What is Pilates

 

Mat Pilates

Pilates is a form of exercise works the whole body through a range of exercises. It aims to improved spinal mobility, strength, and co-ordination. Pilates exercises can be adapted to suit any ability, age and made sport specific to supplement training. 

 

How it works

Pilates exercises target deep postural and stability muscles, whilst working on co-ordinating breathing and movement of the arms and legs. Pilates can reduce pain, stiffness and assist in physical function as well as boosting postural awareness and wellbeing. 

 

Pilates is a great adjunct to physiotherapy treatments, to improve confidence and self-management prior to attending large generic gym classes or returning to sports. Our small classes ensure our highly skilled teachers can offer support and corrections.

Classes will start week beginning 25th September 2023. You can purchase a block of 5 with a 6 week expiry, there will be no classes during school holidays.

Mixed ability with Caroline 

Tuesday: 5.30pm - 6:30pm 

 

This is a class open to all. The pace may be little faster than standard Beginners but options for exercises will be given for those that may wish to work harder and have more experience. Corrections will be given by the instructor to ensure you are working effectively.

 

Post-natal with Jo 

Thursday: 10.30am - 11.30am 

This class is open to ladies from 6-8 weeks post-partum, and you are welcome to bring non crawlers to the lesson. The class is taught by a highly trained Pilates instructor who has additional training in pregnancy and post-natal pilates. We would prefer you to have completed a Mummy MOT with one of the physio team prior so that you get the most out of your classes and especially if you have symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.  The focus will be on assisting the post-natal body to recover, working on abdominal strength, pelvic stability, and spinal mobility. As a mum always on the move looking after yourself is a must.

 

Pelvic Release Class - Physio led with Bally

Thursday: 7-8pm

We can hold a lot of anxiety and tension in the pelvis, which can present in many ways. As pelvic pain, constipation, overactive pelvic floor, low back pain to name a few. Pain makes us tense up and is often associated with breath holding, abdominal bracing, tight gluts / pelvic floor and short shallow breathing patterns. This gentle class will explore the connection between the diaphragm, abdominals and pelvic floor and through gentle movements, stretches, breathing techniques and mindfulness meditation allow the connection to be restored. The class will allow you to slow down the pace of life and reconnect with yourself. 

All of our teachers have trained with APPI or Bodycontrol Pilates.
