"Madia’s knowledge about the body is outstanding! She helped me with all the aches and pains during pregnancy and now post-partum! Her classes are fun and she always throws some advice here and there, with a gentle and welcoming approach!"

Madia has been such a fantastic help in my recovery post baby no.2. From coming to my home for a mommy MOT, to one on one sessions and the wonderful mom and baby pilates. I highly recommend Madia for any new moms looking to get pelvic floor/core...sanity back on track post baby. Thank you Madia!

I attended Madia’s pregnancy Pilates class in Balham and am looking forward to attending the postnatal class as soon as I can. Also received excellent home physio assessment following the birth of my daughter. I would absolutely recommend Madia’s highly professional and caring services.

Friendly and motivating! Great Pilates class, super flexible and more than just the right amount of ouch!

I’ve started Pilates with Madia last month and cannot recommend the class highly enough. The workout (under Madia’s watchful eye), atmosphere, opportunity for my baby to socialise are all absolutely priceless.

I wish I’d joined the class ages ago!

I’ve been going to Madia’s prenatal and now postnatal Pilates classes for over a year and I cannot recommend highly enough. It’s great to have someone know you and your particular needs and give guidance during classes based on these. I’ve also had a deep tissue massage which has soothed away aches and pains in the comfort of my own home. Again, can’t recommend highly enough!

I’ve been doing Pilates with Madia for 3 years now and can highly recommend her. The classes have helped me build strength back in my core after birth, toned me and increased my fitness levels. Madia is very personable, is conscious of tailoring to individual ability, but also pushes you to the next level when it’s right to do so. The classes are enormous fun and I’ve got to know a great group of women there.

Madia has helped me to regain strength after the birth of my second child in 1to1 sessions. I felt like I was in an alien body after pregnancy but she has really helped me feel stronger and more confident about what I need to do going forward. I have never really enjoyed these sorts of exercises before but Madia has been very patient with me, knowing when to push me and makes it fun. She even manages to keep my baby happy at the same time! She has also inspired me to buy more exciting leggings!!
