Come and join my new face to face Pilates class in Southbourne, West Sussex.

In my gentle Pilates class, you can expect a slower-paced and more accessible approach to Pilates exercises. The focus is on developing core strength, flexibility, and overall body awareness in a supportive and nurturing environment. Here are some key aspects of this class.

  1. Mind-Body Connection: Emphasis on the mind-body connection is a fundamental aspect of Pilates. In this gentle class, there is a heightened focus on breath awareness and concentration to enhance the connection between your movements and your breath.
  2. Low Impact: Low-impact exercises, meaning there’s less stress on the joints. This makes it suitable for individuals with joint issues, beginners, or those who prefer a more relaxed pace.
  3. Basic Movements: The class includes foundational Pilates movements and corrective exercises, emphasizing proper form and alignment. Basic movements like pelvic tilts, leg circles, and gentle stretches may be incorporated to build a solid foundation.
  4. Modifications: I can provide modifications to accommodate varying fitness levels, abilities, or any physical limitations participants may have. This makes the class accessible to a broad range of individuals.
  5. Props: Props like resistance bands, stability balls, and foam rollers may be incorporated to add variety to exercises and enhance the overall experience. These props can provide additional support or challenge depending on individual needs.
  6. Focus on Core Strength: Pilates is known for its emphasis on core strength, and this remains true in gentle classes. However, the intensity and complexity of core exercises may be adjusted to suit the class’s gentler nature.
  7. Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Gentle Pilates classes often incorporate elements of relaxation and stress reduction.
  8. Individual Attention: I provide more individual attention and cues to ensure participants are performing exercises with proper form. This personalized approach can be beneficial for those who are new to Pilates or have specific concerns.
  9. Suitable for All Fitness Levels: This Pilates class is designed to be inclusive and is suitable for all fitness levels. Whether you’re a beginner or someone looking for a more gentle workout, this class can be a great option.
