Step 1: Know your level:

Gentle Pilates


Suitable for a complete novice

A beginner course or class will introduce you to the principles of Pilates and take you through basic movements. You may choose to repeat this course or move to an improver level next.


Suitable for people who have completed a beginner course and/or have done Pilates in the past.

An Improver level course will introduce you to more challenging progressions with the option to remain on the beginner level until you feel ready to go further.


Our Intermediate and Advanced classes are faster paced and more challenging.
You must be confident with the language and principles of Pilates, including the names of movements.


An open class is for any level of experience.

The Instructor will demonstrate several levels and include a detailed preparation at the beginning for any new participants. You will be fully supervised and guided towards the correct level for your body.


Suitable for you after week 12 of your pregnancy, these classes are a great way to keep you agile and prepared for birth.

Step 2: Select a session 'type':


Matwork Class

A good way to learn the basics. These classes use mats and small equipment. You will do floor based movements, sometimes using stretch bands, balls and small weights. Classes are either 'drop-in' where you can start at anytime, or courses that need to be prebooked.

Reformer Class*

Very addictive! Suitable for all levels of ability

The Pilates reformer is one of the most effective pieces of apparatus in the Pilates studio. In group reformer classes you are shown how to literally 'reform' your body.
Reformer classes can be as gentle or as challenging as you like and they run as courses which need to be prebooked.

Open Floor Studio*

In these sessions you work through a personal program devised by your instructor.

Your program will be unique to you, including stretches and movements that utilise the Pilates studio apparatus.

Open floor is fully supervised.
