PLEASE NOTE: All reformer, studio and mat classes on the schedule have descriptions on the booking system.
Pilates is a progressive exercise program. It is essential to learn the principles first, layering in the exercises in stages. Once confident and strong with the beginning and movements, the time would be right to progress. Muscles build from the centre out and the whole system works with breath, the breathing the most essential principle to master.
You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions and have a whole new body in 30 sessions
