ABOUT PILATES

Pilates is suitable for anyone who would like to improve posture, core strength, and flexibility.  Pilates will give you energy, improve your everyday movement and function, and is great fun and focused way to work out.

If you practise Pilates with us we aim to help you become more embodied and live your life free from pain allowing you the freedom to do the activities you want to do in your life. Pilates is also a fantastic for injury prevention and rehabilitation so it’s always there for you, no matter what your current situation.

Our studio boasts a world-class teaching team run by Director Claire Sparrow who is a Second Generation Pilates teacher and Mentor. Our wealth or experience and knowledge positions us as a leading Pilates studio with full apparatus to give you the best possible Pilates experience.

Many of our teachers have cured their own health issues with Pilates and gone on to teach because of the profound affect it had on them.

Pilates can help with symptoms of depression and anxiety because it is a mindful practice where you connect with your physical  body and breath.

CLASSES

We advise everyone to have a 45 Minute Introduction to Pilates but it is not compulsory. A 1-2-1  session will orientate you to the Pilates equipment as we screen you and guide you to the most beneficial class for you. This is very important if you have a health condition or are recovering from an injury. If you are fit and well you can book onto any beginner or mixed level class.

Start with a 121 if:

If you have had a major surgery e.g.  Joint replacement 

have been recommended Pilates by a health care professional

Have a health condition such as osteoporosis, herniated disc etc

Yes, we run a range of beginner-friendly classes. As a beginner with no prior health conditions such as osteoporosis or an injury, you can also join any beginner or mixed-level class.

You can view our timetable here and each class description tells you the level of the class.
