“I was a total beginner when I started Pilates classes with Zoë. She has a really excellent way of explaining things to beginners that helps you get your body into new and unfamiliar positions! Zoë has a really great manner which means classes were always fun and enjoyable, but equally she knows when to push you. I’ve always finished my classes with an enormous sense of physical wellbeing but also an emotional sense of calm as well, I can highly recommend Zoë as a Pilates teacher!”
A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.
