"I have been doing Pilates and Somatic Movement Therapy once a week with Susannah since 2017 and I have seen an incredible change to my core strength and stability (and body shape!)"
When Annabel started 'lockdown', she assumed that missing few weeks before the country started up again would be fine. Fast forward to a few weeks of working from home, bending over a laptop at the kitchen table on a too short chair later... Add in Netflix, too many glasses of wine, several extra snacks and some very half hearted running, she knew she was in trouble!
"My neck hurt, my shoulders were tense, my posture slumped and all that effort I had put in was wasted. I was sceptical that we could recreate a proper Pilates session over Zoom without the reformer, the chair, the barrel and the other objects of torture, but I was amazed at how hard I worked over the hour. Two sessions later and I am sitting taller, walking properly and feeling my core engage again. Equipped with just a towel, Susannah could direct me to work all parts of my body in a surprisingly similar way to the studio. Add in a strap/yoga band and/or a magic circle and we are well underway to me escaping the house in a much more similar shape as when I entered lockdown. I didn't believe it would be possible to achieve this much over Zoom!"
