More please! I love the 1.5 hour duration and have learnt a lot!
Even though I've been going to Pilates classes for a very long time and see Gwendalyn regularly for neck problems, I learnt heaps! Have already started the nightly exercises
It's very good to focus on one topic. This session on neck, shoulders etc was very useful to me. Thanks!
Very informative and practical, and personal. Thank you!
Very informative and applicable for hiking/walking prep. Although I'm reasonably fit I certainly felt it in my thighs for a few days. Well done!
It was lovely to see you and really enjoyed the class and your expertise. You are a well of knowledge.

Feeling tight in the shoulders? Sick of getting headaches? Sitting at a computer for long periods often creates poor upper body posture which leads to pain, stiffness and often headaches.
Understand what positions of the head and neck contribute to this dysfunction and learn many useful physio exercises to help improve posture. Rachel will also teach you a short daily routine to strengthen this part of your body.

What does Oov stand for? Have you noticed these strange looking Pilates props in the studio? Have you experienced a few exercises on the Oov and want to learn more? We are really excited to be the first Pilates studio in Adelaide to offer Oov Mat classes.

Have you always wanted to be more flexible? Perhaps you are envious of ballet dancers and their effortless movement? Rachel will draw upon her 18 years of classical ballet experience to teach participants many different stretches to improve flexibility.
Some stretches will utilise props to assist in stretching muscles out. You’ll be amazed at the difference that good stretching can make!

Are the only slings you’ve heard of for broken arms? When certain muscles work in synergy, greater power is developed in certain movements. Anatomists have identified 5 different types of slings and from a Pilates perspective, they are the hidden secret to boost your technique.
Learn which muscles groups make up these slings and Rachel will teach many familiar Pilates exercises with sling cues to demonstrate this extra power.
