New to Pilates?
A complete beginners class. I refer to it as level 1. Depending on the attendance level, the class may progress to level 2. It is ideal for stretching and learning the basics.
A telephone consultation is advised prior to attending so that I am aware of any issue which may affect your mobility. PLEASE SEND A TEXT MESSAGE OR EMAIL ME FIRST.
Level 1 is suitable for anyone who has been recommended pilates and has a basic level of fitness. You should be able to walk without pain. For anyone with an injury or pain, a consultation is always necessary. Please contact me for further information by leaving your details.
A mixed ability class is for those with experience of pilates. Levels will be change during each series of exercises. You need a good level of fitness. You are encouraged to progress through levels and should have a good awareness of the exercises as well your own ability. I call this progression. A small ball amd resistance band are used. I can provide these on your first visit.
Classes are mat-based and designed to help your breathing technique, strengthen core muscles and improve posture.
About me: I have 12 years experience as a professional masseur which has given me insight into many back, pelvis, hip, neck and shoulder conditions. It has given me a great chance to assist those in need through the power of touch. I started using pilates as a way of maintaining my own posture and found that the benefits were far beyond good posture. The strengthening of the core muscles creates stability and flexibility which has a positive effect throughout the body. For example, if you think you have tight hamstrings then this is often caused by the pelvis. Pilates classes are great for people who want to build up their core strength, avoid or recover from injury, improve their posture and balance and gain a greater mind and body awareness!
