I am 75 with arthritis and several old injuries. Since I have been coming to Richard's classes my walking and balance have become much better and my posture has improved enormously. I really notice the difference if I miss a few classes, which I try not to do.
I find the classes fun and sometimes quite challenging, but Richard encourages everyone to work to his or her own capability. No one ever feels left out and he gives us all individual attention when we need it and there are always new exercises to try.

"I've attended Pilates classes at various places but none of them are anywhere near as good as Richard's. Because Richard is very thorough in teaching us the technique and principles of Pilates, I reap the benefits immediately. The exercises resolve my stiff shoulders after office work, my posture has improved and my muscles are more toned. I've only started three months ago! There is a friendly atmosphere in class and Richard tailors his exercises for every level, so no one feels left out. By far the best Pilates class I've ever been to."  Marthe Dec 2015

"I love learning Pilates with Richard. I have been attending his Ealing classes for a few months now and already feel improvement in my core strength and posture. Richard is excellent at teaching the proper form for each exercise so I have really felt the benefit. The time in class flies by too so I am clearly enjoying myself!" Lavina. 2014

As a 60+ pensioner I was advised to do Pilates by my doctor after being diagnosed with arthritis last year. I have never really been a sporty person, I dislike gyms and for years I worked hunched over a computer. I was a bit sceptical at first but I joined PrimaPilates.co.uk in Ealing as a total novice. What's good is that the exercises are slow and not high impact and everybody works at their own speed and level. The classes are small which means more personal attention from the teacher. Results can sometimes seem a bit subtle but over time the core muscles become stronger, flexibility improves and the exercises become easier. I now look forward to my class every week, I feel fitter than I have done for a long time, and I have lost some weight. 
Prices are reasonable, there are different packages available, you can organise your classes to suit your timetable so you get what you pay for, and the atmosphere is friendly. I would definitely recommend it.
