We offer Beginner and Intermediate group Mat Pilates classes. Our mat classes are small with a maximum of 12 in each class, in most classes you will use a mix of small apparatus (magic circles, foam rollers, therabands etc) to assist or challenge an exercise.
If you are new to Pilates, our beginner mat class is suitable for you. If you have an injury, suffer from pain or are completely new to Pilates we recommend you book an Initial Consultation with one of our instructors before starting classes.
Contact us to book your Initial Consultation. They are booked by phone or email as our schedules vary weekly.
If you have Pilates experience of over a year, our Intermediate mat class is suitable for you. This is a challenging class which requires a good understanding of Pilates principles as well as a reasonable level of physical fitness.
Over 55s Group Classes
Our Over 55’s program is for you if you are looking to remain strong and active. We offer weekly classes on the mat using small apparatus and on the SpringChair.
Both classes use traditional Pilates exercises to improve core strength from the inside out. They also focuses on increasing flexibility while improving spinal mobility. The difference between the mat and the SpringChair class is that the SpringChair classes also focuses on improving balance and functional movement (as many of the exercises are done standing).
Both classes are completely safe if you have with low bone density (osteopenia/osteoperosis) providing a recommended combination of balance, resistance and impact exercises. They are also beneficial if you have arthritis or are recovering from hip and knee replacements as we practice isolated movements of the joints.
Pre Natal Group Classes
If you are over 12 weeks pregnant with a low risk pregnancy, our pre-natal classes are for you.
We teach a weekly pre-natal class on the mat and on the Springchair. We focus on developing and maintaining deep abdominal strength and pelvic strength as well as upper and lower body strength and spinal mobility. The class is suitable for those with pregnancy related pain such as pelvic girdle pain or rib pain. The class uses the studio equipment to work with your body to keep it strong and energised throughout your pregnancy
Post Natal Group Classes
Our post natal classes are for you if you are at least six weeks post partum or 10 weeks post partum and had a C-section.
Pilates is a fast, safe and effective way to get your body back in shape after having a baby. Initially we focus on reconnecting the walls of abdominal muscles that were stretched throughout pregnancy and strengthening the pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles. After core strength is re-established, the postnatal program is customized to target those specific areas needing tone, strength, and length.
You are welcome to bring your babies the daytime post natal class. They can lie beside you if they are awake. Please consider that there are stairs leading up to the studio so you will not be able to bring strollers. Babies are welcome up until the age of one year.
