Pilates can be taught in classes or on a one-to-one basis.
My classes are in and around the Bisley and Woking areas, but my one-to-one classes can take me anywhere! I can do them at one of my venues or in your own home or even your place of work if you wanted!
In a class there can be around 12 people, any age, any sex. Around 12 is the safest number to teach in a class as to many would be hard to check alignments and to make sure the exercises are being done safely and as correctly as possible.
Each week can be the same, slightly different or completely different. Sometime I may have clients who message me to ask if we can work on a specific area and I try incorporate it in class. If it benefit’s one, it benefit’s all!
The exercises can be standing, on all fours, lying on your front or back and on your side. I try to do a mixture to work the whole body. The exercises can also incorporate the use of stretchy bands, balls, and toning circles.
I have often been asked if I teach beginners Pilates classes. Well, if you have never done Pilates before then I would need recommend at least one private session. In this I will do an assessment of you, look at body issues and highlight problem areas and show you a selection of basic exercises that I will teach you, then get you to do. This usually takes about an hour and 15 minutes.
I am also willing to do 2 or maybe 3 at a time though this would take longer and be costed accordingly.
Once you have completed an assessment one-to-one we can make a mutual decision as to whether you can join our Pilates classes. I am usually happy for this, but it has to be your decision too.
When you join our Pilates classes I would place you nearest me in the room and you would do a selection of exercises that everyone is doing and a selection of ones just for you.
Everyone works at their own pace, everyone has different strengths and flexibilities so even if I did run a separate beginners class, at the end of a four week period all the class would be a different levels anyway. So I am happy for my ‘newbies’ to join existing Pilates classes, all my clients are lovely and welcome any newcomers very warmly. Everyone was a beginner once!!
I live in Bisley and did my training with Body Control in London and I am qualified Intermediate Matwork instructor.
I have also completed courses in Pilates for the Elderly, Pilates for Multiple Sclerosis, Standing Pilates, and Pilates with Small equipment (balls, stretchy bands, toning circles, small balls and baby arc).
