Group mat classes are organized by ability level – beginners to advanced - and are recommended for those who like the social aspect of a class environment and who can commit to a scheduled time most weeks.
Using both the Pilates mat and other small apparatus – foam rollers, balls, bands, rings – our small, intimate classes allow the benefits of Pilates to support and challenge individuals.
A Pilates programme can greatly improve general mobility and enhance core strength while easing the stress placed on the neck and spine during intense sporting activities. Because of this, we see many male athletes who incorporate Pilates into their athletic programme as it is an excellent performance and mobility enhancer.
Pilates mat sessions are available in group classes, private lessons and semi-private lessons.
Bootybarre is a fun and energetic workout that fuses techniques and movements from Dance, Pilates and Yoga that will tone, define and chisel the whole body. It is the perfect combination of strength and flexibility, with the added cardiovascular element of the Barre.
Because Barre focuses heavily on balance and strength through slow, controlled micro-movements, your core is an integral part of training, perfect for keeping toned tummies in check. It’s a low impact exercise, which means it is easy on the joints while still expecting a fairly well-rounded toning workout. You'll be able to sit and stand taller and your lower back will take less stress and tension throughout the day.
You don’t have to be flexible, a dancer, or even have experience to benefit from Barre, and, it's fun!
The Pilates Reformer is a versatile piece of equipment that offers resistance and assistance which together aid in addressing muscle imbalances while also improving body awareness. It allows for a form of exercise that shares the principles of traditional mat classes, but is done on a machine designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s.
The Reformer machine consists of a system of springs, ropes and pulleys and would be a perfect place to start building core. It is a full body workout that builds strength and tones muscles while improving flexibility and balance.
The Reformer offers a high intensity but low impact workout that creates a stronger core and a better posture which helps you to find that extra length.
The Wunda Chair offers a functional approach to achieve correct movement patters.
Both Reformer and Wunda Chair sessions are offered on a one-to-one or semi private/duet basis.
Pilates is all about creating a balanced body, something that’s especially important when navigating a growing bump. This low impact workout focuses on lengthening and strengthening the muscles needed for the duration of pregnancy, as well as postpartum.
Continuing with Pilates during pregnancy assists in reducing back pain, strengthening the pelvic floor, and breathing control, all in a safe manner and environment.
Prenatal classes are specifically designed for our pregnant clients.
