Private  sessions are tailored to suit your specific needs and goals. Semi-Privates include 2-3 individuals that are skill compatible having completed at least one private session.


Gentle Reformer

Gentle Pilates is designed for those that are looking for more of a basic pilates class. Anyone can come to a Gentle Pilates class but we tailored this class for those that are returning from a hiatus from pilates, newbies, pregnant clients, older clients, those with injuries, and those looking for a slower pace class where you can focus on form, breath and stretching. Or for those that maybe just aren't up for a "hard regular class" that day.  It is crucial to keep our body active, to have a healthy life for the long term. You will be strengthening the muscles and improving flexibility in our classes, this helps to maintain the coordination & balance in the body. The basic movements you do during class are powerful and give you energy, they stimulate and activate more of your brain to rejuvenate.  

We understand that it is very important to take time to cultivate confidence and learn to correct alignment in your body. Connecting  with your breathing, and the body movements as you move slowly and effectively. Using equipment to help support building the strength, and create space to relax, as well as opening some body parts which are often tense and not easy to release.

*Gentle Pilates isnt restricted to those people listed above. Clients can take any pilates they wish to take. It just depends on your preferences and what you are looking to achieve. You may wish to take this class if you need or want a more gentle class to focus on balance, stretch, breath, form and mobility.
