“I first met Dav in 2002 when I began training to become a Pilates instructor. I have come to appreciate his calm manner and excellent communication skills, and respect his great knowledge of Pilates and biomechanics. His abilities as a teacher and a physiotherapist are without question a cut above the average”.
“For the last 10 years I have been a Pilates student of Dav’s and he has helped change my body from a very stiff, immovable one to a supple, flexible one. I have stenosis of the lumbar spine, sacro-iliac joint issues, and a spondylolisthesis in the cervical spine and he has managed to help me find ways to move my body that I never thought possible”.
“Trust is a huge thing coming back from any sort of back injury, particularly surgery. I went from feeling very negative to hopeful and positive. Not only did Dav get my total trust and confidence in the recovery phase post surgery, he also took me through a process beforehand to ensure that surgery really was the final option".
"Extremely professional but at the same time personable, I regard Dav as a friend for all the support and care he showed me during my injury and post surgery recovery. Dav has a genuine interest in you as a person, and getting the best out of you. He employs subtle ways of questioning what you do so that you end up coming around to the solution yourself”.
"I first began to study Pilates with Dav five years ago when I was in my mid 60’s. While I was relatively active and healthy, I had back pain as result of spondylolisthesis and joint pain related to arthritis. I was also concerned about osteopenia moving toward osteoporosis".
"Dav assured me that it was possible to gain strength and flexibility by doing Pilates and worked with me to improve my posture and taught me how to safely bend and lift".
"Working with Dav empowered me to become active in building my strength and flexibility. Recently, I had the pleasure of an extended visit with my newest grandchildren, two active boys. I spent many happy hours each day of my visit lifting and carrying the youngest, pushing the pram up hills, walking fast enough to keep up with the three-year old on his scooter, and moving about on the floor in order to play with cars or trains. At bed time, I was happily tired but felt strong and pain-free".
