TESTIMONIALS

"She has an uncanny eye for spotting anything about the body that is out of place and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the muscles of the body and how they interconnect. Her passion for Body-Mind Centering® and her patient and easy going manner make her an exceptional therapist." James de Sausmarez

 

I have been attending Andromeda's classes for the past 16 years which is testimony in itself. I have loved each and every class with her. She is so knowledgeable and caring. Knows every inch of the body and has always wonderful advice to give us all not to mention how relaxing it is. Caroline Casey

I have been a client of Andromeda's since 2006, so 14 Years and counting. Andromeda is responsible not only for the huge transformation of my physical wellbeing but for my journey into the Conscious Awareness of the Being. Working with Andromeda is like no other experience in getting to know your body, every single muscle, function, connection. Whether you are attending a group session or a one on one, you walk out feeling a complete difference in your posture, your body feels more open and supple and your mindset more focused. Everyone should have an Andromeda in your life and as a bonus she is one hell of a beautiful soul. Here's to many more years being part of this amazing journey. Victoria Dioh

I was recommended to book a One on One appointment with Andromeda some 18 months ago when my arthritic ankle was giving me serious mobility problems.  Since then, regular sessions have resulted in a huge improvement, maintaining flexibility and keeping me away from the operating theatre. I love Andromeda's expertise and her approach makes the hour rewarding and enjoyable. Chris Foster

I have attended Andromeda’s classes for many years and attribute this to the fact that I am in fairly good shape for a woman of advancing years! When I heard she had purchased a Reformer machine, I jumped at the chance to try it out. I heard that a Reformer was a great way to extend what can be achieved with mat work. It’s true! The Reformer enables you to stretch and exercise muscles in a whole new way. Andromeda’s experience combined with her knowledge of the human body enables her to plan a programme of different movements on the Reformer relevant to each client’s needs. Stephanie Foster

What can I say about Andromeda that does justice to her knowledge, empathy, understanding of and ability to put the body right? I have attended her classes for over 5 years and in that time she has enabled me to understand more fully how my body works and what to do to keep it functioning smoothly. When little or big hiccups occur, she is always there ready with the remedy through her hands-on approach, whilst engaging with the whole picture of what went wrong in the first place. I wholeheartedly endorse Andromeda as the go-to person for everyone. She employs humour and empathy and communicates effectively on a personal individual level. Stephanie Foster

Andromeda first helped me with body work in 2007 and she is nothing short of amazing. Her knowledge, combined with her peerless intuition brings extraordinary results and her down to earth pragmatism makes sure that everything she recommends outside of a session is very 'doable'. I'm only sad I no longer live in the area and can't attend her class any more. She is totally brilliant! Janet Gordon

I have been attending Pilates classes with Andromeda for many, many years. She has in-depth knowledge of every bone, muscle and knows how our how bodies function and can recognise within a very short period how to improve one’s issues and pains through correct exercise. I suffer from RA and also have had other issues with my health. Andromeda has helped my recovery with both which I am very appreciative. My doctors have acknowledged that Pilates type exercise is very beneficial to RA and I have not had a flare up for four years. Andromeda is an excellent and lovely teacher with a great sense of humour, the right knowledge and plenty of experience. Pirko Harvey

As a complete novice to Pilates, it was my wife who encouraged me to sign up for three sessions on the Reformer; a sophisticated, hugely versatile, floor mounted exercising device. The adjustable springs, pulleys and straps means it can be adapted to any fitness level and can focus on whole body workouts or areas of the body which need particular attention. I found being on the Reformer an enabling and defining experience and Andromeda’s eagle eye quickly identified challenges in my body to be followed up. Andromeda, who along with her warm personality, has great knowledge, empathy and expertise, making her a most engaging teacher. David Healey

reformer session

A one to one on the ‘Rudolf’ the Reformer is a hugely rewarding and enjoyable experience. It is an amazing piece of equipment and is suitable for all levels of expertise. I am 72 and have attended Andromeda’s classes on and off for a number of years. I did not find the Reformer with its straps, pulleys and moving carriage at all intimidating. I arrived for my first session with niggling sciatica. Andromeda, with her expertise and huge depth of knowledge about the body, tailored the exercises to the specific areas that needed attention. I can thoroughly recommend a one to one Reformer session or package with the delightful Andromeda. You will leave feeling energised and those niggling pains, a distant memory! Mags Healey

