It’s is a great friendly class very enjoyable you can exercise at what every pace you can do and feel so good afterwards. Some of us meet up in cafe for tea coffee or drinking chocolate and a good chat.
Lesley, Aqua at Pavilions
I regularly attend Lorraine's 50+ aqua fit. It is an excellent all over body workout that you can do at your own pace and ability. The session is great fun and the social side of it is brilliant.
Ann, Aqua at Pavilions
I have been going to Lorraine's Aqua class for about 7 years and all her exercises are fully explained and up to you to do according to your ability. More importantly they are fun and we have a laugh doing them with her and you will feel fitter after the session.
Sue, Aqua at Pavilions
This class is a friendly and welcoming place to come . The exercises are always explained well and different variations of each one are offered depending on your level of fitness. So it is a truly inclusive and fun.
Sonia, Aqua Pavilions in the Park Horsham
Lorraine's Pilates classes are hugely popular and it is easy to see why. She makes everyone feel welcome, clearly demonstrating all movements and giving options allowing everyone to participate. She notices every incorrect move, adjusting your positioning to perfect the technique. I have found her classes greatly beneficial, improving core strength and balance. A lovely lady and expert in her field.
Liz, Steyning leisure centre Pilates.
Hi Lorraine, Your classes have been good for me, very helpful being Non weight bearing. I have enjoyed getting to Meet New People though exercise and your class.
Graham, Aqua Pavilions in the Park Horsham
I have been going to Lorraine's Aqua-fit class for nearly 17 years and still enjoy them. She is always willing to give advice if you have any problems coping with any of the exercises. You can make it as hard or as easy as you prefer and she makes them enjoyable. You can definitely feel the benefit of doing these exercises and I do miss her class if I am unable to make It.
Marilyn, Aqua Pavilions in the Park Horsham
Lorraine Hannah offers a unique service that is so much more than personal training. She has a huge experience and deep understanding of the linked physical and psychological interactions needed to develop physical and mental wellbeing. She has many years experience working with MS, Parkinsons and dementia clients. She also offers preventative excercises for hip and knee deterioration and recovery from hip and knee operations. She is highly recommended.
Peter, Specialist PT
I have been attending Lorraine's classes for several years. Brilliant for developing and maintaining core strength with relaxation benefits too. The classes are small enabling Lorraine to tailor the exercises in case of individual aches and pains. I wouldn't be without these classes in my fitness and wellbeing regime.
Nicola, Pilates Wiston meeting place
Lorraine has already made a huge difference! Following a course of Physiotherapy to treat some mobility problems I was advised to take up Pilates to improve my mobility, balance and fitness. In my initial session with Lorraine she listened attentively and then gave me a series of documented exercises tailored to my needs with recommendations on frequency and duration. I wanted to practice my Pilates daily, so instead of a weekly class, I have monthly one-to-one sessions at my home. During these sessions she advises and encourages me on my techniques as well as providing additional, more challenging exercises to improve my mobility and fitness which also make the exercises more stimulating. The exercises have help me regain my balance, core strength and have already improved my mobility after only a few months I cannot recommend her too highly.
Kevin, Specialist PT client
Tuesday morning Pilates with Lorraine at Steyning Leisure Centre is a class that I really look forward to.
The session is extremely popular and is usually fully booked.
I have attended this class since long before the pandemic and, through Lorraine’s guidance and encouragement, have greatly
improved my core and general level of fitness.
Everyone is welcomed to this friendly class and help is given to reassure and challenge individuals.
When I recently hurt my lower back Lorraine personalised my experience by giving me alternative exercises to strengthen and
improve the problem area.
I would thoroughly recommend attending her classes.
Helen, Pilates Steyning leisure centre
Lorraine is a brilliant teacher and Instructor.
She is totally inclusive of every person at whatever level of ability or attainment. Her instruction is clearly explained and movements demonstrated. Her eyes appear to be on every single member of the class with nifty tips to help everyone achieve their potential. Lorraine is always enthusiastic, happy, smiling and with humour and encouragement at all times.
In addition to all the above her knowledge of the inner workings of the human body and the ways in which everything is connected is superb
Gill, Steyning leisure centre pilates
Lorraine's pilates classes are fun and offer lots of opportunities for progression. Lorraine ensures she meets the needs of all that attend. She shares her knowledge by explaining how each move helps to strengthen areas. She gives clear instructions on how to complete moves, how to make it more challenging and how to adapt moves so that they can be completed by everyone. Thank you Lorraine I really enjoy your class.
Bridget, Steyning leisure centre Pilates class
I want to tell you how much I enjoy your pilates classes.
Your explanations and demonstrations of correct movements/exercises in your
classes are so easy to follow. Injuries are avoided in your classes by
your expert attention to detail and ensuring everyone is correctly
participating. You have helped me so much in the rehabilitation of my knee
after the knee replacement procedure, with reducing pain of arthritis and
general wear and tear and with improving posture. Your classes are also
Thank you for all your help and advice, I look forward to working with you in the future.
Patricia, Steyning leisure centre Pilates class
Lorraine is a wonderful inspiration to take more exercise, and stave off reduced mobility, offering gentle weekly guidance (via Zoom at present) to correctly stretch and use my body to recover its flexibility and rebuild my strength to combat years of sitting in front of a screen all day. She is brilliant at motivating me to achieve more, and I am even contemplating walking the South Downs Way, a long held ambition of mine. Keep up the great work, Lorraine!
Toni - Meeting Place Wiston. Online Zoom Pilates and Legs,Bums and tums classes.
