun and they work!! Bottom line: I always feel better going out than coming into class." I have been attending Julie's classes for the last 5 years!

I'd like to say thank you so much for your wonderful foot workshop. I twisted my ankle over 4 years ago and had seen many practitioners. I learnt so much in your workshop. The thrill for me was recognising my proprioception through my lower leg was very poor and the strength of my muscles was weak. When I left your studio I felt balanced and comfortable in my gait and the following few days gave me a far more comfortable contact with the floor when I walked and ran. Thank you so much for rekindling my faith that I will become competitive once more in Athletics. An old man feels young again.

Functional Feet Workshop – ...Just thought I would let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop. It has made me start to work hard on my legs again…Today my legs feel great, no pain. The worksheets are also good as a reminder.

…just wanted to say a huge thanks for the functional Feet workshop. I loved it, found it so informative and so much of it very relevant for me at the moment. Your advice has made me so much more aware of things now, lots of work to be done.

Functional Feet Workshop - … an afternoon spent well! I’ve learnt new techniques and you just assured me that feet really do matter. We both felt really comfortable, Dale said it was really friendly and laid back…

Free the head, neck and shoulder workshop – …I really enjoyed the Workshop. The whole afternoon was interesting and the exercises were very helpful. I felt much less tense afterwards. It was interesting to discover just how much tension I carry and where! I am planning to make a big effort to practise. The exercises and the illustrations of muscles were interesting and seeing the 'pictures' helped to relate the practical to the body and understand how it all works(or not!). Thank you. Looking forward to more workshops in the future.

I thought your workshop was absolutely fantastic! It was a really well paced session packed with interesting information and simple but really effective exercises. It was a fun, informative and your presentation style is very welcoming and engaging. I am really looking forward to doing another session with you.

Thank you so much for a very interesting and enlightening workshop yesterday. I don’t really know how you could improve on such a well thought out, action packed 2 hours! My feet have never worked so hard!...
