"I recently moved out of the Dartford area and was really missing my weekly Pilates class with SuperJo.
A friend recommended I try out Jo’s Zoom classes as she had found them very convenient and enjoyable.
I am so glad I did! It is very easy to book the classes and set yourself up and if there is a difficulty Jo is always happy to help out.
With Jo’s Zoom classes I have benefited not only from her expert Pilates instruction and relaxed and friendly approach but also enjoy still being part of her Pilates community and the friendships and support this brings. I feel like Jo is in the same room as me, she misses nothing!
I have gone from doing 1 face to face class a week to now taking advantage of a Zoom class pass where I can do many classes in a week as it is so convenient practising from home. No driving, traffic or parking … also a big bonus!"
“I can honestly say that the zoom classes with Jo have been invaluable. To be able to have a class in your own home and still see all your friends has been a godsend. I am sure that without my Pilates classes I would never have recovered from my back operation as well as I have.
Jo makes you feel very comfortable and will always go the extra mile to make sure you can do the exercises, and if you are struggling, she will always have another alternative.
Jo's first commitment is always to make sure we are all happy.”
“I've been doing classes with Jo since I was about 12, so over 12 years now! I started joining classes with my mum before starting them properly. Jo always does her research if you have any medical diagnoses that she hasn't worked with before and Jo's hard work with me has been the biggest game changer for my bad knee, meaning I discounted surgery as a result.
She's also massively helped my back from being at desks all day. She was a lifesaver during the pandemic, keeping me moving on Zoom and I look forward to classes all the time. I even did exercises she taught me through uni when I couldn't join her classes as missed being part of them. Jo is an absolute joy and brightens up any day in her classes whether in person or zoom. She has also built a community, with so many people building friendships through her classes. I cannot recommend her enough!"
"I have been doing Pilates for 2 years now. Pilates was recommended by my Golf coach who noticed a remarkable difference in my flexibility and posture within a few months of doing Pilates with an outstanding Pilates Instructor Jo Southgate.
Taking up Pilates is one of the best things I have done in recent years.
If you are lucky to be trained by Jo as your Pilates instructor, count yourself extremely lucky. Jo is not only an amazing Pilates Instructor, she is also a wonderful person and a very good friend who knows her clients very well indeed. Before starting a class, Jo is able to pick up any problems her clients have simply by their posture. All my Pilates friends will agree that this is an amazing skill. Jo knows the relevant exercises for neck problems, back issues and hip problems. I am really impressed by this. Sometimes Jo finishes our lesson with relaxation session which is really calming. You certainly go home a different person. Now and again Jo tests her clients knowledge on the principles of Pilates which I thoroughly enjoy and I am glad to say that Lateral Breathing is a new skill I have learnt from this really gifted Pilates instructor. For this I am very grateful to Jo.
I would gladly recommend Jo’s Pilates classes to anyone."
“I used to do face to face Pilates with Jo years ago but stopped once I moved.
During lockdown it was an ideal opportunity to restart due to Jo arranging online zoom classes.
I find these more convenient to fit in around my routine as no travelling is needed.
I also feel that Jo can help you much more on zoom and the small classes mean it’s easier for Jo to correct you.
Jo is so friendly and approachable, nothing is too much trouble.
I’m now more aware of my posture and motivated to keep on improving."
