Pilates Classes

Pilates classes are a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body.

Let’s concentrate on you

Pilates was introduced by Joseph Pilates as a way to rehabilitate injured athletes and dancers as a way to safely return them to exercise and maintain their fitness levels. It can be an aerobic or anaerobic form of exercise, and requires control and concentration to move your body through precise ranges of motion.

The workout consists of a variety of exercise sequences regressed or progressed to suit an individual’s needs and abilities. Pilates is therefore suitable for everyone, beginner to advanced.

Pilates Fundamentals

Pilates fundamentals offers a basic and steady pace, ideal for those recovering from injury, have mild back/neck issues or if you are looking to take it slow.

During the class you work through the classical mat order, using modification & building blocks to make it accessible. As you get stronger you can use less modifications and/or progress on to a more generic class.

Lisa-Marie is a Certified comprehensive Pilates Instructor teaching classical Pilates which comes from the original format developed by Joseph Pilates. She delivers Group Mat classes and also offer private 1:1’s on apparatus such as the Reformer & Tower. Available on request.
