OUR PILATES PHILOSOPHY

We love teaching Pilates (nothing new there!). Joseph Pilates was ahead of his time. He created a movement method (originally called contrology) that helped people heal their bodies, strengthen without strain, improve their flexibility and stamina. It was (and is) an amazing practice and a true mind body experience.

It was designed to create a body fit for life with lean muscle mass, a stronger core, improved posture, reduced aches & pain. It was originally developed for men and soon also became popular to heal ballet dancers. It was accurate, precise and had strict breathing rules.

Joe's mantra was that after 30 sessions you would have a whole new body. You would stand taller, move with more vitality, be pain free and and have a more flexible spine. He insisted that everyone must practice his method daily.

Today we are more sedentary than ever before, sitting for up to 10 hours per day, we have more back pain, text neck, headaches and low energy levels. Joe wanted his method to be for everyone, so we could all have a Pilates body and be free of pain.

We know that anatomy plays a huge role in Pilates and that's why we follow the principles Joe created; alignment, breath, concentration, co-ordination, pelvic, ribcage & head placement. These principles allow us to teach real Pilates to people of all levels, ages and conditions.

The Pilates method has evolved over the years but it's always stayed true to Joe's original method and principles. That's the Pilates we love and the Pilates we teach - we call it real Pilates.

Pilates is now hugely popular but some providers largely ignore the principles and the method - if only Joe could see now! There are many styles of "pilates" being offered today but it's not real Pilates just because it's on a reformer!!

Real Pilates is not about promising you a hotter body or working you so hard that you can't walk the next day. It's not about only strengthening certain areas of the body such as abs, butts & thighs. It's about feeling fantastic in your body, moving with freedom, not beating yourself up.

We believe real Pilates can only be taught individually or in small groups - where the teacher can offer individual attention, progressions and regressions for different abilities. Where the teacher knows about everyone in the class and their experience and level of confidence. That's why we keep our classes small!

Our teachers have trained with the leading Pilates schools and have done many hours of learning and practice. They continually take workshops and courses that extend their knowledge and ability. We only have teachers who are caring, supportive and genuine. We have teachers of all ages and from all walks of life.

They know the classes are not about them but about the people in front of them.

In our small classes you can easily hear and see the teacher (no stages, loud music, flashing lights or headsets). We take your practice seriously!! The teacher knows about your injuries or conditions and how to take care of you. We are always happy to talk to you about your goals and aspirations so we can help you achieve them.

We love to give you variety of classes and we know on some days you prefer reformer and on others you may prefer mat, barre or stretch. & we grade our classes so there's something for everyone, from beginners all the way to advanced. We know you need to stretch, breathe & relax. We also know you love to dance, move and laugh.

If that's the kind of studio environment you love and the Pilates you want to practice, then you are in the right place. We sweat the small stuff so you can exercise at the best of your ability.

For any further information on our classes, teachers or memberships, please do not hesitate to call or email us.

I had never even considered pilates before I took advantage of the trial pack and now I love it. The Pilates360 staff are all knowledgeable, professional and friendly. They manage to structure classes so that everyone from beginner to expert has a great workout

Just back from another fabulous class at Pilates360. The wonderful staff make this place really special.

Pilates360 has something for everyone.  The teachers inspire confidence and have diverse styles so each brings something different to their classes.  The reformer classes vary from beginner classes to more athletic workouts, and teachers tailor workouts to levels of experience and individual needs (including a chronic knee problem in my case).  And with the barre and stretch classes, the studio provides an effective all-round workout.  Importantly, all the classes are engaging and enjoyable; an hour goes by very quickly.  And all of this takes place in a warm and welcoming environment.  Everyone can benefit from Pilates, and Pilates360 is the ideal place for it.

I am enjoying my Pilates so much and have noticed a significant difference already in reduced aches and pains, flexibility and building strength. The teachers are so wonderful and helpful and I have also never been to a studio so clean!! I am so happy to have joined Pilates360!! You have such a fab team!! Thank you!

I began my trial at Pilates360 with the honest intention of just doing a few classes and nothing more. That was a month ago - Pilates360 is absolutely addictive. Sharon, Cindy, Phoebe - all the staff have been absolutely magnificent. I always feel so fresh and awake after a class and whilst there are plenty of times I've struggled (those damn circuit classes) I keep coming back for more. I am the perfect example of someone who will find every excuse in the book to not go to the gym or workout - until now. Pilates360 is a fabulous alternative for someone who wants to be pushed, find muscles they never knew existed, sit up straight at work and feel just that bit more energy in life.
