Amanda is a very friendly and welcoming lady who makes you feel at ease in her classes. She is a supportive and encouraging instructor with an enthusiasm for Ballet that is infectious. Although there are a range of abilities in the class, Amanda makes sure that people do not feel out of their depth. The classes are fun and challenging, promoting strength, flexibility and co-ordination. I would highly recommend Amanda's classes to anyone with an interest in Ballet.

After suffering from a very painfull hip and leg for a whole year, I was introduced to Bowen. What a find! I am 87 years old and after a few treatments of Bowen, it is absolutely wonderful to be pain free and able to walk properly again plus improved breathing and other problems. I am so grateful for Bowen. Thank you.
Mrs J E S of Worthing
I would just like to say a very big thank you for treating my Sciatica. I have been able to climb the stairs and walk uphill everyday without pain. I have gone back to running and slowly rebuilding my fitness again. I cant believe what a difference it has made and it has enabled me to become active again. I would definately recommend Bowen Technique to others now. Thanks so much.

I had been to 3 different Pilates teachers, all nice people, but I didnt enjoy the classes as I didnt really understand what I was doing or meant to be doing. The teachers didnt appreciate that we have different bodies and/or problems and were of different ages. Then I started Amanda's Pilates classes. Suddenly everything made sense. Amanda teaches the 'why and the how' slowly and carefully and treats us as individuals. She understands that people are different, accepts our limitations, yet encourages us to go as far as we can. I enjoy her lessons and benefit from Pilates. There is much I cant do and do very well, but there is even more I can do and that makes me feel good about myself.

Amanda's Ballet class is informal, friendly and fun, whilst gently challenging one's abilities in a completely non threatening way.

For the past 10 years I have suffered severe headaches two or three times each week and constantly taking painkillers. My GP kept putting it down to stress. A friend of Amanda's suggested that I might benefit from seeing her. I had 3 treatments of Bowen Technique and since then I have been almost totally free of headaches! I found Amanda to be a very caring, sensitive person who made me feel totally as ease in the professional ambience of her treatment room.

Having tried various keep-fit classes over the years, I always come back to my love of Ballet. It is a fantastic way to work out - creative and fun. Remembering steps is a good workout for your brain too! Amanda is able to make sure everyone is suitably challenged by offering alternative choices of steps and movements as we go along. Amanda uses some lovely music and the whole thing definately helps to de-stress you. I highly recommend the classes.
Mrs A H of Worthing
I realise how hard you had worked to 'ease' my pain in my back and shoulder, for this I thank-you more than you can imagine.
I only needed to take one paracetamol after seeing you and no tablet since then!
For the past 2 nights I have slept well and as you know, before our meeting, the pain prevented me sleeping and finding a position I could lie in. I am doing the exercises you advocated. You are truly wonderful, I cant think of the dreadful pain I would be in, if it wasn't for you and Bowen. A big Thank you!

Mandy is an experienced teacher who is very knowledgeable about the body's mechanics and how pilates can help maintain and improve everyday function. I value her gentle, encouraging approach but also enjoy the way she challenges us to do the more difficult exercises. The lovely studio setting for her mini-group classes is relaxed and informal and the small classes mean Mandy is able to give us more individual correction when necessary. I have a long standing back weakness and stiffness and since attending her classes, I have been able to manage without regular osteopathy.
Mrs S T of Worthing
Thanks for the brilliant pointe shoe fitting, really good fitting, not rushed and lots of choice.
We'll be back again and have recommended you to others.
Ms P R A of Portslade
I can highly recommend Mandy as an excellent Pilates teacher. I have had an on-going shoulder problem for over a year with pain, stiffness and numbness. I had tried massage for 6 months and physio with no results. After just 2 months of Pilates, the pain has been relieved. Mandy is extremely knowledgeable and has a very calm and positive way with her class. She will challenge you if you want to be challenged, but will never make you feel forced to do anything that you do not feel comfortable with. each individual is valued and there is absolutely no feeling of competition between the members of the class. I'm a Pilates convert !

Just a quick email to thank you for your time recently in fitting pointe shoes for my daughter. She had her first class wearing them last Saturday and was so much more comfortable. She is so pleased with them..Thanks again.
Mrs L C Storrington
" I feel very lucky to have found Mandy at Pointe Performance. What this lovely lady doesn't know about the shoes, anatomy, posture and injury, I would suggest, is not worth knowing. Such a kind manner,and thorough approach, in a lovely studio, with no interruptions. I would highly recommend anyone needing pointe shoes visit Mandy. You just wouldn't go anywhere else."
I really wanted and needed to thank you for your effort! The shoes arrived and I couldnt be happier. They are perfect. Next time I will definately order from you again. So happy with my order and how quick and easy it went. Big big thank you once more.
Ms D T (Germany)
"Thank you so much for sending the pointe shoes and for your fast, attentive service!
Mrs C T (Herts)
"I just wanted to say a big thank you for last weeks pointe shoe fitting for my daughter, amazing knowledge, excellent service, we will be recommending your service to lots of her ballet friends"
