Frequently Asked Questions

Before joining a class it is advisable to have a private session to ensure that you are ready to join an existing class. During the session you will learn the Pilates fundamentals of aligning, breathing and centring, and Zoe will assess you to see what class would be best for you to join.

Yes, certainly. All classes are open to male clients, too. Pilates works to restore good postural alignment, correct muscle imbalances and find trigger points to relieve tension common to both genders. Men can experience the same benefits that women can by practicing Pilates regularly.

Pilates helps to strengthen core muscles which support your back. Physiotherapists, osteopaths and other health professionals recommend it, but always check with your doctor or health professional first if you are unsure.

“I truly wish I had discovered Pilates years ago. Despite seeming like gentle exercise it has had a noticeable impact on my posture, shape and suppleness. Not only this but I actually enjoy it – Zoe is an excellent teacher and great fun – I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her classes”
Anna Wright
"A year ago I was unable to drive and barely able to sit following a back injury. Now I have the strength and confidence to dig my new garden thanks to Zoe’s classes. I’ve done Pilates before but Zoe is the best teacher I’ve come across. She enables you to get right inside every movement so you build awareness of how your body works. There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach as she pays attention to each individual – a real bonus in a group class. I highly recommend working with Zoe."

"I have been attending Zoe’s Pilates classes for nearly 5 years now and while I always knew they were making a positive difference to my core strength and flexibility, it was not until I fractured my pelvis a couple of months ago that I realized just how beneficial Zoe’s sessions have been. In the early stages of recovery, I would not even have been able to sit up unassisted had it not been for all the core strength building that is a key element of Zoe’s teaching. Additionally, the improved upper body, spine and leg strength gained from Pilates put me streets ahead in terms of getting back on my feet and regaining mobility. Interestingly, many of the recommended exercises for pelvic fracture recovery are the same as basic Pilates exercises so returning to class is aiding my ongoing rehabilitation. I can honestly say my Pilates training has been a godsend. Thanks Zoe!"

"I have experienced chronic back pain for a number of years and more recently started to have leg cramps at night. Since starting to do Pilates with Zoe two months ago I have found that both conditions have improved. I have not had to take pain killers for my back for a month. I’m quite amazed at how quickly I have benefited from Pilates. Zoe makes you feel welcome from the very first class and adapts the exercises to suit each person in the class. The atmosphere of the classes is relaxed and friendly. I always come out of my Pilates class feeling that I have benefited mentally as well as physically. Thanks Zoe!"

"With a history of Osteoporosis, Pilates was recommended to me as a suitable form of exercise. For many months before starting Zoe’s classes I was experiencing severe hip pain on a daily basis which also regularly disrupted my sleep at night. After only a few weeks I immediately noticed the impact the sessions were making to my everyday life, the pain ceased! Learning how my body works, the importance of strengthening both sides of the body to avoid over compensating on one particular side, along with developing good posture and core strength is having a very beneficial effect. Zoe is an excellent teacher, very approachable, knowledgeable and patient. She is genuinely interested in the individual needs and abilities of everyone within the group, making every session enjoyable."
