The art of controlled movements
Created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s, Pilates has a foundation of 34 exercises that have many styles and variations. It’s a strength-based discipline designed to work core stability, improve alignment, flexibility, muscular imbalances and gives greater balance and coordination. A great exercise option for injuries and rehabilitation.
I opt for a modern fusion of Pilates and Fitness Pilates for improved mobility, functionality, sequencing and challenges.

Barre is a mix of ballet, yoga and pilates.
It uses a mixture of small isometric movements, low intensity and high reps to strengthen and condition isolated muscle groups. The majority of the classes are done at the ballet barre.
I teach two styles of Barre – one is freestyle and the other is called the Barre Concept Method, which has pre-choreography. My freestyle Barre class is slightly more yoga-esque whilst BCM, I like to call aerobics at the barre! All choreographed to music that you’ll know and love. It’s a fabulous fun class that tones you up!
