New to Pilates?

Updated: Nov 27, 2018

We are running 'Pilates for Beginners' classes. Learn the fundamentals of this physically and mentally beneficial practice and then join any of of Pilates classes on a Pilates Class Pass or drop in basis.

These classes are follow a methodology developed by physiotherapists to ensure you perform Pilates exercises correctly, and in a way that supports your own specific needs.

Improve core function, help reduce back pain, build strength, improve balance and flexibility. Excellent for anyone recovering from injury, looking to improve sports performance or post Pregnancy.

The class is run as a small group with a maximum of 8 participants, so that the exercises can be tailored to specific needs within the group. If you let us know if you need to miss a class we will advise options to make up on another day.

Each client is required to attend a one-to-one session with the practitioner prior to their first Pilates class for a confidential assessment of medical/injury history. This pre assessment is 30min at a cost of £30 and can be requested as an Appointment on our booking app Mind Body Online.
