Pilates is described as a Mind-Body form of exercise. It is not just about doing the exercises, but about developing a greater sense of self awareness by doing the exercises. This awareness gives you confidence in your movement and the ability to adapt and change movement patterns so they become stronger, less tense and more comfortable.
I teach though basic principles rather than just set exercises , as my experience is that this helps develop versality, resilience and confidence in the body rather than feeling anxious about doing things wrong.
My group classes combine
- Elements of core stability work taken from Pilates and other Physiotherapy Rehab protocols and will strongly support your low back and pelvic stability and mobility .
- Balance and coordination
- Flexibility and Mobility - Explorations around how to move with less stress and tension but instead with ease and flow
- Finding ways of using movement and rest to help manage feelings of stress and anxiety
See class timetable for list of classes, times and venues and costs.
Booking is essential as some classes may be full.
If you are interested in joining a class send me a quick email and we can chat about the possible options. If you are a complete beginner then I occasionally run short beginners courses which you could attend. If this is not possible I recommend a one to one session to introduce you to the exercises/postures and how to approach them. If you have an injury or joint problem you need to manage then we can discuss how you would amend exercises and postures to suit your situation and help manage the condition well. If you have done Pilates and/or Yoga before and have no particular concerns then you may be fine to just join up. Anything you are not sure about just get in touch.
