Sumi has been instrumental in helping me move from one-on-one rehab sessions to being able to participate in group classes. I've been impressed by her ability to cater to all the needs of individuals in the class, regardless of the injuries or limitations they may have - with minimal fuss and maximum results. She's particularly mindful of both the physical and mental well-being of all the class members, which is very important for working to regain function after surgery injury, or for those dealing with ongoing chronic problems. I've found Sumi's classes inclusive, motivating and effective. As such, I highly recommend Sumi as a Clinical Pilates instructor - not only for people recovering from injury, but also for people wanting an enjoyable class that improves strength, coordination and flexibility.

10 years ago I was in a serious road accident which not only affected my physical abilities but also my short term memory. I spent many hours with professionals working at rehabilitating from the accident and until I met Sumi thought I had reached the furthest I would with my progress. 3 years ago I joined Sumi's Clinical Pilates class. The personal care, her understanding of my limitations and the way she was able to cater for my specific needs accelerated my rehabilitation and there's no doubt I'm in a better place now than prior to joining Sumi's classes. Sumi has now followed her dreams to go and live in the Blue Mountains, a good enough reason for her to consider holding a retreat for her Sydney class to take part in. Until then, good luck Sumi!
There have been a few people who've been total superhero-style amazing on my post back surgery journey. Sumi is one of those people. She coached me in Clinical Pilates to strengthen my core and assist my recovery. The others in my class were also a great support, each of them with their own physical challenges from accidents and injuries. I won't forget this one, a huge hearty thank you from me. I am grateful for all of your support.

I have been been seeing Sumi for remedial massage since 2014 and every step of the way has been a joy. As a professional musician I have massage mostly for postural management of my body affected by muscle tension and joint limitations due to repetitive movement and long hours with my instrument. I always feel comfortable and relaxed with Sumi. She clearly explains what she is working on and why, which is particularly important for me to understand. She has always been mindful of my professional goals and in turn considers my ongoing care needs between appointments. Her skill, beautiful manner and gentle presence is what keeps me coming back to her. I would recommend Sumi to everyone!
In August I worked and participated on Sumi's Fill Your Cup Day Retreat. I found this a very lovely a nurturing retreat. The different topics covered through the day provided a variety of approaches to developing a deeper level of self care practice. The atmosphere and location supported this very well. It felt like a good and timely investment in my health and wellbeing, and I would recommend this to anyone who needs to 'press pause' and recharge. Thank you Sumi for making this beautiful day come together!
I attended the Fill Your Cup Day Retreat run by Sumi and my cup was seriously full by the end of the day. Sumi is professional, warm, incredibly organised and created a day that perfectly held the space for us all to relax and rejuvenate. I can't wait to come back!

I received a massage from Sumi last week. I found that she held a really nice space. I felt welcome, nurtured and comfortable with her. As a health care professional myself, it was clear that Sumi has a really good depth of knowledge with regard to anatomy and this in addition to her caring nature made for a great experience. Would definitely recommend.
I participated in Project You via Skype as a one to one session. Sumi has the innate ability to see through the mask, move past the outside story and reach into the centre of your being. When working with Sumi you just have the overwhelming sense of 'she really gets me'. It is a very freeing experience.
Thank you so much for yesterdays treatment Sumi. The massage has made me feel so much better already. You are a wealth of knowledge to pinpoint my problem areas. 10/10.
Sumi is an expert in efficient movement and she is a great masseuse! Her Clinical Pilates classes have been great and I have more awareness of my core in my daily life and sport
Sumi's classes have been enlightening and have given me more awareness of my core. The classes are suited for all ages groups and her style of teaching is easy to follow. Highly recommend Sumi's Pilates classes.
