Join our Pilates community in a fun and friendly group class. We have classes to suit all experience levels, from complete novice to sports professional. With over twenty classes a week there will be something to suit your schedule. We also offer private tuition by appointment.
If you are new to Pilates, recovering from injury or have been referred by your health care professional we suggest private tuition initially.
Using the studio equipment your workout will be tailored to your specific needs and goals. We happily work alongside your physiotherapist, osteopath or consultant and have a long-standing reputation for the quality of our teaching, receiving referrals from many local health care professionals. Private tuition can be arranged at times convenient to you.
We sincerely believe in the power of Pilates, get in touch and see how it can transform your body and mind.
Please note we operate a 12 hour cancellation policy on all of our classes and private sessions. This allows us to offer your space to another client who may be waiting. A full fee is charged for appointments which are missed, forgotten or cancelled at short notice.

What are the benefits of Pilates?
Regular Pilates practise can help improve posture, muscle strength, stability and mobility of joints, as well helping you relax and calm the mind

If you are new to Pilates we suggest an intro session to familiarise you with the basic principles of Pilates, go over any goals or limitations you may have and show you how the studio equipment works. If you are an experienced Pilates practitioner you can book your class using our online booking system.
How do I book online?
You can book your class via our secure MindBody online booking system.
What do I wear?
Wear something that allows you to move freely and stretch fully in. Classes are done barefoot or in socks and we have grip socks available to purchase at the studio. Avoid wearing belts, buckles or zippers. Long hair should be tied up.
What should I bring?
We provide all mats and equipment you’ll need during your class. We have water and snacks at the studio. If you have been referred by a physiotherapist please bring your notes and any exercise programmes with you.
What if I can't get to class every week?
Pilates does require commitment and dedication in order to really gain its benefits. However, we understand that there will be times when you cannot get to class. Our class pass is flexible and is valid for two months from purchase date.
What if I need to cancel a class or private session?
We understand that there may be an occasion where you need to cancel your class. To avoid being charged we ask that you give a minimum of 12 hours notice. This enables clients on the class waitlist to get a spot at the class. For further information on our cancellation policy please see our terms and conditions.
I would like to try barre but I've never done ballet?
Not a problem! We aim to make everyone feel comfortable in our studio. Your Pilates principles are the foundation for this standing class and we work you out from the feet up. It’s a challenging class but worthwhile for the sense of accomplishment at the end.
