Pilates 4

‘In ten sessions you’ll feel the difference, in twenty you’ll see the difference, in thirty you’ll have a new body,’
(Joseph Pilates).

Pilates 4 Performance

Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on balance, strength, control and flexibility. It was first developed in Germany in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates as a form of rehabilitation for soldiers. It is a low impact activity suitable for all ages and abilities. During the Pilates 4 Performance sessions we will incorporate various bits of small equipment such as resistance bands and balls to vary and increase the challenge of different exercises as we progress.

Is Pilates 4 Performance right for me?

Pilates can benefit absolutely everyone! Whether your goal is to improve mobility, strength or body awareness and control. Pilates 4 Performance is for anyone that wants to perform to their best. This may be returning to perform simple day to day tasks following an injury, maintaining your regular sporting activities, being able to play with your children or grand-children, or it may be minimising injury risk whilst training for a marathon or big event.

If you have no previous Pilates experience, we recommend a 1-2-1 session with Abi prior to joining our classes. This will enable you to learn the basics and be aware of any limitations or adaptations required to ensure you get the most out of the classes.

If you have had a recent injury, are pregnant or post-natal, or have any specific medical conditions, please speak with us to check if this class is appropriate before booking a place.

What do I need to bring?

Dress in clothing that will allow you to move freely. Bring a bottle of water and a small towel. We will provide mats and head cushions – but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.

Class size:

Classes will be limited to a maximum of 10 participants ensuring you have plenty of space to move and enabling individual feedback to be given throughout the sessions. There is also an option to ‘dial-in’ and perform the class remotely from the comfort of home if this helps facilitate attendance (please book online and confirm remote attendance via email if not attending the class in-person).

Classes are from 6pm every Monday.
