"We are really looking forward to another week of classes. The benefit we are receiving from them is enormous. Somehow you manage to guide us safely through exercises which quickly tone and strengthen the muscles but without the sense of strain and soreness that always seemed to accompany other forms of exercise. I really think I know what abs might look like on me!" Jane and Phil
"I have joined your library and had a look and was amazed by the vast and rich content which should keep me busy for a while. Thank you". Marcel
"Wendy, my 15 year old was convinced that you were on the front page of our paper on Saturday, and he was very impressed... (he'd met you whilst doing a warm-up session with me, and struggled to touch his toes).... it was Minnie Driver... so now you've shifted from cult leader to movie star! You're quite a legend in this house – there was even talk of a family session, but somehow I doubt that will happen!" Charlotte
"I saw your video of the 'Boomerang' on the Oxford Department for Continuing Education, Curious Minds website under the Royal Academy of Dance. I liked the way you explained the process of the 'Boomerang' and tried it with some success!! On the strength of that I am now enjoying your video library. I have found the knee and hands video really helpful, your very exacting explanation of these exercises is so good. I have also been trying some of the more advance routines too". Rita
"I do love your videos and must make myself do more because I do feel so much better afterwards!" Maggi

"Thank you so much for all the fantastic Pilates classes. It is great to work out the body from the inside out, but also to 'escape' from everything else going on in life. I always come away feeling relaxed"
- Chris -
"I was in rehearsal for my show yesterday and everyone was lacking energy so I made them do some Pilates neck stretches, shoulder shrugs and roll downs…I channelled your voice!"
- Michaela, Royal Academy of Dance -
"It's amazing to come out of a class and feel as though you've had a massage when really you've just worked everything really hard. My posture is amazing, and my clothes fit better after only 5 classes."
- Charlotte, Royal Academy of Dance -
"It's been a complete revelation for me and I can't thank Wendy enough for her expert help, excellent teaching and for her thorough and varied classes!"

"Oh, Wendy, that was a superb class and experience. I love all the thought cues. That works so well for me. I could feel your hot pilates hand!I will very much look forward to our session at 9.30 tomorrow. I have found my golf ball!"
I just wanted to thank you for the absolutely mega chair/standing classes.
Not only have I thoroughly enjoyed them, but I cannot tell you how fabulous I feel after doing them. I feel as if I can swish along a Parisian catwalk ! Legs up to my ears - my entire body feels long & strong - & my neck & shoulders open & broad, as if something warm & gorgeous has been poured all over them. I also feel focused & positive, which is a huge bonus any time, but particularly special right now.
Wendy, I admit, it took me a long time to try the ‘chair’ class. Shame on me. I wasn’t convinced it would be beneficial, but my curiosity got the better of me - & thank goodness it did.
Coupled with your sincere & encouraging approach, I consider myself very lucky to be part of the wonderful world you create.
Huge hug & much love

"Thank you, thank you Wendy for today’s chair/standing class. I absolutely loved it. It gave me many ideas for what I can do when sitting at my desk as I seem to do endlessly. You are so empowering as a person and help us all live better lives and to be thankful for our bodies and our health.
Your classes are the Rolls Royce of Pilates!
""My week doesn’t seem complete if I have had to miss a class. Also your help and work with my hamstrings and knees has just been amazing and made soooo much difference. My son who is an orthopaedic surgeon is
""I feel so much better again. And when I am on a train or tube and feeling vulnerable like this morning, I close my eyes, listen to your voice, and bring my core back into gear!""
""Thank you for today every time I see you I feel so amazing throughout the day, I have to do your videos so I feel I'm with you every day. I want to do something with you every single day, in person and video. And thank you so much, you are doing so much good to me. I will not let myself down, I will not let you down"."
"We are using your videos to keep Pilates going. I just finished 46 47 48
sequence this morning. I wanted to let you know that we are using them
as the time difference doesn’t allow us to do live zoom classes. We are 7
hours behind you!
You are a miracle worker and
we are so lucky to have you on the video library. I just love your
reassuring and calm voice."
"Actually got round to using the video library for a couple of sessions today - brilliant! why didn't I get into it earlier - just what I need!"
"I just joined your library and did one of your recorded online classes this morning. Just fabulous. I've missed you."
"I couldn’t find the unmute button in time but wanted to say that my back felt so much better after the session – so thank-you.
Also, I’ve just set up a payment for the video sessions"
"It was great to do the class on Thursday and I am really enjoying the video library. Thank you so much "
"Watch a cat, as it lazily opens its eyes, slowly looks around, and gradually prepares to rise after a nap. First, it gradually rises on its hindquarters and then gradually lowers itself again, at the same time sprawling out on the floor, leisurely stretching its forepaws (with extended claws) and legs. Observe closely how all its back muscles actually ripple as it stretches and relaxes itself.... Observe, too, how cats sleep - utterly relaxed whether they happen to be lying on their back, side or belly, Contrology exercises emphasize the need for this constant stretching and relaxing"
