PILATES x 10 WEEKS
Mon 9th Jan - Mon 13th March
What is Pilates
Commonly compared with Yoga, yet different in it's entirety. Pilates is a mind-body exercise method developed in the 1970s by Joseph Pilates.
The key goal of Pilates is improvement of one's movement patterns for overall better health. Through life we develop different ways of holding ourselves when we sit, when we walk and when we exercise. The way we hold ourselves in most cases results in overuse of some muscles and underuse of others. As a result we end up with less than ideal posture and aches and pains.
Pilates is a clever low impact method of re-strengthening these muscles. The intelligence is in the method. When the exercise is completed ' correctly' the teacher and practitioner can understand just how much (or how little) strength is in the target area. They can then work slowly, surely and safely, class to class, to rebuild strength in the target area.
Many people join Pilates with lower back issues. When a person has low core strength the lower back is not well supported and susceptible to issues. By using Pilates techniques, the practitioner can pin point the core area and gently, slowly and safely rebuild strength back - eventually supporting their lower back and alleviating some issues.
Pilates is a fantastic way to gently ease into exercise for people of all ages and abilities. It strengthens, stretches, tones and supports with balance in both the mind and body. If you don't know where to start, we are here to help. Reach out and we can schedule a call or chat to guide you.... .
Multilevel Pilates- with Miriam Mondays 17.45 - 18.45pm
This class started out as a gentle beginners Pilates class in 2022.
Soon after, the regular practitioners built up their strength and now enjoy a slightly more challenging session. This class is suitable for beginners without wrist injuries/issues. Clients who are not currently exercising and would prefer to start out very gently and are advised to begin on Wednesdays 10am rather than this one. However, this class is more than suitable for those who already have a fitness regime such as regularly walking, sport, gym etc.

If you would like to work through each Pilates movement one to one with an instructor and have feedback on how to perform each movement for your unique body type, we are available for one to one sessions.
At one to one sessions we discuss your goal, your unique body, your key areas for strength and stretch and set up a 10xWeek plan for you
