The Reformer is an incredibly versatile piece of equipment that can be used to address virtually every part of the body. It accommodates a full range of motion whilst working against resistance, building muscular strength and endurance as well as increasing flexibility. Classes last 55 minutes with a maximum of 6 people.


Mat pilates improves flexibility, strength, posture and alignment. With a strong focus on form, core strength and Pilates movement principles, it uses body weight plus a range of props for a balanced full body workout.  


Barre class combines Pilates and ballet for a challenging but fun workout. Moving to music with Pilates principles you will work on cardio endurance, strength and flexibility. This is a mixed ability class so all welcome with no prior experience needed.



This is an introductory level class to the core principles of Pilates and beginner moves, but also moves into more progressive and challenging exercises, tailored to those in the class.


This class builds on exercises encountered in the Beginners level but provides greater challenge with more diverse exercises and an increased intensity.


For experienced pilates practitioners, these classes offer a challenging session which will include some of the most difficult exercises. You should feel proficient and confident on the mat or using the Reformer.


For people who are comfortable with the majority of Level 1 exercises but at a slightly lighter intensity level and easier pace.


You may prefer the format of a 1:1 or 1:2 session where the session can be tailored more specifically to your individual needs and ability. Please contact us to arrange a session.


If you are new to the Reformer, following your introductory 1:1 session we offer the option of a the weekly beginners class and also offer blocks of beginner classes periodically, arranged to meet demand.
