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!”
Pilates helps many of our Osteopathic patients to improve posture and overall flexibility. Increasing core stability is particularly helpful for back pain sufferers. A combination of Pilates and Osteopathy will ensure the best possible combination of muscular and skeletal treatment and rehabilitation. Helen Smith is a highly qualified Pilates Instructor, professional and thorough in her approach. I am happy to recommend her to all my patients. I use Pilates as an integral part of my own fitness regime to improve my sports performance and prevent work-related repetitive injuries.
