Your instructor Diane Oakden is a qualified Modern Pilates instructor trained by Cherry Baker. http://www.pfetraining.co.uk/modern-pilates-courses/

Diane says  “I tried Pilates when I had a stressful desk based job and suffered  lower back problems which were painful. When I practised Pilates my back problems disappeared. When I had a career change and trained as a personal trainer I knew that I wanted look more deeply at Pilates so went on to qualify as an instructor. Pilates builds a greater sensitivity towards your own body so you are less likely to have posture related back problems. It is also very relaxing which a great many class members find very helpful.”
