Benefits

Pilates can help make a difference in your health, as more traditional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles – the type most prone to injury.

Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.

Pilates has been proven to help improve many muscle groups for the whole body, which reduces muscular imbalance, a major cause of injury and chronic back pain.

Exercises are not about the quantity of repetitions,  it’s the QUALITY of the exercises, that are safer for everyone.

Pilates is so effective that it is recommended by Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths and GPs.

It’s gentle, Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once in a smooth, gentle, flowing movement, which helps with stress relief. The exercises are low impact and use your body weight.

It’s challenging, Pilates can push you to another level without high impact or heavy weights.

Class Testimonials:-

 

I had back pain with a numb right foot since starting an office job a few years back. I took the bold step to try Pilates, which as a bloke was not a form of exercise that I had been exposed to and I initially felt that this was a “woman-centric” exercise form. However it has been about 3 years and I haven’t looked back. From barely being able to bend forward with straight legs and touch my ankles, I can now easily plant both palms on the floor. Not only that, I feel that my frame is physically stronger and I am innately aware of poor posture. From chronic pain to pain free and the added awareness of the various muscle groups activating had left me injury proof to train and complete a marathon. Thank you Vicki!!

Vicki, you have certainly helped me. I had back pain and struggled first thing in the mornings, bending down and getting out of a chair. I feel I am standing straighter now and no back pain in the mornings. I actually played football with my grandchildren at the weekend which was my aim as I am a pensioner. Your lessons are interesting as you explain exactly what we are doing, which muscles we are using and how it will help. Thank you so much.

I started attending Vicki’s classes around 2 years ago and I have found that they have benefitted me in many ways. I no longer suffer with lower back pain, my posture has improved and I have less aches and pains. Also my core strength and suppleness has improved. Vicki is friendly, professional and passionate about teaching the many benefits of Pilates. Vicki’s classes are fun, interactive and suitable for all.

Vicki is really passionate, caring, and extremely knowledgeable and her classes and support have literally changed the quality of my daily life! I haven’t seen an Osteopath or Chiropractor for over 2 years. I love going to Vicki’s classes, they are always fun and all abilities are welcome.

I have been going to Vicki’s classes for nearly a year now. I absolutely love them. It’s my me time and there would have to be a serious emergency for me to miss a week. I feel better in myself and definitely fitter and stronger.

Having been to Vicki’s Pilates class for 4 months now I have found the classes to have been great for my lower back problems and really helped my core for cycling. Vicki is knowledgeable and runs excellent classes, which are fun and informative on muscle groups and the benefits of each exercise.

Lovely planks.

Having been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis of the spine, I started attending Vicki’s classes.  I have been going for 6 months and am already noticing a big improvement in my mobility. The classes are now an important part of my weekly routine and they are worth every penny. Thank you, Vicki
