Strengthen, lengthen and enjoy this fantastic all encompassing exercise class. Traditional mat work pilates helps you discover core strength you didn't know you had. Get stronger and fitter in the safest way possible.
Our Pilates classes cover beginners, improvers to intermediate abilities, as well as specialist classes for those with any orthopaedic conditions. Typical class can help burn 300-400 calories, but more importantly will eliminate your aches and pains and improve your posture.
The Pilates exercise system was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s primarily designed at helping professional dancers get stronger for their performances. This was after training our own police service during the 1st world war and having trained many professional athletes. Joseph Pilates developed an exercise system to help improve our posture and general mobility and strength by encouraging a stronger core.
We specialise in teaching the 34 Mat based Pilates exercises. Our classes start with a standing set up, mobility warm up and then progress onto the exercise mats for the main session, followed by an extended stretch of the major muscle groups. Our classes are designed to flow through all of the exercises appropriate to the level of the class and to ensure the essence of the pilates system is encouraged and learned throughout. We play gentle relaxing music in the background which creates a calm and mindful environment to exercise and enjoy the movements. Our aim is to help you achieve your best fitness and mobility through these gentle yet effective exercises, male or female, whatever your age or condition.
Of all of the classes we teach, Pilates is the most important and effective and we urge anyone who doesn't yet practise Pilates to start as soon as possible. We run a membership based class attendance. This means that as the classes are in high demand, in order to reserve your space each week, you will be required to set up a standing order for the 1st of each month. We will email you the information on request. Each mat class is £10 per session and each session is 1 hour long. We try to keep our classes to a maximum of 10 participants, however occasionally there may be the odd extra person. You are welcome to try a class for free, but please contact us first to find out which class has an available space.

We have been running a mixed ability kids 'young flexibility' class at the Lover studio before the Covid-19 outbreak, however we stopped this class for the time being. We hope to start this class again outdoors in the Autumn and indoors in 2021.
This class is ideally aimed at children aged 10 years+ that either do other sports and need additional flexibility work or need to build self esteem and general coordination.
