Pilates Mat Classes
If you're new to Pilates we recommend that you start with the “Introduction to Pilates”. This way we can assess your body and what it needs, and give you advice on which classes would be best for you, taking into account your time and budget.
We offer Introductory, Essential, Intermediate and more Advanced classes. These classes are great if you enjoy a group setting and are looking to enhance your overall strength and flexibility. It's preferable that you have done Pilates before.
An Introductory Level class for any person new to Pilates. The course raises awareness of posture, breathing and controlling your body movement. Once completed you can then move on to the Essential mat classes.
This is the next step after completing the Introduction course. Building on the Pilates Principles by adding the Beginner Exercise Repertoire. Also a perfect starting point for anyone who has done some Pilates before but need a recap or its been a few years since their last class.
Deepening the movements to the next level, this class introduces new and more challenging exercises. Also incorporating small equipment such as Flexbands, Small balls, Magic Circles, Oovs* and we even use the larger Stability ball for a more challenging, yet fun workout. *OOV – a special piece of Pilates equipment designed to support the spine
Incorporating Pilates, Yoga & Dance. Pilates is the technique, Yoga is designed to free the spirit and Dance infuses beauty into the movements. An exciting new form of mat Pilates that expands on the traditional method by incorporating fluid transitions into whole body integrated movement art workout sequences that are choreographed to music.
Pilates PLUS Fascia Release. This full-body fascia release method improves performance and decreases the risk of repetitive stress injuries to eliminating chronic pain, regardless of what’s causing your pain in the first place. Perfect for any age.

There is probably no piece of Pilates Equipment more famous than the Pilates Reformer, and for good reason. The reformer makes a dramatic impression when you first see one, and an even more dramatic change in the body when you use it.
On the Reformer you work against spring resistance, which adds a whole new level of strength training to Pilates. The Reformer springs provide support for difficult exercises, thereby creating easier variations of mat exercises. This support means you can work muscle groups more deeply and specifically. Private or Small Group Sessions available.
You can book your Reformer session online – it’s quick and easy!
“I love my weekly Pilates Reformer and Mat Sessions with Alanie for so many reasons..........I love the discipline; I love the strength it helps me create; I love the 'team' vibe in the studio; and more than anything I love learning the correct techniques from Alanie to make each session better and stronger. Thanks for creating such an awesome environment Alanie........and thank you for being so honest with your counting to one hundred” Rachael Paine
The OOV strengthens the core without the conscious thought demanded by other core training techniques. OOV training enables elite athletes to perform at their peak, yet it’s gentle enough for rehabilitation of a recent injury or operation. The first step in using the OOV is to develop the ability to balance on it. From there, a wide range of movements are introduced to challenge and strengthen the core muscles.
