Bring a towel, water bottle, wear comfortable exercise clothing and clean socks. Specific pilates grip socks are available for purchase. See our current COVID safety guidelines.

Ideally, we recommend at least 2-3 visits per week but understand this isn't possible for everyone. If one visit per week is more realistic, then practice at home using our online service, The Mat App. As with everything, the more you practice, the more you'll get out of it.

A group class is not tailored to individual needs. However, we do aim for variation from class to class and offer general modifications to suit different abilities where possible.
A semi-private class is a personalised exercise session tailored specifically to your needs and goals with a maximum of 4 clients per instructor. The sessions incorporate a variety of traditional pilates equipment such as the reformer, high barrel, trap table and spine corrector. Please note, we only offer 'Private' (1:1) sessions on request or for initial consultations.

The most fundamental difference between the two is that yoga has deep philosophical roots. It focuses on uniting the body, mind and spirit to bring about harmony and wellbeing. Pilates also places great emphasis on the body and mind connection, however, there is no spiritual focus. Instead, the focus is on controlled, precise movements executed with complete focus and breathing technique.

If you are new to Pilates and have a chronic injury, you will need to book an 'Initial Consultation' to ensure you find the right classes for you. If you have done Pilates before, are aware of your limitations and understand how to modify exercises correctly, then you can join an appropriate group class. If you need help deciding where to start please contact us.

If you have done reformer Pilates before then no, there is no need to book an initial consultation before joining our reformer class. An Initial Consultation is a great idea if you have chronic injuries, certain goals that you'd like to discuss or if you are needing some personalised attention for any reason.

If you feel that a private 1:1 session would be beneficial for you before joining a group class, you can book a 1on1 initial consultation . Simply get in touch with our customer service team or visit our website. During this initial consultation session, the instructor will work with you personally to assess your needs, introduce you to the fundamental principles of Pilates, and tailor the session to your specific goals and requirements.

We understand that circumstances may arise where you need to cancel a class. We have a cancellation policy in place to ensure fairness to both our clients and instructors. We kindly request that you provide at least 24 hours' notice if you need to cancel a class. This allows us to offer the spot to someone on the waitlist. Failure to cancel within the specified timeframe or not showing up for a booked class will result in the loss of class credit or a cancellation fee, depending on the membership or package you have.

A waitlist is a feature we offer when a class is fully booked. If you wish to attend a class that is currently at maximum capacity, you can choose to join the waitlist for that particular class. If a spot becomes available due to a cancellation, it will be offered to the individuals on the waitlist in the order they joined. If you are on the waitlist and a spot opens up, you will be notified via email or phone. It's important to respond promptly to secure your place in the class.
