When you first start Pilates there is such a lot of information to take in, which is why it is important to have at least 2 private sessions before commencing a matclass.As well as having an assessment, you will also be guided through the basic principles of Pilates including breathing, correct alignment and the proper recruitment of your postural muscles. Even if you are attending a regular matclass, having an occasional private session is helpful. It can help increase your understanding of the matwork. A 1:1 session offers you the chance to receive personal correction and attention to help you achieve correct movement patterns.
I am offering private sessions at Cowes Chiropractic Clinic and also at the Anahata Studio in Shanklin. If you would like to make an appointment just e mail me through the website or phone me 07506 711774.
I will be teaching 2 workshops during August, the first one on Saturday 6 August which will be for men only. Pilates has sometimes been given the label of a “women only” exercise! The benefits of Pilates for men include increased mobility, core strenthening for stronger backs and better posture,improved co-ordination, endurance and functional strength. The second workshop on Saturday 20 August is open to anyone who is interested in an introduction to the Pilates Method, what it involves and the benefits. Both workshops will take place at the Anahata Yoga and Pilates Studio in Shanklin, from 10.30 – 12.30, cost £20. Please contact me to book your place as I do limit the number in class.
You may have noticed that this website disappeared for a few weeks while the domain name changed from “pilatesportsmouth” to “pilatesisleofwight”. I will be making some changes to the site to reflect my teaching here on the Island. I would be interested to know what you would like to see on the site, and what would be helpful. Your comments will be welcome so please get in touch!
