Pilates Specific Needs

There are times in our lives when we could benefit from a little one on one quality time. Studio 117 is a quiet, peaceful studio where you will feel relaxed and at ease. We like to treat people holistically, using our experience of working with the body over many years, to tailor make a programme specially designed for you. It may be as simple as breathing techniques, stretches to stimulate nerves, movements to release stress, we want to find what is right for you.

We may choose to use a combination of Pilates and Gyrotonic® or Yoga and meditation. We are also able to offer massage therapy and personal development sessions.

Our aim is to help you feel more comfortable and to improve your quality of life.

Are you maybe living with Multiple Sclerosis, or recovering from a stroke?

Neurological conditions such as MS can be very challenging, requiring one to be twice as fit and strong as everyone else both emotionally and physically.

Exercise can help you in your daily life. Make an investment in yourself and achieve a stronger, more flexible body whilst lifting your spirits.

Improve balance, co-ordination, circulation, flexibility breathing and muscle strength.

  • Strengthen muscles, improving balance and co-ordination.
  • Safely stretch and release overworked muscle groups that may be prone to spasm or stiffness.

Learn to breathe the Pilates way, improving circulation and general health whilst promoting a valuable sense of relaxation

Do you have osteoporosis, arthritis or other age related concerns?

It’s never too late! Sometimes we help people improve their bone density, but most importantly we can work on balance, co-ordination and strength as a preventative measure. If we are less likely to fall over, there is less chance of causing fracture.

We can teach you ways to exercise and stretch your feet and hands, improving suppleness and easing pain. Mobilizations to keep joints lubricated and posture checks to improve your own awareness.

Do you have constantly aching bones and muscles, feel tired all the time?

Movement and breath give life to the body, restoring pathways and kinetic chains. Learn how to breathe properly and re vitalize your body, cleansing it from within. Start to feel better about your body and you will feel better in yourself. Energy makes energy! Discover simple techniques to help you in your daily life.

Is scoliosis giving you pain, or do you see your scoliosis in your child?

Before the age of 16 there is the possibility of correcting a curve of the spine. After this there is still the chance to improve muscular imbalances and your own levels of comfort. Movement is the key to so much, without it we literally starve our bodies. The sooner you learn how to take care of yourself, the better.

Please call to chat to one of our receptionists who will put you in touch with one of our teachers if necessary.

We will more than likely advise that you first attend a private session at either our studio or our Mat class centre at 117.

Private Sessions cost £65 and appointments are available throughout the week.
