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.
Super easy way to manage my class attendance Fantastic online class, with great tuition.
Great hourly sessions with Michele. Relaxing and helps you stretch and loosen your joints. Perfect teaching and so enjoyable.
Sally is the most brilliant teacher, very caring and is so knowledgeable about the ways that bodies work. I enjoy her classes enormously. Straightforward to book classes.
Saturday morning class with Liz I was looking for a Saturday morning yoga class and found Liz Duffen through NearYou. I really love the class, Liz is an amazing teacher, easy to follow and great motivator.
They offer an excellent choice of classes to do at home. What more can I say? I find the website hard to use but great experience with the Pilates with Jill Thornton on this website
Great class, with the image of something to get the correct positions and very well explained Great service, as to well the classes start, so you don't forget and reminder when you need to re-enrol
Easy, good idea to have blocks of classes for a discount, keeps me attending. Ease of use, helpful reminders. Excellent classes are a godsend at this strange time.
Great class. Always well thought out. I wanted to buy multiple different classes. But I couldn’t move to put different classes in the basket without checking the first ones out.
Michele is a wonderful teacher! Every session is different. Thank you. Michele is a wonderful teacher - every session is different. Thank you!
I have already done this. Why are you waking to repeat myself This is my first Pilates lesson in 6 weeks after minor surgery. I had a great lesson. Outstanding. Jill is an amazing teacher both technically and her knowledge of the human body and anatomy. She takes great care with her students to explain and connect these 2 things. She demonstrates everything so accurately and her exercises are True Pilates as Pilates would wish it to be taught. Not so about all Pilates teachers.
I am attending nearly all of Jill Thorntons classes on my monthly pass. Jill provides a great variety of classes teaching advanced shoulder stands, planks and HIT to gentle stretching and mobility. The variety of these three different levels of classes offers the opportunity to exercise every part of our bodies from core to ankles and eyes and all with interesting and challenging exercises. Jills has an excellent knowledge of the human body and years of experience allowing her to explain the focus of each exercise clearly, precisely and safely. Jill has kept me going through the lockdown and I would thoroughly recommend her classes . Thank you Jill !! efficient communication. Easy to see the various classes available
Reasonable easy to use this method of payment Inspiring good instructions improved presentation each week Clear concise doable Enjoy her style of teaching Good chat aswell before and after
Classes are varied, well organized and presented. Excellent explanation of the activities and their benefits. Very good teaching. Exercises are well explained.
Jill is world class. Her perfectionism and patience have been life-changing to me. Best instructor ever. Customer Service was great and Steve was very helpful as I had problems with the website at the beginning of the first class.
Jill Thornton is a very experienced pilates trainer who understands her participants problems and adapts her classes spot on. You wont find better! Recommended as simple to use especially making payments
Jill is a very experienced and enthusiastic Pilates teacher and I really like the way she organises the classes, they are never repetitive and constantly build on what we have learned. Whatever your level you will learn and improve and Jill is very good at explaining what something should be feeling like and things to avoid, so this means that even though she is not in the room, I know if I am doing something correctly or not. Jill is passionate about Pilates and it shows. I found it very easy to book what I needed, which was a monthly pass and then it was also quick and easy to book individual classes and join them on Zoom
Great classes - occasional technical issues Don't need to be sent an email for every class I book into. Each class I attend comes with 3 emails which is too much. Sometimes the links to the class are incorrect.
Great teacher, easy to follow instruction, lots of different options for different abilities. Very easy to book & pay for class online. Reminders of class sent by email. Joining class easy. Cheryl is very professional yoga teacher, i always enjoy class.
