REFORMER | MAT | ACTIVE AGEING
*All of our Pilates classes require grip socks which can be purchased in the studio.
Pilates Foundation - is designed for those who have never done Pilates before or who are keen to try Pilates reformer for the first time. In a 30 min class we go through the basics of Pilates exercise, the importance of understanding your core stability, equipment used, shapes of movement and breath.
Pilates Reformer - the exercise of choice for those looking to strengthen, balance, lengthen and tone. Reformer Pilates was invented by Pilates founder Joseph Pilates. The practice is on a bed-like frame that uses different weighted spring combinations to create resistance when we move the carriage back and forth. This class is suitable for those who have completed 5 foundation classes.
Pilates Mat - Pilates develops a strong and stable core to improve your pelvic floor, flatten and tone your abdomen which in turn strengthens your muscles that support your back. The blend of strength and flexibility training greatly reduces stress, creates long and lean muscles without bulking up and significantly improves your core and back muscles.
Pilates Active Ageing - These classes have been designed with the over 50's in mind. We hurt a little more and we like to take things a little slower. We have you moving and completing a whole of body workout at a pace more suitable for those of us that like the idea of exercising slowly.
Yin | Dru | Restorative
Yin - Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine, with asanas that are held for longer periods of time than in other styles. Yin is a class that offers a subtle practice to find balance and an opportunity to meditate whilst being able to relax.
Dru - Dru Yoga is a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on soft flowing movements, directed breathing and visualisation. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, Dru works on body, mind and spirit to rejuventate your whole being.
Restorative - A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.
