Anna Winstanley MCSP
I came to Pilates after attending a Kinetic Control course, where I learned that my own hip pain was down to muscle imbalance. My hip pain eased after only a few sessions of Pilates, and I was sold on the Pilates concept. Since my initial Pilates training I have developed a practice which encourages clients to explore movement in a way which feels comfortable for them, whatever their starting point. I believe the the benefits of Pilates are realised through regular practice and time – there is no quick fix or rapid results!
