“I was nervous to try Pilates at first because I’m really inflexible, so I wasn’t sure if I could do it.
When I tried my first class with Emma I loved it. It was a better workout than I imagined.
I didn’t want just breathing and stretching. I wanted to sweat and work hard – and I did.
Sometimes I feel weak in my lower back which can cause pain and I’ve noticed its better after doing Pilates.”Charlotte Glessner Monie
“I was unsure about Pilates, because I had heard there was a lot of equipment involved – I was happy when I found out I only needed a Mat.
I didn’t think my body would be flexible enough and wondered at 35 if I was too old to get started. I was so happy to know I could do it.
I’m seeing my posture improve every week, and starting to see my body toning up. I’m also performing better in my PT sessions. I love that feel all over my body!
I have lost a bit of post baby weight which I could never budge before Pilates. I have also improved my posture, balance, & flexibility. I’m noticing I’m stronger.
I enjoy Emma’s friendly approaching to coaching the class, but also that she is there to teach us and we work hard for the duration of the class. I know the classes are never going to the same, never boring. Emma will tailor to everyone’s needs. It’s an enjoyable but strong and beneficial workout. No matter how many are in the room – She see’s everything – right or wrong!”Jaclyn Patterson
“I would definitely recommend Emma as a Pilates Instructor to everyone who wants to tone up, have a real workout and especially anyone who wants to safely rehabilitate after an injury.
It is a real joy to have Emma Jory as my Pilates instructor. I had no hesitation about attending her classes as her warm, friendly and confident personality radiates from her and makes you feel secure in her ability to teach you safely.
I really like Emma’s style of teaching.. she is very knowledgeable and has a unique ability to explain exactly how to achieve moves. She always checks your form and advises you on adjustments to make so that you really get maximum benefit from each exercise.
I also appreciate the fact that Emma is always learning and attends new courses and updates her skills regularly.”Barbara Dunn
“You’ve initiated me to Pilates and that will stay with me for a lifetime”Sandrine
“I have been taking classes at Emergy for a few months now. Prior to this I was at a larger studio and found that I was getting injuries and had chronic problems in my body due to the size and nature of the classes. Since I have been doing Emma’s classes my body is now flexible and I no longer have any of these problems. Emergy is totally different — the classes are very personalised and the teachers are hands-on and work with each person’s individual needs and body type. I would recommend Emergy to anyone who is looking for a studio with well-trained instructors and personalised attention in a lovely warm relaxed environment.”Rosie Netterfield
“Emma is an amazing Pilates teacher. Not only are her classes challenging, they are enjoyable too. Emma has created a wonderful atmosphere for working out in. Her welcoming and positive personality makes it easy to exercise. Her gentle and happy disposition creates a great ambiance in the studio, attracting a group of clients that are also friends. Emma is very friendly, personable and puts you instantly at ease. She really cares about sharing her love and expert knowledge of Pilates to make a difference to her clients health and fitness. I really miss my sessions with you Emma!”Georgie Rees
“Emma is a wonderful teacher with a marvelous personality. The teaching was tailored to what I was able to achieve, and after nearly one year I can confidently say my golf swing and game has improved, and perhaps more importantly my posture, balance and general fitness, has also improved.”Peter Tulloch
“I’ve been getting many benefits from Pilates; overall muscle building and toning as well as an improvement in flexibility. All this is beneficial when playing with and lifting my kids, plus helping me to improve my swimming strokes. I also love the balance challenges in Pilates.
I enjoyed it far more than I thought, and want to keep doing Pilates. The level is good and its not easy, it always pushes me. It’s a lot to do with Emma’s teaching.
I really appreciate how Emma makes the classes very personalized. I love the way we have a laugh and Emma’s attitude towards each and every person is so friendly and positive. It’s both challenging and fun! Emma’s wealth of experience and friendly and down to earth character mean that you always feel relaxed and comfortable in her classes, but at the same time she manages to challenge and inspire you to learn more and to improve every time.
Classes are varied and interesting and Emma gives different levels for each exercise. I generally feel wobbly and like I had a super workout after class..”Clare Harvey
“I have become more confident and actually enjoy an exercise routine under Emma’s supervision. She is always positive and forgiving. I can feel the benefits of the correct breathing and alignment of the body during exercise and in daily life.
My apprehensions and possible embarrassment at starting Pilates at the beginning were instantly allayed. I felt completely confident with Emma and she made feel comfortable.
I appreciate Emma’s excellent knowledge of the physiology of movement and injuries. The explanations of each exercise made them interesting and relevant.
Emma has become a friend who genuinely cares. I can trust she will do the best for me and help me approach a more health lifestyle.
I would defiantly recommend Emma as a pilates instructor for first-timers and the more experienced, regardless of age. She has a great depth of knowledge and experience and a lovely warm nature.
As starting Pilates with Emma was my first venture into exercise in years, i needed the exercises reinforced more often. There are so many exercises, it can become a little overwhelming trying to remember them, but with positive feedback and Emma’s patience I can master some of them!
Emma has been so supportive of my limitations due to my knee surgery, but has also coached me into believing i can do more. I feel I have benefited greatly from the months of lessons both physically and in confidence. “Alison Neumaier
“Emma’s teaching skills are second to none. Using her expert knowledge, she easily accessed my physical strengths and weaknesses, and put all her focus into providing me with tailored exercises for mind and body during my private sessions. Her group classes are always well run and varied. I would never feel like I was just one in a number of people, as Emma successfully provides each student with personal attention, without losing track of time or the rest of the group.” –Louise Cooper
“The benefits I’m getting are amazing. Better posture, balance & exercising different supporting muscles. Better core strength is a biggy and also a more flexible back and body. Don’t want to be old and stiff!
Emma exudes confidence and has such a nice manner that puts everyone at ease, so I had no hesitations in doing Pilates with Emma.”Barbara Dunn
“I thought Pilates was just for the girls. Not tough enough for guys – but I was wrong! I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a good workout, its not easy. I have learnt some new things. Emma is a great teacher. I’ve benefited from better body awareness of some different muscles. Learnt some exercises properly – even the humble sit up. My back seems to be stronger and more durable since doing Pilates. I need less massages!”Paul Dunn
“I have been attending Emergy Pilates Lounge since it opened and always look forward to my classes. Emma and all her instructors are highly skilled and professional and pay special attention to each client’s needs. I feel stronger and healthier, my chronic neck pain has reduced and my posture has improved. Emergy is like a haven away from my busy world.”Joanne Shannon
“Emergy’s atmosphere and wonderful staff create an energetic, healing experience with positivity, kindness and guidance. I am eight months pregnant and have been searching for a suitable Pilates studio now since the beginning of my pregnancy.
I found many local studios/teachers were not able to give me the care, support and workout that I was searching for. Having a background in personal training myself, I enjoy a challenging yet safe workout which will allow me to maintain my strength and fitness levels throughout my pregnancy.
Since I discovered Emergy recently, through their warmth, encouragement and highly skilled trainers, I have become not only addicted to attending my three weekly Reformer classes, but I am also enjoying a healthier, stronger and happier pregnancy. I whole-heartedly recommend Emma and the team at Emergy to everyone. I feel truly blessed to have found Emergy at such an important time in my life. I will certainly remain a happy and dedicated client well after the birth of my baby and look forward to taking part in the mums and bubs class soon. Thank you, thank you.”Rebecca Betshchwar
