“I contacted Marjan at the end of May due to lower back stiffness that I had been suffering with since January. I had spent a month having Physio and the physio had confirmed my condition as stemming from “Anterior Pelvic Tilt ”, which had built up over years due to sitting at a desk for long hours. Essentially ones hip flexors shorten which results in the upper pelvis being pulled forward causing a hollow in the lower back which causes a whole host of problems . In my case standing for any length of time was a problem and my running was suffering as well. Sitting down brought almost instant relief.I had researched the condition and had come up with a bunch of exercises designed to strengthen ones core and stretch the hip flexors and had been doing them for a couple of months while undergoing Physio before I called on Marjan. I was feeling despondent at the time as I hadn’t seen any improvement yet. Marjan advised that this was not a quick fix and would take some time . She immediately released the tension in my lower back and advised that I see her twice a week in June . The exercises in her studio and the exercises she gave me to do at home were fairly moderate and she stressed that I needed to slow down and that less was more.I felt about a 30% improvement at the end of June and continued seeing Marjan once a week in July . Now at the end of July I feel an 80% improvement and believe I`m well on the road to being healed.
I am extremely grateful to Marjan , she is thorough and explains her reasons for each exercise . She believes that pain is the bodies way of communicating the stress it is under and doesn’t believe in hiding from it with pain killers.
She gave me home exercises to do which I have been fastidious about and can honestly say that I have never had such a strong core. She stresses core work daily which takes no more than ten minutes but the results are incredible.
I highly recommend Marjan for her depth of knowledge and patience , she is truly passionate about her subject and her work . She did every exercise with me which is going above and beyond !”

“I have been working with Marjan since November 2017 and originally went to her to relieve severe back pain and stiffness. Her total understanding of my injury and symptoms enabled her to relieve me of my pain within a month. This being after going to physio therapists for 2 years to no avail.
She has helped me understand my body better so that I can better manage my own recovery when travelling e.t.c. She has in a period of six months enabled me to start working on my other physical goals without any discomfort. I highly recommend her one on one classes.”

“I met Marjan at Virgin Active Lonehill whilst I was in SA for a short time. I had PT sessions with her and cannot recommend her highly enough. I didn’t know exercise could be such fun. Every session was so varied which makes exercising more of a pleasure than a chore. She is both extremely professional and friendly at the same time.”

“Personal Pilates sessions with her have been most rewarding. She is constantly learning new methods/techniques and experimenting with new ideas/equipment to improve the fitness of her clients. She has a keen eye for postural deficiencies and adjusts training to support correction thereof. She also adjusts the training to suit the client’s needs, mood and current state of being. She gives far more value for her session cost rate than expected. Her passion, enthusiasm for her craft and her love for learning is inspiring.”
