Great news! Classes are now back in the studio. However, you can be assured that all social distancing guidelines and recommended Covid precautions will be kept in place indefinitely to ensure everyone feels comfortable and safe.  Classes will be kept small to allow for plenty of space, and studios will be kept well ventilated.

Options will also remain for anyone that would prefer to stay online for the foreseeable future.

Lets keep moving and keep connected!

Beginner

Ideal for those who have never tried Pilates before or for anyone that would like to re-visit the foundations of the practice and work on improving technique and form.  We will explore the fundamental exercises that form the building blocks of many of the classic Pilates repertoire. We’ll be exploring breathing patterns, good posture and alignment, co-ordination of movement, and improving the stability and mobility of all the joints in the body.

 

If you have always wanted to know what Pilates is all about, come and give this class a go. The class is kept small to allow each individual to receive personal support and attention throughout the class, allowing for greater understanding of the exercises and a greater knowledge of the Pilates method in general. 

 

Mixed Ability

Gentle but effective full body conditioning class based on Body Control Pilates principles to improve your strength and flexibility, posture, coordination and overall freedom of movement.

These classes are suitable for all abilities as the exercises can be modified for any experience level, providing as much of a challenge as your body needs.  

The focus of the classes will be on creating a sense of balance within the body. We will look at restoring good alignment through our movement, strengthening the deep muscles within the body, and developing core strength to improve stability and posture.

Improvers

Perfect for those with some previous experience of Pilates who are looking to focus in on technique and form whilst enjoying an hour of full body conditioning.  This class will begin to introduce a few of the more intermediate exercises,  building up from the basic exercises we continue to reinforce the fundamentals of Pilates whilst adding more strength and endurance based exercises.

 

We will work towards further improving stability and mobility in the joints, developing strength in the core and finding greater freedom of movement throughout the body.

 

Kinetic Flow

 

For the movement lovers out there, this fast paced class will take you through a sequence of strength and mobility exercises, linking them together and playing with transitions and momentum in order to create a continuous movement flow.  These classes are inspired by the Pilates principles of control, precision and flow and has freedom of movement at its core.

This class is suitable for those with some experience of Pilates or other form of movement practice.

Intermediate

 

A dynamic and challenging intermediate level class for those with previous experience of Pilates. With a strong emphasis on movement technique, we will work on core strength, centring, flexibility as well as the quality and control of your movement.   We will explore the more classical exercises within the Pilates method whilst still being open to tailoring and modifying the exercises to suit the individuals in the class.

 

Restorative Pilates

A more gentle Pilates class focusing on breath, posture and restoring balance within the body.  This class moves at a slightly slower pace and will aim to deepen your connection with your body whilst honing in on the ABC's of Pilates - alignment, breath and centring. 

Serving as a mid week movement break from the stresses of the week, we will work through movements and stretches that help to offset the hours spent doing the repetitive movements that make up our week, whether that be sitting, standing, lifting, driving or anything else that might be a regular part of your day!

These classes are also ideal for those recovering from injuries, or for anyone returning to exercise after a period of time away.  Also suitable for pregnant and postnatal clients (although I may ask you to attend a 1:1 session with me first if you have not taken a class with me before).
