Back on the bike
on 15 Sep 2014 by Gavin | Occupation: Retail Manager
I have always suffered from lower back pain and started cycling seriously over 7 years ago. I had issues with sciatica over the last couple of years and then found out a few months ago that I had a prolapsed disc. After an awkward fall in the spring, I ended up being pretty much immobilised. After a fairly dramatic scan result, 2 of my doctors told me that I needed an operation. Fortunately I was recommended to see TeeJay, who told me he was confident he could get me back walking and eventually cycling. Within 6 weeks I was back walking and I have now a better posture than I have had for a long time. I am now confident that I will be able to be active for many years to come as I keep on my weekly Pilates routine. I would recommend anyone with back issues to seek Teejay’s help; I am already planning next season’s racing calendar.
Back and Neck Pain
on 11 Sep 2014 by Hayley Greenfield | Occupation: Zumba Instructor/Nail Tech
Teejay has been helping me since September. I am a Zumba instructor and nail technician so as you can imagine I’m abusing my back and neck on a daily basis. I’ve had injections in my neck for a slipped disk and was seeing a Physio on a regular basis. I’ve been doing Pilates for 9 months now and can honestly say that Teejay has helped me big time! I haven’t needed to see my Physio for a very long time and really feel that the Pilates has changed my life and well being! Thank you Teejay for all your help! You’re stuck with me on a long term basis!!
Customer of Applied Pilates
on 29 Jul 2014 by Brian | Occupation: Company Director
I have been attending Applied Pilates for over three years. TJ Sogunro is the owner and instructor and is an excellent teacher, adding new equipment to enhance the range of exercises and varying them to suit the needs of his customers. I began to attend Applied Pilates having had a major heart operation. There is no doubt that it has contributed significantly to my complete recovery. I recommend him and his company unreservedly.
Gone but not forgotten

I have been attending a weekly class for 7 months and it has been the best exercise ever. I would like to thank Susan and Teejay for the patient way they pass on their knowledge and expertise. I am moving to Surrey and will miss them. It has been a joy.
Remarkable improvements for headaches
on 7 Jun 2014 by James | Occupation: Marketing
After around 9 months of almost daily headaches caused by neck pain, I found this site and read the reviews, which encouraged me to give applied pilates a go. It’s been life changing as I’ve seen significant reductions in the occurrence and severity of headaches after only a few months, so I wanted to leave a review to recommend to anyone suffering similar problems to give it a try! The classes have a great atmosphere and it feels great to be getting back to fitness after a long time out with this injury. I tried lots of different treatments before this, including chiropractors and massages, but none made such a difference. Thanks Teejay – your help has been greatly appreciated! 🙂

I have been suffering back pain for the last 3 months and the osteopath who I was seeing 3 times a week was not helping. Within 2 sessions with Teejay I could see a remarkable difference! I was very nervous about starting Applied Pilates I had never done it before and found it very daunting looking at all these strange machines but as soon as I walked into the studio Teejay put me at ease – he was calm and reassuring, knowing my limits not to cause more pain but pushing me to see results. Teejay explained everything clearly and had lots of patience with a true novice! I would definitely recommend the Applied Pilates Studio it has made a real difference to my everyday life by not being in constant pain, being able to get a nights sleep, getting on the floor to play with my kids, working on my core muscles and posture. Thank you Teejay!

I had suffered from a chronic pain condition for a long time which had knocked my confidence, and gradually sapped my strength. My bodyweight was right down and I was having trouble doing just than normal things everyday without pain. I started seeing Teejay last July, and within just a few months my pain threshold and relative strength grew hugely. I’m much more confident in so many areas now, thanks to regular sessions with activities built around my needs, and sound advice on all kinds of aspects of my fitness. Many thanks Teejay 🙂

I had approx 8 years of discomfort having torn a disc in my lower back in my early 30’s, during those years I tried Osteopaths x2, Physio, Steroid Injections, Bowens and Biofeedback, nothing completely left me pain free, couldn’t imagine what the next 10 years would bring. It was suggested at the Osteopaths Training Centre to maybe try Pilates, that’s how I found Teejay. He was very thorough, went through all my ailments and started me on a weekly exercise routine. Within 3 months I was pain free, couldn’t quite believe it. I was asked to go back to the Osteopaths Training Centre during their exam time and they were amazed at the change in my shape after such a short time and said Teejay was a Miracle Worker! It has now been 4 years and I feel fitter than ever. I ran my first 12k this year and haven’t had a twinge from my back. Pilates with Teejay isn’t quite like going to a normal Pilates class, most people imagine Pilates as being like a gentle yoga exercises, but using the Applied Pilates machines it is like going to the gym for a workout, it can be as easy or as difficult as you want. I would definitely recommend Teejay to anyone having issues, not just with their back, but pretty much the whole body.

Back pain started for me about 4 years ago. I have played most of my career with injuries but my back stopped me completely. In the 4 years since it started, I have visited all manner of healers, surgeons, physios and chiros that have tried to help with varying degrees of benefit. Nothing and nobody has made my back feel pain free and “athletic” again. It has only been a couple of weeks but it has changed my outlook completely! Thank you Teejay! See you next week!!
Saved my teaching career
on 28 Apr 2014 by Michelle | Occupation: Ballet Teacher
I badly injured my lower back (herniated disc) and after over 2 years of physiotherapy, no one was able to help me. I couldnt even do simple every day things like make the bed or wash the dishes. I was petrified to move, despite my work demanding a great deal of physical activity. Teejay always tailors exercises to suit everyone’s individual needs so I felt very safe in his class, and he had all the answers to my many questions which helped reassure me. I have now been doing Pilates with Teejay for over 4 years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I can do my job without constant pain and can do much more every day things. I definitely feel I have my life back now and in a lot of ways I am much stronger than before my injury. Thank you Teejay!