I was delighted when Jill said she would do Pilates via Zoom during lock-down. I have been attending her Classes for something like 17 or 18 years and that speaks for itself. To clarify, Jill is an excellent Teacher and has all her Pupils' interests at heart. She is highly trained and in great demand. Her understanding of the body is impressive and she explains everything really well, pointing out which muscles are being worked and why. She even directs us on correct breathing, something we can easily overlook when exercising. As an Octogenarian I hope to continue Jill's Classes into my 90's and beyond! Thank you Jill. I gave 5 stars for the Classes, but find the Near You site only adequate. It wasn't very easy to navigate my way round the site to get what I wanted and enlisted the help of someone at Near You. He was most helpful.
Jill’s a star of Pilates teaching at all levels I’ve been with Jill for around 16 years and benefit enormously from her deep knowledge of Pilates. Her classes are refreshingly varied, every move is precise and every class is a complete workout at every level. Sadly the confusing booking site on the NearYou website doesn’t rate so highly in my opinion.
Good value and has made it easy for me to book as many classes as I want and in advance. I am so pleased I found Jill Thornton's on-line Pilates classes during lock-down, an absolute godsend! She has been amazing and has covered so many different exercises. What I have also found especially helpful has been having focused sessions dealing with specific areas of the body, i.e. knees, shoulders, neck, with exercises to protect and strengthen these areas.
Thank you so much! This was a fantastic experience, so I am really looking forward to further meetings like. Everything went well!
High standard of teaching Excellent!
Another great class. Personalized, very clear, informative with excellent explanations. Very enjoyable. straightforward
Great class well thought through! Offering different levels and good detail on each move. To allow for the discount when booking 3 or more classes is only if you do it by being 3 Monday’s etc. Not if you book three classes in one week. Seems a ridiculous system.
Already mention in first question This site was easy to use yes I would recommend to friends. The emails remind you of your classes booked and payments for next session
Jill has a wealth of experience, offers classes tailored to a range of different abilities and the Intermediate class is just the challenge I needed to improve my fitness - hard work but in a controlled way. So far very efficient, which is essential with this type of service.
prompt acknowledgement of booking and timely reminder Prompt acknowledgements and timely reminders
Yoga class. Great yoga, clear instructions, tailored to needs. Professional and friendly. Excellent class. Love Diana's classes There are lots of emails for every booking as with all on line booking systems. I understand why but...
A very nice group healing experience. Richard is a wonderful guide. Convenient.
Excellent classes, really great. Kay is a brilliant teacher with a wealth of knowledge and a joy to join online, in class! Kay draws on her extensive knowledge of fitness and relaxation to impart it in and encouraging way.
Aileen is a fantastic teacher and keeps you motivated throughout the class Aileen is a fantastic teacher and keeps you motivated throughout the class
Excellent organisation and quality classes Great organisation with clear reminders and ease of operation. Great classes with Sara Pugh with clear instruction and use of imagery which I find very helpful. Sara provides explanations of how to apply the principles learned through the exercises in daily life and towards injury prevention. The Thursday class is particularly good for folks over 60 addressing age related issues.
Welcoming and friendly. Cheryl is an excellent teacher, who varies the programme from week to week, accomodating all abilities. Easy to use and speedy response times. Efficient method of accessing yoga sessions.
Mina is a wonderful teacher and makes it feel like you are in the room with her. Her exercises work all the muscle groups as she mixes it up each session with different moves. It has become a real highlight of my week. Easy to use
Good range of exercises but could speed up. Very good range of exercises but would prefer to speed up a little.
Jill is a very experienced Pilates teacher and can relate to all levels of abilities.The stretching class is particularly good for people with back issues. Easy transaction and I would recommend to friends.
Great value for this excellent Pilates class Sara our Pilates teacher is excellent at judging what our needs are and gives useful encouragement. She also provides exercises that stretches us
I have been attending Jill's classes regularly for many years. Her passion and knowledge are endless and this shows in her teaching. The class is really easy to follow with clear instructions and demonstrations - including correct breathing patterns - together with explanations as to why we are doing the exercise and the benefits it will give us. Really enjoyable and undeniably beneficial. Really easy site to use and logging into class straightforward with no fussing about. Would like to be able to use PayPal as another payment option.
