Pilates, the benefits and how it can help you….

 

Pilates was first designed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. It’s aim is to uniformly strengthen the human body, balance the strength with flexibility to restore a full range of movement. It is very useful to help with injury rehabilitation and relieving joint pain.

I run group classes, small groups and 1:1 sessions in the Maidstone area. I also travel further afield in Kent to see clients referred to me by their GPs.

I can help with a number of conditions and injuries, see my “Areas of Expertise” page for further details of what I can help you with.

My group classes are time out from your busy lives.

Group class

An hour where you can build your strength, work on your flexibility. Learn how to strengthen your core and improve your posture. They are fun, sociable and very welcoming. Suitable for all abilities. Find out more on my Pilates classes page.

My 1:1 sessions are a good way to start your Pilates journey. They offer some undivided attention. If you are suffering from an injury or a particular condition, I will design a plan of exercises for you. These will be specific to you. We will work on them together and progress them as you improve. I use a range of equipment, using balls, bands and blocks. Sessions can be performed as floor-based, chair-based, seated or standing, depending upon your needs. I run two clinics from Kent Physiofit in Loose and Coxheath Chiropractors. See my 1:1 Sessions page for further details.

I am also able to offer small group sessions, where you can share the costs between friends, or family members. These are a good way to get your Pilates workout at a time and place to suit you.

I run one-off workshops in the Maidstone area, dealing with issues including improving posture and introducing men to Pilates. I have also worked with special needs groups and run PE sessions at local primary schools, helping children to improve their posture and strength.
