OUR many Forms of pilates?
Private Pilates Training is a perfect way to master the basics and progress quickly to get stronger, more flexible, more mobile and enjoy a body that moves in alignment with enhanced posture. Our 121 service offers you quality instruction and a tailored approach to your body utilising everything pilates – including Mat, Reformer, Tower and small equipment. As a fully functional Pilates Studio we have equipment solely dedicated to your use. However, if private pilates isn’t for you, we also offer group classes in Mat Pilates & Aerial Pilates. Check out our course dates by scrolling down.
Mat Pilates is a perfect starting point for beginners or those who are overcoming injury or struggling with pain due to poor posture. This wonderful discipline will help you isolate parts of the body by teaching the brain to fire the right signalling patterns to lengthen and strengthen the right muscles at the right time. No more letting your lower back take the strain due to poor core strength or suffering with upper back pain due to rounded shoulders and poor posture.
Mat Pilates starts with the foundations of breathing and moving correctly.

Reformer Pilates is one of the most popular pieces of pilates studio equipment. It was created in the 1920’s by Joseph Pilates as a means to help bed ridden hospital patients to exercise by rigging springs to hospital beds to allow patients to gain fitness and strength. Today the principle remains fundamentally unchanged and results in the Reformer – a gliding carriage controlled by springs and ropes
Benefits of Reformer Pilates
- It allows the body to work in a single plane of motion without being vertically loaded. This is great for people who struggle to exercise due to back problems
- The reformer springs can change to vary resistance and increase or decrease the demand on the deep stabilising muscles i.e. the core to really isolate this area and develop greater strength
- The movement allows for improvement in mobility and flexibility for a lengthened feeling and greater posture

The Tower is a wonderful piece of equipment as an extension of the reformer, or as a stand alone piece of apparatus. Due to its design it is best utilised to improve flexibility and movement of the hamstrings and entire spine by allowing the vertebra to move through a full range of movement without any load of strain. The Tower performs best when integrated with the Reformer and Mat Pilates to provide the best 60 minute Pilate experience.
During your 121 sessions you will utilise all our Pilates equipment including the Tower with your sessions designed around your postural needs and imbalances.

Aerial pilates brings a whole new to twist to pilates. It literally turns it on its head as you learn to invert with the support of suspended silks. Following many of the principles of pure pilates, aerial pilates adds new dimensions. You will develop great strength and balance, plus a new relationship with your body as you hang upside down.
Aerial Pilates is for everyone, as the class is adapted and has many options, but for those who have been doing matt pilates or yoga and want to try something new, it is amazing! Along with traditional principles of pilates: breath, control, precision, concentration, centering and flow; the use of the silks allows us to add further dimensions namely in the forms of: strength, suspension and inversion. Aerial Pilates is performed with silk hammocks suspended from the ceiling and is a great aid to pilates as the suspension element helps to align the body, release tension and decompress joints.

Your starter programme to lay the correct foundation for Pilates and better movement. Understand the principles of Pilates and what we mean by core engagement, imprint and more so you progress your pilates practice the right way. All too often it’s easy to follow along in PAYG classes not really understand how the move should ‘feel’. With our hands on approach you will notice the difference immediately.
After completing our basic series this is a perfect follow on to start your transition towards more classical pilates. Gradually learning tailored and regressed versions of the original 34 exercises designed by Joseph Pilates to increase strength, flexibility, stability and more. You will start to feel more flow in your practice mastering the lesser challenging moves to progress your Pilates skill and ability
After completing our Basic and Transition series both you and your teacher will have a good idea of your strengths and areas in need of improvement when it comes to body alignment. This series allows you to focus for 5 weeks in a specialised area such as Flexibility, Strength, Flexion or Extension and thereby concentrating specifically on the areas of improvement YOU need. You can repeat and rotate this series.
This is the final step in your Pilates practice and a way to progress towards mastering the original 34 exercises as taught by Joseph Pilates. Focusing on 7 exercises in each 5 week block you’ll master moves such as the Boomerang, Jack Knife and Control Balance until you can complete a full session or progressive and original pilates moves.
