Online Testimonials

“Stretchworks online was a life saver over lockdown, and is a life enhancer still. Alison keeps you safe but literally stretches you. I have a weak back after a break 30 years ago but her classes have kept me mobile and active. And ,as important, the classes are inclusive , uplifting and supportive so good for mental well being too”.

Stevie Spring, Chairman British Council and Mind.   

“I have been attending Alison’s Stretchworks classes for years, firstly with face to face sessions. However as my work schedule increased, the online sessions that Alison offers have become invaluable. I’m not the greatest with laptop technical glitches, and I was convinced I actually had no abdominal muscles, but despite these challenges, the online classes have worked brilliantly. Alison is a brilliant teacher, always pushing you just that little bit further. Her classes are welcoming, warm and inclusive. I always feel better for them, and my recurrent niggling lower back problems are much less frequent. My body is stronger than when I started, so I would recommend Stretchworks classes very highly indeed”.


“I love the convenience of online classes but Alison’s Stretchworks classes take it onto a completely different level. It’s like having a private one-to-one with her even though others are attending the class. She makes sure we are all lined up with the camera angle so we can work side by side as she gently guides and supports our movements. I have really benefited from these classes and no longer need to see my physiotherapist who also confirmed the benefits of Stretchworks”.


“I have been enjoying Alison’s classes for more than a decade but never have they been more valued than in the time of Covid! She has been a real support throughout the last two years and a lifeline for me and I’m sure many others. Her classes provide a comprehensive and thorough stretch out and have kept me supple and moving. I can’t recommend Alison’s approach and her classes enough. She always goes the extra mile for her students”.


“I have been doing Alison’s class for about a year and as an older person, I have found it extremely helpful for improving flexibility and helping with a stiff back. Alison is great at encouraging everyone and is able to offer clear individual feedback about all the exercises despite being online. I would highly recommend her class to all”.
