I have 2 levels of prolapsed discs in my lower lumbar spine, pain is an everyday occurrence. Not many instructors who profess to know Pilates dare to take up my case and those who are brave enough sometimes are just not creative enough to make a difference.
I stepped into the PBT studio on Amoy a few years ago, not knowing any of the instructors on the wall! Jane attended to me, patiently answered my numerous questions and convinced me that she could help. I was initially apprehensive but I am so glad we gave each other a chance. Every session, Jane patiently devised exercises and kept coming up with different alternatives that were effective but did not trigger those back spasms. We steadily worked through my many problem areas and injuries (there were quite a few!). When I first started, I suffered from back spasms every other month. I am very happy to say that in the past year, I do not recall any significant back pain episodes and can largely manage with work and family life. Jane has been instrumental in this journey. She relentlessly reminds me of my goal to be pain-free, to be a strong mum to my over-sized baby, and is a constant source of joy and positiveness. Life is enjoyable now. I cannot thank her enough.
