“About ten years ago, I retired from a largely sedentary job as a design engineer. To improve my health and fitness, I was persuaded to try a class at a new Pilates group (I’d always avoided gratuitous exercise!).

Now, at age 76, I can confirm that it really works. I’m sure that the fun and laughter in the group also help. Thanks, Sue!”


(Jonathan & wife Irene celebrated 10 years of Pilates with Sue in August 2019!)

I recently attended one of Sue’s workshops for the first time and it exceeded all my expectations !
It was just wonderful experience and I left feeling renewed and motivated to continue on a path of well being .
The half day included yoga, sound healing, meditation and a lovey lunch …Thankyou Nireexa !
Body Nuture is such a welcoming community regardless of ability and age. The equipment and calming environment contribute greatly.
I began Pilates four years ago – my flexibility and posture has improved so much and now I am trying the reformer classes.  Sue and Nicole challenge and give you confidence to be the best you can .
Everyone is welcome at Body Nurture .


“I originally started reformer pilates with Sue after a back injury with the aim of improving my core stability, I wouldn’t describe myself as the ‘sporty’ type but felt it was time to try something!

That was 2 and a half years ago and I haven’t looked back. I really enjoy coming to sessions with Sue and feel immediate benefits of each session. The class sizes are small and Sue is very good at tailoring the class to her students to make sure everyone is working to the best of their abilities.

I also started aerial yoga with Sue which is so much fun, and reduces my stress levels enormously. Sue creates a wonderfully calming atmosphere adding thoughtful extra touches to make the session extra special and I always feel 100% safe in the hammock.

I feel very privileged to have such an amazing facility so close to home”


“I have been attending weekly Pilates classes at Body Nurture with Susan for around 10 weeks and am delighted with the progress I have made. I started Pilates to strengthen my core following a herniated disc, but now wish I had started doing this years earlier as it has been an immensely satisfying experience.

Susan is a passionate advocate for Pilates, extremely knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher. Her sessions are challenging but always fun.  She demonstrates each move, anticipates potential errors her students might make, and tailors each exercise to her students ability, particularly any pre-existing injuries.

The premises and equipment are superb, and make for an excellent experience. I would recommend Body Nurture to anybody interested in Pilates, from beginner to expert.”

“I’ll start off by saying I’m a guy, and I loved playing sports and going to the gym. Following sessions with a Physiotherapist because of sports injuries, I was advised to consider Pilates with Sue. At first I was put off doing it under the impression that Pilates wouldn’t be a bloke’s type of thing and classes may make me feel uncomfortable, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Sue immediately made me feel at home. Pilates builds all over body strength as well as the core. It’s given me awareness of posture and muscles like I’ve never had before. I’m stronger, way more flexible and slimmer than I think I’ve ever been. To any guys considering it I would say go for it. Whether you want to get fitter, tone yourself up or strengthen your core, you can’t go wrong.”


“I started Pilates with Sue about 5 years ago after a back operation which meant I was unable to do any exercise which put strain on my back. Sue started off giving me very simple exercises to do and also spent time to make sure I was using the correct muscles to protect my back. I now attend a class with Sue every week and maintain a good routine. I will never be an Olympian but I can now do roll ups without my back being in pain. I feel much better – and don’t have to get sweaty in a gym!”


“Since I’ve been coming to classes at Body Nurture I’ve noticed a difference in my general well being. The small class sizes have enabled me to progress in both yoga and Pilates and I feel far healthier and less stressed as a result. Sue is passionate about what she does so the classes are always interesting and varied. She really cares about her clients and this is evident in her classes and treatments. I always look forward to coming to Body Nurture and would recommend it to anyone.”

“After starting Pilates very reluctantly because I knew I needed to do some form of exercise, I have been really surprised how much I enjoy it and  how much I have learned in a relatively short period of time. Sue makes it easy to follow, it’s fun and friendly!”
