What people are saying

rocks“Lindsey’s knowledge of Pilates, anatomy, and body mechanics, combined with her deep understanding of our natural inclination to movement, confirm her as an excellent teacher for the novice and those more experienced. Generous with her knowledge, caring and sensitive to individual needs, and always encouraging in her guidance. Working with Lindsey is always a positive and transformative experience”. – Julie Scriver Creative Director, Goose Lane Editions

“What can I say about Lindsey Laidlaw and Pilates other than I hold Lindsey and Pilates responsible for my good health!  Lindsey’s knowledge, her abilities as a teacher, her excellent communication skills and her genuine sensitivity and kindness to her clients combine to make her a very effective instructor/facilitator/therapist. I have been studying pilates with Lindsey since January, 1997. During this time, I have gained incredible strength and balance. I feel pilates is very complex rather than difficult; it is relaxing yet intense; it is good for your body and also for your soul.”- Ruth Holmes, Retired Teacher

“I have been a client of Lindsey’s for 4 years. I started with Lindsey after I had an artificial disc replacement (ADR) in my lower back, this was performed in Germany and as part of their rehab, core strengthening was the first approach right out of surgery. My take away rehab consisted of a number of core strengthening exercises and at that time I was not familiar with Pilates.  Upon my return to Canada, my wife suggested I meet Lindsey Laidlaw and try Pilates. Right away I made the connection with Pilates, as it was exactly what the German physiotherapists were prescribing. I must admit, Lindsey has changed my life. With Lindsey’s experience and ability to adapt exercises to fit my needs, I have progressively improved with flexibility and core strength. I realized if you invest in your own health, you will reap the benefits of the same. Lindsey is amazing and I recommend you seek her out”. -Stephen Banks, age 33

“I have been attending Pilates mat classes with Lindsey since 2000. The classes are always small allowing Lindsey to give us individual attention. It is her attention to detail and ability to modify the exercise to the needs of the student that I love. My increased range of motion, strength and balance are definitely the result of these classes. Thanks Lindsey”  – Miriam Sifton.

Marie M: “Hello Lindsey, Loved your class on Friday. Such a pleasure to see your beautiful smiling face again. Felt so good afterwards, noticed Saturday morning pelvis not as tilted (secondary to scoliosis) as well as not as much tightness in my lower back and hip. REVITALIZING  would be the word I use to describe the effects of the Love My Body classes. My experience so far has been OUTSTANDINGThank you so much. Namaste.”

REIKI Distance Healing: 

“Never underestimate the power of remote energetic healing. Lindsey has an amazing gift of knowing just what a person needs to lift them up. My body, mind, and spirit feel at peace and there is an inner calm that quiets the physical and/or emotional pain when I have had Lindsey do remote energy healing work on me. It’s amazing that she can do this from such a far distance. If you need support, are feeling “off”, or experiencing “dis-ease”…Lindsey can help! I’m so grateful to have such an amazing friend, associate, and healer in my life. Thank you Lindsey! You have helped me get through so many things with much more ease and confidence.” Amy Maynard Buckles Registered Massage Therapist

VOILA session: “Thank you for this Lindsey! I don’t fully understand how Voila works but it really is effective. I had pulled my back a couple of weeks ago and was quite sore. To get from sitting to standing I was placing my hands on my thighs and pushing to get up and it was really sore. Bending down to put my foot into my shoe and to lace up my shoes was really difficult and sore. I live in BC and was telling Lindsey about this and she offered to do a distance Voila treatment. Well, a minute or two later I stood up and didn’t use my hands to push myself up, and when bent forward and lifted my foot into my shoe I did it without pain, only some discomfort. Lindsey had contacted me a short time later to say she had done the treatment right after we had talked. It really is amazing and it works. I did do some easy stretches as she suggested and in a couple of days my back was back to normal. Thank You Lindsey and thank you Voila!” – Heather L Retired RN BScN

“Your clients are lucky to have you on their case, balancing their structure, improving their lives. Since our first class together learning Voila I knew you would take the work seriously and practice it with diligence”. – Terry Arden Certified Voila Practitioner

Donna D – When you place a wrinkled,  scrunched-up garment on the ironing board and press it smooth restoring it to its intended shapeliness, that, my dear Lindsey, is the genius of Yamuna Body Rolling! Walking on air today.
