Thank you Nicky for your own special brand of ingenious teaching, delivered with positivity and kindness. Attending Pilates and Stretch classes for over 3 years with Nicky has turned my life around. She has facilitated the best thing that I have ever done for my body. In spite of some osteoarthritis I am now strong, flexible and at 65 have a renewed ability to enjoy life!
