  • Vir is the best Pilates teacher I have experienced. Group classes are a good pace and there are always new body patterns to try out. Best of all Vir has a keen eye and is ready to correct and adjust individuals and encourage - vital!
    Jacquie, Andover.

  • I have really enjoyed and valued your classes Virginia - I find it incredible that you come round to everyone and sort out even the tiniest corrections etc. I'm so glad that I have found a top-rate Pilates teacher at last. Thank you so much!
    Nadine, Andover.

  • Pilates helped me to overcome my back problems and stay in shape. I find it extremely therapeutical. Good instructor is difficult to find. I have tried several in the past. I have been going to Virginia's group classes for over 5 years now and could not be more grateful for guidance and motivation that I receive from each of her classes.
    Jana, Middle Wallop.

  • I come away from Vir's Pilates class walking taller and feeling better. The group classes are of the right size to be friendly yet leave time for individual attention. Vir is extremely focused on individuals particular requirements and works hard to make sure everyone is working safely. Vir is very knowledgable and keen that classes are suited to you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommending Equilibrium Pilates to others.
    Kerry, Andover.

  • Great Pilates courses run in small groups with full guided instruction to suit individual needs. Cannot recommend highly enough.
    Cheryl, Andover.

  • I've been attending Vir's group classes for over 6 years now, and I thoroughly enjoy them. She patiently helps those of us for whom such exercises don't come naturally to find the correct positions and learn how things should feel, whilst making the classes great fun. I wholeheartedly recommend Vir's classes for people of all ages.
    Sue, Stockbridge.

  • Many thanks Vir for your fantastic classes. You have certainly helped my back to recover, and now keeping it strong for years to come!
