Learn 10 techniques to feel better about your mind and body in 10 weeks that you can practice for the rest of your life!

Enjoy Gentle Pilates Exercise with Jan on Your Beginners Course in Brighton starting January 2014 ...

If you are over 50 and you haven't exercised for a few months or years and you have a nagging pain in your back, neck or shoulders, my gentle Pilates classes are definitely for you.

Hello fellow back pain sufferer,

I’m Jan Davies, and 15 years ago I had a chronic back problem which meant I was unable to move easily without constant pain.

I had to leave my highly profile corporate career including working at HM Treasury.

Fortunately, after almost 9 months of different therapies, my physiotherapist finally referred me to Body Control Pilates, and after 10 weeks of classes my back and indeed my whole mind and body felt so much better.

I knew immediately that I had to dedicate my life to teaching Body Control Pilates to other people and I did 2 years of intensive training with the “best of the best” including the “Queen of Pilates” Lynne Robinson herself, before I began teaching my own classes in 2001.

Even though I still need to manage my back pain, I know I am in control of the way my spine feels and my pain no longer controls me, thanks to Pilates.

I continue to invest every year in learning new techniques and approaches to make your Pilates experience even more fulfilling.

Hundreds of people have now been to my beginner classes in Brighton, since 2001, and many say “Pilates helped my back”.

So I know that Pilates can help you!

But don’t take my word for it …

Here’s what my students and colleagues say …

“I attended Jan’s classes for about six years to improve and maintain core strength following an accident years earlier. Jan’s knowledge of Pilates and the body was extremely comprehensive and put me at ease straight away. Jan’s ability to explain very subtle movements and adapt exercises for different levels of ability were excellent and I always felt very well looked after in her classes. If I were still able to attend her classes I would be there every week!”
Andy Mckay, Qualified Solicitor
“I’ve taken classes with Jan on numerous occasions and always been impressed with her skill, ability to explain what needs to be done and true professionalism. I’ve recommended numerous people to her, and I think her knowledge of Pilates is second to none.”
Jo Blood, Posture People
“Jan was very patient with me as I was a novice at Pilates.She is very knowledgeable about the body and provides a valuable and professional service. I have recommended family, friends and clients of mine to Jan and will continue to do so.”
Andrew Spence, Hypnotherapist & Life Coach at The Spence Practice
“Jan’s skill and dedication to her classes brings out the best in those that attend and clearly encourage them to achieve their full potential.”
Malcolm Harvey, Membership Secretary Federation of Small Businesses
“Jan has a real passion and dedication for helping people,and I was most grateful to her for the advice she gave me for my wife and I who both suffer from asthma and back problems.She has lived such an interesting life,and has so much experience to draw on,I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.”
Chris Aplin, Management Consultant, Retail , Manufacturing,Mentoring, Business Strategy, Operational Transformation

I believe in teaching Pilates in small groups in a ten sessions over 10 weeks Beginner Course, because as Joseph Pilates himself said “In ten sessions you will feel the difference”.

I teach in my own style which is fun and down to earth, I make sure that there is no pressure and I listen to and accomodate the needs of every individual in the class.

That’s why my Beginner Classes have a maximum of 12 people, of all ages and fitness, to ensure plenty of teaching supervision and individual attention/guidance over 10 weeks.

Your personal commitment to 10 hours over 10 weekes will enable you to feel the difference, that’s why this is a structured 10 week programme, so you will get what you are paying for!

I also know that as your life is busy it’s possible that you will miss a class, so I offer you the opportunity to catch up on one of my other classes.

Here’s why you will benefit from your 10 week Pilates beginners course …

Your health is your most precious gift and the foundation work that you do now will enable you to enjoy greater mobility and live a longer and more active life in your golden years.
