Private Tuition

Why take a Private Class?
Because you are an individual. Your needs and life experiences differ from those of other people. You will do best at achieving your aims with specific understanding of your own posture and your own body. You will learn with confidence and clarity what to do for your particular body and your particular lifestyle.

Your aim may be freedom from pain, greater flexibility, better health or enhanced sports performance. With Jan as your personal coach you will definitely improve and progress.

Wear easy-stretch clothing and refrain from eating before your appointment. If relevant to your condition bring along any xrays or reports from your doctor or chiropractor.

During the class Jan will analyse your posture and your gait and then help you to achieve your objectives by taking a three-step approach to your health and fitness.

Step 1. Pain Relief. Step 2. Remedial. Step 3. Progress

Each step is carefully tailored to suit your individual needs and capabilities. You are taught only the exercises which are correct for your particular body and your particular condition or aims. Importantly, you will learn to exercise maintaining your correct posture and anatomical alignment. The emphasis is on stretching, strengthening and restoring. The work is thorough, but not difficult.
