Pilates was developed in the 1920’s by German born, Joseph Pilates. His aim to get the body moving as one in a fluid, co-ordinated manor using the breath and movement. Based around his method are the 6 Pilates principles: Breath, Concentration, Control, Precision, Centre and Flow. These principles are what all classes are based on.
As an exercise form Pilates is low impact and non- stressful to the body. By using controlled movements, the body can develop strength, flexibility and tone which is why it can be very beneficial to those with injuries, whilst providing even the fittest with a challenge.
During classes I will encourage you to work at your own personal ability level and provide adaptions where needed. I don’t believe in excluding people from classes if they have certain needs. I would rather have them in class than not have any help at all. For certain needs an initial one-to-one session may be advised to help you prepare for the class and to go through any modifications needed.
“Sian is a fantastic Pilates instructor, she adapts every class to the needs of the group and is incredibly knowledgeable. Sian has taught me a lot about my body and technique. As well as being a challenge, the classes are always good fun too.” Victoria
The studio also hosts a reformer, full trapeze table/Cadillac and spine corrector, ensuring you can get the very best from your private sessions of Pilates. These are a great way to really focus on how to connect to your body and the movements. Because of the springs and positions that can be adopted on the apparatus, it allows time and focus when executing the movements, giving you the knowledge and precision of the movements to transfer to the mat
