Beginners & Mixed Ability

These classes are aimed at:

Whilst the Beginners Pilates classes are aimed at complete novices, the Mixed Ability classes are a bit more of a “broad church” for

  • people who are returning to Pilates after time away
  • people who may simply want a gentler class.
  • people who aren’t ready for the intermediate Pilates sessions

You will be working on strength development and core stability. Also, expect exercises to help gain more flexibility, especially in the legs and shoulders and more movement in the joints, especially the spine.

This is a Mind/Body exercise format and you will have the chance to focus on your breath and relaxation.

Our classes are ongoing 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.  All of our classes are in community venues and I can assure you that they have a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere,

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.

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.
