Exercises done on the floor with Pilates apparatus used such as stability balls, rings, therabands and foam rollers, involving all Pilates fundamental movements practised with control, concentration, precision and flow.
We emphasise core stabilization, essential to form the basis of your strength, giving you
support to the joints as well as your back care. You will learn how to integrate breathing, centering, mental focus and precise movement into free flowing exercise. Mat forms the building blocks and foundations of Pilates work.
A step further from Mat and more fitness based, the Allegro Reformer Beds, which to some might resemble a torture apparatus. Looking like a single bed frame with a sliding carriage and adjustable springs to regulate tension and resistance, cables, bars, straps and pulleys allow exercises from a variety of positions, even standing.
Reformer will help you establish increased abdominal stability and postural alignment by working the limbs through an effective range of motion using a progressively higher resistance. Muscles lengthen and strengthen through reformer work, rather than build bulk.
Infusing dynamic, energetic cardio elements using reformer jump boards, with resistance based reformer repertoire, this cardio reformer class will take your workout to a whole new fat burning level!
Jump like a kid again in this fun and energizing group reformer class! The Jump Board is a padded plate that replaces the foot bar on the reformer and provides an excellent non weight bearing method to increase heart rate and burn some serious calories. The Jump Board workout is a great alternative to running as it is much easier on the joints. There is no jarring of the knees while jumping because you are suspended horizontally with spring resistance rather than gravity. It is a fun and entertaining way to incorporate cardiovascular exercise into Pilates.
Combining Barre, Pilates, general fitness and various themes of dance music each week, come slide, shimmy and sashay your way to a full-body workout using the sliding discs. Most of the class we stand using discs with hand weights. You might even sing along to some disco tunes and have fun! Disco is back, see for yourself.

Yin Yoga is a slow paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas that are held for longer periods of time. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues the tendons, fascia and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. It generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.
‘In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference and in 30 you’ll have a whole new body.’ (Joseph H. Pilates)
