We want our customers to be able to recommend us unequivocally.

“We rarely miss our weekly Pilates class, which is great tribute to the quality of the teaching and the ambience. The class is always friendly, challenging yet supportive, and excellently focused on our individual needs within the group. All instructors have been engaging and understanding, and their variation in approach is a plus, helping to develop our technique. The physio background is a big plus, as all the tutors understand any physical limitations and can explain how to incorporate these into the Pilates moves.”

Robin & Peggy

“Nicky has helped to turn around my health completely and holistically. She takes a sensible and sensitive approach to what is manageable in terms of
changes to diet and lifestyle, and is incredibly effective in helping to bring
about change, backed by huge knowledge and expertise.”

Mrs R

“We have always found TOPS friendly and very effective. Hilary and I have used several physios – most often over the years, Catherine and Gemma; both of whom are excellent. Partly encouraged by them, we started Pilates and after a year or two have moved over to clinical yoga sessions.”

David & Hilary

“I have been using TOPS now for some 20 years, mainly for weekly Pilates classes, but also for occasional physiotherapy consultations. The range of classes are impressive in covering the full range of abilities, and the teachers are always both encouraging and sympathetic to ones’ limitations. Similarly, all the physios who I have consulted over the years have been excellent at both providing appropriate treatment, and instilling a sense of optimism that ones’ problems can be resolved.”


“I have used TOPS for physiotherapy for more than ten years, and always found the treatment given to be very helpful and successful.  More recently I have become a regular attender for yoga sessions, which have had a dramatic effect on my posture and my general well being.  This is a great resource, a very professional and friendly place whose services have the potential to benefit just about everyone.”


“I can’t thank TOPS enough for all the skilled and professional help I have had so far, and also for the confident hope they offer for an active future – despite ongoing sedentary occupations!”


“Thank you so much for all your help during my pregnancy. I really don’t think I would have stayed mobile without your amazing help.”


“The TOPS instructors are without exception professional and sympathetic, ensuring that classes are enjoyable as well as beneficial. Classes are structured to fit different levels of fitness and we have no hesitation in recommending TOPS to anybody interested in regular Pilates exercise.”

Neil & Felicity

“Fabulous company! It is really important to me that the company is dedicated to suit every client on an individual basis. It is quite miraculous the positive effect yoga has had on my body and therefore in my everyday life. A good yoga or pilates teacher really needs to understand their client’s individual anatomy needs and that is what makes TOPS so unique.”


“TOPS has a synergistic offering of physiotherapy treatment and extension to exercise classes in studio space, that is unique.  The fantastic Dominic and Gabi provided such great care and observation in my physiotherapy to sort out a very stubborn bursitis, and the wonderful care has continued in clinical yoga classes with Catherine, who teaches varying abilities and ages with such personalised guidance.  TOPS is really warm and friendly environment where I have gone on from injury treatment to build a physical strength and sense of well being I had thought was beyond me.  I am a strong, happy, and thankful client!”

“I was referred to Anne after suffering a hand injury due to an accident.  Anne’s detailed assessment of my difficulties led to a clear treatment plan of exercises, which were regularly reviewed, maximising my physical recovery. Anne’s empathetic manner and understanding of the emotional impact of my accident was also key to moving forward. Thank you Anne you have helped me so much!”

“Warm thanks to Jenny, who helped me with physio for my knee from July in the months before what turned out to be the need for a partial knee replacement.  The operation and convalescence went brilliantly well, and I am sure that Jenny’s wise advice on physio before the operation was a major reason for my rapid recovery.  One very satisfied customer.”
