"I have had many different Pilates teachers over the years, but Mariann is by far the best teacher ever. Her ability to fine tune her workouts to repair and strengthen my posture and body has been life-changing for me. I no longer have back or shoulder pain and am much fitter and stronger. I am now going twice per week and loving how it makes me feel. She is a delightful woman and I can not recommend her highly enough."

"Really effective and considerate teacher who's been able to help a great deal with a long term hip injury- not only is Mariann a wonderful and knowledgeable instructor but she's also very good at teaching in a light and positive way that encourages you in the right direction rather than using negativity or the idea that there is a strict wrong and right which is a very refreshing approach, would very much recommend her to anyone."

Mariann is an amazing teacher and has helped to completely reshape my body.

I suffered from chronic back problems and Pilates was suggested to me as an alternative to surgery. Now after starting Pilates with Mariann as a beginner on a mat and progressing to more advanced reformer Pilates my back is better than it ever was and I have much greater strength and flexibility all round. I would recommend Pilates to anyone looking to reverse the aging process, deal with a back issue or just become stronger and more flexible.

I highly recommend Mariann, she has the empathy required to help on your path and a love for Pilates which is truly inspiring.

Mariann has helped me with the recovery from two serious spinal surgeries treating a bulging disc.
When I first started classes I was still struggling to do basic things, but I now have a much stronger and flexible body and am able to do things like I used to do before the operations.

Mariann is an awesome and lovely person who is very easy to get on with. She is very kind and patient, which has been important for me as I have had tough emotional moments on the road to recovery.
The classes are specifically pinpointed to what is needed at any particular time, so there is a flexible and bespoke approach to the individuals needs.

If anyone has had any issues with an injury or surgery or even if they would just like to improve their strength / posture in general I would highly recommend one on one classes with Mariann!
