There are many people who teach Pilates but few with the knowledge of Francesca. Her background in dance and and the level of her expertise means that I feel completely confident in her abilities. I treat her classes as a form of preventative health and a complete tonic for the mind and soul! Julie (student for six years)

I started to see Fran after a difficult birth, I was in agony and spending a fortune on chiropractors for years. After a a short time I was pain free and I am still enjoying Frans lessons 5 years on! Her energy and enthusiasm are addictive and make the lessons so much fun. You can’t fail to enjoy her lessons and the benefits are huge. Sal

As a new mum, I have found Fran's classes to be invaluable; she tailors each class to suit everyones' needs and abilities. This is the only exercise class where I have felt confident that the teacher is keeping a watchful eye over me to ensure that I don't do anything that could be detrimental to my 'post-baby' body. I have regained stability and strength thanks to these classes. Fiona (student for 2 years)
