Testimonial

I just wanted to feedback that I totally loved and enjoyed your class. You create a really welcoming and relaxed vibe, which really helped. I moved down here, just before the first lockdown and I haven’t really had a chance to find my feet, and the only other class I had tried previously between lockdowns, I really didn’t feel at ease at all! So thank you for making me feel at home 🙏🏻
I will be back but over the next couple of weeks, I have a few different classes booked in for various things, so I can try a few things out and then get a regular routine of doing the things I love!
So I definitely will be back and will probably try a couple of your other classes, as soon as I get some time

 Benefits of Pilates

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop certain parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole.

Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased the range of motion for the joints.

Attention to core support and full-body fitness, including the breath and the mind, provide a level of integrative fitness that is hard to find elsewhere.1 It is also a reason that Pilates is popular in rehab settings, as well as with athletes who find that Pilates is a great foundation for any kind of movement they do. ​

Long, lean muscles are the name of the game. In Pilates, you are not looking to build muscles for show. You are building toned muscles that work perfectly within the context of your body as a whole, and your individual functional fitness needs as you move through life.

One way Pilates creates long, strong muscles is by taking advantage of a type of muscle contraction called an eccentric contraction.

Whether you are a senior just starting to exercise, an elite athlete, or somewhere in between, the foundations of Pilates movement apply to you. Building from core strength, focusing on proper alignment, and a body/mind integrative approach make Pilates accessible to all.

With thousands of possible exercises and modifications, Pilates workouts can be tailored to individual needs.



Pilates Creates Strength Without Bulk 

Long, lean muscles are the name of the game. In Pilates, you are not looking to build muscles for show. You are building toned muscles that work perfectly within the context of your body as a whole, and your individual functional fitness needs as you move through life.

One way Pilates creates long, strong muscles is by taking advantage of a type of muscle contraction called an eccentric contraction.

In Pilates, you work toward a safe increase in length and stretch of the muscles and range of motion within the joints.2 You won't find quite as much "pretzel logic" in Pilates (as you might in yoga), but having a body that can stretch and bend to meet the flow of life is a realistic goal.​

The core muscles of the body are the deep muscles of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor. We rely on these muscles to support a strong, supple back, good posture, and efficient movement patterns.

When our core is strong, the frame of the body is supported. Our neck and shoulders can relax, and the rest of our muscles and joints are free to do their jobs (but don't have to do more).

A nice side benefit is that core training promotes flat abs. Pilates can help you learn how to pull your abs in to get the most out of the exercises.

Good posture is a reflection of good alignment that is supported by a strong core. It is a position from which one can move freely.  with Pilates  fundamentals  

Pilates trains the body to express itself with strength and harmony.

People who practice Pilates often have excellent posture. It's also a reason 

Pilates Increases Energy 

It might seem like a paradox, but the more you exercise, the more energy you have. The more energized you are, the more you'll feel like doing your exercise routine (to a point, of course).

Pilates gets the breath and circulation moving, stimulates the spine and muscles, and floods the body with the good feelings one gets from exercising the whole body.


Joseph Pilates was adamant that Pilates (or "contrology" as he called it) was about "the complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit."

This is a secret of Pilates exercise. When we practice each movement with our total attention, the body and mind unite to bring forth the most benefit possible from each exercise.

The Pilates principles — centering, concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow — are key concepts that are used to integrate body and mind.​

What is Reformer Pilates?

“The reformer is a piece of equipment created by Joseph Pilates,”  “It’s a workout using spring resistance. What it teaches you is how to find length and space in the body while working against resistance.
What are the benefits?
Like Pilates performed on a mat, the reformer helps to strengthen your core, improve your posture and increase your mobility.
“Reformer Pilates complements any training regime,” . “This morning I’ve trained two swimmers and a tennis player. Everybody needs that stronger centre, whether you’re a high-level athlete or working at a desk. Sitting all day at work with minimal movement often leads to back pain. Pilates alleviates it, because it gives you the length and space through the body, which gives you better posture and better awareness of your body.”
Reformer Pilates is also something you can use to reduce your risk of injuries, rather than just something that can help with rehab.
"All too often `I  see people just because they’re injured,” . “Incorporate this into your workout routine now and it arms you with a skill, as opposed to having to find the skill after you hurt yourself.”
How does it differ from mat Pilates?
Reformer Pilates works the body in the same way as mat Pilates, and the reformer is not the only piece of equipment used in the practice. The various pieces of equipment used, as well as mat Pilates techniques, complement each other to help you progress.
“It’s a full system,” . “You’re using equipment to build the skills to make your mat practice better. With reformer we work with spring resistance to help your body recognise how to find space. Then when you take the spring off, and you do a similar mat move, you can find the same space in the body without that resistance.”
