At present the Pilates for the Over 60s class is Virtual. This shall remain the case for the time being because so many of the people who attend, or who are likely to attend, are shielding.
The Over 60s Pilates classes are gentler and taken at a slower pace than our evening classes and I endeavour to take account of joint stiffness, injuries and restrictions that you may have.
In these classes everyone has something that is a bit of an issue so please don’t let your movement issues put you off. We simply start with what we’ve got, with the aim of getting you moving more, moving more efficiently and freely, and increasing strength and stamina so that you can more easily carry out the activities of daily living.
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, but all of the other participants have been in the same situation a few months or weeks ago.
In class, 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. Please don’t suffer in silence – do speak up if you need some more info or help .
You don’t need to be 60 to join – we’re not counting!

Virtual Classes in your own time
You can now pay to view the classes whenever you want. Each class is recorded (just the instructor), stored in the cloud and can be viewed unlimited times within the calendar week. The cost is £7.50.
IMPORTANT: If this is the first time you have done Pilates with us, please can you fill out a very short Health Questionnaire before you attend class. (It only takes 2 mins). It is necessary for your safety, our planning and for our Insurance purposes.
Please contact us directly for details or to book.
Face to Face Classes
Face to Face classes will return once the pandemic restrictions are lifted.
