This course has already started! Sorry to anyone who missed out this time. Please keep an eye on my Upcoming Courses and Local Classes - plenty of options to find a movement practice that is right for you!
Functional mobility is described as any basic movement a person makes to perform day to day activities.
Our functional mobility session will incorporate dynamic and flowing movements that will help you to reach the full potential of your body’s movement. Moving through the joints that need to be mobile starting with your neck then shoulders, wrists, spine, hips and ankles. You release tension you didn't even realise you had and provide some TLC for joint and muscle vitality!
Matwork Pilates is a workout done with a range of Pilates exercises, mainly sitting or lying on a mat, making it very low impact and suitable for a wide range of clients. But don't be fooled, whilst you might not be out of breath, these workouts deliver a satisfying and spicy muscle burn. Pilates exercises have a continuous flow that emphasises length, alignment and core activation which is fantastic for posture, improving sleep and sculpting a beautifully toned body.
As the weeks go on, I will start to incorporate small pieces of equipment such as small ball, band and magic circle for creative and varied workouts to keep you on your toes!
Stretching is the act of pulling a muscle from both ends (origin and insertion point) to release tension and tightness. Static stretching is what I refer to as Deep Stretching. It involves holding a position for a period of time which allows your muscles to loosen up, while increasing flexibility and range of motion.
By gradually slowing down the body, as opposed to just stopping cold, we maximize the benefits from your Pilates workout. Stretching isn’t just for the muscles. It also helps harmonize your mind, relax your mood, and relieve stress.

Start your journey towards a more toned, balanced and stronger body. This course works to improve your mobility and strengthen your core stability using a variety of Pilates positions. You will receive personal, hands-on attention from me to ensure that you have correct form and quality of movement in each exercise. This will be a low impact course where the intensity will build as you gain knowledge of how to perform quality movements.
At the end of the six weeks, you will have gained a deeper understanding of Pilates, it’s benefits, and the confidence and motivation to continue a practice of movement.
This course is for you if you’re a total beginner to Pilates and would like to learn from scratch in a supportive environment with others who are also new to the practice!
Or, maybe you have been following online videos but would like to make sure that your form and alignment is correct.
This course is also for you if you’ve been practicing Pilates but would like to return to the fundamentals, perhaps following an injury or pregnancy.
In this course, you will learn the basics of Pilates. This includes:
How to safely and correctly do basic Pilates exercises
True core activation
Individual posture and alignment
The correct breathing technique to be able to use your core muscles effectively for Pilates exercises

During our course, you will receive personal attention from me and work at a slow pace that means you’ll learn the basics thoroughly, step by step. I will gently introduce progressions into the exercises when I feel that you have mastered the previous levels.
In case you are totally new to Pilates, it is a practice that consists of slow and controlled exercises performed with attention to muscle control. And there are so many benefits to brining Pilates into your life including
Improved posture and balance
Increased mind & body awareness
