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.
Great Pilates lesson with Jill. She is an excellent instructor with brilliant verbal instructions and demonstrations of the execution of the moves. Her care for all her clients shines through her lessons from beginning to end. I love her style and thoroughness. After my lesson with Jill I feel so energised. Yes excellent Service and easy to follow.
Varied and fun classes, each one is different. Jill is very experienced and knowledgeable and we always learn a lot in her classes. As long as you know the basics, you can work at your own level and Jill’s very good description of each exercise and how it should feel means that you are not missing out anything by using the Zoom platform. Excellent class and easy to book on line, the classes are varied and suitable for all but a total beginner. You can work at your own rate and there’s always something new to learn. Jill is a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher and we always get a lot out of her classes k
I think the offer is very good value. Sara is an excellent Pilates instructor and always gives clear instructions for each exercise. The class is always enjoyable.
I like the reminder on the day. Jill is a wonderful teacher. She does all the exercises with you and tells you how to breathe properly and caters for all abilities. Her classes are varied and she always has time to answer questions at the end.
Excellent Pilates teaching via Zoom Excellent Pilates teaching delivered via Zoom
Great for beginners, mature students, or those with mobility issues. This is a good stretch class with lower level Pilates moves Jill explains the moves thoroughly and she’s easy to follow. this clsss really helps with stiff muscles aches and pains and certainly improves mobility. I have always found this service (Near You) to be efficient and easy to access. Jill Thornton is an amazing Pilates teacher, she is passionate about Pilates, highly knowledgeable and very motivating! Jill takes you through each move step by step, including when to breathe in/out and what mistakes to watch out for. There are lower level classes for beginners/improvers, also intermediate and advanced classes, something for everyone. If you’re looking for a Pilates teacher, whatever level you’re at, I would highly recommend Jill. Looking forward to her next class...!
The Classes are tailored to suit every age and ability. Excellent instruction, even to the point of correct breathing. I hope they will continue after the summer break. Yes. Excellent service, and wonderful Pilates.
Brilliant workout. The exercises were an extensive range that really toned every part of my body. Excellent class with a Brilliant range for exercises. This instructor is worth her weight in Gold.
Jill is wonderful - she teaches with enthusiasm and variety - always gives 100% effort Classes are a fun way to health. Very good!
Excellent teacher always giving clear instructions and useful information about how the exercises help particular parts of the body. In addition always indicates the right time to breathe correctly. Easy to use, good to have reminders of classes booked, excellent Pilates teacher.
Jill Thornton’s classes are well structured, based on her extensive knowledge of Pilates. She is always ready to adapt if anyone has any specific difficulties such as painful knees or shoulders. As far as NearYou is concerned, it should be much easier to select classes and timings. The whole process feels very clunky and it’s difficult to correct errors
Good and easy to use and the reminders are very helpful Excellent teacher, with very clear instructions as to what to do and explanations about the value of particular exercises for different parts of the body.
Jill's classes are very enjoyable and are as challenging as you want to make them. I would thoroughly recommend. great service
Very easy process to get to the event Excellent event
Excellent value for money for a wonderful practice Shannon is an exceptionally kind, patient, experienced and knowledgable yoga teacher. Her practice leaves me feeling calm, string and supported. I feel exceptionally lucky to be able to share my yoga journey with her and I would thoroughly recommend her classes for novices through to experienced yogis alike.
Love the class, excellent instructor Easy to set up account and make the payment
Very Good Classes and Instructor Very efficient.
Fantastic set of yoga classes by Michele. Simple to connect, and easy to follow classes :) Near you makes booking my yoga classes easy, but as you're not able to book more than 1 set at a time, I have only given 4 stars
It is fairly simple to complete the purchase The classes are very well run. The instructions are very easy to follow with explanations on which muscles you are targeting and why. On some of the exercises an option to make it a harder or easier will be explained too if you feel you need it.
Very good Pilates zoom class Very good service
Was very easy easy to understand and follow along with. Great mixed ability alternatives too. Really useful for my strength and balance too. I felt both energised and relaxed afterward! I loved the class - It wasn't hard to access online either.