I have been attending Andromeda's classes for some time now and she is a remarkable teacher. She has an in depth knowledge about the systems and workings of the human body and translates this into her practice, pinpointing the origin of pain, injury etc...she then applies the appropriate movement and exercise to correct and heal. She is an outstanding teacher and motivator, her warm personality brings fun as well as learning to each session. I am delighted to have found Andromeda and her class and feel privileged to be her student. Bernadette Hennigan

Andromeda has taught me Pilates for nearly 20 years in a mixture of group classes and one on one sessions. I have always wanted to try the mat based work on the Reformer Machine so I was delighted when she announced that she had a machine. I have had 3 sessions so far and I would highly recommend it. The machine enables me to perform the exercises with greater ease and control. Andromeda expertly adjusts the springs to suit my strength and flexibility so that each exercise is challenging yet strangely satisfying. Leg circles and arm circles are so much easier to perform on the machine compared to the tension caused by gripping the band around my hands when performed on a mat! 

Andromeda is a fabulous teacher and you won't be disappointed by giving the Reformer sessions a try. It really will transform your Pilates practice. Somerset King

Once you meet Andromeda and experience her unique style of teaching, no one else will ever measure up again. Her classes not only cover a set of exercises, they teach you about your body, how it works, and the best way to take care of it. I suffer from osteoarthritis and last year I had a total knee replacement and without her advice and care I wouldn’t be as mobile as I am now. I can’t recommend her sessions enough. Nunzia Meola

I first saw Andromeda some 15 years ago when a physio told me my problems were too difficult for him to treat. My back was like mahogany, my sacrum locked solid and my IT band had gone numb. Over the years since, I have learned from Andromeda how to look after my body and how to ensure it heals quicker when I am injured. Our journey has involved her working with not just those major issues at the start but a plethora of other little injuries that could have turned into something more serious. She has an uncanny eye for spotting anything about the body that is out of place and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the muscles of the body and how they interconnect. Her passion for Body-Mind Centering® and her patient and easy going manner make her an exceptional therapist. Thanks to her I am still playing competitive tennis for my tennis club and hiking the fells across the world into my 60's and I am confident that with her help I shall continue doing so for many years to come.

15 years ago I attended Andromeda's Pilates class weekly to help with a sore back. I have been incredibly fortunate to still have her as one of my key ‘go to guru’s’. Not only do I now have a personalised plan to ensure my back continues to be relaxed and supple but I also have a great teacher. Her commitment to the wholeness of the mind, body and soul, her strive for continuous learning and her kind nature is utterly inspiring and has changed my life. Now, not only I but my two baby daughters visit her so that I can ensure they have the best start in life under her knowledge and guidance. Danielle Shap

I attended Andromeda's classes for several years before I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2010. She has helped me to maintain mobility and balance, encourages a positive outlook and advised on courses and events relating to Parkinson's. My symptoms remain slight and have not progressed. This may not have been the case without Andromeda. My grateful thanks to her. Alex Stewart

If you are interested in improving how your body works and want to learn things that you are unlikely to encounter in any other way, then look no further. The Touch and Movement online course worked on so many different levels it is hard to sum it up in a few words. Andromeda will speak to your mind, which will speak to your body, which will interact with your mind. A new type of awareness. I wish I knew about this stuff 20 years ago. I recommend that you experience it.  A great mix of theory and practice which ultimately invites you to develop a different relationship with your body and its inherent wisdom. George Andruszkiewicz

I am delighted that I joined Andromeda and Ralph’s online course Touch and Movement for eight weeks. This online course was well organised, well executed, well delivered, intellectual and gave me confidence and motivation. The course has made me mindful of everyday things I took for granted. I am aware of subtleties of what I am asking my body to do. I recommend any courses offered by Ralph and Andromeda. Zeezee Ranginkaman

online course

I joined Andromeda’s online classes at the suggestion of a friend,  at a time when in-person classes of any type were not possible. My initial fears that ‘virtual contact’ wouldn’t work for me were quickly dispelled. Andromeda has a depth of knowledge about the human body and an enthusiasm to share it that make classes thought-provoking, engaging and fun. I looked forward to discovering the ‘theme of the week’ along with some pearls of information on the development and workings of the body and an invitation to move one’s own body with these new thoughts as focus. The classes moved at a gentle pace allowing time to absorb information and ask questions which Andromeda always addressed, even those that veered off topic. Logging into classes was straightforward and interaction with both Andromeda and other participants worked well. Living at the other end of the U.K., I’m pleased that she offered an online option. Janie Thorburn
