Classical Pilates

‘I’m a Pilates person. It’s great. I had a hip problem. I had a chronic back, a pinched nerve and a hip problem and it’s completely solved all of it. I love it. It makes me feel like I’m taller.” Jennifer Aniston

"This is the first exercise class i've ever been to where you see the same people every time, block after block. I think the fact that people keep going is evidence that they really feel the difference it's making for them. I always feel so much better after the class, look forward to the next one, and am gutted when I have to miss it! " Intermediate class participant

"Pilates has had a great positive effect on me! Doing the class each week makes me feel great. As I have back problems I find the Pilates has helped with that issue. I really miss the class when I can't make it! Definitely recommend!" - Intermediate class participant

Aims of class:
  • Deepen understanding the Pilates method of exercise
  • Strengthen the core and work towards flatter abs, a longer, leaner body
    • Gain greater body awareness & understanding
  • Improve posture & core strength supporting the spine
  • Increase flexibility & improve overall muscle tone

Intermediate level - at least one term of General (Foundation) level Pilates as this is a challenging class that will work your core and keep going at a fast pace. Strengthen and lengthen your entire body and refresh your mind.

Friday
* 9.30 - 10.25am (All levels) Mixed Ability
Starts 2nd June, 6 week block. Book online

This class moves at a steady pace with lots of breaking down of the moves to find a deeper understanding of the body and the Pilates method.

Drop ins are sometimes available apart from week 1 - please text on the day to find out if there is space available. Drop in class costs £6.

If you have any back / health problems that might affect your ability to do Pilates please contact me first to arrange a 1 - 2 - 1 session before joining a group class - you should also check with your doctor / physio. Pilates is great for preventing back pain by developing a strong core but if you do have back / neck / shoulder problems or other issues it is not recommended that you should go straight into a group class as some exercises will need to be modified.

If you would like to go straight into the more challenging intermediate class and have done a lot of similar exercise you can attend a 1-2-1 class to explain the basics of the exercises so that you can go straight into the faster moving series.
