"I can't recommend Enliven health highly enough to any new mothers who want to start getting their pre-baby body back. After my c-section I was amazed how little strength I had but was worried about doing the wrong exercises and causing myself injury. Alex provides friendly and professional classes that have enabled me to get back into exercise safely and effectively - I have seen such a difference to my core strength already. Knowing a qualified physiotherapist is guiding me through the class is a huge benefit to me as I can trust her to ensure I am doing the right things. I wish this was about to help me recover after the birth of my first child!"

"Alex is one of the most professional Physiotherapists I have had the pleasure to meet. Having had to seek help - following a pillion passenger accident - for 40 years, I consider myself well qualified to comment. Her in-depth and inclusive assessments and treatment are matched only by her passion for her chosen vocation. I can't recommend her enough."

"As someone who has a history of back and various joint issues, it was refreshing to find someone who took the time to listen in order to understand how best to help me. As well as treating me for some acute problems on a few occasions, Alex has also advised on posture and Pilates based exercises to address the long standing problems I have had. After every session, I have felt considerably better and experienced more pain relief than with any other method of treatment that I have tried in the past. Guided by her expertise, I am now more confident going forward, of leading a happier, healthier, pain free life."

"I can definitely recommend Alex for post natal Pilates. She is a very pleasant, straightforward and knowledgeable instructor. It really helps that she is also a Physio and you always feel like you are in good hands."

"I have recently joined Enliven Classes after my previous Pilates Teacher just "left" overnight some months ago. Alex is incredibly Professional and friendly and with also being a qualified Physio she totally and quickly understands any issues with injuries, pain and restrictions in movement. In class she pays close attention to every person and any conditions. I know Pilates helps my knee condition and I have missed not being able to do it for some months and I am so happy to have found such a great teacher so local to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Enliven Health."

"Alex is an amazing pilates teacher. She is totally professional, understanding and the classes are not big being just 4 of us in total it was perfect. Alex is very hands on which is what we particularly like being our first ever class and not knowing any moves! My mother who is (76) and I started on the beginners course and immediately loved it. We have already booked our next course and can't wait."

Alex also tailors exercises to the specific needs of each individual so that you get the most out of her workshops and class series. Definitely recommend for mums and mums-to-be."

"After having back problems for over a decade and seeing many different physios, chiropractors and other specialists I was sent to a pain management residential programme where it was recommended I do APPI Pilates! Luckily for me there was Alex just down the road from me as this is a specialist area. I had an initial consultation which was so relaxed even though in a very anxious person. Alex was so friendly and warm. I now attended weekly Pilates classes to try and strengthen my core. My 13 year old daughter has the exact same problems as me and a few more so I took her to see Alex. My daughter felt at ease and now joins me at the classes. It's such a small group that Alex can check us all individually to make sure we are all doing it right. I can highly recommend Enliven Health and Alex."

"My dream combination of physio, Pilates teacher and trained to do acupuncture! I had an initial assessment that was really comprehensive and Alex really listened and understood my problems. She gave me some acupuncture, physio massage and showed me a few Pilates exercises to go at home. The clinic is lovely with lots of free parking nearby. I also joined one of her Clinical Pilates classes. These are held in small venues and class size kept small so we have very individualised attention. We have progressed in each class and I feel I have a toolbox of skills to manage my pain. I am sleeping better and use fewer painkillers. It's the small details that really reflect the quality of Alex's work. Supplying water at the classes means I just have to arrive and she gives print outs of the exercises to work on at home if we wish."

"I really enjoyed the mother and baby pilates class, only sorry that I didn't start sooner. The location is really accessible, the exercises are perfect for new mums and little ones can come along and do what they inevitably do which is never a problem...great. Would definitely recommend."

"Alex is an excellent Pilates teacher - encouraging, effective and supportive. I've benefited considerably from her classes. My only comment would be that we do tend to do the same things each week and I would like to step up a level if at all possible, otherwise I won't feel as if I'm progressing and will lose interest. Typical bloke, I'm afraid!"
