PLANNING YOUR FIRST VISIT
Please also check the level of the intended class is suitable for your friend. If they are new to Reformer Pilates, they will need to attend a private 1:1 class, or our Absolute Beginners class on a Friday. A further option would be to attend a 2:1 private class together.
We also run a weekly Complete Beginners class on Fridays at 14:00 if you would prefer to move directly into a group.
Please note that private sessions are a requirement if you have been recommended to do Pilates by your physiotherapist or doctor.
Training with resistance is essential to encourage muscular development, which in turn will lead to faster and more effective results. Vive la résistance!
Additionally, the range of motion of exercises are greatly improved when performed on the reformer, which should contribute to greater flexibility and strength.
We also use a Wunda Chair and two Core Align machines. Please note that these facilities are only available with certain instructors.
‘If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.’ - Joseph Pilates
We offer a range of classes of varying intensities suitable for all levels and ages, whether you're 18 or 88. If you are under 18, a form of consent will need to be signed by your guardian. Please be aware that private classes are needed if you have a chronic physiological issue.
Please note if you have had an injury, or suffer an illness, check with your medical practitioner before embarking on your Pilates journey.
