Pilates is an exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Based on an anatomical understanding of the body's muscular and skeletal systems, the Pilates teacher creates a comprehensive exercise programme for the client.
Classes will focus on specific areas whilst using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise.
When you walk into a pilates class, focus your mind completely on your body in order to learn how to re-educate your muscles to move better. Be prepared to work hard and enjoy the wonderful benefits pilates has to offer. We have a wide range of classes available from back care, injury rehabilitation, pre and postnatal to advanced level classes which all aim to help you improve your posture, core strength, flexibility and coordination.

We have added some pay as you go classes for people who are unable to commit to the regular classes so there is a time and option for everyone.
We have a range of classes with specific focusses
Myofascial release trigger point Pilates
Fascia is the connective tissue that holds our body together. It's designed to move our bodies and allow the healthy function of our systems.
Fascia is highly sensitive and can be affected by physical and emotional trauma, digestive problems, headaches, arthritis; including osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Anything that causes bodily changes can affect the fascia.
Daily movement is vital for fascia health. Myofascial release class is designed to release you facially from the inside, undoing muscular restrictions and easing chronic pain conditions. This class is for all abilities, it is a gentle approach using pilates principles to create a full-body relaxation and unwinding from stored up tensions.
Pelvic floor Pilates
The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles at the base of the pelvis. They support the organs above them, control when urine and solid waste pass, provide sexual tone and help to keep the back and pelvis stable.
They are voluntary muscles and should do as they are told. Just like a hand, they can be directed to squeeze and hold.
Many adverts are promoting products that lead us to believe that pelvic floor dysfunction is normal; this is NOT the case.
Pelvic Floor Pilates is a class designed to specifically help improve the function of your pelvic floor. This class is for any age and any gender regardless of any prior issues, although if you have specific issues please discuss this with the instructor in your induction
Suitable for anyone after 14 weeks of pregnancy, you should gain consent from your GP/midwife/Health visitor that you are safe to do exercise. This class will focus on maintaining mobility and building strength throughout the stages of your pregnancy
