"I began Pilates after more than a year of treatments on my neck, thinking it was time to do something for myself.

Pilates with Lea has been a revelation. No more neck and spine pain and I am moving so much better. Most of all though it is such fun. Lea is one of the best informed and attentive instructors you could wish to have. This is the only class I have ever kept at and will continue to do so."
