"I joined the Surbiton Pilates Studio Reformer Classes several months ago as recommended by my Osteopath. The Reformer Pilates sessions have helped me recover from a very painful frozen shoulder and improve strength in my knees. My posture has improved and my arms, abs & legs are nicely toned.”
Surbiton Pilates Studio is a great place, the atmosphere is bubbly and friendly. Dorie is patient, supportive and most of all fun. She articulates the moves so that I get the best out of each session. After years of trying, I’ve finally nailed some of them and I’m seeing the results too. Thanks Dorie.
As an avid spinner and runner, the thought of sitting down on a mat for 60 minutes was unthinkable at the start, but Pilates really has transformed my way of looking at exercise and my training routine. I feel stronger, have better posture and better tone… it is all thanks to Surbiton Pilates.
