Beginners

Our beginners classes are designed for those who have little or no previous Pilates experience, or have had a break from Pilates and are looking to build back up again. They have been designed in a progressive eight week course, which allows you to gradually get to grips with the basic exercises and breathing techniques.

The classes will focus on the key principals of Pilates and will help develop your strength, tone, flexibility and improve your posture.

Our instructors teach clinical Pilates – these classes are also ideal for anyone with back pain, musculoskeletal injury and anyone looking to return to an active healthy lifestyle.

You will be closely monitored by our Pilates instructors , all of whom are physiotherapists. This allows them to tailor the exercises to your needs, and adjust any exercises which you are having difficulty with.
You will be introduced to small Pilates equipment throughout the block, which adds variety to the classes and exercises.

You must complete a beginners course before moving onto intermediate/advanced classes.

These classes run in 8 week enrolments.
