PILATES

Corrective pilates specialist with classes to help strengthen core, increase mobility & relieve back pain.

“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old.

 

If it is completely flexibly at 60, you are young.” Joseph Pilates

 

Pilates was founded in the early 20th Century by Joseph Pilates and its a longstanding method of exercise concentrating on strengthening the muscles that support the frame.

 

I teach a clinical pilates method which focuses on small group classes and constant correction.  You will come for an initial one to one 60 minute session before your first class where I will teach you the fundamentals of my pilates method.  During this session I will ensure you understand what exercise modifications you may need to do to your postures to help you move correctly.

 

Its a matwork method of pilates using small equipment such as Therabands, Over ball and the Pilates Circle.  The hour long classes will take you through a variety of postures including standing and floor work, I am constantly checking on you throughout the class modifying as necessary.  I have a maximum of 12 participants in my classes to enable me to give everyone the attention they need and they are held from my studio space at Therapeutics Physio Centre, Southampton.

  

Small group sessions and one on one Pilates are also available.  Home visits upon request.
