Welcome to The Pilates Centre
What We Do Best
Not surprisingly, we're hugely proud of our full-time studio, classes and (of course) our students. We are flattered that we have won national awards over the years.
We strive to create classes that challenge but are also enjoyable. It's important to us (and you obviously!) that you enjoy the classes.
We also try to promote important health awareness to our students and beyond; whether it is cancer, bone health/osteoporosis or post-operative/post-diagnostic advice and care.
If we don't know the answer, we can point you in the right direction.

What to expect in a class
Most classes start standing up (although from time to time, classes are started sitting down or lying down). The instructor will run through set-up procedure with everyone at the start, focussing on posture and alignment and then will remind everyone how to find their neutral spine position (the ideal spinal/pelvis alignment) and set it in place by engaging the core (we'll explain what and where this is and show you how to do this too with some useful hints and tips).
The gentle, controlled moves that you then do throughout the 45min or 60min session are designed to make your spine want to move; it'll want to twist, rock to one side, flatten or arch (or all four!) You focus on using the core muscles to try to prevent this spinal movement, trying to keep in neutral spine position and therefore strengthen them in the process. Bish, bash, bosh. That's it. As simple as that
Interspersed throughout the session are stretches and changes of position. In each different position; whether lying on your back, lying on your stomach, lying on your side, seated or on all fours, the instructor will explain how to find the neutral pelvis and spine in each.
So, not that scary, eh?
