Pilates is a series of mat based exercises designed by Joseph Pilates in the late 1920s.The exercises strengthen the body by emphasizing balance, alignment, proper breathing and core stability.

Barre Fitness

Shape & Tone your body whilst improving posture and joint stability. A low impact exercise that can really deliver results!


Barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like Yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements.  Classes also incorporate light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.

Circuits

A series of exercise stations to challenge your strength & stamina

Circuit training is a fast-paced class in which you do one exercise for 45 seconds to 1 minute and then move on to another exercise. Sessions include aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercises.


Our circuits are completely adaptable to the individual. Beginners use less weight and perform simpler moves than more-experienced exercisers, but everyone gets a good workout.


Circuit classes combine a strength and aerobic routine in one workout for anyone who wants a really fun and fast-paced workout.

Yoga

Through the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), you will stretch, align and calm your body.

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.


Many people think they need to be flexible to practice yoga, but that's a bit like thinking you need to be able to ride a horse before taking riding lessons! Instead, yoga helps you lead a more flexible life.


Yoga provides you with an opportunity to switch off from the stresses of daily life as well as improve your physical strength, co-ordination, balance and cardiovascular health. Classes also encourage relaxation, enhance feelings of wellbeing, and help you to feel more emotionally and spiritually connected.  


Classes flow steadily with a focus on synchronising movement with the breath. They help you to develop your awareness so you have time to slow down, tune inward and focus on maintaining proper alignment.


As you develop your practice, you will have the opportunity to explore the far-reaching benefits that simply bending, breathing and being can bring you.
