As I start my fifth year of Pilates I still feel fortunate to have found InReach just by chance. Louise is such an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher. Her classes are so welcoming and are varied both in terms of content and focus.A recent encounter with a very muddy bank made me realise just how much my core has improved, entirely due to Pilates. Luckily, this strength prevented an undignified and painful slip into the brambles.As a older f*rt, I'm conscious of the need to keep everything ticking over. Louise's classes do far more than that. Thank you for being a super teacher and friend.

These classes have helped me build my confidence to exercise regularly again after waiting for surgery and a post-covid slump! Louise is a great teacher, very patient and offered a dynamic and accessible routine every week. 100% recommend for a mindful exercise to reconnect with your body if you're experiencing aches or fatigue.

Louise’s classes have made such a difference to my week! Being able to attend at the beautiful studio as well as access classes online (live and on demand!) has been brilliant. I feel physically stronger but there’s also just an overall sense of well-being too … and it’s fun! ☺️

I absolutely love my weekly classes with Louise at InReach Pilates. I’m a PhD student and end up with a lot of tension in my shoulders so being able to release that every week has been a treat. I also suffer from ankle instability and we do lots of lower body strengthening work which helps massively! Louise is a kind, friendly and enthusiastic teacher and always caters to different skill levels during the classes. Attending her classes will definitely brighten your day! ☀️
17:03 27 Sep 22
Louise makes the classes fun and every week is different so I don't get bored. I always look forward to the online classes as I don't live in Sheffield and I can pick up any missed classes on line.
20:14 21 Sep 22
Louise is a brilliant Pilates teacher, she will make you feel totally at home, encoraged and supported. Most importantly she makes you want to give your absolute best. Thanks Louise

I really enjoy Louise’s Pilates classes. I do online and in person (Sheffield Studio) classes and they help me both physically and with my all round well-being. I’ve noticed my posture is better and my back and shoulders are less stiff. She’s always friendly and positive no matter what. Really can’t recommend highly enough!
10:00 03 Mar 21
Louise is a great teacher. She creates a fun, friendly and accepting atmosphere. Her instructions and prompts are carefully paced to help you to work at your own level and get control of your physical well-being. Forget frantic gyms and join a class that is about you.
17:57 02 Feb 21
I love Louise’s online Pilates classes; if I lived in Sheffield I would most definitely want to attend her live classes. I’ve been doing Pilates for a few years now and Louise is brilliant with her progressions and visualisations. I love the fact the class is live; it will most definitely appeal to all abilities. Louise is always enthusiastic which is contagious and never fails to make me smile, chuckle and on occasion LOL. Her sessions rejuvenate me especially after a day in the office.
10:14 01 Feb 21
Louise’s online classes are fantastic, always engaging and something I look forward to each week.
11:38 27 Jan 21
The in-person classes were great, and the online ones have been a saving grace during lockdown. Louise is a gem.
08:14 25 Jan 21
InReach Pilates has kept me going during lockdowns - I like that it is live
21:02 24 Jan 21
Louise is a brilliant teacher, she pays attention to every person in the class and creates such a friendly atmosphere. Her classes are really accessible and she will always adapt movements for different abilities, injuries etc. Zoom classes in lockdown have been brill 👍

