About Joyce and her Bristol Pilates classes :
'Joyce is a truly wonderful Pilates teacher who really 'knows her stuff'. She has an incredible understanding of the human body and instinctively seems to know what is right for each individual in the class. She is kind, patient and supportive, encouraging each participant to work to the level that is right for them. I have been attending Joyce's classes for seven years and love them! I would encourage anyone who may be looking for a Pilates teacher to book a session with Joyce - you will not be disappointed!' Nicola
'I started Pilates in Bristol as a beginner with Joyce a year ago - to try and improve my posture and reduce upper back pain. Now I look forward to the weekly class, and always leave feeling better. My friends tell me I look taller... so it is working both inside and out! I highly recommend coming to Joyce's class.' Laura
'I highly recommend Joyce's fantastic Bristol based Pilates classes. She has a friendly, knowledgeable approach that puts you at ease, relaxed enough to challenge yourself. I look forward to class every week and can feel my body (and mind!) clicking into place as we work.' Holly
'When I first started Pilates with you the alternative was spinal surgery - that was about 5 years ago, and I haven't been to my doctor about my back since!' Lorna
'I came to Joyce's pilates class after several years of lower back pain, primarily as a result of having 3 children in 5 years. The result has been amazing! The pilates, coupled with a weight-loss programme, has completely resolved my abdominal weakness and with it the backpain. When I started with Joyce, I was not a newcomer to exercise, but my children were still very young and I was generally busy and often tired.
The classes are so relaxed and meditative and in such beautiful surroundings that I feel like I am going to pamper myself, although I often notice the next day that I must have worked quite hard! This has made it much easier to keep going, even though I don't manage every session.' Heidy
'After having my two children I had several years of constant back pain, stiffness and numbness. The single thing that has made the biggest improvement is Pilates, and of the several teachers I've tried, Joyce Tyson is by far the best. I've been going to her classes for several years, and can now do exercises I could never have dreamed of when I started. Joyce is always aware of each person's specific needs and weaknesses and tailors her classes to gently stretch, but not put at risk or put off, her clients. I now take for granted my flat stomach and reasonable bottom. Thank you Joyce!' XX!
About the WalkTall Pilates Holidays :
'A thoroughly enjoyable and nourishing Pilates weekend. Loads of Pilates, with Joyce's brilliant teaching and characteristic kind attention to detail. I felt as though I made real progress.
It was relaxing, in lovely surroundings, with fantastic food - a real break from the everyday routine and well worth doing. I am looking forward to the next one!' Nicola, Bristol
'The late summer Pilates weekend I had last year with Joyce and a small group of like minded Pilates enthusiasts was truly brilliant!!! I went alone but the friendly greetings and informal atmosphere of our friendly farmhouse hosts made for a very special time. I appreciated the individual tuition made possible by a small group. Positions were gently corrected! Nothing escaped Joyce! What a difference being in the correct positions has on your core muscles! I learned lots of new techniques and have ordered some equipment to use at home.
The beautiful tranquil location in Cornwall, fabulous home cooked food, and some warm sunshine was just the break I needed. Please can we do it again Joyce!!!!' Linda, Monmouth
'Joyce's Pilates classes were amazing as always, helping us to release our stressed muscles and rediscover better posture, but set in the farm's beautiful studio with stunning views it was a heavenly experience!
A 40 minute walk through beautiful woods brings you to Crackington Haven Bay and I thoroughly recommend a dip in the Atlantic when the tide's out.
And last but not least the farm tour was an unforgettable experience due to 2 of the most adorable lambs I've ever met. Danny and Jack have been hand reared by Gary and Max and love to be stroked and played with and have the softest coats imaginable.
Thank you Joyce, Gary and Max for a truly wonderful weekend. I hope to be back very soon. Love Ruth xxx' Bristol
