Pilates For Beginners

It is important to learn the basic principles of Pilates when you start doing Pilates. We teach Body Control Pilates method and so use 8 principles that the exercises are built around:

  • Concentration
  • Relaxation
  • Alignment
  • Breathing
  • Centering (core stability)
  • Co-ordination
  • Flowing Movements
  • Stamina

The Body Control method breaks down the original classical mat exercises so that you can enjoy the benefits of Pilates safely and effectively, regardless of your age and fitness level. The exercises are taught step-by-step and are based on sound movement principles that develop body awareness and control.

“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

Step by Step principles are important for pilates for beginners

In our beginner/improver courses we go over these principles in detail. This is a great foundation course to start with or simply continue in as many do as the exercises are simple but effective and can be challenging from a strength perspective although kept at a basic level in complexity.  We have no more than 12 in our body control Pilates classes.

Our teachers are excellent at explaining the exercises in a basic way so easy for all to understand. It is vital the fundamentals are understood and you will definitely get this by coming to our classes. These classes are for men and women of all ages. We check any injuries or health issues before class so we can tailor the classes to your needs and adapt exercises as need be.

We run our beginner/improver classes Monday’s 10:30am and Thursday’s 09:30am

Rosa teaches these classes and has 12 years of experience as a Pilates teacher as well as previous medical knowledge as a Neuro Radiographer that she can draw from.

“I cannot recommend 1:1 pilates with Rosa highly enough. Rosa is a very encouraging, inspiring and gentle teacher. Whilst I started pilates a year ago to help with my back problems, I find it has become part of my everyday life with other great benefits of inch loss, improved tone and posture. It is also a great way to unwind after a stressful day. Thank you so much, Rosa.”
