Pilates Classes

At North Cornwall Pilates I run Body Control Pilates MAT Classes at venues throughout North Cornwall at various levels

My aim to ensure my clients go home after class with a better understanding of their body and how it works. I encourage everybody to carry on exercising at home as and when they can to achieve maximum benefit of what they learn in classes.

Pilates Ability Descriptions

These classes are for anyone who is new to Pilates or older, with some minor joint discomfort or specific joint issues. Adaptations will be provided for clients with specific needs.

The classes will work through all the joints in the body, in all planes of movement to improve joint mobility/stability and strength. The exercises will promote muscle improvement using good quality movement within the joint encouraging the associated muscle groups to work more effectively.

Light loads and, on occasions, small equipment will be used to add challenges where appropriate.

Additional Information

More Class info......

All classes are progressive moving clients forward at an appropriate pace to ensure they are moving safely but improving their individual strength, range of movement and stamina. Although in a class based structure the clients within my classes are all individuals with in some cases specific requirements. These requirements, be it related to a current an injury, past accident/injury or ageing process related I aim to meet by giving variations to exercises and in some case a completely different exercise.

Equipment
Due to Covid 19 from now and for the future all equipment used in class needs to be provided by the client. I can obtain all equipment required at reasonable prices please contact me for further information if that is of interest.

New Clients
For new clients, while they decide if Pilates is for them, I have two loans kits including mats, cushions, weights and bands. These need to be prearranged and available for the short term loan.

Tariff and Conditions

Arranged in terms throughout the year, each term corresponding approximately to the local schools half-terms (so typically comprising between 5 and 9 sessions). The sessions are booked as a block and paid for in advance at the beginning of each term.

A 1 1/4 hour session equates to £9, so the actual amount payable per term depends on term length – A 1hr session equates to £8.00, so the actual amount payable per term depends on term length

If you have booked a group class for a term but cannot make all of the sessions, you may attend any of the other classes currently running, providing there is space and the level is appropriate. Otherwise, refunds are not available.

If you usually attend a class but cannot make a whole term, a drop-in fee of £11 or £9.50 per class may be made with prior agreement. This will not guarantee your place in future terms though – the only way to ensure your space is to pay for each term in full.

Private sessions last 1 hour and usually take place within your home.

  • 1 person £40
  • Additional People £6 per person
  • Other combinations can be catered for if you have the space to accommodate more people – please enquire for tariff.
Mat-Work Classes
  • Classes are limited to a maximum of 12 people to ensure you all receive adequate attention.
  • Classes are progressive so beginners may require some individual sessions before they are able to join an existing class at an appropriate level.
Private Sessions

You may prefer individual sessions to target your own specific requirements. These are especially recommended if you have an injury that requires remedial exercises to assist rehabilitation.

Both classes and private sessions may involve use of equipment such as exercise bands, pilates balls, toning ‘magic’ circles, foam rollers and Weights – all equipment required in class is provided except for Stability balls.
