“ Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness” Joseph Pilates
My aim is to run classes that enable you to not only feel the benefits of Pilates but to teach you simple moves you can do at home and how to use Pilates in your daily life.
I offer a range of group Pilates classes for all levels and abilities. A hands-on approach, with the technique of each movement the key focus allowing you to really understand how to move correctly. Pilates class numbers are kept small, so that you receive individual attention and make the greatest gains in your strength and flexibility. If you would like to talk about your requirements for personal one to one or two to one Pilates in the comfort of your home please contact me.
All Pilates classes and retreats are now run through my sister company Beyond the Studio Pilates please click on the links below to take you to the right page on my other website.

Pilates Class Levels
Starting with the complete basics and principles at a physically gentle level. This can be more of a challenge mentally as you learn how to use your body correctly and identify how to avoid ‘compensations’. This is where everyone should start off on their Pilates journey.
Building on the techniques learned in the beginners classes, in Improvers, we develop the exercises to a more physically demanding level, whether that means increasing the range of movement or reps required per exercise. One or two alternatives and explanation and visual demonstration will be given. Improvers requires knowledge of the basic principles but not necessarily great physical strength.
The pace of this level is faster with slightly less detailed explanation as we go through progressions. Participants are expected to know the exercises as they start to explore harder movements and begin to understand their own limits, with more verbal correction given.
This most physically demanding level, a real work-out but still follows the basic principles. Everyone should work to their own level within each exercise. The pace is fast moving and challenging. Participants are expected to know their own limits and modification alternatives if a move does not suit their body.
