Mixed Ability Pilates

Our mixed ability classes have a beginner option and an intermediate / advanced option, and clients go at their own level. It is a flowing class with different focuses each week and new challenges combined with relaxation and stretching.

Beginners are very welcome, and we advise if you have no experience in Pilates, you do a 1 to 1 Pilates session before or soon after joining the course to go over the basics for you.  This was you will feel more confident in what you are doing and also, we can see how your body moves and know what adaptions if any are needed for you in a group class.

Pilates has evolved into one of the most recognised forms of exercise today for improving posture and providing great tone, definition and inch loss. It also helps you move more freely in your body, optimising muscular and skeletal function. Pilates expands body awareness, helping develop your concentration while relaxing and de-stressing your mind and body.

The Benefits Of Pilates

Pilates strengthens the inner core muscles so that the outer muscles can work more effectively, thus preventing overuse and potential injuries. By realigning the body with better posture, you strengthen weak muscles and lengthen tight muscles. Strong core muscles, and improved movement and posture, help reduce lower back pain and shoulder problems, among many other complaints.

Pilates is different from yoga because it focuses on working from a strong centre maintaining core stability. ‘The ‘core’ consists of many different muscles that stabilise the abdomen, spine and pelvis and provide a solid foundation for movement.’] In Pilates we use thoracic breathing into the lower ribs and back in order to maintain core stability. This type of breathing also helps to oxygenate the body and massage internal organs.

You will develop an increased awareness of your body and posture. In Pilates we use co-ordinated movements whilst maintaining correct alignment and progressing to more advanced exercises. Stamina and flowing movement is worked towards to achieve increased fitness and well-being.

Client Testimonials

Andy, Wandsworth Common

In November 2019, I started one to one Pilates sessions with Rosa as part of my rehabilitation after a cycle v lorry accident (I was on the bike). I could not walk very well at the time, got dizzy frequently and had trouble even getting down to the floor. The sessions have helped me enormously. Rosa is patient, experienced and works around what I cannot physically do because of my injuries. I have made real progress and have an online session every week. My balance and co-ordination now
mean I only occasionally slip off the foam roller!

Sarah, Clapham

Incredibly, it has been 10 years since I started 1:1 Pilates with Rosa.   It so motivating to have a weekly 1:1 to keep me on track and to learn new exercises to do by myself regularly in between our Pilates sessions.   Rosa is a delightful, very encouraging and patient teacher.  With the pandemic and Rosa’s move from London, we have been able to successfully carry on my lessons via zoom.   There are so many benefits from doing Pilates not least a huge improvement in strength and tone.   I can honestly say that it has made an enormous difference to my life.  I cannot recommend Rosa highly enough.

Emma, Balham

I've been practising Pilates with Rosa for seven years through my two pregnancies and other big life events. Her knowledge and methods have been invaluable to me. Her gentle adaptions and calm delivery are so relaxing. The classes keep my aches and pains away too. Even though she has moved out of Central London now we are still able to keep training on zoom. She is a very special teacher. 

Dr Emma Burniston

I have been to many Pilates classes over the past 5 yrs, Rosa’s classes are the best! as a Chiropractor I know how easy it is to cause injury due to incorrect technique. Rosa’s knowledge is exceptional, she is very experienced and I feel very comfortable recommending her to all patients www.northcotechiropractic.co.uk

Lynn Gant

Rosa’s sessions are challenging, imaginative and never boring – 2 hours just fly by! Rosa somehow manages to get the best out of everyone in the class and is attentive and caring, ensuring everyone achieves their individual fitness goals.

Nicky Hambleton-Jones

Rosa’s Pilates classes really helped to keep me in shape and maintain my core strength throughout my pregnancy, which made getting back into shape afterwards a much easier and quicker process. I highly recommend Rosa’s classes for anyone who wants to improve the way their body looks and feels.

Philip Hartley B.Ost, B.A.(Hons), Dip APNT

As an Osteopath working in a busy practice I fully appreciate the benefit of a strong, stable and flexible spine. Working with Rosa has definitely helped me protect my own back whilst helping others with theirs. Her attentive, intuitive approach has produced rapid and lasting benefits. I would thoroughly recommend Rosa to my patients for her professional attitude, knowledge base and hugely positive demeanour.