I would like to say a big thank you to Lorraine for her Pilates and Legs, Bums and Tums classes via Zoom, during lock down. It would have been easy to not bother with classes, but Lorraine always goes that extra mile.
The classes are really good fun and I look forward to face to face sessions again in the future.
Caroline - Meeting Place, Wiston Pilates classes and online Zoom classes
I have been attending Lorraine’s Pilates classes for 16 years or so. Lorraine is welcoming and friendly and always takes the time to give people alternative options if they find the exercise hard or have an injury. I have always very much enjoyed the classes and would thoroughly recommend Lorraine and her classes to anyone thinking of joining. During Lockdown I have been taking part in Lorraine's online Zoom Pilates and Legs, Bums and Tums class, these too have been very enjoyable.
Nicki - Meeting Place Wiston Pilates class and Online Zoom classes
I would like to say a big 'Thank you' to Lorraine for her Zoom classes for Pilates and LBT which have felt a lifeline of normality and a feeling of community during lockdown.
These classes are varied and always enjoyable.
Many thanks Lorraine, I really recommend your classes and they will be a good combination with face to face classes when they return.
Margaret - Steyning Leisure centre Pilates and Online Zoom Pilates and Legs, Bums and Tums.
I have been doing Pilates with Lorraine for many years now having previously had lower back problems. Her classes are friendly and small in numbers allowing individual attention if required. She is also happy to adapt exercises around any particular issues you may have.
The Zoom classes have allowed me to continue Pilates during lockdown as well doing Legs, bums and Tums which have also provided me with a routine during these difficult times.
Madeline - Tuesday Meeting Place Pilates class and Online Zoom classes
Since going to Pilates with Lorraine over the last few months l am now able to do exercises l could hardly attempt before. I also feel confident in Lorraine's class to try various ways of the same exercise as she is very attentive and helpful making sure you are attempting then correctly. My core strength has improved and l think about my posture more. Thank you MC
M C – Steyning Leisure Centre Pilates class
This is to thank you for your excellent class which has been extremely beneficial to me. As I explained to you yesterday, I broke my arm/shoulder ( right proximal humerus ) 04/12/12. My consultant warned me that movement would be restricted and that there probably wouldn't be any improvement after 18 months. Since starting your class, over a year ago, I am happy to say that there has been continuous improvement in my mobility, far more than I had expected.
Mary French - Friday morning aqua class - Steyning
This is to say how much you are appreciated as a teacher of aqua aerobics at the Steyning Leisure centre, where I attend your classes on Fridays. I have been coming to these classes for 6/7 years and through regular attendance keep myself fitter. Thank you for putting so much effort into the variety of exercises and pushing us hard! It makes an interesting change for me from the gym routine and I feel that it is a very beneficial class to do alongside my Gym circuit, some of the exercises are similar and therefore reinforce the training, which includes some work with the personal trainers doing Viper weights. Good luck with the rest of the year and see you soon!
Felicity Burnet- Friday morning aqua class - Steyning
Thank you Lorraine! I have been attending your class 6 weeks now and really enjoying your class. I read/heard that if you do Pilates 2/3 times a week... You will feel the benefit after 6 weeks and after 12 weeks see the difference!!! Well I am definitely feeling more flex able and toned!! Today I realised that there are so many positions I can do with ease which 6 weeks ago we're impossible to do!!! Thank you Lorraine so much....roll on 12 weeks time!!
Fay Williams, Pilates Steyning Leisure centre
I am a 'senior' and four years ago asked Lorraine to try to get me fit,more supple and generally keep old age at bay for as long as possible,
Well I am older but fitter now than I was ten years ago. Lorraine comes to my home once a week and I love every session. She constantly comes up with fresh ideas to keep the sessions new and interesting always a challenge but with good results. Thank you Lorraine
Janet Ellis, Personal training client, Steyning
I have been attending Lorraine's 60+ Pilates class regularly for over 3 years.
Having had serious back problems in the past I have personally found Lorraine's pilate classes to be very beneficial for me. Lorraine is an excellent teacher very encouraging and helpful, making sure the exercises are carried out correctly and always happy to give individual attention. I would highly recommend Pilates with Lorraine.
Sandra Boorer, Sullington Village Hall
Hi Lorraine, Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy pilates on a Tuesday evening, its help me with my posture through the week as a hairdresser..... engage tummy in, oh yes!!!!
Angela Hardy Small classes Body Matters, Steyning
I have been attending Lorraine’s Over 50 Aqua Fit class at the Pavilions in Horsham for over seven years. Even after this time I still thoroughly enjoy her class. It is never the same & with the variety each week you do not have a chance to get bored. I always come away feeling that I have had a good workout & it is fun. Lorraine always encourages you to work at your level so you do not feel hopeless if you are unable to do any of the exercises. Everyone is very friendly & Lorraine certainly has a happy class.
Marilyn Scrivener, Horsham.
I have been attending Lorraine's 60+ pilates class for over 2years now and have found it really helpful as I suffered with reoccurring back problems for years and was worried about exercising but Lorraine is so encouraging and careful and lets you go at your own pace, she is always cheerful which helps to make exercising an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend trying pilates with Lorraine.
Sandra Boorer, Sullington Pilates classes
I have recently joined Lorraine's Pilates class in Steyning. Lorraine finds out from you what you can do and any problems you have she adapts the exercise for you. She encourages you and makes you feel at ease. The hour goes quickly and I really enjoy the class.
Sue Sullivan- Body Matters, Steyning
I am doing pilates for the first time and really enjoying the sessions with a brilliant instructor. When I return from Dubai in June I’ll be supporting Lorraine in her Breast Cancer event. I also very much enjoy aqua fit, lots of hard work - good !!
