"My doctor suggested I try Pilates after going to her regarding a suspected trapped nerve in my leg. Having never tried Pilates before I gave it a go. I wanted to find a class that was local to me and fitted in with my day off, which is a Monday I also wanted a daytime class. Realign did exactly what I wanted. Gilly was very helpful when I e-mailed her regarding fitting me in the class I wanted. I have now been attending the classes for 4months and found it beneficial for my condition. Even though the classes are challenging they are also fun. Which is all down to Gilly. I never thought Pilates would make a difference. You come away feeling relaxed, but also feeling that you've put your body through a soft work out. (Especially the next day). It also suits any age, as the movements are small and controlled."

"Gilly's classes are brilliant.  I have a severe back injury and she was recommended by my back specialist physio.  Since joining the class my core strength has increased a lot and my pain is greatly reduced."

Jane Gilbert

"Having never tried Pilates before I didn't know what to expect. Gilly put me at ease right away. I have subsequently rebooted and am now on my third block. I'm feeling the benefits and no two weeks are the same which keeps it fresh and interesting."

"Having never attended a Pilates class of any kind, I was unsure of what would be required of me! I needn't have worried.  Gilly, the instructor, put me at my ease straight away; she is patient, professional and friendly. The class is enjoyable yet always challenging!  I leave each session feeling so much better in both mind and body.  I can highly recommend Realign Pilates with Gilly to anyone."

"I find Gilly's classes very informative and her clear explanations have helped me be more aware of my body and how to alleviate all those niggly aches and pains. One thing which is a pleasant surprise is how relaxing the classes are and Gilly is very friendly and helpful."


Janine Crimsons

"I love Gilly’s classes particularly as I have really bad back pain. She explains everything and helps with all of the moves. Wouldn’t go to anyone else now."


Evelyn Keegan

"I've been going to Gilly's classes for 6 months now and I just love them. I feel so much stronger in my core and when doing other exercise classes I feel more in control of my movements than ever before because of this. Gilly makes the classes fun, she's enthusiastic and engaging and I'd recommend Realign Pilates to everyone!"

Bec Metcalfe

"As a complete beginner to Pilates I wasn't sure what to expect. Gilly made me feel very welcome and relaxed. She is very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about what she does. I love the fact that she always explains the movements and stretches and the rationale behind them. Her classes are always well planned. She puts a lot of thought into them and varies them each week. Her enthusiasm, friendliness and great personality always makes each session fun. Although I have only attended for a couple of months now the classes have certainly helped with my back and neck issues. I really enjoy the classes and would highly recommend!"

Susan Mounfield

"I started going to Gilly's Pilates class after my physio recommended I join a class. I've been to 4 classes so far and I can already feel the benefit, it really makes you think about your body, what muscles you are using and especially core strength which is definitely something I need to improve! Gilly is really friendly and the classes are relaxed and fun. I always come away feeling like I was challenged and that I've had a good workout."
