good offer enjoyed the class meant to do 4 stars
Jill teaches with enthusiasm and precision - her classes are outstanding. She keeps our attention with variety and challenges. Absolutely love have her as a teacher. Efficiently gives help when needed. Timely class reminder emails sent.
Wonderful. Love it. Excellent work out. Yes. Wonderful
Excellent, reliable service which enables our Yoga group to keep practising Yoga during Lockdown and Government restrictions. This service works well and reliably it is easy to use Michele’s Yoga classes are excellent and this service has enabled our Yoga group to keep practising yoga throughout Lockdowns.
Great class. Emily is always helpful & very attentive. Very good. Clear & easy to use
Nice package class of 4 to purchase. Excellent for kids to get self confidence.
Problem resolved satisfactorily I couldn’t purchase a pass for the classes that I have been attending for some months and which should be still available with a monthly pass which provides a saving over 5 classes. . When I tried to renew my pass it said there were none available. Very frustrating so had to pay for single class at a higher price.
Great easy to book fab class Always a relaxing meaningful practice. Cheryl is lovely, so kind and patient and the venue is spacious and clean. It’s so easy to book through Near You and it’s flexible so you can book an individual class or a block if you prefer. During the lockdowns a zoom class is available too. Thank you Cheryl 😊
Clear and calm instruction in a friendly and supportive environment. Very easy to use - would recommend for trouble-free booking.
Lynn accommodates all my needs does what it says
Very good value and I feel great after my Class. Great exercise routine form Jill. The hour goes so quickly and I love having the different levels, provided by the instructor. The demonstrations and verbal instructions are always brilliant and easy to follow.
Excellent class - would highly recommend Service was easy to use and very efficient.
Easy, quick, user friendly and minimum details needed to book and no need for password. Friendly, inspirationable and knowledgeable. She keeps us going and it really works!
Jill’s classes are highly motivating, strengthening and varied. I’m far healthier as a result of attending her classes on a regular basis I do find the frequency of requests for reviews annoying. I’m a regular customer and my opinion is consistent!
This is a very affordable price for an excellent class Easy to use, to search classes, pay for and book them
Meets all my expectations. Sally is a great Pilates teacher. I’m a beginner and she has made me very welcome and I’ve quickly gained confidence in my abilities. Really enjoying the sessions
Really good purchase, as usual Great session. Really enjoyed it
Really enjoyed my first beginners class. Ross is very clear with her instruction and guidance. This class works really well via Zoom Looking forward to the next 3 classes. Useful website and easy to use.
Jill is a brilliant teacher who does all the exercises with the class and talks us through the breathing. There is always a wide variety of stretches too. Booking is easy and I like the reminder on the day.
Excellent class learnt a lot and also had fun!! Instructors were excellent Enjoyed the class
Great to book a block and save in booking fees. Easy to book classes and it’s great to have a reminder when the class is happening and when you need to rebook.
This is a brilliant Class, taught by a brilliant teacher. Everything is explained in detail and reasons given as to why and what muscles, joints are benefitting. Couldn't ask more of a teacher. There was a mix up with my booking, but Near You did all they could to resolve the situation. Sent me a further link, after checking that nothing had transpired from the first link. Unfortunately I did miss that Class due to lateness. Just one of those things. Near You could not have done more to help.
Very easy booking system. Easy to connect to Zoom classes too. Jill is an excellent teacher, very thorough & knowledgeable. Highly recommend this teacher. Jill Thornton is a very thorough & knowledgeable Pilates teacher. She is enthusiastic and explains everything very clearly. Highly recommend this teacher...and her method of teaching.
Online is a good alternative to face to face classes and still feels as though you are part of a community. Excellent - was to navigate and prompt - thank you.
what is not to love about this very generous offer.... I find the teachings to be very authentic and well delivered. This is a great service to be able to do the classes at my convenience, which works very well in my busy life. I will be continuing to use this service. Just what I need to enable me to rise above the stress levels of the modern world.
great class I have nothing else to say Very good service, brilliant class
Wonderful class, taught in a calm and professional manner by yoga teacher Claire. Claire brings the class alive with such a variety within the class content. Would never be bored with this Kundalini way of teaching. Definitely recommended for a complete renewal of the senses and wellbeing. Thank you Claire! Very enjoyable yoga experience given by Claire. Excellent teaching all round. Found the class to be so beneficial, interesting and effective. Would definitely recommend this class for an hour and a quarter of some Kundalini bliss taught in a professional yogic style.
easy to purchase Rosy's pilates classes :-) I would highly recommend Rosy as a Pilates instructor. I've only ever had another online instructor and i've found Rosy to be exceptional!
