BEGINNER TO IMPROVER CLASSES

This level shoud not be rushed! Some clients prefer to stay at this level if it's best for them.
IMPROVER TO INTERMEDIATE CLASSES
For those who have a very good grasp of the basics (so not for beginners) and want to be challenged with tougher exercises. Clients must have been attending classes regularly for at least 6 months. At this point the focus is on increasing core strength, stamina and more complex patterns of movement for those who are ready and able. Many clients will remain at this level and feel huge benefits from regular classes.
INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED CLASSES
For those clients who have been attending regularly for a minimum of 1 year and are ready for even more challenging exercises for the core and co-ordination. A faster pace with more classical exercises working towards increasing stamina as well as flexibility and strength. The aim is for movement to become more flowing and dynamic so the body becomes evenly strengthened and toned. Clients must have the ability to know their own bodies and how far to push themselves. Essential to have a complete grasp of previous levels and know the correct use of breathing.
With a fast tempo and flowing transitions, working towards the 36 ‘classic’ original exercises that were designed by Joseph Pilates for execution on the mat. Modifications will be given where necessary. This is a tough workout leaving you feeling strong and energized.
