PILATES

Do you want to be able to move more comfortably and efficiently?
Have you recently ha a baby and want to regain strength and tone?If so, Pilates could be just what you are looking for.
If you would like to attend our Pilates classes, it is our policy that you book in for a 1:1 Pilates assessment, prior to attending your first block of classes, which can be arranged at a time to suit you.
This is to ensure that the tutor understands you and your condition fully and can adapt the Pilates as required for you as an individual. It will also give you a greater understanding of the exercises involved and how to get the best results for yourself from the classes.

If you have experienced back pain, have had surgery or are recovering from a period of ill health, Pilates could be a great way to help you rebuild your strength and flexibility.

Pilates can also serve to PREVENT back problems.

PHYSIO-LED PERSONAL TRAINING SESSIONS

Appointments can be made for a day and time that suit YOU.

The initial appointment lasts 45 minutes.  Your personal training sessions can last 30 or 60 minutes.
