Joseph Pilates...

  • Joseph Pilates created his Pilates method with men in mind! He was a boxer and this passion for strength and conditioning continued into his ethos behind Pilates to make you strong. It was reported that well known boxers used to train with Joe in Pilates to harden their abdomen for the strong boxing blows they would receive!

  • Pilates used to be known as 'Contrology' and was later named Pilates after Joseph Pilates died.

  • In Joe's studio, he taught the Pilates method on special apparatus. Using these machines made all the difference, helping the muscles and mind learn and respond quicker. This meant faster results! Matwork exercises would be given as homework to practice inbetween the 3-4 weekly studio sessions.

  • Pilates has been well documented to provide excellent core strength and lower back stabilisation which helps prevent and improve back and joint pain.

That's why we're dedicated to all aspects of Pilates and it's traditions. It's not just a class for breathing and stretching but a unique dynamic way to give you full body conditioning and strength, joint mobility and freedom, muscular flexiblility and suppleness, balance, co-ordination, grace and control.

Plus it's load of fun!

Ok thanks - close me!

What happened when Pippa swopped her muddy stilettos for ballet shoes?

You don't have to be a Darcey Bussell or a Wayne Sleep to bring out your inner ballerina! Pilates and ballet have links going back to the early 1900's when Joe Pilates famously trained many well know dancers back from injury.

Take advantage of instructor Ellen's two skills and passions- Pilates and ballet, and combine the classic moves performed at the ballet barre for grace and stability, and combine it with the strength and control of Pilates in a dynamic, fun filled class choreographed to music. A great class for legs and butts!
