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.

“I am desperately sorry that you, Betsy, will be leaving as I felt that I really benefited from my classes with you. I have multiple back problems but you always, sympathetically, found a way to help me tackle the exercises on the Pilates Reformer. Not only did that make me feel fitter but also, there is no doubt, my mobility and ability greatly improved. Also my energy levels increased and I always left your classes feeling much younger – that cannot be bad! Betsy is a lovely lady and I will miss her and her classes.”



“I really enjoy Betsy’s classes, she has a lovely teaching style which is very supportive, but also challenging if you want to be challenged. She is very good at giving individual guidance within the class while at the same time maintaining the flow of the session and making it fun. I started as a complete beginner in her Pilates class and liked her teaching and the friendly atmosphere of the group so much that I decided to sign up for her yoga class too. I have tried one or two other yoga classes since then at spas, but the quality of the teaching is never quite as good as Betsy’s! After just a few months I can’t believe how much more resilient and dependable my body feels.

“Thank you for the session today. Oddly enjoyable! You are an astounding teacher and enabler. I have always been a bit wary of allowing folk to witness my weird hip up close. You, however, have made it all easy to do…not ALL the exercises, I hasten to add. Some of them are quite demanding! I am sad to see you leave.”


“You have been inspirational. My back and ankle have noticeably improved and I am now convinced to do Pilates in the future. Thank you!”


“Betsy was a wonderful addition to our team of class Instructors at our fitness club. Her bespoke professional approach to Pilates and her passion and knowledge was outstanding. We really miss having her as part of our team.”

“I joined Betsy’s Pilates Beginners classes in early 2015 following an injury to my lower back. The intention was to develop better core strength to avoid repeatedly hurting myself. Since starting I have found that I really enjoy the classes and look forward to Wednesday evenings. I have tried to analyse what it is that makes the classes so enjoyable and ended up with the following reasons, they are not is order of preference as I don’t think I have one so take your pick about what is important to you. 1) Having started classes through injury, Betsy has made sure that whatever exercise I do, the injury is taken into consideration so as to avoid making it worse. There are others in the class with joint/injury concerns and these are also taken into account. This shows a high level of awareness from Betsy to each of her students. 2) The classes are FUN, while you will work hard there is always a sense that what ever it is you are doing, however hard you are finding it, it is fun. 3) The beginners classes follow a set routine so you do much the same exercises each week, this means you can see that you are improving, exercises that you really struggled with at the beginning become noticeably easier and your technique improves. 4) As you improve and feel you want to be challenged further, Betsy runs “Improver” classes. I am not ready for those yet. 5) The classes are small so there is enough time for each person to get some 1-2-1 attention, having done other group exercise classes this I feel is important. 6) There is good mix of men and women, I don’t know but I think this may be unusual. So don’t worry about being the only male in the class. So, take your pick. Those are the reasons I enjoy the classes, would I recommend them to my best friend? Yes I would.””

“For a long time, I have been attracted to the thought of Pilates as a form of exercise but I have never had the courage to start or found a class to suit my schedule. This has changed and I am loving it. Betsy’s clarity of explanation, patience and unwavering support & encouragement have kept me going and I now feel that I am getting so much out of each class and Pilates as a whole – it is just what I had hoped it would be. Thank you Betsy!!”

“It’s great to have such an accomplished teacher like Betsy with us, who is happy to teach all standards and ages, and able to teach more advanced postures in a relaxed fashion.
