Testimonials

Cornerstone of my ‘rehabilitation team’ – for osteoarthritis

Denitta is the cornerstone of my ‘rehabilitation team’ – for osteoarthritis of the hip – aiming to prevent the need for a hip replacement.

She is highly skilled and designs individual programs for your needs.  There is no ‘one size fits all’ mentality.  Each program is specific for you, and flexible to changes in your condition.

I saw 2 specialists 5 years ago who both recommended immediate hip replacement.  My hip couldn’t get any worse – stage IV OA with bone on bone, oedema and bits of lacerated cartilage floating in the joint capsule.  Needless to say, movement was difficult.

Under the expert guidance of Denitta, my overall mobility and functional range has improved beyond belief.

Whether for rehab or if you just want to improve your physical well being, I cannot recommend Denitta highly enough.

We have not felt this good in so many years!

Plagued with multiple health issues, lupus, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis and a host of other auto-immune disorders I decided to to choose an alternative path of healing that would eventually lead to discovering Pilates.  I had lived with pain for too many years so I was a bit daunted to if my body would cope.  I had nothing to loose and everything to potentially gain, so off I went starting with one day a week sessions and have not ever looked back!

My husband Kevin had been going to the Gym for 2 years to control Type 2 Diabetes and having one too many injuries through his workouts which would put him out for 2-3 weeks at a time.  I encouraged him to give Pilates a go.  He was astounded how Pilates through Denitta’s instruction began to build up core strength and awakening parts of his body that the gym wasn’t.

Denitta not only gives full focused attention to all of her clients, but she has something money can’t buy, empathy! Kevin and I thoroughly enjoy our twice a week sessions, we are both physically healthier & stronger in our bodies and calmer towards our business, life on the whole and each other than we have been for so many years!  Highly recommend Denitta and Active Pilates.

Pilates Rewarding Career

I worked with the guidance of Denitta Morris  through my Diploma qualifying in Sept 15.  I trained with Denitta once a week on a personal level refining my movements, absorbing on a larger scale as I felt the exercises in my own body.  It was a great experience.  My observation hours allowed me to watch and take part as she herself taught clients.  As I became more equipped I worked the clients under her supervision, finally being able to program the clients in my own right.

I successfully work in the industry teaching mat classes and assisting clients in  the studio environment in reformer classes and one to one in privates. I am also the Pilates instructor in a Physio clinic.

Pilates has become such a rewarding career for me seeing the change as people become stronger, feeling and seeing the difference as they progress. I do not only work with clients with issues but also clients who are looking for general well being, fitness and health so my scope is varied and interesting.

Continuing my  education is important to me as I like been knowledgeable to assist my clients.
