|Having suffered from lower back pain for a number of years, I decided to be pro-active and enrolled on the 6 session introduction course at North West Pilates and Yoga Centre.|
The course was split between mat work / stretching sessions with Sue, and reformer sessions with Nisha. Although different, I feel that both approaches actually complemented each other. The one to one classes were very helpful in order to understand my individual needs and also allowed me to understand the movements better.
I was initially concerned that the movements may actually cause me pain, but this has not been the case. I have felt no pain or discomfort as a result of the classes, and I can already feel the benefits with greater movement and rotation.
I am now also more aware of my posture and movements etc. and am trying to incorporate the Pilates principles into my everyday activities.
I am now part way through a 4 week reformer class. The class sizes are deliberately small, and allow what feels like one to one tuition.
I would recommend the classes to anybody who has suffered from back pain in the past, or for people who want to improve their overall posture and health.
