3 years ago a Physio advised me that the best thing I could do for my bad back was to start doing Pilates. 18 months passed and my back was gradually getting worse and a friend mentioned that she was going to Pilates and I decided to give it a try.
Initially I hated going as I considered it exercise and would look for any excuse not to go. It took me around 6 months to actually realise that if I didn’t go for a week then my back would suffer. I slowly began to realise that for the first time in many years that due to Pilates, I was having pain free days.
After doing a regular class, I decided to sign up for one of Nikki’s ‘Bad Back Classes’. Nikki worked with me to focus on the areas that were causing me problems on a week by week basis. This enabled me to continue practising the exercises at home, particularly if I felt that it was needed.
Nikki motivates and encourages, whilst her classes remain relaxed. You are encouraged to go at your own pace and your own level and I would certainly recommend one of her classes to anyone starting out! Em R x
