I would recommend Shivani to anyone, especially if they have back issues. I’ve made great progress and can see the improvement in my body.
If you want a good foundation for pilates, highly recommend “Pilates By Shivani”. Shivani explained each movement, its impact. and importance. Shivani took time to understand my goals and helped focus the pilates session.
I am so glad I found Shivani! I have had multiple prolapse operations and needed to find an alternative. We have been working on core and spine stability/strengthening as well as pelvic floor. I have had one to one sessions for 8 weeks now and have noticed a massive improvement. I am also hypermobile and suffer from neck pain due to constant laptop use and driving. Shivani tailors my sessions and focuses on both issues. I look forward to it every week, do my exercises daily and have joined a group class. So worth it. Thank you x
Shivani is the best Pilates teacher I’ve had in the 8 years I’ve been doing it. She has a detailed understanding of it & is forever improving her knowledge (& ours) with new techniques / articles / courses.
I have been having 1-1 mat/reformer lessons with Shivani for nearly 2 months now. In that very short time I have noticed a large improvement in my posture, flexibility and strength. Shivani is a wonderful tutor, warm, knowledgeable and very patient. She explains the purpose of moves and is always happy to show an alternative move if necessary. Plus she is happy to show me moves/stretches I can do at home. Most importantly Shivani is a thoroughly lovely person who I look forward to working with each week. I would totally recommend her Pilates lessons.
Shivani is a lovely person and really provides in depth knowledge on how to improve overall health and fitness. I have enjoyed my sessions with her and specially how she ensures there is a challenge in our sessions. I can feel improvements in my body post our sessions. This is the first time I have tried Pilates and she definitely has made sure that I end up loving it, especially the reformer sessions.
I was recommended to see Shivani through a neighbourhood chat by many other people who were praising her. I went to see Shivani and it has made such a big difference to my core strength. She is very professional and is great as a one to one teacher or even as a group. She listens to your needs and helps you to focus on what is helpful to you. I myself would definitely recommend Shivani for strengthening your core and pelvis. You’re doing an amazing job Shivani!
Highly recommend Shivani, she’s an extremely knowledgable pilates teacher and her classes take place in a beautiful setting. I’ve only had three sessions so far but have learnt so much and am looking forward to continue and build my strength up!
I am thoroughly enjoying my 1:1 sessions with Shivani who is warm and personable. Sessions are fun yet challenging and dynamic. Shivani has exceptional knowledge of the body and mechanics, especially when it comes to women’s health, injury or any other ailments. This knowledge allows her to vary the sessions depending on the goal or challenge.
I have been going to 1:1 sessions for just over 5 weeks. My aim was to tone, increase strength and generally improve fitness. Shivani really listens first to your needs and starts by applying just the correct level of intensity that doesn’t send you running for the hills. Each exercise is explained and carefully directed now as each class continues you can see the improvement and how you can build on each exercise. I am still a novice but enjoying the journey
I am really enjoying my 1:1 sessions with Shivani she is a great teacher. I have lots of health issues and wanted to build my strength back up. Shivani has really helped me with this. Each session is different every time so you don’t get complacent. I highly recommend Shivani
Shivani’s 1:1 classes are brilliant because they are tailored to my needs and ability. Shivani has a detailed understanding of Pilates which has meant she has been able to explain the exercises and breathing techniques clearly and as a result I have been able to learn quickly. Shivani is flexible when it comes to booking 1:1 classes which has been great as this has meant I have been able to schedule classes around my work and personal diary. I highly recommend Shivani as a Pilates teacher!
Following an injury, it was recommended that I do Pilates as part of my recovery plan. I had several one to one online classes with Shivani. I was super impressed as how Shivani was able to observe and correct via zoom. I have more awareness of my posture and everything was well explained. Every class was different and yet targeted. I have now joined the weekly group classes and am enjoying them. I have also had good feedback from my Osteopath on my injury. I would highly recommend Shivani.
Excellent classes by Shivani. I highly recommend them. She changes the exercises each week and gives a range of options and adapts exercises for this who need. I have a knee problem and her Pilates classes have improved my mobility hugely!
She builds up to the challenging work by warming up the correct areas of your body first – I end up doing things I didn’t think possible with my weak back.
Her classes are also an education ! She explains which area of the body each exercise is working on and what muscles are being used and how. Love it !
I was suffering from chronic back and hip pain before I joined Shivani’s pilates classes. She helped me to strengthen my core and for the first time in months I was pain free. She is professional and every class has a new challenge . Her exercise plans are suited to everyone ‘s needs and the best part I like about her is her enthusiasm and her lively remarks which keeps me going. I look forward to her classes as they are full of energy and new challenges.
I always leave the class feeling refreshed and relaxed even though I had a good workout. It’s my favourite way to exercise.
I would highly recommend Pilates with Shivani as her instructions are clear and easy to understand.
Contrary to what most believe Pilates is definetly NOT just for girls!
It’s great and I feel happy making the right decision and look forward to my lessons every week.
1. Very involved sessions
2. Even though it was group sessions I did, there was personal attention for every posture and every move.
3. She pushes up the regime or down based on what your body is ready for
4. Most importantly she explains what every exercise does and where it affects.
5. She knows her stuff 🙂
The Pilates classes for sure have greatly helped with reducing my back pains, toning up my body & body flexibility. I would certainly recommend coming to Shevani’s classes. See you at one of the classes !
Shivani has a way of delivering a class that is an extremely good workout as well as fun! She is extra caring about her clients – always asking if we have any problems and if so adapting the exercise to help.I very much look forward to each class!!!!!
The classes are small and Shivani approaches them with kindness and humour.
Good sessions with interesting information, well planned and varied, individual attention. Also friendly and enjoyable.
Shivani is an amazing Pilates teacher. She Takes her time with us all individually, keeps in touch when we are not in classes and is always giving information to us to help with our mental health as well as our physical health. Definitely recommended 🙂
Even in the COVID-19 challenging times, she has been taking regular classes. It’s a really good workout and I feel very relaxed after the classes.
Shivani also makes an effort to engage from a social perspective by organising drinks, dinner etc. to bring everyone together. I would highly recommend Pilates by Shivani, whether you’re a beginner, like me, or an expert!
I was having problems with shoulder mobility, plantar fasciitis” and sciatica. So decided to try Shivani’s Pilates and the best decision I’ve made. “She is very passionate, puts you” through your pace at the same time mindful of the injuries you have and tailors the exercise to suit the individual’s ability and builds upon it. I normally find exercise classes a chore but Shivani’s classes are not a chore they are ADDICTIVE! And it’s helped me with the aches and pains and certainly improved my posture.
Shivani systematically works through the whole body, finding muscles rarely exercised. The best Pilates teacher of the five I have used.
