What do people say about us?

“Have just completed Movement Principals with Janet last week. Fantastic course! So practical packed with information and Janet's gems she throws in as well - the best bits.”

Chloe, York

"Love Pilates sessions at Mi Pilates. Invariably professional yet fun, with detailed and precise instructions. Any ability and individual need catered for. Definitely recommended!!"

Anne, York

"I have suffered with chronic back pain for over 25 years and was eventually diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis in 2014. I have tried all sorts of treatments and classes but hadn’t done somatics. I can honestly say that after 4 x 1:1 sessions with Janet and some 1:1 Pilates I feel stronger, more mobile and pain free after each session. I’m looking forward to continuing classes and improving me movement patterns - thank you Janet."

Jane, Cambridgeshire
