"5 great pilates sessions! "

About: St Helens Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I attended 5 Pilates sessions at St Helens' Hospital with physiotherapist Kate. I was referred there after having physio, to improve my weak back.

I enjoyed the Pilates sessions and my back feels much stronger. Kate helped us all to feel at ease. She is an excellent teacher. She explained what we were going to do and demonstrated all of the excercises. I thoroughly enjoyed the Pilates sessions and have learnt a lot. My thanks to Kate.

I think the Pilates sessions are a super idea, so good for people who have weak backs, and would also benefit people who have had other problems, such as knee or shoulder injuries.
