Life has never been dull since meeting Rachel, as a person her enthusiasm for life is infectious, as an instructor her ability to inspire is second to none and as the creator of our little friend Connor she enthrals us with a wealth of wonderful stories.
Our children are our greatest gift, and our greatest gift back to our children is the gift of health. By following Connor through his very busy day going to school, playing with his friends and exploring his forest - our children will have a fun filled activity session that will also stimulate the mind.
Rachel's years of dance, teaching and creative work have lead us to this wonderful character - follow Connor and conquer your inactivity!
Rachel and Connor are truly an inspiration to our next generation.
I'm a yoga teacher rather than a teacher of pilates about which I know comparatively little. I do know however, that story is a fantastic medium for working with young children and that the author Rachel Lloyd has a dance background and is a Pilates Master Trainer who is clearly passionate about its practice. Her positivity and what she says in the helpful notes at the back resonate with me completely. -- Jill R. Bennett * Red Reading Hub, Jillrbennet's Reviews of Children's Books *
