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. You will learn the key principles of Pilates and all the basic Pilates moves so that you are then ready to join one of our regular classes.
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.