I have used the near me Ap to book Pilates classes with JillThornton. Jill is a very experienced Pilates teacher and I very much enjoy her classes as there is plenty of variety and trying new things, the classes are never boring and work well for people of all levels. I have been doing Jills classes for 3 or 4 years and it is great to be able to take the classes from home on Zoom. Jill is very good at explaining how things should feel so I don’t feel I am missing out on being at a life class. I have been to other local Pilates classes and Jill is definitely the best. The Near You AP is an excellent way of signing up to local Pilates classes, very easy to use and has proved to work very well in the past 10 weeks I have been using it.

I am looking forward to attending more classes. The work space felt clean and safe and the instructor was friendly, giving clear instructions for a varied programme of movements.
Good process throughout . Very efficient Thorough instructions
Jill’s classes are always varied. She is currently teaching Chinese exercises which give a wonderful “buzz”. Each class is very well constructed to give an excellent workout. The website has improved since the start though I still don’t feel at ease using it
Definitely worth the price. My 13 year old son has been attending classes. At kmma for a few weeks now. I can tell the difference in his confidence already Its a great place to learn krav maga self defence. Great friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend
Absolutely. After 12 days of not being able to attend we did some wonderful exercises so in the last 2 days. Special exercises yesterday. Jill mentioned that we would sleep soundly and Hey Presto absolutely true I was full of energy for today. Amazing Class I have not been able to access pilates for nearly 2 weeks and thanks to Steve he gave me advice on what the problem could be. He was correct and my family helped me put it in place. My first Pilates lesson with Jill after. 12 days of not being able to join was brilliant. Great class and as she forecast I slept so soundly.
I like that there are new exercises/challenges set every week so that is no chance of getting board. Great knowledge and expertise! Very efficient and easy to use!
Love love love it ❤️ Pilates Aim Easiest way to book with my favourite instructor at Pilates Aim
This class is one of the highlights of my week! Whilst working from home it’s easy to feel scrunched up into a ball but after Mina’s class I feel about two inches taller and so very relaxed. Her classes combine classic Pilates, barre, various equipment types and wonderful effective stretches. It’s innovative and tests the brain as well as the body. She’s an excellent teacher. Easy to book and reliable!
Quick, easy & efficient. Would recommend. Excellent service. Quick, easy and efficient. Would recommend.
Brilliant class and superb instructor. Totally COVID proof at this time. Not clear, long winded and I really don't want to use it again, but will have to book the classes I want!
Amazing, personalised zoom mat sessions of a faultless professional level. Great attention to detail & the needs of each client. An excellent service. Very easy to access & use.
Well worth it. Would reccommend Great online class with very precise instructions. Nice, friendly teacher.
It was boring. I was expecting a very happy environment but it looks like robots. It was a bit boring.
Purchase is easy but logging on to the session through the ‘Near You’ link does not always work. Louise thankfully sends us a separate ‘Zoom log in link’ to ensure we can log into the session quickly and easily. A really great online class...Louise explains all our postures, moves and breaching very clearly.
Jill Thornton's Pilates online live class 18:00 each Thursday is both relaxing and your tummy muscles certainly kick in the next morning! Just what I need when I get home from work. Thanks Jill. It does what it says it will.
Good service. Thank you. This place provides you with a great and relaxing atmosphere. David makes you work hard, in order for you to get better and better and this is the best part. It's a great feeling. Thanks.
Good value for money, if you don't mind the instructor talking at speed, like she had somewhere else to be. The instructor spoke far to fast. And either sat with crossed legs or out of shoot. I understand that there was a live class in progress, but I was still difficult to keep up.
I always feel so good after a yoga class with Louise, she is an excellent teacher and I really notice the difference if I miss a class.
The classes are well lead and the instructions are precise and clear. You guided through each exercise. The class is well lead and the instructions for the excer
Great yoga class. . Excellent teacher. Fantastic yoga class. Clear explanations. Calming yet strengthening..
Great sessions my son always enjoys in a safe environment. Excellent service
This is good value for money This is a really personal course which works well online. The trainer is careful to make sure that we can properly see her guidance and checks on what we are doing too. I find it just as beneficial as a face to face session.
