Exclusive Private Studio in Tidbury Green, Solihull:
As a Ballroom and Latin dance teacher, posture and regular stretching of muscles is of paramount importance but we just don't do enough of it.
I have been attending Pilates classes with Ann for about 18 months now, and have seen a significant difference in my own posture.
I am so much more aware of my own muscles; which ones need more stretching, and what causes some to become too tight. Ann's teaching is superlative, and you really feel the difference when you have to miss a class.
Pilates has really changed my thinking, and importantly has allowed me to create some time for myself in a busy schedule, thus allowing me to be so much more effective at what I do.
Having applied some Pilates principles within my own dance teaching, I am now really excited to be working with Ann to develop Barre Pilates classes. I can't wait!

One to one sessions:
Small classes of 4-6 people:
I have just completed a seated programme of Clinical Pilates with Ann Baddeley. It has exceeded my expectations. I presented to her with two arthritic knees, a history of vertigo and in 2006 I broke my back (flung off a camel in the Sahara desert). Ann has given me the ability and confidence to achieve much more movement than I thought possible. I used to find it difficult to get up off low seats and impossible to get out of the back seat of low 2-door cars, etc. Now my whole body feels stronger and more supported by my core muscles, which in turn has given me a renewed confidence in my ability to do things I was afraid of e.g. walking on slippery surfaces, snow, getting up from the ground/floor/bath etc. Ann is an exceptional very experienced instructor, she can intuitively see what needs strength and attention. All the Pilates movements are within the capacity of any age group - I am 72. Thank you, Ann Baddeley!
