“The promise of change through Pilates”
PROMISE PILATES CLASSES
Promise Pilates Classes are mat based workouts for mixed abilities.
Whether you are a beginner or at a progressive level with your Pilates, you are most welcome!
The classes have a limited number of participants, this is to ensure I am able to give a good level of attention to each person and the opportunity for corrections to be made to maximise your Pilates experience.
Because of the limited spaces available, you will need to book in advance of the classes and pre-payment made.
Before commencing Promise Pilates classes, you will need to fill out a health questionnaire (Par-Q), this can be done upon arrival of the class but it is advisable to take some time over filling this out, so a downloadable version is available here for you to print off, fill out and bring with you to your first class. If you intend to participate in an online class, you will need to fill out the ParQ form and send it to me digitally.Download PAR.Q Form »
A free 30 minute consultation is available via Zoom, to go though the Par-Q before joining either an in-hall or online class.
*Class schedule may alter on bank holidays.
Promise Pilates ‘Pure’ classes are 55 minutes of classical mat based workouts that focus on developing core strength, flexibility and strengthening of the stabiliser muscles. The exercises are inspired by the original Pilates method, broken down into individual sets, allowing the participant to fully engage and understand the movements and master the techniques.
A mindful approach to the practice is advised to get the most from the session, with a backdrop of calming ambient music helping the participant to focus on their body and coordination of the movements being performed. Different versions and levels of each exercise will be demonstrated for you to chose from and alternative options can be prescribed to individuals with specific needs.

Pilates Barre is a low impact session, yet much higher intensity than the Pure Pilates sessions. It is a full body workout, at an intermediate to progressive level, so a good base level of fitness, without contra-indicatory injury, is required.
Emphasis is on strengthening both the large prime mover muscles and the smaller stabiliser muscles of the legs, hips & buttocks, core and upper body with minimal equipment.
Taking inspiration from Pilates, Ballet and bodyweight exercises for an all over toning & deep stretch workout.
The session is instructor lead, rather than a teaching session.

PRIVATE 1-2-1 PILATES SESSIONS
If you feel you would benefit from a more personalised Pilates regime then private sessions are available in person and online. These are a very good idea if you have special medical conditions or certain physical issues that would not suit your joining a class. You can work at your own pace and have 100% attention, ensuring you get every move right and therefore the most benefit from each exercise.
If you are able to join one of the classes it is still a great idea to have a one off private Pilates session before joining, especially if you have never done Pilates before, that way you have an understanding of the basic principles of Pilates in order to get the most out of your classes once you join one and less likely to feel overwhelmed or confused during the sessions.
Private 1-2-1 and small group sessions are held at your home or online.
*Prices upon enquiry.
EQUIPMENT & CLOTHING
The most basic equipment you will need for a Promise Pilates class is a Pilates mat, small towel and a drink of water. Wear comfortable clothing that is not bulky, such as leggings and a slim fitting top that won’t ‘ride up’ during movement. Layers are best too, as your temperature may fluctuate. Your clothing needs to have enough stretch in it to move without restriction, so make sure trousers &/or shorts have elastane in them. Pilates is done with bare feet, or if you prefer to wear socks make sure they are specific for Pilates and have tacky soles to create grip.
Other equipment used are – blocks, straps, bands, Pilates balls, small dumbbells and padding.
Equipment can be purchased through Promise Pilates.
