What is Pilates
Pilates is ‘mindful’ exercise designed to build overall health. It re-balances muscular structure, giving you strength, flexibility and stamina. This type of exercise builds your ‘structural fitness’ and is as important as cardiovascular fitness. Pilates re-educates the mind so you become ‘body-aware’, have better posture, and learn how to move well so everything just flows.

Please discuss injuries with us before booking.
Pilates Level 1
This is for people who have done at least one term of Beginners Pilates and for those who want to continue to work at a moderate pace. We introduce a wider range of exercises than Beginners and explore in more detail how to breathe, stabilise and mobilise the body, gaining much greater control and power.
Pilates Level 2
For those of you who have done at least one or more terms of Level 1. The exercises start to get harder and the pace is a little faster than level 1. We expect you to understand the fundamentals of Pilates and to keep building on these.
Pilates Level 3
Level 3 starts to challenge your muscles and brain far more and we introduce you to more of the ‘classical Pilates’ repertoire of exercises. We would recommend you have done at least a year of consistent Pilates before joining Level 3.
