Pilates aims to strengthen your body in an even way, it focuses on core strength to improve your general fitness and wellbeing. Most Pilates exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment (Reformer, Cadillac or Wunda Chair) which can provide resistance or support, depending on your personal needs.
I have lesson progressions planned for each half term, and use a combination of small equipment to aid with myofascial release, equipment to challenge balance, and resistance with bands or weights to increase limb and core strength.
How do I know which class is for me?

In these classes we introduce some of the more advanced exercises and develop an increasing level of High Intensity work.
These classes are for those with considerable experience of Pilates, an ability to undertake prolonged sequences of movement and are predominantly for those who are injury free.
