A. The most effective, safe and beneficial way to start would be to join one of our Absolute Beginners Pilates Courses. These run regularly throughout the year in addition to our regular timetable.

A. Pilates is highly recommended as a safe and effective method of exercising and is often used to support rehabilitation. We often liaise with physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths, to support injury rehabilitation and post-surgery recovery.

It is important that your teacher is aware of any injuries before you embark on an exercise program, so that we can give you individual advice and modify exercises to suit your needs. In some cases, we would obtain advice from your GP, Physiotherapist or Osteopath before you start. Contact us to talk through any queries or concerns further.

A. Currently, due to the stringent Covid-19 protocols that we have in place, you will need to bring your own mat and a hand towel to your class.

For any additional small equipment, we also operate a popular ‘kit loaning system’, giving each of our In-Studio classes the opportunity to benefit from using a piece of small equipment from our collection. Please do ask us about this, or if you would like us to recommend a supplier for you to purchase your own equipment.

A. All newcomers to our Pilates classes, are required to attend a 1:1 Pilates introduction, or small group workshop, prior to attending our group sessions. These appointments introduce you to the fundamentals of Pilates, and how to effectively integrate these into your movements, so that you can gain the very most from your group sessions. It also gives us the valuable opportunity to see how you move, to observe your posture, and understand fully your individual needs and objectives, so that we can work together to achieve the results you are seeking. Get in touch to book your class introduction here.

We may also liaise with your healthcare practitioner during this time to ensure you receive the very most from your programme. Find out more about our 1:1 Pilates sessions here.

A. The ideal frequency would be three times a week, but for most people this can be difficult to manage with today's busy lifestyles! However, you can utilise what you learn in your Pilates classes during your daily life as you become more aware of how you move, stand, sit and walk etc. Home practise is also of great benefit, even if it is only for 10 minutes a day! Our Pilates on Demand memberships are a wonderful way of topping up your class experience a few times per week. We upload fresh videos and send these to your email inbox every week, at every level from beginners to advanced. You are then free to stream these online, anytime you choose.
