“I’ve been attending Adele’s classes for something like 10 years and I’m still coming”
I’ve been attending Adele’s classes for something like 10 years and I’m still coming – that says it all! As a physio I fully appreciate the value of Pilates practice taught properly and safely in the recovery from and prevention of low back pain. Adele manages to achieve this and make it FUN!! So please keep doing it!!!

“Successfully manage their back pain to a large extent”
I believe the improved flexibility and control developed in Pilates helps many of my patients successfully manage their back pain to a large extent.

“I feel I have achieved some fantastic results”
Being a keen sports person and having a very physical job I was never hugely keen on slowing the pace down and doing Pilates BUT Adele has completely inspired me. Her huge personality and sense of fun make her class a joy and her knowledge makes you put all your faith in her. I feel I have achieved some fantastic results and recommend her class to all my clients.
Thank you, Adele.

“Adele has a wealth of experience and comes highly recommended”
Pilates is a really beneficial exercise for people suffering from any form of back pain, want to improve their athletic performance or purely help prevent problems/injuries in the future. A strong core is so important to all of us. Adele has a wealth of experience and comes highly recommended as a Pilates teacher, accommodating individual needs.

“Adele’s patient and thorough teaching has also helped me to get out of pain”
After having suffered with a chronic back condition for many years I was advised to take up Pilates. A cliché, I know, but it has changed my life and enabled me to continue with many pursuits which would have otherwise been extremely difficult. Adele’s patient and thorough teaching has also helped me to get out of pain at times when the old war wounds flare up! I never understood what strong core muscles were until now and how using them instead of your back can save a lot of grief. Oh and it’s not all airy fairy either… be prepared to work!!!!!

Adele is Fab!
What can I say, Adele keeps me moving! Suffering with back and joint problems I have found I’m much stronger, suppler and all together fitter, plus Adele is Fab!

“Adele is forever supportive, consistently professional and amazingly cheerful at every class”
Adele accepts that Pilates is much more of a challenge for men (something to do with not having to make an effort with tummy after childbirth?) but she makes every allowance for this and is very encouraging of her male attendees. Adele’s classes are the sole reason why I have not seized up altogether. I moan to myself, and anyone else who will listen, before each Pilates class but in truth I feel much better at the end. Adele is forever supportive, consistently professional and amazingly cheerful at every class. It is an hour well spent away from whatever else is going on in your world. (And where else would you pay but £7 for an hour to lay on the floor with a whole loan of lovely women!)
Unlike rich dining, copious drinking and sex (well at least for someone my age) Pilates is one activity where one feels better afterwards than before. Adele is very professional and her classes really are enjoyable, the hour just slips by. A small word of warning to people thinking of joining one of Adele’s classes; numbers are not her strongest skill. An exercise that comprise “a left” and “a right” counts as one rather than two! When she says that there are ten more moves to do, there will be at least eleven and fourteen is not unknown! When very occasionally there needs to be a change of venue, the [prudent][perfect] attendee should always double-check!

“Enjoyable, beneficial and fun way to maintain our fitness”
At our age Pilates is a great way to have good exercise. To do our sessions with Adele makes for an enjoyable, beneficial and fun way to maintain our fitness.

“I always come away from the class feeling energised”
I have attended one of Adele’s classes for several years and it has truly become part of my weekly routine and way of life. I really have seen the benefits of Adele’s sharp eye on improving my posture in my everyday life and greatly improving my technique during the exercises. I always come away from the class feeling energised and full of positive thoughts to take forward to the following days. The classes are really fun thanks to Adele’s great personality and little health tips she has gleaned from the industry which she feels appropriate to share with us. Great class every week!
Angela – Alphington 25th November 2016
Adele is an inspirational teacher with attention to detail on her class and supportive to all, regardless of age or ability. Always an enjoyable hour with a friendly atmosphere.

“You are the BEST”
Dear Adele, Just a short note of admiration for your unfailing professionalism, humour and energy you give to us every week. I think I must have been coming for at least 6 years and hope to come to at least 6 more! Don’t ever stop; you are the BEST. Have a lovely summer.
Love from Tessa – Chagford 25th November 2016
I broke my back many years ago… since starting Pilates with Adele my core muscles have strengthened
I broke my back many years ago and over the years have suffered from associated problems. Since starting Pilates with Adele over 10 years ago my core muscles have strengthened unbelievably and whilst I haven’t exactly got a 6 pack my stomach muscles are flippin’ strong which means my back gets the protection it needs. Adele has the ability to tune into your needs so that in a class of 20 you feel you are having a 1on 1.
Adele also makes the whole experience fun…..as long as she doesn’t sing!!!!

“I am now happy to say I am pain free”
Hi Adele, just wanted to say how much I enjoyed class today. Bum and thighs, just where I need extra help. I am not sure if I will be thanking you tomorrow!
When I started Pilates with you a few years ago, I had bad lower back issues and my hip flexes were very weak. I am now happy to say I am pain free ( fingers crossed) and have a lot more mobility in my hips. I put a lot of this down to your class. You are lots of fun and know when to push the class a little bit more.

highlight of my week
This is the highlight of my week, when I can’t get there it disrupts me till next time I’m there. It truly makes such a difference, my hamstrings are now getting to a place where they can do their thing and the darling back is now a joy to behold!!! Thanks Adele for all your prompting and enthusiasm, I love the classes and the workouts, some very energetic and hard work, no pain no gain etc and some really stretchy and relaxing just a great mix. Keep up the good work and to anyone who is thinking of coming along just do it you will not regret it. PS they are very popular classes now, so don’t hang about spaces are limited and you can’t have mine!!!

“Thank you for making it possible for me to attain a level of fitness that I thought was gone forever”
Thank you for making it possible for me to attain a level of fitness that I thought was gone forever three years ago. When I came to you I had severe pain in my legs and back and had spent a fortune at the Osteopaths. I am now able to hill walk and take on a 30-mile charity walk. My aim is to be the fittest 70 year old in your classs next year!! But I think I will be the only one looking at other class participants

“I knew meditation was powerful but I didn’t realise how powerful, thank you Adele”
Vanina joined me for a personal workshop gathering based on Meditation and Menopause
“The social gathering of like-minded ladies was brilliant. I loved making the space for a meditation I knew that they were powerful but I had no idea how powerful your meditation would be. I always knew food would support the menopause and perimenopause – your workshop confirmed my thinking.
Thanks for a great day”

“EMPOWERING – I loved being with like minded people and found your event empowering”
I loved being with liked minded people on your Menopause and Meditation workshop day. I loved the shared experiences and I felt very empowered by the whole day. I loved the venue, it was sweet and easy to get to and I loved the outside space.
Your food was excellent especially the chia pudding. I will be trying that when you send out the recipe sheets.

Spiritual it felt like an open and safe place to discuss my symptoms and feelings
Louise explains how she felt nervous and apprehensive before attending Adele’s Get Gorgeous meditation and menopause workshop:
“meditation and menopause workshop was informative, spiritual it felt like an open and safe place to discuss my symptoms and feelings. Previously I had learnt to tolerate pain and disorder and lacked confidence and I felt very nervous attending this live event but I came out the other side with a very different perception. I loved your education and the biochemistry was very detailed and affirmed what I had vaguely thought and known.
It was a relief to know that I was normal, instead of thinking I was losing my mind as well as my body. The homework and thinking time before the event was well matched and flowed through the workshop. I loved your detail.
