Pilates Matwork: Pilates is a low impact form of exercise which focuses on improving the strength of your body’s stabilising muscles (“the core”) and enhancing your flexibility. Exercises are completed on mats which we provide and classes are led by our physiotherapists who are pilates trained. Pilates will help you to see improvements in your strength, coordination, muscle endurance, posture and body confidence.
Reformer Pilates: Reformer pilates classes are done on reformer machines which consist of a gliding carriage inside a wooden or metal frame which is connected to a system of springs, pulleys and ropes or straps. Exercises target every part of the body, building strength and toning muscles . The resistance level is adjustable to ensure you can load appropriately regardless of your fitness or strength level, and add further challenge as needed. Maximum 4 per class.
