Welcome!

Group mat classes resume early January

Stretch and strengthen safely with me! Attending a weekly group mat class involves commitment and prioritising yourself, but it pays dividends. I teach group mat classes on an ongoing basis. You pay in advance for an 8- or 6-week term; if you miss a class, you can generally make it up at another class or venue within that term, but check with me in first.  Note: you do not have to be fit or flexible to start pilates, but you must not have any acute injury. See class timetable  and descriptions here!

Flexibility, balance, strength ….and overall well-being

Breathe with awareness ~ stretch and move! Develop control and balance in your muscles and skeleton to keep you in relaxed, good posture. Pilates awareness ~ along with eating natural, non-processed foods, lots of green and colourful veggies, drinking lots of water and doing regular aerobic activity (brisk walking for 30 minutes each day) ~ will make you feel better.

Pilates is a low impact, but high intensity exercise that can deliver multiple benefits to your body in terms of fitness, flexibility, overall strength. With regular practice, you will experience freer, more fluid movement.  Pilates is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, and because of its therapeutic nature, it is excellent for rehab or for those whose movement is restricted by years of sitting and poor posture.

Reformer one-on-ones or duets?

Pilates on the reformer is pilates on a deeper, more precise level. It offers either more support or additional challenge. It is excellent for rehab or prehab, hip or knee replacement for example. I have two additional reformers in home studio, along with my original much-loved reformer and tower. One-on-ones may be booked online (or in person), but duets must be arranged in person by email, text or mobile!
