Each move is based on a fundamental level exercise which will suit the beginner, with progressions offered to suit those more experienced or abled. Pilates classes are a form of resistance training so in addition to body weight, bands will be introduced to add variety, intensity or to support moves. All equipment is provided. Those new to Pilates are able to join these sessions but will be asked to come along to the first class a little bit earlier to talk through some of the Pilates principles.
For complete beginners or those preferring to stick with fundamental mat-work moves. Learn how to engage your core, set up and engage the Pilates breathing technique.
Modifications and adaptations are offered to allow individual needs to be catered for. This course is ideal for those wanting to get to grips with fundamental Pilates or those in need of rehabilitation following clearance from a Physio or GP.
For those wanting to improve sports performance these classes focus on increasing stability in the joints specific to exercise from the ankles up to the shoulders. Muscular imbalances around the spine, hips and shoulders can cause inefficient movement patterns and increase the chance of injury and reduce performance. These classes are ideal for those wanting to avoid injury and improve power output. Classes will be planned to develop strength and flexibility relevant particularly to running, swimming and cycling. Fundamental moves are crucially still part of these sessions but more challenges are incorporated.
Sometimes a 1 to 1 session is preferable for a variety of reasons. I can come to your home or work place and tailor a session to suit your needs at a time that suits you. Small private classes work on the basis of 2 - 6 people wanting to get together for regular classes at their own venue. Small group sessions with friends or colleagues can be great value and allow more flexibility as sessions can be made on a weekly basis.
1-2 people £45
3 - 4 people £55

For those who have done at least 6 - 12 weeks of Pilates and want to work towards intermediate/advanced moves. Still based on the fundamental moves, this class will take the Pilates exercises up to a more demanding level as well as include some of those harder intermediate/advanced moves. This is a very popular session so there may be a waiting time to join.
A library of videos from short 8-10 minute workouts to 50 minute full body workouts.
The majority of videos are suitable for all, however, there are specific videos for beginners, ante/prenatal through to intermediate and those seeking sports performance.
Depending on how much time you have you can mix and match 2 or 3 short workouts or get stuck into a full 50 minute session.
