Feel Good Factor offers one to one Pilates tuition at Carpe Diem Therapy Centre in Staple Hill, Bristol or Classical Pilates Matwork Group Classes in Warmley, Kingswood, Downend and Staple Hill, Bristol. Please see 'Classes' for further information. Amanda is Back4Good trained with a Level 4 back pain specialty qualification in association with Body Control Pilates and BackCare.
Classical Pilates is most known for helping with back pain and strengthening the core. It can also help with other joint pain and manage conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue/ME and MS. It will improve function, mobility, movement, tone muscles, and can improve stamina and posture.
"My method develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit"

I am continuing to collect for the Happy Handbag/Bag scheme. Here is a rough guide to how you can help...
Happy Handbag was initially set up to provide a handbag containing personal sanitary items for a woman in extreme crisis or a homeless state. It has expanded to support children and men in crisis situations in Bristol and the surrounding areas. Ideally we ask for: A handbag for woman with:
tissues - optional
a sanitary product - optional
A wash bag for a man with:
Items for babies can include nappies, wet wipes, rash cream, baby grows, socks/booties/mittens.
Please AVOID razors and aerosol products as the projects can deal with self-harmers or recovering solvent addicts.
Optional additional items include hairbrush/comb, hair products, make up, new underwear, freshly laundered second-hand clothing.
Please don't feel obliged to fill a handbag or wash bag. One or two individual items can be added to our overflow bag that tops up other donations.
