"What is the balance of body and mind?  It is the conscious control of all muscular movements of the body"

Joseph Pilates 

There are two pilates classes a day in a class of no more than 12 persons.


Beginners are welcome and no previous Pilates experience is necessary.  


The class is mixed ability so you will be able to work at a level that suits you.


Each session focuses on buliding up the exercises using the Body Control Pilates Method.  This one week course is equivalent to a two terms worth of Pilates classes.


By the end of the week you will be able to co ordinate the movements of the class in a flowing manner that will challenge your fitness and stamina.
