Welcome to Pilates for Beginners

If you've always wanted to try Pilates, but just couldn't find the time to get along to a class then you've come to the right place! We understand how hard it is being a mum and just getting out the door - not to mention the uncertainty COVID-19 has bought to our lives, with many of our usual face to face classes being cancelled.

That's why we've launched our 6 week Pilates for beginners class. This course is suitable for anyone who wants to give Pilates a try - whether you're pre or postnatal, or just interested in Pilates for your health and wellbeing.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a fantastic low impact form of exercise that focuses on balance, posture, strength and flexibility. Due to the low impact nature of Pilates, it is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. Just remember - low impact doesn't mean no sweat! You'll get a great workout to improve your overall strength and flexibility without the heavy impact of some higher intensity classes.

  • Improve posture
  • Enhance muscle tone

Did you Know...

According to the NHS, Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method, which he called “contrology” – for several decades.

Client Testimonials

Keri has been fantastic with first class advice and support. Her classes have been really enjoyable and challenging as well as highly informative supported by her excellent instruction and very inclusive of different abilities and issues. I've joined her classes online through lock down and they have been great as something to look forward to and be involved in as a new mum, and the community feel of her groups have been really welcoming and supportive which has been even more important at this time. Thank you Keri and look forward to more classes and continuing to get back up to strength.

I am fitter than I have been in years and my confidence (and happiness!) has grown massively since doing Keri's classes. Her online offering through lockdown has been a saviour and has helped so many mums create an online support group. I can’t recommend Keri enough 🙂

Claire L

The Pilates class was my favourite and I plan to come back each week. One thing I’ve taken away from this class is the importance of standing properly. Who knew you could feel so off-balance when doing something you’d thought you’d mastered decades ago?!
