Pilates Classes in Gloucestershire

Pilates is a functional exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century which was influenced by various western sports including boxing, gymnastics and wrestling. All exercises are controlled, precise movements, many of which are used today by physiotherapists, doctors and other healthcare professionals to aid recovery from injuries and improve chronic back pain

Fitness and Wellbeing

Joseph Pilates was a sickly youth but devised Contrology, renamed Pilates after his death, to move forward from his ailments and later he became a professional boxer and accomplished body builder. 

The use of Pilates is well recognised by professional sports people including rugby, tennis, football, golf and martial artists but this does not filter down well to your everyday sports people. The practice improves sports performance, lessens the likelihood and severity of injuries, protects the spine and is proven to alleviate everyday back pain. 

My Approach

My approach to mat Pilates is technical, practical and applicable to every day life with a real focus on control and precision, building real strength and mobilityI provide mat Pilates in the Cotswolds and across wider Gloucestershire in person, whether it is at one of my partner venues or Pilates in your home. I can also provide all services virtually wherever you are based. 

Mat Pilates requires no equipment, although sometimes we do use bands, balls and various small equipment which I provide when necessary. A mat is handy to have but I also provide these for live sessions. The beauty of mat Pilates is you can train anywhere, any time needing only yourself and perhaps a mat. 

Who is Pilates suitable for

The process is simple, decide which service you would like, hit book, or contact me to make an appointment or enquire.
