Michele Lahey

Working-out at the Spinalis Studio with Chris is a tremendous relief after giving my all to the executive day job. She drives me hard and I love all that detailed discovery and physical challenge. Chris has great teaching skills, and all this mixed with fun and laughter.

Dave Shand

When I started with Chris at the Spinalis Pilates Studio I had an aching back, after only a couple of months of training it has completely gone. I can now also apply the Pilates principles to my Gym, Swim and Biking fitness regimes; this knowledge gives me greater strength and control. With my changing body shape I feel very pleased.

Ilana Acchoti Davies

I have made more progress in my fitness from just a few sessions of equipment Pilates with Chris than I did in a year of regular group mat classes at my local gym!

Martin Wakefield

4: With a bulging disc and extreme sciatic pain down my left leg, Christine proceeded to work me through corrective exercises. Gradually the pain in my left leg went away and likewise with the bulging disc, surgery was no longer needed. I am very grateful and 4 years on I am continuing with my Pilates sessions.

Anthony Cowen

At 71 I had developed a very stiff back, after working with Chris it is now so much more flexible. My weekly work out with her has made me feel years younger, fitter and invigorated.

Catherine Coyne

I first came to Spinalis after years of back pain..... and pregnant! Two babies later, I find Pilates essential. It is empowering, as I can now manage my back which has been under constant duress with my 3 young children. Pilates with Chris is centering, as my one, uninterrupted time of focus and quiet away from my three children: and finally it is motivating, as (for someone who has always struggled with her weight and body image) I have watched my shape change and my muscles develop in ways which really please me.

Chris has not only helped me get stronger but she has also taught me how to personally remedy sporting strains and injuries.

Lesley Collins

Before I started with Chris I had dubious posture, a sore shoulder and not much core strength to speak of, that’s all fixed now and I feel FANTASTIC..and look younger to...

Bruce Duckett

Desperate to get relief from back pain and Sciatica Chris was recommended to me, she obviously targeted what seemed to be the right areas with corrective stretching and strengthening exercises and readjusting my posture and thank goodness, relief is what I got. Having comfort again (in walking, standing and sleeping) is bliss. Next on the list are my neck and shoulders..!

Cheryl Gilkes

I believe that having regular sessions with Chris throughout my treatment for Cancer made a significant difference to my recovery from Chemotherapy, my energy levels and my state of mind. Pilates was one of the few things I could do that didn't make me feel drained and Chris's patience, fun attitude and support were just what I needed. I've now started on Gyrotonic® with Chris, which is even more fun.
