Check below for more details and to book your class in Hitchin, Letchworth or London.
I'm a beginner - can I come to a class?
Yes! My classes cater to mixed abilities, as Pilates exercises can be adapted in so many ways. You'll be really welcome - classes are always friendly and fun, as well as working you hard!
Why should I come to Pilates?
Pilates works on "core strength", alongside mobility, coordination, posture, and overall strength. The focus on breathing can help with both energy and relaxation. Improving your posture and muscle tone can help you feel great about yourself. Getting stronger makes everything - from sport to everyday life - better and easier. Sounds pretty good, right?
When do I arrive?
Please fill in the New Client Questionnaire before you come along. It would be great if you could arrive ten minutes early for your first class to say hello! Signs will be available to point you the right way. After that, latecomers will be admitted at my discretion.
I'm injured - can I come?
If you are currently working with an injury, please drop me a line first so we can chat through what will work for you. Pilates can be beneficial for recovery from many injuries, but everyone is different - it may be a good idea to start with a 1-2-1 session before joining a class, depending on how you're doing.
Will I find Pilates boring... or too easy?
I doubt it! Pilates encompasses so many things - and it isn't only about "lying on a mat" as many people may think! My classes use small equipment for resistance and balance work, and we apply the principals of Pilates to all sort of movements, both static and standing. If you want a challenge, you'll get one - Pilates is used by professional ballet dancers, athletes, Olympic teams, and sports people in all fields who have learned how much it benefits them.
Do I have to book in advance?
You don't have to commit or pay in advance, but please get in touch to check that there is space in the class if you're thinking of dropping in. It will be £12 to drop in (£10 if you book in advance). Please make sure you either fill in the New Client Questionnaire, or arrive at least 15 minutes early to your first class to fill in a health form.
