General Pilates

Physiotherapist led classes lead you through sequences of Pilates based exercises that seek to challenge balance and improve mobility and strength.  You work at your own level with guidance and encouragement.  No two classes are the same and our aim is to leave you feeling taller, more toned and aware of your own movement and ability.

Pilates allows for progression and improvement with time.

Classes are suitable for mixed ability unless stated and 1:1 sessions are recommended if you are new to this form of exercise.

Ante-natal and Postnatal Pilates

Mat based exercises using precise movements and breathing techniques to maintain, build and regain a strong and flexible body.

 

Antenatal Pilates focuses on pelvic floor strength/relaxation and reducing pelvic girdle and lower back pain.  Maintaining muscle length, flexibility and control during pregnancy can help you prepare for birth as well as help with recovery.

5 week block (£50)

 

Postnatal Pilates can commence from 6 weeks post birth.  You are guided through the gentle reactivation of the muscles supporting the trunk.  Exercises and sequences help improve muscle tone and stability and prevent issues like muscle tightness from feeding postures and muscle weakness from bladder incontinence.   Babies are welcome to this class.

5 week block (£40)

 

What are the classes like?

The classes run for 40 minutes with a warm up, floor exercises/sequences (additional equipment used where indicated) and finishing with a 5 minute cool down/relaxation.

The classes are taught by a qualified physiotherapist in small groups of up to 10 people maximum.

1:1 classes are available.

We supply all equipment for our classes.

 

Antenatal classes offer a variety of modifications to exercises as you progress through your pregnancy.  Both antenatal and postnatal classes utilise additional equipment to help you challenge your arms, legs and trunk whilst maintaining good posture and alignment, when appropriate.

 

There are lots of changes to the body during pregnancy which can alter your posture, breathing and demand on your trunk muscles, particularly the abdominal muscles.  Classes are structured to ensure you can care for yourself and your baby within a fun environment.

Parkinson’s Fitness and Function

This is an opportunity for people newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to join a group with the specific aim of keeping active.

 

Parkinson’s makes your movements slower and smaller. Day to day activities generally become harder. At diagnosis, there is evidence to suggest that most people walk 30% less each day than others of the same age.

 

There’s good evidence that Exercise Is Medicine for PD. Exercise can definitely keep you fit and functional for longer. Aerobic or strenuous exercise at 80% of your maximum is thought to be neuro-protective – this means that it may slow down the damage to dopamine producing cells in your brain.

 

Having PD can make you feel down, maybe apathetic and like you don’t want to exercise. A good reason to join this group is to meet others in the same boat who will help to keep you motivated when the going gets tough.

 

If you have not done much exercise recently … or if you have never been one to exercise, don’t worry. We will take it slowly and only get you to do what you can. Our motto is start out gently and build up slowly.

This is how it works:

Please book an initial assessment with Hayley Jarvill, who is the physiotherapist who runs the group. The reason for the first meeting is to get to know you, to identify a few things you find hard that you’d like to be able to do better and to take some measurements of your general fitness, balance and movements to help to monitor your progress. This session will take about an hour and a half. You will need to wear loose, comfortable clothes, trainers and bring reading glasses.

 

About the exercise groups:

Both classes start with a warm-up and you then learn exercises specifically designed to help people with PD.
Online zoom classes are also an option for people who prefer to exercise from the comfort of their home.
Hayley Jarvill (Physiotherapist) and Nicola Hunter (Physiotherapist) take the groups.

 

We offer re-measurement sessions every 3-6 months so that you can check how you are getting on compared to how you were when you started in the group. Book your re-measurement session with Hayley
