Body Care Pilates FAQs

1. What happens in a Body Care Pilates class?

 

Pilates classes last 60 minutes and begin with exercises concentrating on body and spine 'alignment' (correct posture), core muscles and the Pilates breathing technique. A warm-up follows with mobilisation exercises to get the circulation flowing, and the body prepared for exercise. The main part of the class focuses on building core and muscular strength, increasing flexibility and joint mobilisation with a range of Pilates moves. Classes end with stretching and relaxation to prevent muscle stiffness and injury.  (Top)

 

2. How are the classes organised?

 

Older Adult/Recovery and Mixed Ability classes run on a rolling 6-week course basis. Classes cost £30 for each 6-week block (£5 per class), or a £6 drop-in fee. Places are limited, so booking is recommended. Please read the Terms & Conditions before booking.  (Top)

 

3. What happens if I miss a class?

 

If you are unable to make your usual class, please call me on 07968 228840. Fees are non-refundable for missed weeks.  (Top)

 

4. What should I wear?

 

You should be barefoot or in socks. Comfortable clothing is best (yoga or gym wear) but should be fairly close-fitting so posture and joint position can be clearly seen. Bring a warm top.  (Top)

 

5. What should I bring?

 

A bottle of water and a small towel, and your own Yoga/Pilates mat and block if you prefer (mats and blocks are provided).  (Top)

 

6. Can anyone practise Pilates?

 

Pilates is an ideal form of exercise for everyone from dancers and top athletes to first-timers, those with specific medical conditions and injuries, and regular exercisers. It has proved to be of huge benefit to both men and women and can really improve your quality of life.  (Top)

 

7. I am pregnant - can I still practise Pilates?

 

Please contact me if you are pregnant and wish to practise Pilates.  (Top)

 

8. I have recently had a baby. Can I attend Pilates sessions?

 

Yes, as long as you have been cleared to do so by your midwife or GP. Please call me to discuss.  (Top)
