We offer classes for all levels and it's essential that all clients start with a Beginners class to ensure that they learn the basics before progressing to more advanced levels.
Beginners – designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts and principles of the Pilates Method. This involves learning and practising core strength awareness, muscular flexibility, joint mobility and postural alignment.
Improvers (Level 2) - once you have established an understanding of the method, we aim to challenge you by teaching a flowing practice. These classes focus on improving your awareness of your personal strengths and weaknesses so you can refine and progress.
Yogalates – a Hybrid class incorporating yoga and Pilates open to all levels. A class that fuses the dynamic elements of yoga with the stabilising and strengthening elements of pilates practice. This class is designed for those that want to be a little more physically active and incorporates standing strength work and Yogic Sun salutations in addition to Pilates matwork based exercises
Antenatal pilates –This class is offered to women at all stages of pregnancy. The class aims to get you 'baby fit' and focuses specifically on the needs of 'mothers to be' taking into account changes in posture, pelvic floor work and strength needs for when the little ones comes along

I started the Pilates classes while five months pregnant and found it great to strengthen my abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Of course I kept it up after the birth and have remained going ever since! As it was the only exercise I did, I'm convinced it helped me lose my "baby weight" and regain my shape in a short time. I find it very relaxing and a real switch off for one hour every week. It's great to be able to attend other evenings if you miss your scheduled class and all the instructors are easy going and very good at their job!!
The Pilates class helps to improve my overall flexibility, tone up and strengthen my core muscles and relieve stiffness in my lower back. As I get older, the routine of sitting at a desk and computer all day is starting to affect me. The mobility I took for granted five or so years ago now has to be positively worked on, and the Pilates class is an ideal way of doing this. The flexibility of the classes is great too so, if I miss the class on my usual evening, I can make it up another time. The teachers have slightly varied styles, which is interesting and are enthusiastic and encouraging in their approach.
With a desk job that involves sitting for 8 hours a day I wanted Pilates to help restore some flexibility to my body. Poor posture had led to an ongoing weakness in my neck, and Pilates has helped no end in making me feel stronger and more in tone. Not to mention the core body work that's improved my midrif! The classes are very relaxed, and if you miss one you can make it up no problem.
After years of suffering repeated bouts of lower back pain and sciatica, I had tried every possible remedy from the chiropractor to the osteopath from the acupuncturists' needle to the surgeon's knife. The last specialist I saw recommended that I should take up Pilates. He said it was the best thing to do to improve core stability ,which would reduce the risk of my back problems recurring.
I have been going along to Kelly's sessions at the Space for the last four years and I find it really beneficial, especially as I am desk bound for most of the day and I am a tall fellow with limited (but improving!) flexibility. It's certainly not just for the ladies and I even remember one historic class where the chaps out-numbered the girls. You never feel silly, you work at your own pace and you do what's right for you. I can highly recommend it.
