If you would like to attend our Pilates classes, it is essential 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 ensures that the Physiotherapist knows how exercises may need to be tailored specifically for you, and will give you confidence that you are doing the basic exercises correctly in the class, which you can then build on.

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.

Specialist Pilates for Cyclists and Runners- starting in January 2019

Training for cycling has been traditionally very simple; the more miles the better! But could the introduction of Pilates help the cyclist to train smarter? The answer is yes – the more power they can produce with less effort, the faster they can travel for longer. By improving their core strength, cyclists can increase their power output.                                  As Sir Bradley Wiggins says “without a solid core you can’t transfer power efficiently.” Pilates is just the exercise package to increase that core!
