Testimonials


“Having had one to one Pilates sessions with Claire it gave me the confidence to return to my sport after a back injury. Claire has a wealth of knowledge and I would recommend a visit without hesitation.” Jackie


“I started pilates as I was getting fed up with running related injuries.  Blue Sky Pilates classes are varied and challenging (though easier options are available) and unlike other pilates instructors I’ve tried, Claire makes sure you’re doing it right! Weekly mat classes have really improved my running.  I’m running quicker and training at a higher mileage than before and recovering quicker which I put down to a stronger core and being more flexible.  Claire makes sure there is a good mix of strength work and stretching and always comes up with a fix for any niggles which prevents them becoming injuries.” Matt


” Having suffered from chronic back pain for nearly 15 years due to a golfing injury, I have tried many things to ease my discomfort.  At first I was very sceptical of pilates, but over time – both in the studio and with exercises I could do at home – I have been convinced that it helps with range of movement, pain relief and general fitness.  Claire will take the time to understand your individual problem or goals.  I have no doubt that anyone who is prepared to put in the effort to help themselves, will see the benefit, and I would have no hesitation recommending Blue Sky Pilates.” Fraser


“When I came to see Claire I was walking with two sticks after suffering from a significant MS relapse.  I had issues with core stability and balance when trying to walk.  I started with weekly 1-2-1 sessions where Claire focused on getting my abs to engage.  I am gladly, stickless, not quite a six pack but my walking is really strong and controlled.  I love it when I get to jump and run on the “whatever the machine is called – you fill this bit in Claire”.  It gets my heart rate up and it is the biggest adrenalin rush I have had in many months as the machine allows me to work my legs without having to manage my balance issues at the same time.  Awesome!

Claire not only provides sound Pilates advice she also is a great emotianal outlet for my frustrations – she listens very well.

My next aim, with Claire’s help is to start running again…..!” Lynsey
