Pilates exercises are accessible to everyone regardless of age or fitness level. If you want to improve your core stability, strengthen your back, firm up your stomach or recover from an injury, these exercises can help. Pilates is an invaluable support system to all other sports and it will enhance performance and reduce the risk of injuries.
I offer a range of friendly classes in local halls and clubs around Exeter, Exminster, Topsham, Kennford and Budleigh Salterton. I also offer classes in local schools, provide lunchtime classes for local businesses and work with the local rowing club to improve their core stability and flexibility.
I offer Beginner only classes, All Level classes are designed to provide a safe and effective workout for all fitness levels, Improver and Intermediate classes for those who are experienced with the technique and are happy to work a little faster. I also offer introductory sessions and private one to ones for those wanting to get started or needing individual attention.
My classes follow the school terms and the majority of the participants will commit to a term of lessons. This ensures continuity in the group and enables the group to progress together through the course of classes. It enables me to get to know everyone within the group and their strengths and weaknesses and I can take this into consideration when I am planning the exercises. Even though you are part of a group class I promise to provide you with a class suitable for your needs, which challenges you without risk of injury.
Classes are progressive so it is important that the class is able to progress at its natural pace. Once a course of classes has started it may be possible for a new beginner to join the group but it may be necessary to have an individual session first.
History of the Exercise
Pilates teaches you to focus the mind as you exercise the body and gradually improves your coordination, body awareness, strength, flexibility, and overall alignment.
"All in all, we do not give our bodies the care that our wellbeing deserves" Joseph Pilates.
Pilates is named after its inventor Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s.
Pilates is a mind and body technique that will not only make you feel fitter and more flexible, but will strengthen the whole body from the inside out.
