Pilates

In addition to our existing Pilates classes Brian and Juliet are qualified Pilates instructors and can offer 1:1 assessment and advice on starting Pilates.  Pilates is good for general posture, and also good for people that may have previously had episodes of back pain. Pilates gently strengthens and stretches the body, aiming to improve core strength, and balance the muscles on the dominant and non dominant sides.