I started online Pilates classes with Louise in May this year and have been hooked ever since. Louise demonstrates the moves in a very clear and encouraging way. She gives (for me) just the right number of cues and reminders about what to do and her cheery personality makes the whole experience a real joy. I am thoroughly enjoying the classes and would absolutely recommend them. She offers a free 7 day trial which is a great opportunity to see whether the classes work for you.
20:37 11 Oct 20
I have been doing pilates with Louise 3 years now! I have been enjoying every class and all the different pieces of equipment! Not only it helps me to have a stronger body, but also it takes all the stress away. Louise gives guidance and differentiates her class for all the needs and you can go up to where you feel like it each time. During lockdown it's been really helpful having my pilates routine and instead of the equipment Louise gave us alternatives using household items. I definitely recommend it!
22:33 04 Oct 20
I have been doing Pilates for many years and really missed my class when lockdown came. A blessing in disguise as I joined Louise's classes on zoom . She is an excellent teacher who layers up each exercise,makes it fun and always mixes up the class so you are constantly stimulated and stretched! Now I can do at least 3 classes a week from the comfort of my home. My balance, strength and suppleness have all improved and I look forward to each session. Thank you Louise. Highly recommended her classes.
16:51 29 Sep 20
Enjoyable and effective. I have been with Louise for over a year, Pilates has taught me to be patient with my movements and Louise’s way of performing makes me able to enjoy every single move. She describes the exercises carefully and in an interesting way. Very different from Pilates I have tried before. I certainly feel that my balance, posture and flexibility has improved. I definitely recommend inreach Pilates.
10:08 29 Apr 20
COVID UPDATE: Online lessons are a triumph! It feels like Louise is in the room with me - very natural, very clear to understand and great to keep up pilates throughout lockdown. It's useful to have specific class times so I schedule them into my day to ensure I get some stretching and just some 'me' time. Thank you for getting this up and running so smoothly!I thought I'd try pilates to make me stretch more, regain a bit of flexibility as I get older. I didn't really know what to expect. I have loved Louise's classes. They are relaxed and fun so no matter your ability you feel included and successful. The classes are small so there is plenty of individual support and correction when necessary and Louise rotates equipment every week making sure lessons are varied. I have also found the sessions a great opportunity to mentally unwind and leave feeling better in many ways. Would highly recommend.
13:08 12 Nov 19
Louise is such a great teacher! From my first initial enquiry she was friendly, efficient and effective in dealing with my query regarding classes. I had chronic neck pain and since attending InReach I don't get any pain at all in my neck and don't feel the need for painkillers any more. Louise's classes are fun and relaxed and I look forward to Monday mornings and never get the Monday morning blues anymore!!!
22:17 07 Nov 19
Louise is brilliant, get on down!
10:48 06 Nov 19
I patiently searched for a pilates class and I was lucky enough to stumble on Inreach pilates page. Louise is such a great pilates instructor, she made me feel comfortable and I have enjoyed every session. You won't regret it. Search no more.
16:21 25 Oct 19
Louise has been fantastic in helping get on top of injuries from a car crash. I was recommended her classes by my physio as the groups are small and Louise adapts sessions for each individual. After nearly two years of continual progression I will keep up with the classes. As well as the benefits of personalised exercises, the classes are great fun.
16:43 21 Oct 19
I really enjoy Louise's class, she is very welcoming and structures the classes in such. a way to cater for all ages and abilities. I have only been going a short time and already my balance is much better.a

