I have undertaken additional Pilates training with the APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute), and use my clinical background and specialist knowledge as a physiotherapist to enhance and modify the Pilates exercises.
As well as the classes I also offer bespoke 1:1 sessions at your home or in my studio in Saltford.
What are the benefits of Pilates?
1:1 Pilates sessions
Private 1:1 sessions are available in the comfort of your own home or at the Core Rehab Studio in Saltford.
A 1:1 is a great way to introduce you to Pilates and teach you the core principles before you start a class. It will also highlight any problem areas that you want to work on. The exercises will be tailored to suit your specific health needs and individual goals.
Please note: There will be a surcharge to cover travel time if travelling more than 5 miles from Saltford. This will be discussed and agreed prior to your initial appointment.
Starting a Pilates class
Clients who are new to Pilates are encouraged to have an initial consultation and 1:1 assessment prior to starting the classes. This will include an assessment of your posture, and spinal and joint mobility. You will also need to complete a health questionnaire and registration form.
I will teach you the key elements of Pilates, and ensure you know how to set your body in neutral alignment and activate your core stabilising muscles. This will allow you to achieve the most out of the Pilates exercises and identify any problem areas to work on.
There is a maximum of 10 students in each hall Pilates class, so I can easily supervise each individual and ensure that they are exercising safely. I provide all the small equipment (Pilates balls and magic circle etc.). If you are attending a matwork class then you will need to bring your own mat and head support. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
Pilates classes timetable
The Pilates classes run term time only for a block of 6-7 sessions per term. This allows each class to be tailored to meet your specific needs and be progressed at an appropriate level for all class members. Each class will be different to keep it new and challenging. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
