What Is Pilates?

Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates and was originally called Contrology.  It concentrates on strengthening the body, posture, balance, flexibility but especially core strength.  The exercises can be adapted to suit complete beginners.

Pilates helps to:

Realign the body

Build core strength

Release back, neck and shoulder tension

Clear the mind

Improve posture

Group Classes

Group classes will accommodate no more than 10 people to allow individual instruction and keep an eye on what everyone is doing.  The classes are 55 minutes long and priced at £10 each. All equipment is supplied, but please feel free to bring your own mat should you prefer.

When are the classes?

We run 5-7 classes every day.  See our timetable for more details.
