Each Pilates class starts with exercises that concentrate on breathing and regaining the correct position of the spine and pelvis.
Once you’re all set up, we start the fun stuff; exercises designed to challenge your balance, co-ordination and stamina. Pilates relies on using relatively small movements to exhaust specific muscles. You may not feel like you’ve done an hour of weights at the time, but by the next morning you should have a virtuous ache! We also work on improving your flexibility and showing you correct lifting techniques to help avoid injury in the future.
At the end of the class we try to send you away feeling strong, relaxed and in control. We will sometimes give you exercises to do outside of class, this will help you improve even faster.
As the course progresses, you will learn how to engage your deep stabilising muscles in order to improve your posture and movement. The classes will challenge and encourage you to stretch, strengthen and find muscles you didn’t know you had!
The tutor combines her extensive dance training with a keen interest in anatomy and physiology. She has been taking Pilates from teachers in the UK and United States since 2000. She received her Matwork Pilates qualification in 2009 and is also qualified to teach pre and post natal Pilates.
