Not your typical Pilates Classes
Pilates classes are generally targeted towards the older generation and women who are afraid of gaining muscle… But not this one!
Did you know that Pilates was originally developed to rehabilitate injured soldiers in WWI?! Since then it has been widely used by Physiotherapists to treat and prevent injuries in both professional athletes and the general public.
The goal is to develop a solid foundation of strength and stability, learning how to control your movement patterns and build a greater ‘mind muscle’ connection. This is especially important for those who exercise, but will also help prevent injuries that occur during everyday tasks e.g. carrying your children, picking up objects, sneezing etc…
Beginners Pilates Course
A 6 week course designed for those who have little experience or are completely new to Pilates or exercise.
Over the 6 week period you will learn about the principles and foundations of Pilates as well as being taken through modifications and adaptions of key exercises.
At the end of the 6 weeks you should feel confident enough to progress to a mixed ability class as well as noticing improvements in your posture/alignment and core strength/stability.
Mixed Ability Pilates
These classes are perfect for those looking to progress at their own pace. Exercises are low impact and can be adapted for fitness levels and injuries however these classes are designed to challenge you!
If you are new to exercise or have had a long period off, I would recommend starting with the Beginners Course.
Classes will include body weight exercises as well as resistance bands and small equipment.
