Back pain gone!
on 17 Nov 2016 by Eleanor | Occupation: Senior Buying Manager
After back surgery to remove a prolapsed disc I was still experiencing intermittent back pain 2 yrs later despite regular osteopath visits. I was recommended to clinical pilates and wish I had known about it years ago. My back pain has disappeared thanks to Teejay and Susan who have been supportive and fantastic teachers. My core strength has improved massively, back pain has been cured and now take weekly classes to maintain my well being. The classes are small and friendly and very welcoming. I can’t recommend the Applied Pilates too highly, excellent results and feel like I have a new lease of life.
Why didn’t I start years ago!

After years of physios telling me “Pilates, pilates, pilates!” to help my back, I finally listened and started coming to group sessions with Teejay and Susan. After just 4 short months I have seen a noticeable improvement in my strength and have considerably less discomfort in my lower back. I find that many of the techniques I am learning are starting to become instinctive in my everyday life and this is making a big difference.
I thoroughly enjoy the group sessions – there is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere that is warm and welcoming, and it is also inspiring to watch those who are more advanced and know what I might be able to do one day!
I wish I had started years ago – thanks Teejay and Susan!

I have been attending Teejay’s classes for over 10 years. Initially I met him when he ran a Pilates mat class and he was able to help beginners and the more advanced in the class by differentiating the exercises. He could always adapt them too if you had a particular injury or problem. As soon as he set up this studio to run classes I signed up. Both he and Susan are so knowledgeable and friendly. The classes are enjoyable but you also work hard! I rarely miss a class because it has kept my back problem at bay and it is the only way I have found to keep my core strong.

Following treatment by Teejay for a football injury I started Pilates with Teejay and Susan. It has helped increase muscle strength and improved my core strength. The equipment allows muscles to be trained in isolation and in a controlled way.
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
on 25 Feb 2015 by Lucy | Occupation: Teacher
I feel so fortunate to have found Applied Pilates, it has been a true Godsend. My initial 15 minutes with Teejay were spent with me in desperate tears, I’d pretty much hit rock bottom with my health, I couldn’t face the state I’d got into from years of ineffective treatment for E.D.S symptoms and subsequent complete lack of exercise and the sports I had previously loved. I really couldn’t see a way through this – everything felt too difficult, too painful and too risky to my overall failing state of health.
So – here I am, one year on… After some initial 1:1 pilates sessions with Teejay, I now have the ability and belief in myself to attend a weekly group session. Teejay and Susan have nurtured the confidence in me to fully trust their Applied Pilates system, I now know that by following the exercise programme they have tailored to me I will not injure myself while using their reformer machines. I am so grateful to have happened upon their advertisement, I have gone from needing to walk with sticks for support, zero exercise, extremely reduced muscle mass, body strength and body confidence to now having built muscle in specific areas such as my hips, knees, core, neck, shoulders and back. My body is able to support itself now without the need for sticks, I only occasionally use my knee and wrist braces and when I do need additional help and a muscle has spasmed at work, I’ ll make a treatment appointment with Teejay and an hour later life continues – not as was in the past and I’d have to spend a week out off work as my muscle gradually relaxed. I honestly cannot rate Teejay, Susan and Applied Pilates enough – if you are in the situation I was in a year ago – go visit for that free 15 minutes, it may just change your life – as it has mine.

A very safe and enjoyable method to stay fit and flexible. Classes are kept small and are friendly and very professional. Would recommend them to anyone.

I first found Teejay in Aug 13, I could hardly walk with both back and knee issues (mostly spine problems). He has completely sorted me out and I can walk with very few issues. To my wife’s joy I am now able to walk around Westfield Shopping Centre, no mean feat, though I am not sure whether that is good or bad for the wallet!
If you are reading this considering whether to try DO NOT DELAY just see Teejay he is a modern day miracle worker.
Keeps you young!

I would recommend Teejay’s and Susan’s classes to anyone! They have helped me enormously during the past year when I have been looking after my grandson, aged nearly 2 now. I have felt strong enough to lift him into his car seat, high chair, cot etc with no problems at all. Applied pilates gives you strength and flexibility in middle age and beyond!
I hate exercise!
on 5 Feb 2015 by Arianne | Occupation: Designer
Following years of pain and 2 operations on a prolapsed disc, I started Teejay’s Pilates classes about 2 years ago with a programme of exercises tailored to my specific problem. Over that period my back health has improved significantly along with the quality of my life. I hate any form of exercise but this is one class I would not want to give up!
Still going strong!
on 5 Feb 2015 by Gill Williams | Occupation: Teacher
I suffered from lower back pain that was severely affecting my daily life. Teejay was recommended by my physiotherapist, and I noticed a difference after the very first session. Within a short time I was relatively pain free. Teejay and Susan’s expertise and easy, friendly manner combine to make the classes both very effective and enjoyable. So much so, it’s an essential part of my exercise routine and I’m still going 10 years on! Thank you, Teejay.
