I have suffered with back pain for years, and since working as a midwife have found that my back is simply not strong enough for the job! I tried other pilates classes, big groups taught in gyms by fitness instructors but didn’t feel that it was helping. I cycled past LVP one day a few months ago and thought maybe it was worth spending the extra money to get expert training. I was right. In the past three months I have attended my mat class every week – I love it! Alistair is brilliant and clearly very knowledgable in his field. The class is tiny, with a maximum of four of us, and the difference in the level of attention that this brings is clear. My back pain is reduced and I am already noticing improvements in my posture and strength. It is worth every penny; I look forward to my class every week and even practice at home – the first time in my life I have actively enjoyed exercise!
