Brighton Pilates Testimonials


Inspired by Ellie

'If only I lived in Brighton I would be there for every class and event I could manage. Those times I have been able to attend classes I am always inspired by Ellie to keep up with classes elsewhere, trouble is they always fall short of Ellie’s attention to detail and knowledge of the best way to get the most out of the class. 

I have been to 2 of Ellie and Holly’s retreats, one in Morocco and the other in South Africa and I’m so excited to hear that they are to be restarted….. I will be there if at all possible and recommend you join us, its a wonderful, relaxing learning experience.'

HIT Pilates - Great Class

'I tried out the HIT Pilates and as usual, Brighton Pilates has come up with the goods. A great class, loads of fun and good exercise, and to top it all, a fab venue. Well done Ellie Priest. I'll be back.'

HIT Classes are Amazing

'After 15 years of excellent pilates teachers I still felt I was in a bit of a rut. This changed when I came to Ellie's classes! Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious and I have fun and feel challenged. In particular her HIT classes are amazing. To start with I really felt that they were a stretch too far for a 68 year old but she encouraged me to carry on. Now, despite finding them really tough, I can see an improvement in my stamina and I know that the cardio work is really important. As I say, HIT can be tough but no pain no gain and boy do you feel good when you've done it.'

Passionate Pilates Teacher

I have back and shoulder issues and I always leave Ellies class I feeling much better and more mobile! Thank you Ellie xx'

Fully Recommend Ellie and Brighton Pilates

'I'm not very confident in my fitness level. And the thought of a group Pilates class terrified me. But Ellie at Brighton Pilates teaches her class so that you feel comfortable and confident no matter what level of fitness you have. Ellie helped me fall in love with Pilates and the healthy eating and fitness easily followed. And I no longer dread the word 'hundreds'. I fully recommend Ellie and Brighton Pilates.'

- Rachel Sipes

Superb Teacher

'Ellie is a superb teacher. She clears spends a lot of time planning her classes and she is great at demonstrating the moves perfectly. She has an amazing memory and will remember various injuries and ensures there are alternative moves if needed. Outside of the classroom she is a total inspiration providing advice, recipes, health tips etc on a regular basis. Can't recommend her high enough.'

- Jo Davies

Inspirational Pilates Coach

'Ellie is a kind, supportive and inspirational Pilates coach. The classes are good for all ages and abilities from young gym bunnies who run marathons to rather elderly, achy people like me!'

Paula Jones

Best Pilates Teacher Around!

'Ellie is far and away the best Pilates teacher around! Having attended her classes for a few years now it's obvious she's spends a lot of time planning her lessons in advance, all the movements flow together smoothly, she is innovative, motivational and her classes never get boring as no two are the same :)'

-Clare Newman

Courses are well designed and varied

'I can't praise Ellie at Brighton Pilates high enough. The courses are well designed and varied. Ellie always takes care in watching that the Pilates exercises are being done correctly and will always offer adjustments to an exercise. I had a knee replacement a few years ago and since doing Pilates with Ellie has really helped my posture and flexibility in my knee. Ellie is so enthusiastic and her classes are a lot of fun too. Best teacher I have had and it has made such a difference.'

- Kelly Nicholls

Recommend Ellie's Classes to Anyone

'I have been doing Pilates with Ellie for over 3 years now. It has improved my core strength and I no longer suffer from the back pain that I used to. Ellie has also taught me throughout my recent pregnancy which I found so helpful. She adapted the moves in the class to suit the different stages of pregnancy I was at. It was very reassuring to have such an experienced and knowledgeable tutor during this period and now I've had my baby I'm back in class again with the aim of getting my stomach tone back to what it was before pregnancy! I would really recommend Ellie's classes to anyone who is thinking of doing Pilates.'
