What my clients say…
After a serious road traffic accident and years of problems with my pelvis and lower back I went to see an eminent back surgeon in Brighton. He immediately put me in touch with Jane in the hope of easing my prolapsed disc without an op. Jane’s comprehensive knowledge of the body, combined with her excellent understanding of how to create a sensible and effective program of exercises to match an individuals’ specific needs is superb. It has been a number of years now that I have regularly attended Jane’s Pilates mat class and also have regular massage for body maintenance. As well as keeping me upright and pain free it is always a complete pleasure. The six to eighteen months that the surgeon gave me before it was likely that I would need some sort of treatment from him is now almost four years behind me.

I have been attending Jane’s classes for over 3 years. They are very friendly and relaxed and Jane always gives everyone her personal attention (adjusting exercises where necessary to cater for individual needs). This means each person is given a good level of challenge to suit them. The classes have a consistent core set of exercises that we build on, progressing over time, and are kept varied with the use of different equipment. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane for anyone looking for a Pilates class in Brighton and Hove.
Jane has extensive knowledge of the body, and this enables her to bring a holistic approach to massages, carefully tailoring them to the person’s needs. She does that through the consultation beforehand about how your body is right now and feedback at the end of the massage. There are enormous benefits in having massages on a regular basis, weekly or fortnightly, as I have been doing for some time now. Any strains or muscle discomfort can be dealt with before they become a problem, and with Jane’s guidance I can do a lot myself to prevent aches and pains from developing. That goes a long way to promoting confidence in everyday life. I see my massages as a really important part of a healthy life-style. Pilates classes and regular massages – the two work so well together. Jane’s expertise in both makes it a great combination for health and well-being.
Thank you for being such an amazing teacher. You really have taught me so much and made me understand my body better. If I feel a bit fed up before my class with you, I always come out feeling on top of the world and ready to get through another week.
