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!!!

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.

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.

After attending Louise's classes for over a year I can honestly say that signing up for her Pilates classes was one of the best things I ever did. Louise is a fantastic instructor and motivator. She varies the classes each week so that whilst there are familiar moves it is always fun, interesting and we're learning something new. She also ensures that we're all performing the exercises correctly and provides modifications and progressions where applicable. Louise's enthusiasm for Pilates is infectious and I always look forward to my weekly class.

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!

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!

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.

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

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!

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 🙂

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!

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 🙂

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!!

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.

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.

Louise is fantastic, each session, run from her relaxing, gorgeous studio, is well planned, varied and actually good fun. She offers progressions for each exercise which you decide if you're up to that day. Louise knows her clients well and suggests alternatives for people with health problems. I recommend Inreach Pilates, I leave each session feeling taller, more relaxed and flexible, and happier.

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!

Since January 2019 I have improved my core strength and balance and rid myself of a long-standing (on one leg😂) knee problem. All this with the help, support and encouragement of Louise at InReach Pilates. Our classes are fun and challenging in equal measure. Cannot praise too highly.

Louise really cares for her clients and seeks to adapt the practice to suit a person's needs. When I started her class I struggled to stand for even a short time due to a groin injury and a lack of core strength. After a few lessons I'd gained enough core strength and eased the groin pain to do the static standing and balance poses. I'd recommend Louise most highly.

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! 🙂

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.

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!

So glad I found In Reach Pilates and Louise. I've been going to her classes for several months now and am delighted at how much stronger and flexible I've become. Louise makes the classes fun and ensures we all maintain good posture and makes you really want to work on your Pilates. I always leave the class feeling good and can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Louise for what you've done for me.

I've attended Pilates classes with louise for over a year now and she's a fabulous teacher! She will correct your posture to ensure you get the most out of the exercises and feel the maximum benefit from the class. Her sessions are constantly changing and target all the key areas. Pilates has really helped to relieve my back neck and shoulder pain, so is really worth a try!

This is an excellent pilates class. Each session is different to the last and Louise clearly puts lots of time and effort into her planning. It's a must for a tired old teacher like myself but I would recommend it to anyone regardless of their job. It teaches you lots about posture, balance and core stability and strength. Can't do without it now

Louise is a star, and what with the Pleasure Bands and the cries of Clench! you can almost forget the pain and suffering. Great for backs, necks, and various bits that I wasn't previously conscious of possessing. Recommended.