A friend spotted the offer of a free taster class, and I was immediately hooked on pilates at this friendly studio. I am a big fan of Claire's beginners' class at 6pm on Wednesdays and highly recommend it. I can feel the benefits already after just 6 weeks!
18:59 06 Oct 19
I am returning to Pilates after a break and can't wait to get started again. Louise's classes are brilliant. She gets to know everyone's goals and limits and adjusts the class accordingly. I don't always feel very motivated before exercise but always feel amazing after a class with Louise!
12:30 28 Sep 19
I have been with Louise for 2 months now and I can honestly say she is the best pilates teacher I have ever had. Her knowledge of injury and rehab (as practiced by sports physios) is excellent. Every class is well-planned, and she gets to know all her students (and their limitations) well. She is caring and kind.The bonus is the gentle music she plays. I switched from yoga to pilates 2 years ago because of injury, and I have missed the meditative calm and body acceptance that yoga gave me. The combination of Louise’s warmth, a friendly class, and the music, has brought this back to my life, and it plays a key role in my well-being.
14:47 24 Sep 19
I've been doing Pilates for over 20 years and Louise is right up there with the very best of all the instructors that I've ever had. She is incredibly attentive and aware of any issues you may be having and uses lots of different equipment, therefore ensuring variety and interest in every class. I had a total hip replacement just over four months ago and Louise has been an enormous help to me both pre and post op with all the stretching, flexibility and strengthening exercises that are now really helping with my recovery. The studio and instructor are both lovely, equally relaxing and challenging and the class is very friendly and inclusive of all ages, I really couldn't recommend InReach Pilates more highly. Xx
12:09 24 Sep 19
Fantastic Pilates Class for improving core strength, balance and flexibility Louise is an excellent teacher and makes the class really enjoyable Highly recommended
05:30 19 Sep 19
I’ve been going for years. I always feel better physically and mentally after a class. Louise is a great teacher, very knowledgeable while being fun at the same time.
12:34 18 Sep 19
I have been attending Louise's classes for just over a year now and I love it. It has really helped with my flexibility, relaxation and general well-being. The studio is very comfortable and well-equipped and the group is very friendly and supportive. Louise is an excellent teacher; we work hard but she is very caring and gives us individual support. We are encouraged to do what we can but there is no pressure to push ourselves too hard. The sessions are fun and invigorating! I always look forward to them. Thanks Louise!
11:47 18 Sep 19
I've been attending Louise's class for just over a year now. I spend all day at work looking forward to it! I find the class itself very relaxing and the environment is lovely but I was genuinely surprised at the difference it's made to the muscles in my core and legs. As a runner I've definitely found Pilates to be very beneficial and would highly recommend it.Louise is the nicest person and her classes are a lot of fun.Come and give it a go 🙂
20:51 17 Sep 19
After my free taster session I knew it was the ideal class for me. Classes are small and Louise gives everyone personal attention, which is great if you have any particular injury. She is inventive and every week we do something new, with different pieces of equipment. Everyone has their favourite, whether it is the hedgehog or the roller!
10:55 16 Sep 19
It's lovely to have found such an instantly welcoming Pilates class and Louise has such a great manner of teaching. She uses a variety of equipment to transform what could've been boring Pilates mat-work into something much more fun and interesting. Her lessons are sensitive to each students' needs and small enough to create a sense of intimacy and personalisation. All this in a lovely, well-located studio. Thanks for reading 🙂
19:21 15 Sep 19
Louise is by far my favourite Pilates teacher - she knows when to push you & when to let you have a minute enjoying a roll down 🧘🏽♀️ Best hour of the week!
20:28 11 Sep 19
Love my classes with Louise! The studio is lovely and airy, only about 7 people per class so you get plenty of space and attention.
19:46 09 Sep 19
Having never tried Pilates before it was recommended by my physio. A friend recommendation later and I have been enjoying classes with Louise for nearly a year now. My weekly classes are my sanctuary. Louise is so supportive and creates such a safe space. I have benefited both physically and mentally and have fallen in love with Pilates. The class sizes are small and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Try your free session and I promise you won’t look back!!
20:38 01 Sep 19
I have been attending Louise's classes since February 2018, I'd previously tried other classes, but you know you've found the right instructor from day one. Louise always keeps a careful eye on her clients capabilities, there is a nice relaxed atmosphere and always an element of fun. You always come away feeling stronger, toned and stretched, I look forward to my weekly classes.
06:32 01 Sep 19
Great location and a lovely spacious studio. Louise is the best pilates instructor I have had. I look forward to my weekly class and pilates is the best. Thks Louise!
18:58 31 Aug 19
I tried a few studios when I first moved to Sheffield, and InReach was definitely the best! Louise is a great teacher and her classes good fun. Highly recommend!
18:49 31 Aug 19
Pilates at InReach with Louise is one of my favourite things to do. I was feeling a bit sluggish post retirement from a very physical job when I went to a taster class. I was hooked immediately! This was over 2 years ago and in that time I'm delighted with my core strength, flexibility and just general well-being. Louise is really welcoming and classes are so much fun that I now go twice a week. Thoroughly recommend InReach with Louise and if I can do it anyone can!
17:53 31 Aug 19
Having attended Louise's classes for around 2 years now, I always feel stretched, more toned and calmer. Louise adds an element of fun to each session.
16:02 31 Aug 19
Louise is an amazing instructor who will work with your specific needs to ensure you not only enjoy the classes but make great progress. If you want a class that’s welcoming, fun and will get you feeling fantastic then this is the one for you!
13:36 11 Apr 18
I have been attending louise's gentle pilates class for approx 6 months. I truly didnt want t start initially ! But how wrong I was. Louise is a very lovely , caring lady who really knows her stuff. Classes are always a pleasure to attend and so much fun . They have helped my balance issues enormously. Louise pays special attention to every member of the class so it almost feels like a 1-1 session. I would most definately highly recommend anyone looking for the best pilates classes to try in reach pilates......you wont be disappointed.

Having taken the plunge to attend a class for the first time I was apprehensive as I am a migraine sufferer and the slightest thing can set one off. I needn't have worried. had zero pain the next day, I was very pleasantly surprised! Louise was amazing and helped take me through every step and movement. When I needed guidance she supported me. When it seemed very serious she made it fun and enjoyable. The class was perfectly sized with friendly happy people. As a beginner I am hooked already and I cannot wait to go back next week. And the next. And the next. Thank you Louise, I am a true convert. Can't wait to see my new pilates body emerge! 🙂
07:37 19 Mar 18
Louise is a gem of a teacher. Very knowledgable of the human body, great use of equipment, each lesson is varied. Her hands on approach to tweak your position is essential. You feel more like you’re having 1:1 so her genuine 1:1 classes must be amazing. Must try one soon.
22:45 18 Mar 18
Been attending classes for nearly a year and I love it! Always a good variety of exercises and my core strength and balance have noticeably improved. Highly recommended!

My first ever Pilates experience was with Louise and I never thought I would have enjoyed it so much and feel so great and alive afterwards. Louise is such a great, enthusiastic, experienced teacher who made it an absolute pleasure! I definitely only have good things to say about this exercise and the teacher herself. Would definitely recommend to any one of any age! Louise reminds you that it doesn’t matter how inexperienced or experienced or what age you are to start this!! Thank you very much for the amazing experience!
18:09 18 Mar 18
Louise offers a very practical and individual approach which has given me the confidence to challenge myself and my body. I can really feel the difference I am so much stronger and flexible. Massive thank you!
