Pilates is a highly effective method of exercise to strengthen and tone your body, with particular emphasis on your “core” – a complex series of muscle around your abdomen, lower back, hips, and pelvis.
Your core is incorporated int almost every movement of your body and working on these muscles can transform how you look and feel. Having a strong core is important for optimum health and vitality. You will leave my Pilates classes feeling invigorated and ready to take on the world.
For more information on the Pilates class and what to bring read our blog Pilates Classes for Strength and Vitality.

Begin your weekend with our Dynamic Stretch class.
The class is a flow based stretch class, where you combine the patterns of Yoga and Pilates in continuous flowing movement.
All levels of fitness and flexibility welcome as each exercise can be easily adapted to suit all.
You will complete a number of exercises (5-10) before resting and repeating. All participants will begin at a station – which has a specific exercise to perform. Once the prescribed time is up, the instructor will ask you to move onto the next exercise. The class will give you an all round challenge testing both your cardiovascular and muscular systems – strength and endurance. The circuit is designed in different ways each week to give variety using different exercises or a different format focusing on more aerobic exercises, muscle endurance exercises to a combination of the two.
For more information on Circuits and what to bring read our blog on Body Happy Circuits.
