PILATES MAT CLASSES
OUR MAT PILATES CLASSES ARE DIFFERENT. RELIEVING YOU OF THOSE DAILY ACHES AND PAINS, OUR PILATES WILL LEAVE YOU FEELING STRONGER, HEALTHIER AND IN CONTROL OF YOUR BODY.
Our small Pilates mat classes are operating online and we continue to keep the groups small so that we can interact with you to answer your questions and provide feedback. We ask you to take some Pilates One to Ones with us prior to joining a class so that you understand our approach and get the most from your body.
Movement is personal. How you move is shaped by the makeup of your body, your lifestyle and your past. Our classes will give you a regular routine that helps to relieve you of general stiffness and get more out of your body.
Contact us for more information on how we can help you.
Mat Pilates Classes
Just you, and the mat. And, of course, some expert support from us. You’ll finish feeling lighter and taller and you’ll increase your understanding of how your body moves and works so that you can change how you move and live, long after the class has finished.
Monday Morning and Mindful Pilates Classes
These classes are slow and relaxed for men and women of all ages.
Runners & Cyclists Pilates Classes
Giving greater hip, foot and trunk stability and mobility for you runners and cyclists out there. They are suitable for healthy men and women of a good fitness level.
Spine Opening Pilates Classes
Helping to open the spine and educating you how to move. They are best for men and women who wish to continue to move safely as they age. Please do check with your doctor or physio, but this class is also often suitable those suffering from Osteoporosis or advanced Osteopaena as we minimise forward bending in the spine.
Yin Yoga Classes (not currently operating)
Okay, so this is Yoga and not Pilates, but Yin Yoga is different. No balancing , no perfect poses, just deep relaxation and release. A floor based practice that allows you to relax into each of the poses for between 2 and 7 minutes. Working with the breath to release tensions in both the body and mind.

What my clients say
“I honestly don’t know how I’d have managed these past few months without the very focused support, the absolute positivity and the overwhelming sense of empowerment that I have gained from your Pilates sessions. My heartfelt thanks.”
“I must say you have changed my view on Pilates completely. Despite having had back problems in the past, my exercise regime has always been rather full on and I have never really enjoyed Pilates. However, your approach has changed my view completely and I now really think about my body and posture. I also appreciate how much Pilates complements my other exercise and I wouldn’t be without it. So a big THANK YOU!”
"Thanks for all your help and for a fantastic session. I’ve really benefitted from your expert tuition. We were talking on Saturday about people who are gifted. I think you are one of them. You listen well and then teach me in a way that works for me. That is gifted, in my book. Thank you."
“I have really enjoyed the class and the understanding that it also provides regarding body mechanics and how it all works!! I find this really useful and much more beneficial than any Pilates classes I have done over the years in the past - so thank you!”
