Who we are
Do What Makes you Happy and Healthy
I launched Pilates for Real People online in January 2018 to give my live class members to access classes anywhere and anytime, since this time we have added Strength, HIIT, Freestyle Yoga, tailored stretch sessions and a selection of beautiful Mindfulness classes. As the site grew, I made the decision to rebrand, and Happy & Healthy with Lorraine officially launched Nov 2022
This was always and will always be about making exercise accessible and fun for everyone. Whenever I see your reviews and feedback my heart sings and I will strive to continue our quest for a Happy and Healthy life.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support and friendship.

Happy & Healthy with Lorraine Success Stories…
Eight years ago I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hip. I joined Lorraine’s Pilates class to maintain the level of mobility I had. Six months later I received my hip replacement and the consultant gave me permission to return to the class two months after the operation.
Lorraine’s class makes a huge difference to my physical fitness and therefore my quality of life. She has a friendly, bubbly personality and makes everyone feel welcome. She explains each exercise very clearly and gives a demonstration. She gives us the option of three levels of difficulty so we can work at our own pace. If necessary she will give us an alternative too.
I have been able to build up my core strength and flexibility and can comfortably work at the medium level. I have realised that I benefit from doing 15 minutes in a morning between her sessions. Lorraine’s class has become an essential part of my life for the improvement it gives to my physical well-being. I can certainly recommend it.
I have being taking part in Lorraine’s Pilates for quite some time, both online and in classes.
Pilates with Lorraine is Infectious and contagious NOT in the way we are using those words today but in a happy infectious and contagious kind of way, leaving you wanting more and looking forward to your next practice.
I have found many benefits in regular Pilates workouts increasing my mobility and strength, calming my mind and leaving me in a genuine happy place.
Having access online through Pilates for Real People means I have the chance to practice at a time and place that is convenient.
Lorraine has helped me achieve my goals by always being positive, encouraging, but realistic, always offering an alternative practice when needed. She is always there to offer advice if I have a specific injury or problem that needs addressing.
I cannot recommend Pilates with Lorraine highly enough.
Pilates is definitely for life ???

Not many blokes appear to appreciate what Pilates can do for them. I’m 6’4″ tall, weigh nearly 20stone and am 61 yrs young. I used to get lower back stiffness and have had torn knee ligaments in the past. Since I started Pilates with lovely Lorraine 4 yrs ago all these problems are reduced and I’m much more comfortable on my motorbike over long distances due to my improved core strength and posture. I hated PE at school and get far too sweaty doing anything aerobic so this suits me just fine.
