We hope you enjoy the classes and find them beneficial – please give us feedback on the class and if you are finding the exercises too easy or too difficult. Please let the instructor know if you are having difficulty with an exercise and it can be modified for you. Remember it is important that the exercises are not painful so please miss out any painful exercises and tell the instructor.

It is also advisable to do a 10-15 minute pilates session daily at home using the warm up routine and 1 or 2 key exercises to get the most benefit from Pilates. Your body and muscles will take time to adapt to the effect of pilates and therefore the exercises are normally progressive over several months, so many people continue to do regular pilates as an ongoing process, much like yoga. Towards the end of the course you will be asked if you would like to continue onto the next course .
