Benefits of the Method
Pilates is a workout that recognises individual needs and builds strength without adding bulk and balancing that strength with flexibility. It relies on strengthening the postural muscles which stabilise the torso. By correcting muscle imbalance, faulty muscle recruitment patterns and bad habits, the body is brought back into alignment.
Pilates avoids the muscle and ligament damage associated with many fitness regimes and plays a key role in rehabilitation programmes for many sports injuries as well as helping to improve back and neck problems. Its consistent success rate in solving such problems has brought it to the attention of physiotherapists and surgeons alike.
Each exercise is based on the 8 principles of :- Relaxation, Co-ordination, Stamina, Alignment, Breathing, Concentration, Centering and Flowing Movements.
Joseph Pilates method is almost 100 years old and is suitable for everybody regardless of age, fitness level or medical condition.

Single Session Credit - We recommend this option for first time users. Although it is a slightly more expensive option, you don't have to commit yourself to purchasing a whole course of lessons. The advantage is that this option allows you to try out your chosen class to see if you like it or not. The disadvantage is that it is more expensive and you only get 7 days to use your lesson from the date of purchase. This means that you have to wait until the last minute to book your chosen class, which may mean that it is already fully booked if it is a popular class.
Six Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. You get 8 weeks to use up your 6 credits. You can use your 6 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The advantage of this option is that it is cheaper than a single session but you are able to book up for your chosen class up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
Twelve Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. This option is designed for students who wish to attend classes at least twice a week. Effectively, you get your second class at half price. However, you only get 8 weeks to use up your 12 credits.

You can use your 12 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The system allows you to book up for your chosen classes up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
