Pilates

Pilates is an exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Based upon 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.

We run a timetable that caters for all abilities and our classes are suitable for anyone with injuries, please discuss this with the instructor and they will direct you to the most suitable class.

Mat Work Classes:

These classes cover a variety of Pilates moves from the classical moves to the clinical application of exercises. These classes are made up of exercises that use just your body and the mat as well as smaller equipment such as over balls, dynabands, wobble cusions, spikey balls and toning rings. All equipment is provided.
Our classes are designed with the attendees in mind so you class has been created with moves that wil benefit you.
Most classes are suitable for all abilities, please discuss in your induction which class will suit you the best.
We have added some pay as you go classes for people who are un able to commit to the regular classes so there is a time and option for everyone.

 

Speciality Classes

We have a range of classes with specific focuses:

Myofascial release trigger point Pilates

Fascia is the connective tissue that holds our body together. It's designed to move our bodies and allow 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 fascia.
Daily movement is vital for fascia health. Myofacial release class is designed to release you fascially from the inside, undoing muscular restrictions and easing chronic pain conditions. This class is for all abilities, it sis agentle approach using pilates principles to creat 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.

Prenatal Pilates

Suitable for anyone after 14 weeks of pregnancy, you should gain concent 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. 

Pilates on the ball

A dynamic class that uses the large swiss ball. The ball adds variety to the sessions and an extra challenge when working with balance and stability. This is a fun variation of Pilates that can be enjoyed by most abilities, it is recommendedthat you have done some mat work before and have a good understanding of the basic Pilates principles.

 

Equipment

We now have a full range of larger pilates equipment

  • Reformer
  • Cadillac

These pieces of equipment are suitable for beginners as they help to give feedback and precission to the moves, the springs can be used to aid the movements as you build your strength.
