Jumpboard

It doesn't matter if you are new to Pilates, a Jumpboard class could be just what you need to add to your weekly routine. The Jumpboard is an attachment that converts a reformer into a horizontal jumping machine. It fixes to the front of the reformer where the footbar is. While lying with your back on the carriage you can adjust the spring tension and jump on the board as if it were the floor. The spring tension takes gravity out of the equation, so it feels like you are jumping on the moon!

What's not to like! This fun, furious workout is a high intensity body conditioning class which brings a cardiovascular element to the timetable. Barre work combines the technique of Pilates and Yoga, and adds resistance training into a highly effective regime performed at a barre and on the mat. This low impact fitness craze gives you a total body workout, toning the thighs, flattening the abs and sculpting the arms whilst protecting the joints. Bring water...you'll need it!!

Pilates is often thought of as an exercise programme for women. However, the Pilates method was created by a man, Joseph Pilates, whose main students when he first started to teach, were male. Many athletes also practise the Pilates method to enhance their sporting activity.

Back Care

Back1.jpg

As Pilates has benefits of elongating the spine and aligning it with the pelvis, hips, legs, feet, shoulders and head, this specialised class will help to prevent slouching and focus on posture and spinal decompression. If you have been diagnosed with Osteopenia or Osteoporosis and you would like to join a Pilates class, it is important to attend a specifically tailored class to suit your needs so that contraindicated movements are avoided. Private sessions are also available to offer more help and support if needed.

Yoga

The postures and breathing combination used in our Yoga Classes stretch and tone muscles improving flexibility. The joints are opened which increases suppleness and range of movement and blockages in our energy pathways are released, transforming tension and stress into relaxation and energy.
