I have found the routines and quality of what you offer excellent. The range of exercises really stretch me and add to my wellness. Your verbal cues are accurate and intelligently interspersed. Your diction is excellent. Your personality shines through and your own demonstrations of processes excellent. Over the 8 years I have done pilates / yoga I have had some 16 presenters and I rank you as number 1.
Your classes are awesome and for any fitness level… amazing.. full workouts explaining all the right moves. Love how you cover everything and you explain in detail how to correctly do the movement. Loving your live class format – even roped my son in:-) You make it look so easy & you explain everything so well. My son has even told his girlfriend in Venezuela about your classes. Look forward to seeing you on the mat every morning. Wow, all at an amazingly ridiculous fee !!
Thank you so much for your classes – I often feel the work in places I haven’t felt in a long time. Thank you for all your variety and constant hight standard. You keep my head focussed and my low’s to a minimum during this depressing time of lockdown. I appreciate the hard work you put in and the absolute value for money that you deliver for such a miniscule fee – this action alone shows your social responsibility during tough times.
Your classes have morphed into something unreal. I am enjoying it tremendously. Cannot do it real time. So most often do morning or evenings. Missing only the odd one.
I have told everyone I know, you are a brilliant instructor and guide students through all the movements. The fusion of pilates and yoga makes it accessible to a large amount of individuals. Great walk-through on all movements, different focuses every time, different intensities. Keep it up, I am having so much fun.
I’m just loving the live stream because I can do it in my home, when I want. Louise’s way of talking through all movements and body positions ensures that I’m aware of my body positions and what they should be so that I can be sure I’m doing it correctly. With such thorough and clear instructions, I almost feel like I don’t need to be in a physical class! Thank you Louise for all your effort in these videos – they are making lockdown workouts fun and I can DEFINATELY feel the change in my body after each one. My body feels so much stronger and longer, I’ve noticed a big difference in my posture and how I hold myself up, and my back is feeling better than it’s felt on years! Thank you so much for the dedication to the videos and the effort and planning that you do! I’m so grateful.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a morning person especially in the cold. Louise offers a class where she accommodates all our needs. I was told I would never do yoga necause of rather over the top back surgery, knee issues & constant neurological problems I know I will never be a master. ..but I love this discipline & my body is coping with way more than it should thanks in huge part to Louise. ..
Enjoying your classes immensely, great to be able to pause until I can move to the next exercise. Love the way you explain everything and I know what and where I’m supposed to be focused and feeling the effects. Grateful for your efforts and hard work to get this out there. User friendly, very beneficial. Informative, thorough, mixed level.
I really do enjoy your classes. I love that I can go at my own pace and I am now enjoying being able to do it from home. Some of the routines are a bit hectic for me (given my injuries), but I “play where I’m comfortable” and make it through. Being able to do it multiple times a week I am starting to notice a difference in my muscle strength and endurance. Some movements do seem like it’s getting easier. I absolutely enjoy the way the classes are set up. I like that there is a focus on exercise and not the religious practices that is often associated with yoga, for example, the mantras and bhajan music. It helps to physically benefit from the practice without compromising on religious belief systems. I like that I can go at my own pace and I am not forced to do a full movement if I am not able to. I appreciate the way you explain the movements so there is clarity on how to achieve a specific pose and that for the most part you offer alternative movements. For the same reasons I would recommend your classes to others.
I love YwL – her online classes are very convenient for me to do from home and I can do these any time of the day. Very easy to adapt to her approach because she explains it very well. I really like her classes. These classes give me a very good start to my day. Thank You!
The variation in content and cool themes keep the early mornings interesting.😉 The instructions clarify the reason behind the moves and provides insight to those of us who havent studied Pilates etc in depth …could not stay away if i tried😁 Thank you for an excellent fee with bumper value..one of the real hilightes of the new season we find ourselves in..tx so much for caring about every individual you come across..you are an example and truly inspiring in your positive attitude..
Louise, currently I’m waking up and I love you because I can say “f// Louise, ek is in my tjops” and throughout the day this works as well, while I limp to my desk or bed because I am unfit and only started attending the classes this week 😂 I guess it would not be appropriate to voice the appreciation that I can take out my frustration on someone else than my husband….
My husband did a class with me – I laughed so much, because the first time I said, “don’t take a towel, you don’t need one”. Well he sweated “bullets” and he is fit, because he’s a runner. Your classes are just unique – Thank you!
I believe that it’s important to have professional guidance to avoid injury and bad form. YwL gives me an opportunity to continue exercising during lockdown, with guidance from an expert, as opposed to just trying to do my own thing. I can rewind and start the class at a time that suits me, if I miss the live stream.
