“My overall health goal is to take better care of my body through dedicating time to exercise and doing things to support and strengthen it.

‘I was struggling with neck and shoulder pain as well as stress and Pilates was suggested and it has really helped! My neck pain has improved dramatically and its wonderful to have learnt stretches that I can use at any time should I feel stiff or sore in any part of my body. I also do the stretches at home every night and I have felt an immediate difference to my sleep which is much improved. The class is also something I look forward to every week as it is always so good for us. It is a safe, relaxed environment and you are able to go at your own pace. You compete only with yourself and it is wonderful to move and discover what the body can actually do. Charlotte is encouraging and caring and often so funny that you forget all about the pain. Her piano music that she plays brings a real sense of God’s peace. The ladies are friendly and one feels totally at home.’ – Rosemary

Every class is different and challenges you in a different way than the previous one and the energy of the people helps to lift your spirits when you have had a difficult day. Charlotte not only helps you to become physically stronger but also mentally and spiritually.’ – Richelle
