Back Injuries and Back Pain

My name is Maureen Boddy. I have had a number of accidents each affecting my spine; from falling off a horse, falling down stairs carrying waste water, and more recently, my  heel caught in a crack on concrete steps, I ended up using crutches till my ankle healed, and the back pain was excruciating.

Eighteen years ago I was was already told by a neuro surgeon that if he did not operate immediately, I would be in a wheelchair in six months. I would also have to wear a brace for nine months, and that would have been the end of my Pilates career.  Each time I refused surgery and I am now pain free and active. I chose to go the natural way.

Pilates is a great form of exercise, I have taught it for over twenty years, however it is over hundred years since Joseph Pilates first taught in New York, and science has moved on.

I have studied  the latest information available to date regarding back injuries. With the knowledge I have accrued, I now incorporate this knowledge and  exercises in my   Pilates classes.

My passion is to help others who are suffering with back pain, disc bulges, or sciatica, also those who have gone the surgical route, but still have to take pain killers,  often  with horrid side effects. Or anyone who wants to strengthen their backs to prevent injury.

I  teach my clients about activities in their daily schedule that are causing them pain, also healthy movement patterns that will promote pain-free living. Strategies and exercises that will help them achieve and maintain a healthy, strong spine.   No-one knows better that I do how debilitating constant back pain can be.

With the Isometric Movement and Dynamic  tension you will safely strengthen and tone muscles, tighten flabby arms, and  tummies, all  without the need for heavy weights,

Our  studio is very spacious and safe parking is provided on the premises.
