One-to-one and small group classes are available for everyone! They can be taken as a one-off introduction to the technique or as a series of sessions.
Although it is not mandatory, we would encourage all new students to do a one-to-one session before joining a 5x5 course (see below) and progressing into larger groups, as this progression greatly helps make sense of what can be achieved. We very strongly recommend a One-to-one programme for anyone referred to Pilates by an orthopaedic consultant or a physiotherapist. During this initial session, we can work to understand the client's needs, modifying any exercise before they join the group.
5x5's are designed to provide beginners with an ideal introduction to Pilates techniques. 5 clients form a small group and spend 5 weeks learning the principles of Pilates. You will be guided thoroughly through the different elements of Pilates, including Reformers, laying the foundations for you to continue into our range of mainstream classes.
Assisted places are also available on request. This facility allows you to join in with a standard, group class while having a dedicated teacher assistant with you throughout the session. This can be booked for several weeks until your confidence in the technique builds up.
