Pilates is a gentle, progressive body conditioning exercise programme that strengthens the deep postural muscles, improves flexibility, and increases strength and endurance. Pilates re-educates the brain and how it controls the muscles by adjusting the firing order in which muscles are recruited. In turn correcting muscular imbalances and restoring good alignment and posture. Emphasis is put on spinal and pelvic alignment and breathing to relieve stress and allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles, developing a strong core by toning the abdominals and strengthening the back. Pilates also improves co-ordination and balance. The flexible system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginners to advanced. The intensity can be increased over time as the body becomes stronger and adapts to the exercises. Everybody can benefit from Pilates by enhancing core strength, increasing flexibility, sure-footedness and agility.By training 1-2-1 with a teacher as opposed to group classes you can be assured that your classes are focused specifically for your problems and personal goals in a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere.

We take the latest pop songs and use modern dance moves to create a fun, upbeat class. The name 'street dance' originates from the 1970's in urban America when dance routines were created outside of the studio, on the streets and in school yards and nightclubs. Street dance is a really good way of getting fit, and we offer both adults and childrens classes. The class starts with a fun warm up to get the blood pumping around the body and prepared for dance, the teacher wil then teach a fun upbeat routine.
