Pilates Initial Assessment – one to one £60
Clients who are new to me and/or new to the Pilates method will need to book a private Pilates Initial Assessment first.
This session includes a Health and Activity Questionnaire, an Extrinsic Postural Analysis plus an introduction to the Stott Pilates 5 Basic Body Awareness Principles.
Private Pilates Sessions on the Mat or the Reformer £60 for 1 hour or £45 for 45mins
Following a Pilates initial assessment these sessions can either involve pure Matwork or Pilates on the Reformer. Other small equipment such as balls, bands, Foam Rollers etc are often incorporated in to these sessions to assist in making appropriate modifications to either provide support or to further challenge the participant.
The Reformer glides forward & backward on rollers and uses springs for variable resistance for a wide variety of exercises and positions. This resistance can be used to improve strength and control or to provide a level of assistance that allows you to attempt movements and positions that would otherwise be impossible. The Reformer can be used by both new and experienced Pilates participants, those rehabbing from injury or training for a sport.
Matwork classes £12 per class booked and paid for in advance - usually in blocks of 6
