Helen Smith, founder of the Studio, has been successfully teaching Pilates since July 2003. Her clients just keep …… coming back! Several from her very first Pilates class, in Osmotherley Village Hall, still attend. Here is what they say: “It is life enhancing, physically and socially” Carole; “Pilates is fun, friendship, keeping young, staying fit” Tamsin; “Many of my friends are restricted in everyday tasks – I realise how important your classes are” Enid (75 years young!). Helen would like to say to her clients “You are an inspiration to me. I love my teaching and it is because of each of you! Here is to the next 10 years!”
I believe strongly in the benefits of Pilates. It is useful for those wishing to reduce the symptoms of back problems, in preparation for surgery or as a form of rehabilitative exercise. Pilates is also a great way to maintain a strong, healthy back. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen Smith as a professional and well-qualified teacher. She has brought about effective results in my patients.
