Breathing is the first act of life and the last. Our very life depends on it – Joseph Pilates
Pilates matwork classes are suitable for people of all ages and all levels of fitness. There are three levels of class available; Beginner, Essential and Intermediate classes. If you are unsure of which class would be best for you please contact me.
Class sizes are kept small so I can work with everyone to ensure that they are performing the exercises correctly and I can offer modifications to exercises to address individual needs. Beginner classes are limited to a maximum of four clients. Essential and Intermediate classes are limited to a maximum of eight clients.
Group classes are weekly, an hour long and are scheduled in term blocks. When booking a place, you will be booking for a full term. Details of the term dates are shown below. Unfortunately I do not run pay-as-you-go group classes.
These are available as a series of four, one-to-one, private lessons suitable for complete beginners and people who have not practiced Pilates for a while. The course teaches the basic principles, the language and terminology and will allow you to learn how your body works and introduce you to a basic Pilates workout. A postural analysis is included as part of the first lesson. After completing the series of lessons clients can either move into one of the group programmes (subject to availability and suitability), or continue with private tuition.
These classes are run on a one-to-one basis but can be expanded to accommodate small groups of up to four people.
These classes are suitable for people who are relatively new to Pilates or those who prefer to work more slowly and in depth. Each week we will practice the principles whilst introducing new exercises to improve your flexibility, core strength and muscle tone. You will be encouraged to work at your own level and pace with modifications available to make routines more or less challenging.
These classes are only suitable for those who have been practicing Pilates for some time and understand the controlled and precise nature of the method. This class works at a faster pace introducing exercises that require more co-ordination whilst building strength and stamina.
