About Us

About Pilates

Pilates is a system of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates and designed to strengthen and maintain the body’s core muscles and improve posture. It builds and maintains the fine control muscles, which are very important as you get older.

Three classes are offered per week. Each one is suitable for all levels. The classes each last for 40 minutes.

Newcomers: When a space becomes available, newcomers are welcome to trial one session for free before deciding to pay for the remainder of the course

About Yoga

Yoga is an ancient method of keeping healthy by means of a variety of exercises, postures, breathing control and focussed relaxation. It has an instant feel-good effect – a looser, freer body, a sense of ease and calm, more energy and improved resistance to illness. The postures and sequences (asanas) work on all the major muscles, joints, glands and organs of the body. They bring strength to weak spots and softness to tight spots. A stiff body is no excuse not to start.

The Yoga classes have been restarted on site, after being stopped due to Covid. One class is offered, each week on a Wednesday, suitable for all levels. The classes each last 1 hour.

Pilates & Yoga classes are held in the Gym Studio.

Pilates: Mondays & Fridays
Yoga: Wednesdays

Changing rooms and shower facilities are available at the Gym.

For classes that are held within the Gym Studio, which is accessed through the gym. It is essential that you wear proper footwear to walk through the gym. Once inside the Gym Studio you are welcome to remove your shoes for the duration of the class.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows a large degree of movement.

  • Allow at least an hour after eating before practising.
  • Pace yourself.
  • Always ask if something doesn’t feel right.
  • Always work to your own level.
  • Never compare your ability and flexibility to others. Everyone is different.
