I have just started my second set of 6 classes with Betsy. I absolutely love it! The Pilates Reformer is a great piece of equipment and Betsy is so patient with me.
Everything is explained so well and I’ve actually found some long lost muscles!
I am totally converted and will definitely be keeping this up with Betsy.
I thought I would be a bit nervous with the 1-1 sessions but was made to feel totally at ease.
Thank you so much Betsy.

North Berwick Pilates class

Since joining this class I have seen both my own and other students’ Pilates practice improve and my body is feeling the benefits. I would highly recommend Betsy as a teacher. Her classes are both challenging and fun. The structure of the classical approach ensures that as you (and your body!) learn, you can start to combine improvements into your daily life that make a big difference to how your body feels. Easily the best fitness programme that I have worked with.

Having signed up for a Yoga and Pilates Retreat earlier this year, I was in a panic about not having done any Pilates for a few years and worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up, then a flier popped through my door, just at the right time, and I found Betsy!
She offered me a “quick refresher” course on a one-to-one basis on the reformer to gt me “retreat ready” and I haven’t looked back.
Her enthusiasm and expertise are infectious, she encourages me to push myself while still feeling I am in control of how much I am doing.
After just a few weeks I was ready for my retreat and the instructor there commented on my good technique.
I have continued to have one-to-one sessions on the reformer as well as joining a mat class and I feel much better in myself for it.
My posture is better, I sleep better and I feel much more flexible.
there are many Pilates classes in my area – mostly run by fitness instructors who have studied Pilates as an “add-on” to their own qualifications.  Betsy is the real deal and is a fully trained and qualified Pilates and Yoga instructor – the difference is immediately obvious when you attend one of her classes.
I’m so glad I found Betsy and I hope to train under her guidance for many years to come.

“I have worked closely with Betsy for more than six months and she has been constantly flexible in trying to deal with my very particular needs. I have Parkinson’s and have pretty much constant back pain. Betsy has at least three entirely different programmes which she takes me through according to my general wellbeing at any particular time. By her relentless focus on posture Betsy has undoubtedly contributed substantially to the improvement in my condition which has taken place in the period we have been working together. I have been sufficiently impressed by how we have progressed that I am planning to carry on working with her via Skype supplemented by occasional visits to East Lothian in Scotland. My main regret, assuming we can make this work, is that I won’t have regular access to the Reformer which is an immensely versatile piece of equipment which can be adopted to focus on just about any major muscle in the body.”

“I have been looking for a good Pilates teacher for several years and found one in Betsy this year. Before I retired, I used to teach teachers to teach and Betsy not only ticks all the boxes, but has the human holistic approach. She takes the student from where they are to where they can be, at their own pace, giving inspiration and encouragement on the way.

I first started Pilates with Betsy in October 2015. After years of muscle pain due to fibromyalgia, she introduced me to her reformer and bingo I loved it. With Betsy’s encouragement I have reached a level I never dreamed I could. She is a very patient and caring teacher and as other clients have testified she instinctively knows how far to gently push you into trying different routines as you get stronger. Betsy you will be sadly missed, what will we do without you? I feel so much stronger thanks to Betsy. If you get the chance to join a class go for it, you won’t regret it she is brilliant.

“I have enjoyed Betsy’s Pilates over the last few months thanks to a friend’s recommendation. They are the best I have tried. I regularly suffered from bad back but since going to her class on a weekly basis, I have not had to go for any treatments. Betsy pushes you in a gentle way and your body does the rest. Without realising it, you end up perfectly adjusted. She is simply great.

Judy, age 78 – 65+ Pilates

I have greatly enjoyed the weekly Pilates for 65+ classes with Betsy. They were beneficial to my overall health and strength while being good fun because of Betsy’s sympathetic understanding of the difficulties of older bodies and her good sense of humour. She never makes one feel inadequate. I am very sorry that the classes have to end because of her relocation.
