  • A body conditioning routine that builds flexibility, strength, endurance, and coordination without adding muscle bulk. Pilates emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement. Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise for overall conditioning, toning and relaxation.

  • Our Evolve class is a step up from our standard pilates class. We lift the level a little to challenge people who are looking for that bit extra. However our instructor teaches to whoever is in the room, so movements can be modified if needed. This class is not suitable for those who are injured, so for the likes of back injuries etc. we recommend attending the standard pilates class where the movements are more fundamental. A reasonable base fitness is ideal.

  • Designed to improve mobility, flexibility and balance, Tai Chi involves a series of slow, fluid, gentle movements based on an ancient form of exercise that has been practiced for hundreds of years. Tai Chi has been shown to promote relaxation and prevent falls through improvement in balance reactions and lower limb strength. The perfect class for beginners as no experience is needed. Join us for a cup of green tea after class.
