Pilates

As a result of regular Pilates your posture will change and you will move more efficiently. You will achieve a strong core, develop longer, leaner muscles and improve your overall sense of well-being. And if you are a sports enthusiast, Pilates will also help improve your game.

Pilates was created by the visionary Joseph Pilates as a complete strengthening system for the body. Pilates teaches the body how to move more effectively and recruit muscles at the right time, for the right job and as efficiently as possible. Pilates is suitable for everyone and is often recommended by physiotherapists as a reliable way of creating balanced strength in the body and resolving muscular strains caused by our modern lifestyles.

We have a maximum of 12 students in any Pilates class as we feel that this is the best way to give every student the attention they deserve. All the equipment you need is provided and the studio is temperature and airflow controlled, clean and inviting.

Pilates Foundations

Pilates Foundation classes are for beginners and those who are returning to Pilates after a break who would like to refresh their muscle memory.

It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise.

Pilates reshapes the body by targeting and strengthening core muscles which are vital for reducing back pain, releases tension and improves posture and flexibility, returning the body to its natural alignment. It avoids the muscle and ligament damage sometimes associated with other fitness regimes and consequently plays a key role in many injury and rehabilitation programmes.
