"I have never been to an exercise class before, however I was made welcome by the teacher.. Who encouraged everyone to work at their own pace. The instructions and demonstrations were easy to follow and individual help was given when needed. I was surprised after a few classes that I actually enjoy it!" P Shoesmith Warwickshire
• Progressive •
Ideal stepping stone from beginners building on moves that you have already learnt at a more intense level, as well as learning new moves. Incorporating small equipment such as the isotoner, the stability ball, roller and Pilates balance weights to help increase the intensity of the workout without it being over challenging for those still developing their skill base.
"I have been doing pilates for 10 years. Yvette is a excellent teacher whose classes are always structured well and include a wide variety of moves. Yvette is encouraging, supportive and adaptive throughtout each lesson.
Highly reccommend" Mrs J Johnson Solihull
