Mat Pilates Classes

Wendy offers Modern Pilates sessions which are accessible for all. Modern Pilates is designed by physiotherapists and includes exercises to improve functional movement in daily life as well as traditional Pilates floor-based exercises.

What happens in a class? 

There will be exercises to develop core stability, balance and coordination, breathing, muscle tone and bone strength (to reduce the risk of osteoporosis). We’ll also be mobilising joints, stretching and lengthening muscles and there will be a short relaxation at the end of the class.

Gentle Pilates: Exercises are very slow, gentle and controlled with the aim of improving body awareness, natural strength and ease of movement in daily life. There is an emphasis on developing postural stability and flexibility in daily activities to help us age well. Classes include exercises in standing as well as lying on your front, back and sides. These classes offer foundation level exercises and are suitable for complete beginners and people preferring a slower pace.

Beginners/ Refreshers Pilates: The pace is faster than the Gentle Pilates classes and exercises are progressive building to higher levels over time. Classes include exercises in standing, sitting, kneeling lying on your front back and sides, on all fours and in lunge and squat position.

Older Adult Pilates (Please enquire)

These Chair-based Pilates sessions are recommended for people with reduced mobility and people who are not comfortable lying on their back, front or side on the floor, or kneeling, sitting on the floor, exercising in squat and lunge position or exercising on all fours. The exercises are designed to be done when sitting on a chair and when standing with a chair as a support placed in front of you or at your side. There is no floor work on a mat. Exercises aim to develop core stability, muscle tone, bone strength, balance and coordination, as well as mobilising joints and stretching and lengthening muscles.

What do I need? Please bring a Yoga/ Pilates Mat and cushion or towel to fold to support your head comfortably while lying on your side and while on your back. The towel may need to be quite thick to ensure that your head is aligned with your spine and doesn’t droop. If you have Pilates head blocks, these are even better. These are ideally 2.5cm deep x 30cm long x 20.5cm wide. Three blocks will be needed for side lying exercises.

Covid-19 Guidelines: Please stay at home if you have Covid-19 symptoms or recently have been close to someone with Covid-19 and use the hand sanitiser provided on entry and exit to/from the main hall. Please bring your own equipment to classes. The main hall is a very large space and classes will be limited to 12 people to maximise the distance between us.
