Pilates is a mind body conditioning exercise program originated by Joseph Pilates. It focuses attention on core postural muscles that help keep the human body balanced and provide support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and of alignment of the spine, and strengthen the deep torso and abdominal muscles.
This is achieved through eight main principles; concentration, centring, breathing, isolation, routine, precision, control and flowing movement.
Pilates suits all ages and fitness levels and is particularly beneficial for those with back pain, poor postures, neurological conditions, sports injuries, arthritis, stress related illness and before and after pregnancy.
We offer a range of Pilates classes to suit your goal and requirements. This ranges from small group mat-based classes to a studio circuit class utilising our specialised large equipment such as the reformers.
To ensure everyone has the best possible start both to maximise enjoyment and effectiveness, we provided an initial 1-to-1 session with one of our Pilates Physiotherapists. This gives you the opportunity also to discuss any goals or concerns you may have prior to embarking on a class. An introductory package including the individual session plus 2 classes makes getting started easy.
Bespoke 1-to-1 up to 1-to-4 sessions can also be arranged by appointment. This can include the large equipment.
