My first experience with Pilates was at a couple of well-known gyms, the classes were large, the instructors not consistent and they pretty much stayed at the front of the class. When I moved to the Coast, I wanted to continue Pilates, however I didn’t want to go to a gym; with a stroke of luck I found Pilates and the wonderful Hannah Chandler.
What makes Hannah’s classes work, firstly the class size she keeps them smaller this enables her to spend more time with each member. She also tailors exercise to your fitness level (with some challenges), she makes sure you are doing the exercise correctly it’s hands-on with Hannah. Hannah knows the names of all of her students, her engaging personality, relaxed attitude and innovative techniques make it a fun and worthwhile experience.
The above are some of the reasons why after 7 years I’m still attending Hannah’s classes twice a week, I highly recommend Pilates by this lovely lady.
Before starting Pilates with Hannah I had tried other instructors but have been with Hannah for 4 years. Hannah’s classes are always enjoyable and every class is different. I truly benefit from the Pilates exercises and my body lets me know if I miss a week! Hannah has a thorough knowledge & understanding of how the body and muscles work and is able to use this in her classes for the benefit of her clients. I love how Hannah explains what to do using analogies (often funny) so we all get what she means, how she personally checks to ensure you are doing each exercise correctly and her ability to modify exercises to accommodate all individuals. Her knowledge, caring nature and bright personality make her classes a joy to be in. Thank you Hannah.
