As a registered charity we endeavour to ensure that all of our classes are competitively priced. Prices have been able to remain unchanged for over three years however following our latest review it is necessary to apply a small increase of £1.00 to all classes. This change will apply to all classes from 1st January 2019.
Please bear in mind, future block bookings of Pilates will now be charged at the new price if the classes take place in 2019. Thank you for your understanding

Our Modified Beginners class is suitable for those who want to work at their own pace in a gentle, relaxed and friendly class. Exercises can be modified to accommodate limitations due to chronic low back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, or any other restrictions.
This class is performed at a slower pace and can help to improve and optimise posture and gait, is gentle on vulnerable joints and focuses on strengthening the deep abdominal muscles, known as the core muscles, restoring muscle length, improving flexibility and balance giving confidence for everyday activities.
Specially formulated for those who would like to exercise, but feel intimidated by the pace and demands of other Pilates classes. The class aims to get all participants to reach an Intermediate level of Pilates.
Please note that before commencing our Beginners class you will be required to attend an Introduction to Pilates.
This class includes completion of a Pilates Registration form which gives us brief details of your current and past medical history to ensure you are suitable for the class. If, on the rare occasion, you are not suitable for the Pilates class we may be able to offer you an alternative class at Horder Healthcare.
We will then cover the 5 key elements of Pilates which are the foundations to your Pilates exercises. You will be given an information leaflet on the 5 key elements to practice at home. There's a video below that covers this topic.
It is important you are familiar with these elements before commencing your classes to get the most out of the exercises and to ensure you exercise safely and within your limits of discomfort.