Highly recommended family club Brilliant club
It easy and quick i just wish it would rember my card details like other sites I like the wayi can pay in advance for classes but i have trouble finding the club and class once logged in. Also i find my puchese history really confusing as its not in cronological order.
Jill is a brilliant teacher of Pilates - Body In Control Pilates, which is hugely different to some. She has a fantastic knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology and explains what muscles and joints are being worked in every different exercise. She even keeps us aware of breathing techniques all the way through. I would highly recommend her Classes. I've been going to Jill for something like 18 years. There's a recommendation in itself! Very easy to log into the page I wanted. Two reminders with links - most useful and reassuring. Smooth all the way.
Very good value for money Easy to use and would recommend
Claire shows a very intuitive quality when she communicates as well as empathy. Her online classes have been a ‘rock’ to me during lock down, increasing my flexibility and wellbeing. I love her yoga classes because they are not just about the exercise but also about absorbing and understanding the whole practice, its purpose and all its benefits. Her free weekly meditation class fior regular attendees really quieten the mind and help get a good nights sleep. She’s a an inspiring teaching.

very satisfied with online booking service My 7 year old son absolutely loves Kenshukai Karate classes and will definitely book him in on a regular basis. He has done martial arts since he was 3 years old and it has helped him grow in confidence and display good manners. Highly recommended as a personal life skill and method to maintain fitness including knowledge of self-defence. As for the App, It's Easy to locate class choice and select desired venue, date and time. Quick and simple booking and payment process
As above - not enough poses or sun salutations. Good teacher, however for my liking the class was a little to relaxing with not enough yoga moves. This was my first time here so maybe it was due to it being the first class back after lockdown with everyone being gently eased back in. Corridors of centre were noisy at times, door needs to be closed to alleviate this.
Beautiful studio - great instructors Beautiful studio - great instructors
Still excited to join every week. Have been exercising with Laura for over a year now and always excited about the next class.
Excellent! A marvellous class. It is wonderful. Just what I need.
Would recommend these classes to everyone! Book today you won’t regret it! Brilliant classes. Absolutely love them. So varied and caters for all abilities. I can’t believe how much stringer and bendier I am!
As always an interesting variety of work outs Jill Thornton is undoubtedly one of the very best Pilates teachers in this area Speedy simple and reliable
It was a fantastic workshop, informative, relaxing, rejuvenating and empowering, in a peaceful environment It was a great yoga experience, relaxing, rejuvenating and empowering in a lovely peaceful environment
Kenshukai Karate do is karate teaching at its best. All abilities and ages are welcomed. Shihan Aaron Harris is particularly good with the children in the class, patient, encouraging but quietly authoritative. An excellent role model for them. Easy to Select classes, book and pay, I like the reminders too!
Good friendly class, excellent tuition Good instruction
Absolutely recommend, excellent tutor, well thought out class and calming atmosphere. Fantastic for beginners and advanced
Excellent class good value for money Fantastic class. Enjoyable and just the right level of challenge
Great all round experience! Instructors are super interactive and helpful. Will be having more classes for sure. The yoga teaching experience was fantastic. Instructors including Ben Gemmell, Charlotte Sands and others were brilliant and explained their teaching points extremely clearly. Will come again - highly enjoyable and challenging classes!
Great class, great instructor. Will go again. Social distancing is being maintained and one way system worked perfectly. Easy booking and a great class.
Really well planned class, both from a Karate perspective and against the current COVID-19 requirements that have to be in place. Very friend place. Easy to use, really straight forward, would recommend.
Excellent value for money, interesting high quality instruction geared for both the young and elderly ( like myself) Excellent nearby organisation and excellent classes by Sara Pugh
Easy transaction, booking through the direct link sent to me by class organiser. I accessed my required class through a direct link, however I found it tricky to find again searching via the main site. Also couldn’t see how to add my preferred class To my Favourites.
Brilliant club, highly recommended Excellent club
Quick and easy to use and book through First time I used Pilates Near You looking for an online teacher due to work commitments. Excellent service and class. The response time was quick to confirm the class and got asked about injuries prior to the class. Tuba gave clear instructions about what to do, how to execute the movement correctly, modified the exercises to accommodate my back problem and explained common mistakes to look for. Enjoyable and informative class, which made me understand how my bad postural habits contribute to my back problem.
