PILATES emphasises good postural alignment, core and back strength and muscle balance.   Pilates will improve your flexibility, increase muscle strength and tone, particularly the abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks. It is also a great way to relieve stress

Always check with your GP or health practitioner



Beginners/Mixed Ability/Improver/Intermediate

Matwork exercises flow from one to another, and everyone is encouraged to work at their own ability.  Exercises are done standing, lying supine (on your back, lying prone (on your front), kneeling, side lying and seated on the mat



Chair Pilates is all done seated on a chair, without the need to do matwork on the floor, so is ideal for anyone who is not comfortable getting down and up from the floor.  Gentle stretching and controlled exercises build body strength, particularly the Core and Back, in a safe effective way.  Suitable for older adults or those with limited mobility
