Our Pilates Beginners classes are aimed at:
- complete novices
- people who are returning to Pilates after time away
- people who may simply want a gentler class.
Our classes are on going which gives you the flexibility to start whenever you want, not just at the beginning of term. This does mean that you’ll be joining a class that’s in full swing. Please don’t be put off by that though. Everyone else has had to make a start as well.
Please do feel free to ask for clarification of an exercise, or an alternative. We are always on hand with alternative exercises and modifications but you might have to nudge us.
We provide mats, yoga blocks and sometimes other equipment such as Pilates soft balls, spiky massage balls, Exercise Bands.
You may have decided to start doing regular Pilates because you’ve been advised to do so by your Chiropractor, Osteopath, Physiotherapist, or GP. We’re glad you are giving Pilates a go and putting your faith in us and trying the classes. Please do bear in mind that our classes are aimed at a mainstream audience. By the standards of an exercise class they are gentle and slow paced, but there still might be exercises that are too demanding for your back. Bear it in mind, listen to your body and ease up or stop if you need to. And talk to us!
If you need gentler classes, then you might like to consider our specialist Back Care Pilates.
