If you thought Pilates was only for fit young people, you couldn't be more wrong.
The benefits gained by my older clients are valuable. Starting with simple, straight-forward exercises using a combination of equipment and mat based movements they’re always happy when they realise the potential for development.

When I started classes with Nuala I had been suffering with backpain due to Scoliosis for many years. I’m 86 years of age and when my Doctor recommended Nuala to me I was sceptical. However within a few sessions I noticed improvement. The painful spasms that came frequently reduced and the level of pain I experience daily reduced by at least 30%. It seems incredible to me. I will continue to work with Nuala knowing the benefit Pilates has brought to me - I wish I had discovered it sooner.
