"I absolutely love the classes, l've become so strong physically since I joined your class and also have gained tremendous self confidence, thank you so much."
and everyone is so friendly."
"I really enjoy your classes and they have helped me gain awareness and confidence in my own strength which I've never experienced before. This has helped me enormously as I'm constantly picking up my small children and I'm less likely to injure my back."
"I was very sceptical about the benefits of Pilates but decided to try when a friend recommended the class. Much to my surprise, the class was challenging and yet relaxing! Miranda is an excellent teacher who understands each participant's limitations while still challenging them. I particularly like that each class is different and with Miranda's guidance, you progress quickly. I loved it so much, I signed up for classes twice a week and am seeing the benefit in a stronger core and better posture. Pilates is a great complementary exercise if you are a runner or regular gym goer, strengthening your joints and core and enhancing your other exercise."
"I have two sessions a week with Miranda Shannon for pilates, one on a one-to-one basis and the other in a group class. Both are incredibly beneficial and are very enjoyable. I
find a particular benefit in having a personal session as Miranda will work you to your full ability, however, Miranda does seem to have the ability to "see everyone and everything" even in a
group class so there's never any slacking.
I started pilates to help strengthen my back as I play a lot of tennis and I would thoroughly recommend both pilates and Miranda to anyone wanting to take it up. It's also very enjoyable and sociable and are two weekly appointments that I look forward to."
"As a mature male client I am very happy to recommend your Pilates sessions to anyone else who is still trying to turn the clock back to more flexible times! Your structured approach to my particular sports requirements have produced amazing results - the golf balls go further, the knees work better and the back feels stronger!"
"Great lessons, brilliant teacher, really enjoyed it. Will definitely be back!"
"As a keen lover of a variety of sports (ski-ing, running, tennis, body pump, horse riding etc) it has taken a long time for me to discover the joys of Pilates. This looks at the core and strength of our bodies with attention to age and particular physical needs. This introduction has been much enhanced by the high standard of instruction offered by Miranda. Unlike many other exercise classes I have participated in, hers pay close attention to correct positioning even with a large class. She has an excellent overview of each individual with due attention to their needs. Also she makes sure all areas are addressed but with a variety of exercises. Her private lessons take even more note of this and seem very carefully planned."
' The best testimonial I can give, is that I missed Miranda's pilates classes while on Christmas break!!!! I used to think that in order to 'exercise' I had to exert a lot of energy..in just 3 months or so, Miranda has shown me that by focusing on your core and group muscles, you are helping your body strengthen and tone, which in turn helps your posture and stamina in so many ways. Miranda is very professional in her approach, guides you through every exercise, and, her classes are fun. She is able to direct the group while at the same time focuses on individual level of ability. She ensures you are always in the correct position, in order to get the full benefit of each exercise.! She is very encouraging and supportive all the way. All I can say, is 'Thank you Miranda', and, wish you every success!!!!! '
"I started Pilates with Miranda on a one to one basis several months ago, my aim is to tone everything especially my legs, which Miranda concentrated on, the results were amazing, in a very short time I noticed a difference. I now do two sessions a week I share a private lesson with a friend and go to the Friday morning group session which is always good fun but also intense. I always look forward to my sessions as Miranda is a brilliant teacher always encouraging and never critical. However busy life gets Pilates is one thing I would hate to miss."
