Why Choose Us?

About Us

At Equilibrium we offer a holistic approach to health and exercise, based on individual fitness level, posture, flexibility, and the existence of any musculoskeletal or joint complaints.
We offer private and duet sessions for those who desire an individualised programme as well as a range of classes with traditional matwork and reformer training as well as anti-gravity classes using aerial hammocks. All new class attendees are seen for a pre-class assessment prior to joining classes. Information from this assessment is given to your teacher to ensure that classes are planned and tailored according to your individual requirements.

Our team are specialists within their fields whom continually work on their professional development through regular training to keep up to date with best practice, latest research and increase their knowledge and skill base. We pride ourselves on being a multi-disciplinary practice with physios, sport rehabilitators, Pilates instructors and former international athletes we work together to get the best for our clients.

Concept of the Studio

The concept of Equilibrium “To have perfect balance” is difficult to attain but should always be one
‘s goal. I’ve worked with a whole host of bodies; military personnel, dancers, athletes, adolescent, elderly, office workers, antenatal and postnatal. The one thing everybody has in common is that they are all completely different.  We have our own preferred side of the body, our own strengths and weaknesses, we have anatomical differences we were born with and biomechanical differences we have learnt or adapted.

In the case of two individuals having the exact same injury they still require completely different treatment for a whole host of reasons such as; The way they gained their injury, how their weaknesses may have contributed, how their body recovers and responds to treatment, what their daily activities or sports or job needs are and the list goes on and on. The one thing that it always comes back to is ‘Balance’. Rehabilitation and conditioning of the body is like a juggling act of all the different aspects needed for optimum health and this how the concept ‘Equilibrium’ inspires our clinic.

Testimonials

''I've always had problems with lower back pain due to spending most of my career in an office slumped over a computer or out and about behind a steering wheel. With the addition of flat feet and getting older it was all conspiring against me.

Having thrown money at the problem, I’d tried lots of other options including physio and podiatry but nothing was helping. Pilates had been mentioned but I’d always thought of it as a bit girly and too gentle. I couldn't have been more wrong. I have private one to one sessions that I really enjoy, which certainly aren't girly and in a nice way more often than not you certainly feel it the next day.

Lindsey has been fantastic, she understood me and my challenges straight away and quickly got to the nub of my problems. Building up my core, strengthening my back and legs has really got me to a good place. So whilst there’s no magic cure my challenges are certainly manageable and I've been able to go running again and take long country walks.

There are lots of people out there who ‘do pilates’ – I think Lindsey is unique, having a warm personality, good sense of humour, lots of patience plus exceptional technical skills and knowledge – she’s very much on your side and only wants the best outcome for you. Highly recommended.”

“After practicing yoga for most of my life, I was a little reticent about starting Pilates. When I got a back injury I decided to give Pilates a go. Lindsey is so thorough it's like a physio session, excellent workout and one on one personal attention. It's changed the way I practice yoga, the way I train in the gym and my general posture. Aerial Pilates is so much fun, reformer is the hardest isolation exercise you can do and the mat work is the best I've tried. Well done Lindsey and the team.”

Lyndsey Hale

“When I started coming to Clinic Equilibrium I had issues with my hips and knees, to the point where I struggled to kneel down or walk long distances. Three months later I’m pain free and have even started running.
At first the Pilates machines looked pretty scary, but they are actually amazing and really enhance the sessions. The classes are great, they are small so the instructors really get to know your individual limitations. They push you but never beyond what you can do. It’s great being able to do a little more everytime, I was so excited the first time I touched my toes from straight legs! I couldn’t recommend enough.”

Sam H Timperley

“After a few months of Pilates at Clinic Equilibrium I am not not only noticing an improvement in the specific pain I had but also in day to day movement. I no longer feel stiff after a days gardening or after a long walk. The atmosphere in the small classes is relaxed and informal and Lindsey and her team always have time to answer individual queries. I can highly recommend Pilates and Clinic Equilibrium.”

Lucy S Lymm

“My back pain got steadily worse over 2 years until I could no longer train or run, soon even sitting or lying in bed hurt. I was told I was ‘just getting old’! Lindsey took me back to basics and gradually re-educated my movement. In just a few weeks the difference was amazing. I got stronger and more flexible so quickly – Lindsey has converted me to Pilates!”

Christine A

“I have been having one to one Pilates sessions with Lindsey for over 2 months and the progress I have made has had a very positive effect on my health and kick started my road to recovery. I enjoy my one to one sessions and I always feel relaxed and comfortable. Lindsey always gives me praise and positive feedback even when I think I am not doing well! Thank you for giving me the confidence to help myself and continue to improve my health with Pilates.”

Lindsay C

“I have previously been a bit sceptical of Pilates but Lindsey has really opened my eyes to the benefits. I really enjoyed every session and Lindsey made it varied and interesting. Lindsey also gave a lot of individual coaching and feedback which made a huge difference to my improvement. I definitely want to continue Pilates. Thank you.”

Anna S

"I have now had 10 Pilates sessions with Lindsey and I really look forward each week to the next one. Since starting Pilates I have seen and felt significant benefits to both my body shape and my general well-being.
Lindsey is an excellent instructor with an in-depth knowledge of Pilates and the body as a whole and is so enthusiastic about sharing this knowledge.  The sessions are always relaxed and calming, but at the same time stretching and invigorating.  I feel so refreshed at the end of each one. I have learned so much about the value of correct posture and breathing and am so much more aware of my own body and the need to work from the core.

I cannot recommend highly enough, both Pilates as a form of exercise and Lindsey as a trainer as I am achieving the results I am looking for."

Bev J

“Lindsey demonstrated the ability common to APPI practitioners of being able to describe in words the physical sensations when muscles were being used correctly - and if one simile didn't work she would provide another.  Where she excelled was in her patience with an unfit 56 year old and an uncanny knack of knowing exactly when I was struggling to feel the right Pilates sensation.  I now use muscles I didn't know I possessed!  Lindsey motivates in a way that you do not want to let het down, but equally accepts that regular practice isn't always possible and is sympathetic rather than critical.  Really sorry she's moved away, but SW London's loss is the north west's gain.”

Dianne B

“A really special trip, combining both Pilates and a taste of Morocco. Lindsey was helpful pre trip with any questions I had and both Lindsey and the group I went with were all very friendly. The Pilates classes were very professionally conducted, but fun and for my part as another APPI teacher, also useful for picking up some extra teaching ideas. Well done Lindsey, look forward to another if I can persuade the family that I’m still celebrating my 50th next year!!”

Moira D'Arcy

“Had a sports massage with Lindsey which thoroughly beat me up and did the job! She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in talking through some knee issues I've been having and will definitely being returning soon.”

Paul Jackson

"I first started sessions at Clinic Equilibrium, firstly with Lindsey, then Susanna, following a complicated pregnancy and subsequent Caesarian section. Months later, I was unfit and a pre existing back condition had flared up causing me great discomfort.

Lindsey & Susanna spent the time assessing my back, general strength and fitness and understanding my lifestyle.

A few months on, I am now stronger, fitter and living without pain. Susanna's combination of massage therapy, tailored pilates and personalised home exercise plan has made a significant, positive impact on my life.

I'm still working to get to where I want to be, but with Susanna's expertise , I believe I will get there!"
