Farnham Pilates Classes

Do you suffer from back pain, neck pain or aching hips and joints?

As we approach our 40s/ 50s 60s and more, doing the exercise we’ve always been used to can get harder. Our bodies take longer to recover, and we often feel joint and muscle pain. Pilates is a great way to help your body do exercise without pain, recover quicker, reduce achiness and protect against trips and falls in later life. It does this with a series of low-impact stretches and non-aerobic movements that loosen tight muscles, increase core stability and improve balance.

Adding Pilates to your exercise programme can help you stay on the golf course, the ski slopes, the running course, or simply keep your mobility for longer.

We specialise in back care, core stability and women’s wellness.

Our classes follow the teachings of Joseph Pilates but often include beneficial techniques taken from other disciplines.

As I have suffered with back care and hold a Level 3 CYQ Pilates qualification, an award for the best Back Care course 2017 LUX, Best Pilates studio Surrey, Best Pilates retreat 2017 LUX awards, Pure stretch, Fitness yoga qualifications and having suffered from back pain you can be assured that I understand your back problems and will carefully select exercises to suit you and monitor your progress.

Our weekly classes and one-to-one sessions are held in our studio in Rowledge, near Farnham; we also offer relaxing retreats and video classes for those who do not live nearby or who would to do Pilates whenever it suits them.

Please complete a medical questionnaire before you arrive.
