Matwork-based Pilates is taught in a class situation and is an excellent introduction to Pilates. You will learn the basic principles of core stability, posture setting and dissociation of spinal and peripheral movements in a closely monitored, fun setting. This is an excellent way of adding variety to your current exercise program or a great first step to return to physical activity.

If you are new to Pilates you must start with the Beginner classes after which you can move to Progressive. The Progressive classes include more advanced exercises and introduce equipment such as pilates ball, foam rollers and theraband. When you book your matwork-based Pilates session (classes sold in a block of 10) you will be required to fill in a screening form. For your personal safety a pre-class screening assessment and personal Pilates introduction is compulsory. This is to avoid some of the complications that can arise from performing Pilates with poor form which you can learn more about here.


Equipment-based Pilates is performed on specialised equipment namely the reformer and the trap table. These provide simultaneous support and resistance to the body. It is a more specific and controlled way of exercising where progress is closely monitored to achieve optimum technique and performance. It is highly suitable for those with specific needs whether they be rehabilitation after injury, sports specific conditioning or anyone who wants the edge and enjoys a varied and challenging workout.

To give you the best possible start in equipment-based Pilates you will be required to attend three one hour oneon-one sessions. The first session will involve an initial assessment and you will be taught the basic principles of Pilates. In the next two sessions, you will be given your individually tailored program and a home exercise program. This will give you the peace of mind that you are minimising the risk of injury through poor technique and maximising the health benefits you receive from your Pilates training program. Following this stage you will be able to participate in supervised small group sessions (up to 3 participants).
