  • Boosted Metabolism By incorporating weights into your Pilates routine, you’ll increase muscle mass and ramp up your metabolism.

Exercising

What to Expect:

  • Dynamic Workouts:

Each class features a variety of exercises that target every muscle group, keeping you engaged and challenged. We will work in standing, seated and on the mat.

  • Expert Instructors

Our experienced instructors provide personalised guidance and modifications to suit your fitness level and goals.

  • Supportive Environment

Join a community of like-minded individuals who motivate and support each other in achieving their fitness aspirations.

 

Our sessions are based on the original 34 Pilates mat work exercises but with modifications to suit all levels- we start by finding a stable base and then layer in options working with precision and control.

 

A typical class starts with a standing preparation phase- we get the body loosened off and then work in standing or on chairs before oging down to the mat. We work lying on our backs, fronts, sides, in all 4’s and kneeling- there are lots of options for anyone who can’t work in a particular position for whatever reason.

 

We also add in extra stretching for those problem areas such as hamstrings (back of the legs) and hip flexors (front of the hip), necks and shoulders.

 

We include mobility work for our major joints particularly the spinal column working in all planes of motion to ensure our bodies move well.

 

There is of course lots of core and abdominal work (this includes pelvic floor too).

 

It is mixed ability group so beginners you would stay with the lower levels and get used to the control and movement of the exercises before progressing onto the higher levels as they get stronger.

 Equipment:

  • You will need a mat: We recommend a padded mat 10-15mm thick.
    If you have a thinner mat then a towel can improve comfort.

  • You will also need some light weights-Water bottles can also work well as weights.

  • A cushion helps neck alignment

 

All are welcome in this class whether you are living with long term conditions or are a beginner and want to build up gradually.

No experience needed.
