We have been attending Flow Studio Pilates with Nicola for 18 months. Nicola is a highly professional tutor who explains things very well, listens to how we are getting on, encourages us to get the most from each session and is always very friendly.
Julie had an operation on her foot last year and Nicola then tailored Julie’s Pilates sessions to accommodate her recuperation over the next few months. We are both more flexible and mobile since we have been attending classes. We certainly notice how our body reacts if we miss a class. We would thoroughly recommend Flow Studio Pilates to people of any age and ability.

"After years of back & hip pain, Nicola has helped to change my life. For the first time in 15 years, I have moments of complete relief and have managed to stop all the analgesics…Result!

“ I have benefitted enormously from Nicola’s pilates tuition. Week by week I have been able to increase my ability to achieve flexibility and strength through her patient instructions. She has good communication skills and experience of how far to take exercises, by being sensitive to the age, the ailments and the fitness of her patients. Nicola has a caring, relaxed and friendly manner, and her studio setting is wonderful! I thoroughly recommend her classes.”

"Just one session of Pilates with Nicola was enough to get me hooked. After only ever having Pilates on the mat, it was a revelation. The equipment has enabled me to access movements in a safe, supported way that I could not of otherwise achieved. I can feel that my muscles are getting stronger and my movements are easier and I am getting close to my goal of walking normally again."
"Nicola has been teaching me for about 5 months now. We met through friends and she has been helping me to get my Pilates teacher training. I value her teaching as I have come on leaps and bounds. I have slowly & continuously improved my strength & knowledge. She has become a friend who I value. To work & learn with Nicola is a pleasure."
“On the advice of my osteopath I joined Nicola’s Pilates class. Initially I was a little wary of this as I had undergone quite a lot of abdominal surgery but from the outset Nicola was very aware of my concerns and my limitations. I have now been seeing Nicola since September 2017 and during this time I feel that I have got stronger in my core and also more aware of my bad posture. Nicola now only has to say “shoulders” to make me correct my myself.
I do look forward to the Pilates sessions and thank Nicola for her patience, understanding of individual concerns and her lovely sense of humour.”
"Nicola´s Pilates sessions are perfect….Tough, demanding and ultimately very rewarding.She is a very precise which means you get a real sense of achievement in completing the movements.A great way to start the day!"
"Nicola has helped me so much, not just physically but mentally too! After my Osteopath had done all he could, he suggested I see Nicola, this has turned out to be the best referral ever! After 20 years of suffering with back pain, I now feel I´m walking more upright & my back feels stronger and the pain is a lot less, thats made my mental state a lot better too. Nicola is the loveliest lady, so careful & caring, respecting your back problems. I would most certainly always recommend her to anyone."
"Nicola is a brilliant Pilates teacher, she makes sure everything is done correctly. Which makes every move count, so much more effective than a large class.My joints aches and pains are getting so much better, thanks to her targeted exercises.Thank you!"
"Two years ago my physio suggested I see Nicola flowing treatment for a leg and lower back injury suffered during combat sports. I was experiencing muscle atrophy and needed regular but controlled exercise to restore it. The muscle has long since grown back, but I enjoyed Pilates so much that I haven't stopped. I´m benefitting from greater flexibility, balanced posture and for 1 hour a week I get to focus on nothing else but myself. Nicola is a wonderful teacher, highly skilled and full of energy. I´m delighted to recommend Nicola and Flow Studio Pilates."
