Whatever your age, background or ability. I will guide you using safe Pilates exercises both on the mat and using resistance-based equipment that will strengthen your core (which provides the necessary stability for your back and pelvis), improve posture, spinal alignment, mobility and increase flexibility.
Start rebuilding your self-confidence, improve your overall physical health, feel stronger, leaner, taller.

Pre-Class Consultation & Postural Analysis/Mobility Testing
A one-to-one consultation before starting is highly recommended; this includes a postural analysis & mobility assessment to not only determine your starting Stage but provides an opportunity to discuss your medical condition if you are worried about commencing exercise especially after surgery.
40 Minutes - One off payment £15. Refundable deducation upon sign-up of a private session or course.
Known Pathological Conditions & Recent Surgery
If you have had recent surgery or have been diagnosed with a pathological condition relating to the spine you will need written confirmation from your doctor that you are physically able to take part in these classes as everyone's recovery times and circumstances are different please check with me if you are not sure. A standard sign-off letter is availiable from me upon request to help save time for both you and your medical practitioner.
In the case of NSLBP it may be possible for you join without doctor’s referral (although this is preferred) but this will be on a case-by-case basis at my discretion.
Please note that you may need to consider having one to one private tuition first before joining a small group class. The Back4Good classes work in 4 stages; you may not necessarily start at stage 1 as every case is unique.
- Stage 1: 1st Aid Exercises
- Stage 2: 1st Aid Exercises plus slow-paced beginners' class usually with exercise modifications maximum 6 to a class.
- Stage 3: Beginners Classes - Taken at at a slower pace maximum 6 to 10 per class.
- Stage 4: Beginners Classes - General or transition into other general mat-work classes due to progression.
To register for this course, please contact me to arrange an initial consultation and review.
A one-to-one consultation will be required before commencing any classes.
Consultations will take place at the Diamond Press Pilates & Massage Studio
