classes

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

classes & reformer sessions

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

classes & one on one sessions

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

classes & one on one sessions

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

reformer sessions

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 sessions

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

classes & workshops

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. In the very informative and helpful workshops, her knowledge of the human anatomy and its structures is amazing and inspiring - I always come away from sessions wanting to look up things up to learn more. Her style of delivery is outstanding, very inclusive and detailed. Bernadette Hennigan

reformer sessions

I have been working with Andromeda for 1 year and the experience has been life changing. 

I am an active 59 year old who enjoys playing tennis, cycling, swimming and golf.  My objective is to keep my body moving and achieving everything it can for as long as possible.  I also have the added complication of having rheumatoid arthritis which I inherited from my grandmother.  Andromeda has help me understand my body, my strengths and weaknesses, and areas that I need to work on. Every week we have a bespoke session, clearly explaining what we are going to do and why, demonstrating the exercise then watching and correcting as I perform the task against a range of resistances from the reformer ‘machine’ based on my ability to perform the task and push my boundaries. Every week I leave with ‘homework’ that I can fit in to my daily routine to maximise the benefits of my weekly sessions. Andromeda has helped me improve my posture and build my core strength. I feel very privileged to have Andromeda in my life. In terms of return on investment, financial and time, it is the most productive activity I do each week to maximise my longevity of health and welfare.

I have recommended many friends to Andromeda and all have had a similar life changing experience. Gaye Illsley

classes, one on one & reformer sessions

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

classes & one on one sessions

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

one on one sessions

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.

classes

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
