“Overthe past few months I have noticed a huge difference in my core strength and posture and couldn’t recommend Margot more highly as an instructor.
“From breathing techniques, muscle toning to overall flexibility and relaxation, my Pilates sessions have become something of a weekly necessity that keeps me fit, happy and energised.”
