Pilates will work you from the inside out. It’s a mind-body exercise system renowned for its ability to aid in back problems, postnatal rehabilitation, improve core strength and aid in management of other injuries. It will also help to improve your flexibility, balance, co-ordination, strength and muscle tone. As a low impact exercise, it is kind to the joints so is suitable for most people. Modifications can usually be made for those who are pregnant or postnatal.
Mixed Ability Pilates
These classes are suitable for most and cover the fundamentals of Pilates as well as exploring the more challenging variations. If you have any particular injuries, or are pregnant or postnatal, please get in touch so we can assess the suitability of these classes.
This is a step up from the mixed classes. A much more fluid and faster paced class, this one really will challenge you! The movements explored assume that you have no injuries or restriction and have been practicing Pilates with us for quite some time.
A wonder class perfect for those who want a much slower, relaxing pace, with a bit more focus on mobility and stretching. Because of its nature, this class is well suited to those with back issues or who are pregnant, postnatal or beginners. However, everyone can enjoy this class!
If you’ve been attending restorative Pilates and are ready for the next level, or want a class that is more focused on the fundamentals, then this is the class for you. Still focusing on the techniques of the Pilates method, but without the challenge of some of the slightly more challenging variations. Suitable for ongoing back problems or those with some experience of Pilates.
Pilates Lunchtime Blast
A 30-minute, quick-paced class to get you moving during your lunch break.
Reformer on the Mat
In this class we use resistance tubes or bands to replicate some of the movements from the reformer. This aids in stability and control and adds challenge to the mat work. It is a really fun, energetic and challenging class and gives you small peep into what to expect from the reformer!
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Classes
Exercises are performed against the clock and designed to make you work hard and target every muscle in your body. We use your own body, bands, small balls and light weights to add challenge to the exercises. During classes you’re encouraged to work at your own personal ability level and adaptions can be provided where needed.
Low Impact HIIT
These 45-minute classes are low impact in nature although higher impact options can be offered. The use of intervals of varying nature are used each week to help you strengthen and tone and to raise your heart rate. These are very sociable classes, so be prepared for a few laughs! You may be required to have equipment or home substitutes.
Lunch Time HIIT
30 minutes of non-stop exercise, using the principles of HIIT. No equipment is necessary for this class. Be prepared to work hard!
Barre classes combine the challenge of barre work with the principles of Pilates. A fantastic and fun way to work your leg strength, balance and tone muscles, but adding some great core work too. You will need a chair or barre for the class.
Aimed at the younger kids, this is all about play! Each week we have a theme, such as going to the jungle, the farm or exploring dinosaurs. The kids are encouraged to get involved and use their imagination. There are some references to Pilates and general exercises, but the whole class is just based on having fun whilst getting kids moving!
