Shamata Pilates is a slice of heaven. I've always been team/contact sports person for fitness, and as a result of this sought out a "solo" me time form of exercise. and boy, did i find a slice of heaven! Shamata staff are all so very supportive, informative and helpful throughout class, also before/after they great and welcome you like an old visiting friend. Everyone is always anticipating and excited to get into the room for a work out, whatever that work out entails from them on that day, its as much a mental workout as it is a physical one. Shamata pilates has opened my mind and calmed my world, mys stress is less through learning effective breathing, as well as my body feeling fresher and functioning better, especially after my netball. I also suffer from a mild for of scoliosis (curved spine) and see my chiropractor less frequently now. I simply cannot praise Shamata Pilates enough, it has opened my world, given me some "me time" and helped me appreciate the simple things, and stop and breathe in the good. Not to mention the cup of herbal tea after a class. Full gold stars!
