Feel Good Factor - helping you feel better

Amanda Staples: Instructor and Therapist (CNHC registered)

Matwork Pilates, Remedial Massage, Bodywork and Clinical Hypnotherapy


Feel Good Factor offers one to one Pilates in Downend or Warmley, Bristol and Classical-style Pilates Matwork Classes in Warmley, Downend and Staple Hill. Please see 'Classes' for further information. 

 I am a Level 4 back pain Specialty Instructor.

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 approach to all of my work is to help you be the best you can be in your body. 

My goal with Pilates and complementary therapies is to help improve overall function. This might be mobility or postural, it might be physical or mental.

Current Class Spaces:

Monday 6.45pm, Kingswood

Tuesday 6.15pm, Staple Hill

All other classes are full but waiting lists run and you are welcome to do a 

trial class with us to see if we are a fit when space comes up, or you can do 

a one to one with me for personal bespoke tuition.


We are back to normal service for 2022. 

Dates for the first few blocks are listed under Classes.

 *Class fees are £49 per six week block. Pay as you go option is not available. Dates and venues are on the Classes page. Payment is required in advance per intake and places cannot be held without it. It is possible to do a trial class for £10 if you are unsure and cannot afford a one to one session.*

I conduct one to one sessions at Downend Assembly Hall, Bristol which cost £35 for an hour. These sessions are specifically tailored to you, your needs and goals.

 Despite the restrictions being lifted, the classes will stay at reduced capacity until I deem it safe to increase numbers, regardless of what Boris says. Updates will be posted here and on Facebook @feelgoodfactorbristol.

All venues are risk assessed weekly by me. Whichever venue you attend it will be safe.
