'My body felt like jelly after having my third child. After only four sessions of Pilates with Sally I felt a surge of strength and got a good report from the physio - something I hadn't had all year! Sally has given me the energy to keep going' 

 (Camillla Cavendish, award winning journalist for The Times)

'Sally is a wonderful teacher and the best I've had so far. Always in a good mood her enthusiasm and well spiritness is contagious. Her teaching is top notch, each class is different so it is never too repetitive but enough to sense progress. She pays attention to details pushing you to do things right. I can highly recommend her!'                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                (Stefan Jentzsch, yoga Client)

'Six and seven years ago I was involved in two major road accidents and suffered whiplash and upper and lower back injuries. Since then I have been having massage on a regular basis from a sports and remedial massage therapist to keep myself mobile. Since starting yoga classes on a weekly basis about three months ago I find myself more flexible and am becoming less reliant on the massage treatment. I also find I am sleeping better and not waking up stiff in the morning. Thank you Sally for helping to get this body back into shape'.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         (Ron Newton 64yrs young, yoga client)

'As a yoga teacher myself, I set pretty high standards and Sally met all of them and more. Her teaching is of a high standard, her adjustments are good and she is really good fun. I would recommend her teaching to everyone'.

Retreat testimonials

'Thanks so much for a lovely yoga weekend. The venue was extremely comfortable and the food was amazing. I could easily become a vegetarian if I was able to eat like that every day.  I really enjoyed the yoga and pilates. It was hard work at times but I felt so good after it (definitely two inches taller!). And of course the relaxation at the end just never seemed long enough.  The whole vibe was so relaxing and enjoyable – an absolute pleasure'.

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the weekend. It exceeded our expectations. The Yoga/Pilates were energizing, the food was fabulous and the company was great fun! Couldn't ask for a better combination. 
We're both bitten with the yoga bug. 
(J Jackson, July 2013)

'I honestly had the most wonderful week at the Hacienda. We were so lucky with the lovely group we had, so relaxed and supportive, as well as with the great weather. And I have made so many friends. The healthy meals were completely delicious and combined with all the Pilates and yoga means that I have the best ab strength and definition I've seen in years! The teaching from Sally was excellent, and I love that while you take things seriously, there was always room for laughter. I was given some great adjustments that will make a massive difference to my practice, so thanks so much for everything! I'd go back in an instant!
(Dr T Johnson, The Hacienda, Spain June 2013)

'Hi Sally. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed myself last weekend, the food was really good and I rediscovered my interest in yoga and am trying to find a class near home that suits me. I think you really have the balance just rightwith enough free time to wash your hair and get some fresh air in between some really good classes. The accommodation was very comfortable and the treatments were an added bonus. really hope I can come on another retreat - Thank you again.'

Loved the classes, the food was delicious and you created a lovely warm and gentle atmosphere throughout the weekend',
(Caroline Edwards, Weekend Retreat, January 2011)

'Finding this retreat with you was, for me like finding a diamond on a sandy beach. The other friends who have come along to make this retreat have been a breath of fresh air. I haven't laughed, relaxed, stretched for so long. The food was a welcome experience and I enjoyed everything about eating vegetarian for the week'.
(Alison & Steve Ellis, Portugal Retreat 2010)
