Lea is such an inspiring and skilful Pilates teacher; her classes are beautifully and thoughtfully crafted. It's so lovely being able to explore and extend our capabilities.
I have been doing Pilates with Lea Blumlein at Petersfield Pilates for three years. I was 56 years old when I started and needed to do something fairly radical for the benefit of my body before it was ‘too late’! Lea initially gave me individual sessions to get to know what she was dealing with and for me to get used to using my body in a way I had never done before. After a while I joined a small, cheerful class which has since become a part of the fabric of my weekly life. Lea and most able assistant, Jess Curnier, have always been patient, kind and very encouraging. With their help, a hamstring injury that had plagued me for a number of years pretty much completely mended and I generally now also have a new, physically positive lease of life. My core strength has also improved immeasurably, for instance I now have no problem lifting a large basket of logs which I previously struggled with even as far back 15 years ago when somewhat younger. Petersfield Pilates is not just very professionally run, it is also a safe, kind, warm and friendly place to nurture one’s fitness and wellbeing. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
