Whilst being an excellent workout in its own right, we introduced Pilates classes to the schedule to give our students the benefits a Pilates practise can bring to their Yoga practise. The focus on core strength and building leads to a real understanding of how engaging your core is central to any Yoga practise.
All our Pilates classes have an indicator of the level and suitable audience in the name:
Open – Suitable for all levels
Open (B) – Suitable for all levels, particularly aimed at beginners. If you’ve never done Pilates before, this is the place to start!
In the Open Pilates classes we work through the Pilates ‘basics’, which are a specific repertoire of exercises designed to retrain the correct activation of the ‘inner’ core muscles in order to prevent/rehabilitate back pain or injury, improve posture and strengthen the core. The classes are suitable for all levels, including complete beginners.
These classes are also great for pre/post natal or anyone completely new to Pilates. For pre/post natal we strongly recommend a 1:1 private session first to assess your personal development before attending scheduled classes.
The Red Hot Pilates sequence is a combination of Traditional and Clinical Pilates methods put together to improve posture, increase core strength, increase detoxification it is also great for injury rehabilitation and prevention, improved sleep and reduced stress.
All these benefits can really enhance a regular yoga practice, especially if that pose you are almost reaching requires that extra bit of core strength!
Suitable for anyone with an understanding of the basic principles of Pilates. This class is taught in the heated room!
