In 2010 I was suffering with two bulging discs. I was in constant pain, unable to sleep or play any sport and was struggling. I had seen every ‘back specialist’ under the sun; orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths. I was very close to heading down the path of surgery and a back fusion. In desperation I went to see a neurosurgeon who recommended Pilates. After a few false starts I found Celeste.

What Celeste did for me over the next 12 months was truly remarkable. I went from being unable to function, to better than I was before I had the disc issues. After being told it was unlikely I would run, play tennis or golf again to being to do all of this and more. It was hard work and required discipline but the results were impossible to deny. I coupled Pilates twice a week with gym, swimming and running. After a couple of years I was fitter and stronger than I had ever been.

Eight years later Pilates with Celeste is still a very important part of my fitness regimen. Celeste continues to build my core strength, balance and flexibility. She has also helped me through a myriad of ‘niggling’ injuries sustained through the sports I play.

I could not recommend Celeste and Soul Pilates highly enough. Working with Celeste literally changed my life.

I always leave Soul Pilates feeling taller stronger and more aware of how to hold and move my body more efficiently.


Long term client with much gratitude to Celeste and her team



I have been a Pilates-devotee for many years.  I learned more from Celeste and her team in one week than I had in 10 years at another studio, and continue to learn with each visit.   Each session is individually tailored to my specific needs – and each session is stimulating and rewarding.

I just love Soul Pilates!
