Pilates Instruction

Lisa Sayers is a qualified STOTT Matwork and Reformer Pilate’s instructor specialising in corrective exercise, management of back pain, disease, injury, pre- and postnatal and seniors.

Pilates is a mind body technique which is designed to improve spine and joint alignment with the additional benefit of improving core stability and strength. I teach Stott Pilates exercise on a one-to-one or in a small group setting from my well-equipped Pilates studio in central Henley-on-Thames, Drummond Physiotherapy Clinic in Maidenhead (http://drummondclinic.co.uk/) and also teach Pilates in Reading, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.

I teach Matwork, use small equipment and the state-of-the-art V2 max reformer in my classes. I have completed the Stott Pilates injuries and special populations course which equips me to teach people with back pain, spinal injuries and disease, disc problems, neurological and joint disease, post-surgery and ante- and postnatal classes.

I teach Pilates to help improve posture, core stability, develop strength, tone muscles and aid recovery from injury and disease. I aim to make my classes fun, varied and goal orientated.



I have been seeing Lisa about a year and she has truly transformed me!

After a back operation and no exercise for five years I was nervous about getting back into things and causing damage. Lisa's amazing knowledge of the body combined with interesting and varied work-out sessions has meant I have progressed dramatically and now feel like a 39 year-old man should do!


I am a 68 year old woman with an eight-year history of hip and back problems which culminated in sciatica and moderate stenosis (narrowing of the nerve channel).

Physiotherapy had no lasting effect and it was far from plain that an operation would have the desired result. Lisa Sayers was the last throw of the dice to try and correct what had become a very debilitating condition. It worked!

I have gone to see her, when possible, twice a week and could probably cut this down if I were more diligent about exercises at home. I have no pain and stand much straighter. The lesson I take away from this is: it’s never too late to try and put things right with exercise, especially if you go to Lisa.


I have been training with Lisa for one and a half years and it has been inspirational and enjoyable.

I have trouble with my lower back and Lisa was always sure to modify exercises and be mindful of not aggravating old injuries. I feel fit, strong and finally comfortable in my own body.

What made Lisa stand out from the rest was her absolute dedication to her job. Fitness training is a clearly a vocation for Lisa as she is constantly going to conferences or training courses to gain more knowledge; she is absolutely committed to every one of her numerous clients. Working with her has given me new insight and motivation – she provided me with motivation to stay in shape and a programme I have successfully continued with on my own, both comfortably and effectively. When the going gets rough, Lisa makes me laugh, which keeps me committed to working out – who knew that a killer exercise routine could not only get the job done, but also be FUN!
