Group Lessons

“… when all your muscles are properly developed you will, as a matter of course, perform your work with minimum effort and maximum pleasure.”

("Return to Life Through Contrology" by Joseph Pilates)


  • We can accommodate a maximum of 10 people per lesson.  Lessons are 60 minutes duration.  Mat work is performed on raised beds that convert to reformers.  We provide all other small equipment.
 
  • Pilates' exercise is a technique and there are many skills, principles and movements to learn and perfect.  The pace of a lesson may vary depending upon the level of expertise, knowledge, understanding and awareness demonstrated by participants.  
 
  • We provde the following levels: rehab/basic beginner, fundamental, mixed.  The fundamental movement repertoire is appropriate for anyone with a history of injury and provides safe and effective movements for anyone with a health condition including pregnancy.  The mixed level repertoire provides additional movements that are more intensive and approrpriate for anyone who can perform the fundamental repertoire at its highest level of intensity.  Mixed level is not advised for anyone with a history of injury or health condition including pregnancy.

 

  • We offer varied intensity levels for the fundamental and mixed level repertoires.  Our aim is to help you progress to the highest level of intensity appropriate for your needs and therefore we encourage members to transfer to higher lesson levels as and when appropriate.  

 

  • To guarantee lesson places, members are assigned to a specific lesson day/time.  Most members attend one lesson each week but members may request to attend more lessons if they wish (maximum of 2 weekly lessons).

Client Feedback

"I had muscle spasm in the right side of my groin that started in October 2009.  I have been attending group mat work classes since September 2011.  The muscle spasm slowly started going after the months and totally stopped around May 2012.   I do believe that the Pilates' exercises are the reason the pain has finally gone (September 2012)."  (SE)


"Amazing value; good fun; informative and made a difference to my mat work group sessions straightaway.  Would fully recommend other people to have a technqiue review." (CB)


"A good, controlled work out giving me a deep feeling of relaxation and satisfaction in a professional surrounding." (YH)


"Many thanks for reminding me just what an amazing piece of kit the reformer is; it helps to understand how I could do my weekly mat exercises better." (MH)
