Whatever the level the fundamental aim of Pilates is to strengthen the body’s powerhouse. The Powerhouse is a Pilates term that refers to your abdominals, lower back muscles, pelvic floor, hips and glutes. Strength here means, essentially, a more resilient system – one that is less likely to cause pain, less prone to injury and more able to move as it ought to

Pilates can aid in flexibility and improving posture, as stretching your body is a vital part of class

Stability Ball

Basically, the Stability Ball forces proper spine alignment. Because an exercise ball is not stable, your body works hard to try to balance itself on it. The perfect spinal posture offers the best balance so as your body adjusts and re-adjusts to balance your spine will fall into the proper alignment automatically.

Performing classic Pilates exercises using the ball adds a level of difficulty that is effective in making you work harder than you would otherwise do. All this helps improve your spinal health and decrease back pain whilst toning the body and working on the powerhouse… Oh, and its pretty good fun too

“Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein

The man knew his stuff!


Freestyle Fitness Yoga

Freestyle Fitness Yoga (FFY) is a brilliantly effective session. We focus on classic yoga postures that challenge the skeletal muscles to build strength and flexibility. FFY is validated from a fitness perspective so you not only understand what you’re being asked to do but also why.

We work to increase range of motion around the joints – specifically the hips, tone up quickly – especially the mid-section – and impart a wonderful sense of well-being. It is not meditative or in any way religious – we do not chant or use Sanskrit in this session! The practice is not recommended for individuals in a rehabilitation phase or those suffering joint issues
