I have suffered back problems over the last 20 years and have been very diligent in trying to a counter these problems with exercise. However it wasn’t until 2 years ago when I came to Shonna for physiotherapy and she recommended me to do the Pilates classes that I have finally found an exercise class that has actually helped. After years of exercising without proper instruction, to have someone with such a great anatomical understanding to monitor me as I exercise is invaluable. She has a fantastic ability to tailor the exercise for your individual needs and to continually build on your strength and ability – without you even knowing it! In the last 2 years Shonna has corrected bad postural habits I have developed due to years of back problems and inappropriate exercises, and has taught me to use the right muscles to prevent further flare-ups. I have developed core strength that I didn’t know existed (or was even possible to attain after having 2 kids) and my back and posture has never been better.
Shonna is a highly positive and motivated instructor. I now go 3 times a week and I can’t get enough. Her classes are never the same and her enthusiasm never wanes. Not only have I never felt stronger, the classes are a blast and I always look forward to the next one!
