Classes

Pilates is a unique exercise programme tailored to suit individual clients. It corrects alignment and muscle recruitment patterns by working on the deep architectural structure of the body. Core stability is achieved, and then maintained, through increasingly complex movement sequences. Specific problem-areas can be targeted by an exercise, but always in relation to the rest of one's body.

Improvements in flexibility, stamina and posture can lead to an increased sense of wellbeing. Pilates not only suits beginners and those unused to regular exercise, but it is part of the training regime of many athletes, including the gold - medal winning GB’s rowing four.

Lessons include Matwork and Reformer in one to one sessions or in small groups of two-to-three people - to be mutually agreed.

Matwork

Matwork is taught working on floor mats and using your own body to create the necessary resistance to improve strength and flexibility.

Reformer

The Reformer is a machine that can facilitate many Pilates exercises safely and effectively by offering assistance and resistance. The resistance of the springs is used to increase individual strength and flexibility, and allows any misalignments to be spotted and corrected.
