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. However, if private pilates isn’t for you, we also offer group classes in Mat Pilates, Aerial Pilates and Reformer and Tower Pilates. Check out our course dates by scrolling down.

Mat Pilates

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

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

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. The movement allows for improvement in mobility and flexibility for a lengthened feeling and greater posture

Best Programmes:

  • 121 Pilates Training prices start at £40/hour
  • Group training coming soon! £20pp
Tower Pilates

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

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.

Best Programmes:

  • 121 Pilates Training prices starting at £45/hour
  • 5 Week Aerial Pilates Basic Course £60pp
APPI Clinical Pilates

APPI Physiotherapist led clinical Pilates is perfect for those who need a modified form of Pilates specific to rehabilitation needs. Our award winning resident physio – Coactive Physio – lead these sessions focussing specifically on core development, spinal realignment and imbalances. These are great for those who are currently suffering with extensive back pain, shoulder problems or knee pain and undergoing treatment with a Physio.

Wednesday 20th Feb - 20th Mar @ 10.30am

This course is designed as a follow on from Basic Pilates 1 and is the second in the Basic Series. During this course you will build upon your knowledge of the basics and start to challenge your brain and your body as you ask it to move with more contol, precision and coordination all whilst remembering to breath and engage the core. Sounds simple enough, but as you’ll have found in Basics 1 your core can often relax when you add movement to the mix. During Basics 1 you will have noticed an improvement in posture and awareness of your body. In Basics 2 (and later 3) we aim to make that movement less conscious with added flow. A little like driving, engaging you core will start to become a little more normal. As will standing with shoulders rolled back and down and the pelvic floor drawn up. All leading to a much better version of you

Suitable for:

  • Those who have completed Pilates Basics 1
  • Those who have attended 10-12 PAYG classes consistently over the last three months

Master suspension of the silks with our Aerial Pilates Course. This programme takes all the principles of Pilates such are Breath, Control, Precision, Alignment, Flow, Centreing, control and integration and adds new dimensions. With the use of silks we can add strength, suspension and inversion which literally turn the practice of pilates on its head. You’ll still find traditional pilates moves in this programme such as the Roll Down, Roll Up, Teaser, Plank and much more, but the silks can (depending on use) either regress or progress the move meaning everyone has the opportunity to achieve it. Each week there will be dedicated time to practice inversion and master moves like the Bat and the Vampire giving you that weightless suspended feeling. You’ll start to feel your body relax and joints will have time to decompress and open up aiding in flexibility and better quality of movement.

This course is great for those who have some pilates background, but it’s not necessary. The class is maxed out at 7 meaning I am able to teach in a very hands on manner and each person can go at their own pace when learning the art of Aerial Pilates.

Suitable for:

  • complete beginners
  • those who’ve attended Pilates
  • people who practiced acro

Client Testimonials

After years of going to the gym regularly without achieving the results I wad looking for I’ve finally decided to start working with a personal trainer. KT was my choice, and I’m very happy with that!
We started with a one-on-one sit-down to discuss exactly what I wanted to achieve and KT outlined my fitness program and gave me nutritional guidance. I’m really impressed to see how training with her has improved my strength and changed my body composition in a short period of 4 months. I like KT training style, the workouts are challenging, but she keeps switching things up to keep them interesting and knows exactly how to keep you motivated (I am always looking forward our training sessions). I am sure I will continue to work with her for a long time and strongly recommend KT if you are looking for a personal trainer who can deliver a personalised workout program and help you achieve the results you long for.

Iedena

I’ve been training with Katie for several years, successfully losing 3 stones and going down 2 dress sizes.
Latterly, I’ve needed rehab and switched to one-to-one Pilates.
Katie liaises with my osteopath so she can tailor my programme exactly to my needs.
I am nervous about injuring myself and Katie watches me like a hawk.  
She adjusts your position – sometimes only one or two centimetres – to make it just right.  
I’m not a natural cardio & weights enthusiast, so was delighted to discover you can tone and get fit through Pilates. I’m much more supple and toned now.  
I tried aerial, reformer and mat,  before Katie decided that a mix of mat and reformer Pilates is best. I’ve now built one-to-one Pilates with her into my regular training.
Katie is one of a kind.  She takes a holistic approach beyond what you’d find in a Pilates session elsewhere.  Katie is fully committed, she really cares, never loses her enthusiasm, and is very knowledgeable about nutrition and healthy eating for weight loss. 
Tracy Davis

After six years of Pilates in Boston, USA I was gutted to not be able to find an equally rewarding Pilates studio: ok so Pilates may not be as big in the UK but come on! And then a friend told me about Katie and her Reformer.  Within no time I was back on track.  Katie’s knowledge and approach to Pilates is amazing: on the Mat or the Reformer or even Aerial Katie’s pilates studio has it all.  Its a beautiful space where I can really focus on myself, my core and bringing some balance back into my life (all core Pilates principles!) With Katie I have been able take my Pilates practice further than I thought I ever could and she really understands my needs even on a weekly basis readily adapting the session to deal with any aches and pains as well as my strengths and weaknesses.  After two years working out with Katie she has even developed my very own 30 minute HIT with 30 minutes Pilates which is a perfect work out for this middle aged woman. To borrow from Pilates language: Katies Pilates Studio is a real Powerhouse:) I’m so glad I have Katie in my life.

Value

Why US?

\

We have a 2000sqft studio with the top floor dedicated to Pilates. And as a charming old coach house with brick and timber beams we feel it's the most perfect space for all things Pilates.

\

We are 'career' pilates trainers meaning we are highly qualified and highly professional with years of experience in training clients to get results. I completed a full diploma in all things Pilates learning about everything from Mat Pilates, to Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, the ladder barrel and more. So much more than the two weekends other trainers dedicated to their learning.

\

We offer a non-intimidating environment to train with top of the range equipment and an onsite shower facility. We are not an elitist Pilates studio where everyone wears the right outfit and is long lean and model like. We are about movement and progression tailored to your needs

\

Your membership doesn't start and finish with the 'one hour you pay for'. We offer courses in various disciplines and various levels so you can maximise your budget to attend the studio several times a week.