I had been sharing your previous links long before lockdown. For friends needing advice. And colleagues i would like to expose to your way of teaching and prompting. I love the way you instruct and your prompts. I am used to not always seeing you and just following the verbal cues. Beginners will catch on quickly. I also like the combinations you do and the general content of your classes. I have noticed a huge improvement in my strength and balance and posture since joining your classes, and others have commented on it too. Love your content – everything! Excellent balance of strength and core and full body work or focused areas. Great stretches and Verbal cues. Excellent relaxation sections. Thank you xxx
My partner and I have done a number of yoga classes that we found on YouTube (he is more advanced than I am) and it worked, but it wasn’t well scheduled (they were either too difficult or too easy). So not easy to plan the training very well. Your classes, both the Yoga and the Pilates, work for both of us. What I enjoy about the live stream is that it feels as if you are still part of a larger group, training together. You cater for both advanced and beginners. I like how you build up to the difficult moves (play or stay). I managed to do the headstand today for the first time 😀 !!! I can see and feel how I progress.
You always give options and explanations where some other instructors give minimum and i have to google to understand value of some movements. Love the pace and clear instructions..i always understand you.
You talk us through each movement and you build up to the full flowing movement – love that! I could never just move into a lying down position from being seated – until you said – “look at your belly button” while slowly moving back – and it works ! Everything you do say helps in each movement
I have already recommended to others so that they can benefit the way I have. Professional detailed instruction. Working mindfully with your own body, at your own pace. Love your personality and communication – you make it enjoyable and fun!
Louise, thank you helping me to realise the vital importance of staying in shape. YOU ARE AMAZING, LOTS of APPRECIATION!
Love your style. Love the variety, and it is a workout, not just a chit chat.
I enjoy the class and you put a lot of effort in. Love the variation and the fact I can do it when I want to.
You get on with it and don’t talk to much in between poses like in some other online classes where they try to perfect too much or cater for beginners by explaining every small detail.
Your classes are brilliant, great variety.
You’re reviews are brilliant! Classes are very well delivered and easy to follow.
They are great classes & really work all parts of your body, very nicely demonstrated if you are still a beginner or advanced. Love everything, especially the core work & flexibility.
The classes are fun and challenging and the way you explain the importance of each movement is very informative and helps with body awareness. Love the things I learn about my body during class. And seeing improvement. I like how you break things down and layer movements. And I get a great workout.
Convenient way to exercise and avoid traffic jams, which is a huge problem for me. Love the fact that you give various options for varying degrees of fitness.
I have met you personally and know you have my best interest at heart and you have a wonderful way to explain the movements:) I feel confident and relaxed and trust you as an instructor.
Louise is an excellent role-model. She is warm and welcoming, has a high energy level and keeps the pace and interest level high for the entire time. Love the fact that her classses are not boring.
It feels “real”, its personal, and is almost as good as attending the actual sessions at gym. Its fun, its professional, I can exercise at my own level….and you are a very good instructor!
You elaborate each step well, as well as providing alternatives for those that are not there yet. I also the enjoy humour:) Feels personal, and like I said previously I enjoy the alternative options.
Professional and a proper workout. Love the variety and the class being presented in a structered friendly way.
Enjoy these classes so much. Has made a huge difference in my life, not only physically, but also emotionally and mentally. Always fun. A workout that actually shows results while allowing you to have a great time on the mat.
Great if anyone prefers to workout at home and use the live stream method. Classes are well oiled and specific in walking us through our “paces” and postures and well executed.
The classes are wonderful, much appreciated and keeps me sane! Body and mind. I feel less alone and my body benefits greatly. Classes target whole body, keeping me strong and supple. I feel as if I am actually “in” your class.
Love the Yoga/Pilates mix. How you explain each movement thoroughly, what to do in detail, how to move, how to be careful and what you will do next – Love it. The examples you use are so appropriate, like look back as if someone is standing behind or a rugby ball or tennis ball.
Love the education while doing the movements. I like the fact that you educate the viewer while doing the movement, so that we understand the movement better. So far you are the only instructor that helps me to understand the movement.
I like the way you engage with us and constantly remind us on how to inhale & exhale through the various poses/exercises. Love your focus on the breath.
You are brilliant and an excellent instructor. Clear instructions, allowing for different levels, focusing on the entire body, diversity & range of exercises is great.
