Personal approach:

1-2-1-classes-nuggetPrivate Sessions are designed to be specific to YOU.  From the moment you walk into the session, to when you walk out the Pilates is about tailoring a program to your needs.  Each muscle group is assessed for its strength, endurance and effectiveness.  Ever wonder if the exercises that you’re doing are targeting your weak muscles? Or have an injury that you want to prevent from re-occurring? Well wonder no more!  With a Pilates Private Session, not only are you assessed for specific weakness, but you are taught exercises that can specifically target them and prevent future injuries!

Someone who would never be seen in a gym, but want to work on your strength and endurance?  Pilate’s private sessions are perfect for you.  In a one to one private session it is only you and your Pilates instructor in a room, for one hour working on improving the strength of YOUR body and preventing any unnecessary injuries. It may also be the setting for you if you have sensitive issues that you may not want to raise in a class.

Boost your Confidence before joining a class:

About the author

I'm a qualified physiotherapist specialising in musculoskeletal care and I started my Pilates training to aid clinical rehabilitation with my patients. Little did I know I'd soon be hooked on the Pilates method after seeing the results with both the patients and myself! I’ve completed APPI matwork level 1, 2 and 3 as well as antenatal/postnatal Pilates courses. I also passed the APPI matwork examination which means I can call myself an APPI certified Pilates instructor. I lead the Physiolates service and run a number of classes from beginner to advanced level. It’s perfect for me as I get to work out at work! It’s amazing to see the Pilates bug catch onto others, whether they are patients, injury free, sports people or they are just coming to de-stress!