I have attended Jill's Pilates classes for the last 17 years so was delighted that despite the lockdown, she carried on teaching online with the same professionalism as in her live classes. The Monday morning slots suits me perfectly as it gives a rhythm to my weeks and boost my morale in this dreadful confinement period. After a shaky start (wrong link to the zoom class...), the system seem to work as it should now with friendly reminder and easy payment method.
I have done a number of online classes with different teachers before and Jill is head and shoulders above the rest. Her class was fantastic- she used great verbal queues throughout with a good variety of exercises. Jill makes the class challenging but also provides easier variations and works around injuries. The Pilates Near You platform was simple and easy to use- a great service I would highly recommend. Pilates Near You was easy to use, quick to log-on and a great service overall.
Jill Thornton is an incredible Pilates teacher who is passionate about what she does which is evident in every class she teaches. Her support and free classes during lockdown have helped many of us keep some sort of fitness regime which has been crucial during this very difficult time. Jill offers classes at every level and is always looking to keep her teaching fresh and engaging. I now feel I want to support her by continuing Pilates and getting better at it which is something Jill cares deeply about . As we all get older it is essential that we keep our mobility, flexibility and even our 'core' in good order, Jill does all of this through her wonderful classes and I am very grateful. The service was easy to use, with clear instructions and a simple payment system.
Jill is a great teacher! I've attended many of her classes pre virus and the lessons continue to be outstanding over Zoom! Everything is well demonstrated, explained and easy to follow. I always finish the lessons feeling great. Highly recommended Easy to Use
Jill Thornton really knows her Pilates and gives good clear instructions which are easy to follow. She has different levels of classes to suit everyone. I have been going to Jill’s classes for 4 years and somehow she always manages to make every class different. She is a good advert for Pilates herself and her enthusiasm is catching! It was easy to book with Pilates Near You and I found the class I wanted to join with no trouble. The email reminders with the link to join the class were useful.
I love Jill’s classes. Although it was a zoom class It feels like you were in the room with her, as in a normal class scenario. It was easy to use and the class was great too!
Have been with Jill for 15 years Very well organised
Reformer Pilates classes with PilatesNow are constantly excellent and varied so that it never gets boring. Ris is great at adjusting levels to customer's needs and I feel always suitably challenged. Since the lockdown we moved to online matt classes which are to my surprise just as challenging and incredibly varied with very little equipment. I was able to keep my exercise regime and in fact have doubled down since lockdown to two sessions a week. Great customer service and webpage.
Excellent lessons good to keep up with Pilates in lockdown Yes they are excellent I will be buying them again.
Great instruction clear and precise. I would recommend Natalie her instruction is clear
I have tried a few Pilates classes and Jill is far and away the best at explaining the correct positions and how each move should feel. She has expert knowledge and I feel secure that her classes will push me in a safe way. Jill explains everything clearly and, whilst following the Pilates exercises, she also keeps the classes fresh and interesting. Easy to book and quick to send the email link for my class
Did Jill's advanced class yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some gentle exercises to warm up, then a definite increase in effort and difficulty. Well paced, with plenty of variety. The time went by very fast indeed. Jill also found time to answer questions at the end of the class; much appreciated. Worked fine this time. N.B. You have to keep your Zoom updated with the latest version or you may have difficulties.
Efficient service and seems secure Easy to use and pay. Reminds you of your upcoming class
Good value to be able to continue our weekly class This is a great class that works really well online with a professional teacher who provides a well planned yoga session which varies weekly.
Good instructor. Got to the bits in my back I needed My messages to an instructor were edited by NearYou without my permission. I won’t be using the website again.
Loved it very good and friendly instructor easy to follow Very easy to use easy links and instructions.
Jill is a great teacher. I have been going to her classes for over 5 years now and really enjoy and benefit from them. Exercises are often demonstrated at different levels to suit everyone in the class. After a few problems the first week everything went well this week. I received the link after booking and a reminder, all very easy.
