“Everyone is the architect of their own happiness”
Here is what some of our happy clients are saying about us...
I started Pilates because my posture was awful, I had recurring chronic neck pain, back pain and a rotator cuff injury. The sport I play competitively, curling, was more difficult for me as a result. I needed a regime change to improve my posture and strengthen my core muscles to enable me to continue to play. Further I needed to alleviate the chronic pain.
I decided upon Pilates having researched the systems. I happened upon your web site as a local expert in the spring of 2016. The private lessons you kindly provided my wife and I persuaded me that the regime was the way forward. Your group classes are excellent, fun and have without doubt gradually changed my posture and attitude. I am not pain free but only the cuff injury remains a nuisance. I am much more flexible, relaxed and fitter in the space of 3 months. The curling season has started well too!
Thank you so very much for all of your guidance... I realise that there is still much to do and be achieved but I'll get there. Even the garden has been kicked into shape in the last month!
Jacquie has been working with me since 2013. The overall improvement in my posture and well being has been noticed and commented on by my friends and family. I developed Scoliosis during my teenage years, but I didn't really suffer any pain until I was in my 30's.
From then onwards, I was treated by Physiotherapists and Osteopaths on a regular basis. I've attended Pain Clinics, had accupuncture, worn a Tens Machine and been on various pain killers. Some treatments worked for varying lengths of time and others had little or no effect. Latterly I was seeing a Physiotherapist every 6 weeks and taking 5 Gabapentin tablets a day. I was in constant pain, it hurt getting in and out of the car, I couldn't stand up straight from a sitting position and it was painful to sit down.A chat with a neighbour about Pilates led me to Jacquie. In my first 4 months of lessons, I was standing taller and had better spinal flexibility.
I can now move freely every day. I recently got a gorgeous new Cockapoo puppy and I'm able enjoy long walks with her.
Jacquie has made a huge improvement to my overall well being and health.
I would highly recommend Jacquie's Pilates classes.
I have been attending Jacquie's classes at Bridge of Allan Sports Club for over a year now and am always impressed by the relaxed and fun environment Jacquie creates at her classes. Her classes are never repetitive and always varied and she takes account of any fitness restrictions attendees may have in a non intrusive way.
After years of low back pain and stiffness, I can honestly say that the regular Pilates sessions with Jacquie have been instrumental in vastly improving my back problem and posture.
I play squash, football and ski and I'm convinced Pilates has been of great benefit for my mobility and fitness when undertaking these sports.
I absolutely love Jacquie's Pilates classes and always leave feeling refreshed, realigned and energised. The classes have helped to significantly reduce chronic neck, back and shoulder pain from which I sufferered, for about 9 months before joining the classes. Jacquie is knowledgeable, interested in her class members and ensures that the classes are varied, fun and challenging for everyone at different levels of fitness.
