Pilates is a movement based therapy most commonly likened to Yoga and the Alexander technique. Pilates differs however by virtue of the concentrated mind and body connection, and is not meditative.
Dear Helen, thank you very much for your terrific Zoom lesson today. A calm oasis of expert instruction, would be my Trip Advisor review! David
Here we are in lockdown again - only for a few weeks hopefully. After doing such a wonderful job to re-open the Studio, Louisa and her team are now operating on Zoom rather than the Studio. Although we all look forward to resuming 'normal' Studio life without restrictions - Zoom sessions are really not second best. I have been Zooming from the beginning and I really enjoy it, certainly I feel pretty challenged and I look forward to it every week. So, if you're not sure whether it's for you, my advice is - go for it - you'll be very fit and prepared for the Studio when it re-opens. Jan
Once a week, I spent an hour on Zoom with three others, being talked through a well thought out series of exercises, which varied quite a bit each week. I absolutely loved it, it gave me energy and strength, my core was looked after and so was my head. I always felt fantastic afterwards. Kate

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team for all you have done to make it possible for us “students” to get back into the Studio. I really enjoyed my session yesterday and had absolutely no qualms about safety and cleanliness; in fact I’m sure I could have eaten off the floor! Janet
May I congratulate you and the team in making The Studio ‘Covid- safe’. It’s great to be back in the studio with Sam and other clients. May I also thank you for your Update emails which have been very balanced, measured, sensitive, informative, positive and with an added bonus of your underlying humour sprinkled here and there. The tone has been spot on, which must be very difficult to achieve in these very judgemental times. Sue
Really enjoyed being back in the studio – the set up was brilliant and I thought you steered the group really well. Well done to you all for creating that blended model and for making it so seamless. Really professional. Rupert
Online Pilates has been great over the last few months of lockdown but it is really nice to get back to the Studio at Winchester Pilates. The staff have gone above and beyond to make it Covid-safe. There are separation screens, thorough cleaning regimes and well behaved participants! Many Thanks, David & Laura
I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work in getting the studio back up and running in these tricky times. I have had two studio sessions with Helen and am impressed by the diligent cleaning and the social distancing. I have no safety concerns and am very pleased to be back! Susan
In today’s world with the frenetic pace, the constant demands on our bodies and the physical and mental stresses of every day life, it is so important to find some space and time. How often do we really focus on ourselves? Pilates is a means to focus the mind and body and to help find a way to manage, through good movement, to redress some of those imbalances.
