"Since April 2017 I have attended Nicky's Pilates class.  Nicky has helped me to understand the importance of breathing correctly, which I found difficult to begin with.  Also, because she is a qualified physiotherapist she can be extremely helpful in guiding each member of her class in achieving the most from their Pilates exercises.  Overall, I find her class to be a friendly, enjoyable and relaxing experience and I always leave with a smile on my face." - Joyce B., New Mills, August 2018

"Nicky Jackson is an excellent Pilates’ instructor who is extremely professional in her approach and instruction. I have been attending her classes for some time and find that, because her classes are small, she is able to give each individual appropriate support and assistance when needed. I was recommended by my Chiropractor to try Pilates and have noticed a significant difference in my core strength and posture since starting. Nicky is focussed, but has a lovely sense of humour which reflects on her classes and the relaxed way in which we all interact with one another." - Clare M., Romiley, July 2018

"Nicky Jackson’s Elan Pilates classes have made an amazing difference to my general mobility and in particular to my knees which were causing me great problems. Her classes are carefully structured building up strength and she also explains the purpose of each exercise.
Nicky is also careful to ascertain each week if any members have any problems so that her routine will benefit or not aggravate a condition. A huge bonus is that the classes are fun." - Angela W., Romiley, July 2018

"Nicky’s classes are always a pleasure.  The atmosphere is relaxed but professional and the content always interesting.  Nicky quickly understands if you are having any problems with the movements, and her knowledge enables her to provide alternatives and to explain what is happening.  I recommend her Pilates classes strongly." - Gillian S., Romiley, July 2018

"I have taken 6 of Nicky's classes so far and have already noticed more flexibility and strength returning.  The classes are small and the guidance is excellent" - Patricia D., New Mills, November 2017

"This is a friendly class and the instruction is excellent.  Pilates was recommended to me by a physiotherapist who was treating my lower back problems.  After attending for 9 months, I find my back is much better" - Sue C., Romiley, March 2017

"The instructor (Nicola) is excellent and very helpful.  The group size is quite small so that she is able to give us individual guidance and adapts the exercises depending on our needs" - Liz H., New Mills, April 2017

"The smaller class sizes mean you get personal attention.  The exercises and postures are very well explained and adjusted to suit individual circumstances.  Great communication and support outside the class.  Highly recommended :)" - Helen C., Romiley, March 2017
