Pilates focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, muscle-strength, flexibility and posture. It was created by German-born Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s and incorporates elements of yoga, martial arts and Western forms of exercise.
We offer mat classes taught by experienced teachers for all levels; from beginners’ courses to advanced classes as well as private 1-2-1 sessions at the studio.
- Beginners We run regular beginners courses which are designed for those new to Pilates or those with injuries or specific needs where a small group would be beneficial. We will slowly introduce you to the foundation principles, focusing on combining basic movements with your breath and allowing time to concentrate on learning how to engage your core muscles.
- Open Level Aimed at those looking to develop a deeper awareness of the core muscles, increase flexibility and develop more control within each movement. Some Pilates experience could be beneficial though a good fitness level is suitable. Perfect for those looking to further their Pilates knowledge and find balance between mind and body. These classes will focus on posture and alignment and for those working with injuries, modifications to exercises will always be offered.
- Experienced Suitable for those with good levels of core strength, flexibility and technique. You will be looking to challenge your practice, whilst wanting to develop more of a flow and precision within your movements.
