Welcome to the Pilates Plus studio 4, where we offer equipment classes, using original Pilates apparatus, such as the Reformer, Cadillac and Wunda Chair. Open 7 days a week from 7am to 9pm, we offer classes to all ages and abilities, in a relaxed environment under the supervision of our experienced team of Pilates instructors. The studio is housed underneath the shop and reception on 4 Crown Rd.
On your first private ‘newcomers’ session, one of our instructors will discuss your personal goals with you, and a postural analysis will be made. This is a private hour and a quarter session where you will be asked to complete a questionnaire and medical history form. Following this you will be led through the basic principles of the Pilates technique. Focus is on pelvic floor muscles, core stability, postural awareness, breathing and stretching.
Subsequent classes will be taken with a maximum of 3 clients at a time. You will continue to be instructed by your teacher, working on your own personal exercise programme. Once secure in your basic routine you will use the equipment to increase muscle resistance, gaining strength, co-ordination and flexibility.
It is possible to continue with private sessions if you prefer but the times we will be able to offer are more limited.
Classes can be booked on a regular basis, taking the same time slot each week, subject to availability or can be booked weekly too if you need to be more flexible. Sessions run throughout the year and are not structured as a course. If you pay for a block of classes you have 12 months in which to use them!
Pilates is a form of body maintenance and is not an overnight cure that will fix your problems in a certain amount of sessions!
It is advisable in the beginning to attend at least one class a week, two if possible. Consistency is key to changing muscle memory and it will forget quickly in the early days! You may want to consider supplementing your sessions with one of our beginners Mat-Work Classes.
Newcomer’s appointments may not be booked on line and payment is required at the time of booking. Please call the studio between 10 and 4 to book and pay.
We look forward to seeing you in the studio soon.