You can do the class when it suits you. Love the way you guide us into the different movements
YwL helps you improve your all over well being. Love that you never have to miss out on a class to improve your fitness and flexibility. I like your energy and all the effort you are putting in to help us all.
The workouts are great and there is enough variety. It caters for beginners and advanced people and there is a good variety of exercises.
Louises classes are exceptional! I am used to her style and it suits my training programme.
I think your approach is the best – educating me all the way (in terms of terminology as well as reminding of basics like belly button, inner thighs engaged, etc.)
Your explanations of of how to do the exercises is fantastic. I can feel the workout of the specific muscles the next day.
Love your yoga and Pilates – You make it different:-)
Great for other training and also recovery and better movement. Love the variety in movements and the presentation.
Enjoyable, clear instructions and for all levels. Clear instructions, not to high level, great stomach workouts!
I enjoy the classes and I would recommend them. Love the easy to follow instructions, and that you allow time for me to get into the position and let me know where I should be feeling the pull/burn.
I like that you show the beginner to advanced levels. I like that they are challenging and different each time.
It is easy to follow you and the classes are interesting.
Love your clear instructions and the options you give.
Excellent classes if exercise from home suits. Love the explanations and focus on form & breathing.
The exercises are explained very well. Love the detail in explanation and leading through the program.
It can be enjoyed by people of ages. Very professional presentations.
You do an amazing class. Great variety, I can feel my muscles the next day.. works well!
Great for people that can’t go to gym. Love that I can see and hear you better on TV (than in a physical class).
Challenging yet enjoyable and adaptable. Love the flow of progressions through the exercises.
Love that you prompt on time and all your cues!
I enjoy your classes and I think it is a wonderful workout.
Love the continuos guidance along with the possess.
I have sent your link to many of my colleagues as your classes are great! Love the mixture of beginner and experienced.
I have recommended people. Your classes are excellent – well balanced and cater for all levels. Love the variety of targeting different areas and always catering for different student levels.
You motivate others. Love the clear instructions!
Easy to follow, can go at my own pace, not intimated to keep up!
Brilliant instructor cues, so accurate. Your classes have different levels of intensity. You are very clear on instructions – I can follow without looking at the screen. Very inspirational!
The classes are great for both physical and mental wellbeing. The presentation of your classes and the thorough explanation of each movement is great.
Love your classes. Classes never feel repeated. Always feels like it’s something different. Love the challenge of trying new levels.
Great for those who the gym/studio class times don’t work. Love the really good verbal cues.
No pressure, all at my own time/pace – and you remind us of that often:-)
Allow me to take the opportunity to actually thank you before getting “into” my testimonial. This is my first introduction to yoga, something I have been wanting to do for a long time, and I couldn’t have been luckier to find you. I have been enjoying your classes immensely and it would be no embellishment to say that it is my favourite activity in a packed week of physical activities. Ok so onto a more “professional” testimonial …
I have been wanting to pick up yoga for a long time, but never really had the opportunity. My first introduction through Louise has been no disappointment. In fact, yoga is the highlight of my week, so much so that when Louise is able to work in extra classes I make sure that I attend. I have found the classes to be a physical challenge that really excites me, without ever feeling inadequate when I cannot get a specific pose down. I attribute this directly to Louise’s approach to teaching. Lastly, I would be remiss not to make specific mention of her incredible relaxation sessions at the end of class. It is hard to imagine leaving a class after such mindful meditation without being completely at peace.
I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first about attending your class. However I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks for making my reintroduction to yoga so pleasant – during my first class (not with you) I really felt intimidated as the instructor had no patience with the newbies. You are an awesome instructor!
The stretches were great and afterwards I felt aching muscles that I didn’t even know existed! Looking forward to getting better at it! I have made a personal commitment to myself to attend your sessions weekly
The yoga class was surprisingly a very nice experience, as it was only the first time I’ve done it! It was very nice, as I needed some of those stretches and so on. What was most interesting to me was the focus point, when we turned/moved around in a circle and setting a point to look at and focus on. BTW I am still doing that to try and keep focus as I am preparing for assessments, and I must say it HELPS…
PLEASE come and see the BMGA class again if possible, would love to have some yoga, and skills before the final exams…MWAH. If I must rate the yoga session out of 10, I rate it 10 out of 10!
Louise, the class was…
Thank you Louise for coming to the college. The training and experience was nice, but I was so stiff the next day – I’m so unfit and want to do that regularly so that I can get fit and be healthy. This training meant a lot and opened my eyes, and I realise that a person needs exercise to keep a healthy body and mind. I would love for you to come visit the college again.
Keep well !!! Thanks XXXX
