Georgie, Winchester

The Pilates for the Mind series certificate is a nice way to prove to my children that I still do use my brain.

Nicola BWinchester

I’ve signed up to the Pilates for the Mind talks series. I began with just topics that I thought would be interesting, but I’ve now realised that the talks in which I didn’t think I’d be interested are actually those which are probably the most beneficial and potentially quite intriguing. I thoroughly enjoy the talks and actively find time to attend them in a week that is always ‘busy’. I genuinely feel that my knowledge of the wider world is increasing and expanding, and with it my confidence.

Hilary H.Romsey, Hampshire

The Winchester Pilates for the Mind series has fed my desire to be in contact with the outside world, discuss issues with others, and opened my interest into topics I would not have looked into before. Every talk has been interesting and enlightening.


I can’t thank Pondero and Ronnie enough for the stimulating, friendly, professional and fascinating talks. I have grown in confidence in my ability and have returned to study in London for a career change.


LOVED this morning’s talk – great brain stretching scientific stuff!

I really benefitted from the Return to Work workshop and have already passed on details to friends who are in a similar position.


Many thanks for a thoroughly productive, positive and insightful session yesterday. I found it very rewarding.


Whilst it would be easy to fall back into similar types of work, the workshop highlighted to me that this is a fantastic opportunity to do something different and perhaps more rewarding.


Looking after a young family can be all consuming and independent views on different subjects helped me to put important issues into perspective.
