DIFFERENT CLASSES

Mat Class: Mat classes are a great introduction to Pilates with a goal to improve general fitness, and is suitable for all ages. We aim to improve your core stability, muscle strength, and control through exercise, posture control, and stretching on the mats. Your body weight is used as the primary source of resistance, however, you may also use equipment such as swiss balls, Pilates balls, and foam rollers.


Small-prop Pilates class: Our small-prop class focuses on releasing the tension from the tight muscles of your body. From stiff necks and backs to tight calves and hamstrings, this class is catered towards athletes, labourers, and those who exercise regularly. Trigger points within the muscles will be explored and the tension found will be released through various techniques and stretches.  This class utilises a broad range of equipment, including spiky balls, foam rollers, spikey rollers, towels, resistance bands, and other similar tools to get into the superficial and deeper muscles.


Reformer Class: Reformer class utilises the Pilates reformer machine, and is generally more dynamic than mat based Pilates as it incorporates resistance from the use of springs. This allows a variety of different exercises that can target different muscle groups where the general mat class cannot. The resistance of the springs can be altered from light to strong, which allows for different purposes, such as rehabilitation after injury and beginners to higher level more advanced workouts.


SPECIALISED PILATES CLASS

Clinical Pilates: This class size ranges from a one-on-one session to a one-to-four class. Clinical Pilates focuses on posture, breathing, core stability, flexibility, strength, and control. This class is often used in conjunction with physiotherapy treatment to manage any injuries.  Equipment such as foam rollers, gym balls, and pilates balls are used throughout the classes.  What differentiates Clinical Pilates from the other styles is how it specifically targets the everyone's individual needs, whether it be for early rehabilitation of an acute injury or for high-level return-to-sport rehabilitation. As it is tailored to each person's needs, it is suitable for all skill levels.
