Who are your classes aimed at?
I do work mainly with people aged between 45 and 70 who usually lead an active life but PilatesBody4U is for anyone who wishes to improve their way of life. Many people come to my classes for many different reasons, for example: –
- cyclists and triathletes who want to improve their flexibility
- golfers who have back pain and want to improve their swing
- retired people who want to keep active and improve their range of movement
- people who have been recommended Pilates by their doctor or physiotherapist
- some people come to the classes just for the social aspect
What can I expect when I come to your classes?
Fun, I like to try and keep the classes as light hearted as possible but that said we are there to learn and work. By keeping the classes enjoyable and sociable, I believe it provides a better environment within which to carry out the learning and working. Everyone that comes along enjoys the social aspect, it is a good way of meeting like-minded people, having fun and doing some good for your body.
What can I expect from Pilatesbody4U?
Class sizes are small so I can give individual attention as it is needed. I will help and advise you so that you get the most out of the exercise but will also give alternative exercises so that you do not strain or aggravate any condition you may have.
Do I need to reserve a place to attend your class?
Yes, definitely, spaces are limited.
How do I know if I’ll like it?
Why not try coming along to one of the free taster sessions, details of the next session can be found on the PilatesBody4U Facebook page
How do I book on to a class?
Fill in the contact form below or on the contact us page and I will get back to you as soon as possible
Classes are run in block sessions, can I come along and pay per class?
The reason for block sessions is that it gives you and your body the opportunity to progress. Booking for a term ensures your place in that class however, if you are unable to make a class one week you can always hop into another class during that term to catch up, space permitting.
What if I can’t make a class?
If there is a space in another class during that course that is convenient for you I will endeavour to fit you in to that class or, if you are away for a week, then you can hop into another class during that term to make up the class you have missed.
Do you play music?
Yes, I play soothing music to help you relax.
What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely but clothes that are not too loose that could hinder your movement or prevent us seeing what your body is actually doing. Your muscles and body should be kept warm so wear something appropriate for the beginning and end of the classes.
Do you accept credit cards?
Sorry currently not, but you can pay by direct debit or bank transfer
When can I expect to move easier?
It depends on any issues you have or how long you have been inactive but the majority of people feel some benefit in the days following the first class. Some exercises require moderate coordination that may take a few weeks to get the hang of.
