Classes FAQ


I’ve Just Had A Baby, Where Do I Start?2020-12-01T04:08:21+00:00

We recommend postnatal clients book in from 6 weeks for either a postnatal core assessment or pelvic floor assessment prior to joining our reformer classes. This will give us the opportunity to assess your pelvic floor and deep abdominal activation, provide education and advice on return to exercise and discuss your goals to determine which postnatal class or classes would be beneficial to you.

We offer postnatal reformer Pilates. Bubs are welcome to join us at any of these classes until they are up and mobile (for safety reasons!).

All of our postnatal classes are run by a qualified physiotherapist and are therefore designed to safely start strengthening your core, improve pelvic floor function and regain muscle tone. This is very important as some exercises can worsen abdominal muscle separation and increase a women’s risk of developing incontinence during the postnatal period.

I’m Pregnant, Which Class Should I Attend?2020-12-01T04:10:25+00:00

Pilates is highly beneficial during pregnancy if you attend our reformer classes. All our classes are taught by highly trained Physiotherapists that will specifically tailor your class to suit your level, goals and requirements.

How Many Classes Per Week Should I Attend?2020-09-23T07:25:21+00:00

The more classes you attend, the quicker you will reach your goals. We recommend at least 2 – 3 times per week to see improvements in balance, posture, flexibility, strength and endurance.

I’ve Done Pilates, Which Class Should I Start With?2020-12-01T04:14:25+00:00

If you have previously participated in reformer Pilates we recommend you start with one of our reformer classes. This is because all studios teach their Pilates in a slightly different way and on slightly different reformer machines. Your Physiotherapist will be able to tailor the exercises you are given to specifically address your level, goals and requirements.


I’ve Never Done Pilates And Have No Idea Where To Start!2020-09-23T07:25:06+00:00

Don’t worry, we hear you! Prior to joining a class it is recommended you attend a Pilates 1:1 consult with one of our physios. Even if you are fit and healthy and participate in other sports and activities, Pilates is unlike any other exercise. During this 1:1 we will teach you the basics, including correct technique and muscle activations to ensure you receive the optimum benefits from your Pilates experience. If you are looking to join our reformer classes, this is also an opportunity to become familiar with the reformer machines.

Following your initial 1:1 Pilates consult you are welcome to join any of our mat Pilates classes or beginner reformer classes.

I Have Some Injuries, What Should I Do?2020-09-23T07:25:02+00:00

If you are currently suffering from an injury (whether acute or chronic) or have any other conditions which impact on your ability to exercise, we recommend an initial consultation with one of our qualified physiotherapists. Following a detailed assessment your physio will advise on appropriate classes for you. It is likely that semi privates/ reformer circuits will be most appropriate initially to allow us to supervise, guide and modify exercises as required.
