PILATES ABC Henley is owned by Pilates enthusiast Alyth Yealland.

Alyth took up Pilates to help her back pain and, thrilled with her own success, went on to train to teach.

Alyth teaches gentle, balanced exercises to help improve everyday posture, flexibility, muscle tone, joint and back pain.

“I’m really proud of my clients’ achievements,” says Alyth. “It’s wonderful to watch clients’ posture and flexibility improve, how relaxed clients become by the end of a session.

“I am also seeing an increase in clients over 70. The beauty of Pilates is it can be taken up by all ages with equal effectiveness.”

Movements are choreographed to suit the individual, adapting or offering alternatives dependent on their needs. Beginners are welcome and a free taster class is available to all newcomers.

Alyth teaches Pilates for all levels.

She also teaches Pilates for antenatal and postnatal clients, diastasis recti (separated tummy muscles), arthritis, breathing, falls prevention, hip and knee replacements, osteopaenia/osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and scoliosis — either in a private session or in a group class.

Pilates ABC Henley offers classes in Henley, Crazies Hill, Hurley, Knowl Hill and Sonning Common.
