Welcome to the Pilates in Motion Studio
We believe that Pilates gives us a greater understanding and sense of our bodies. This is the foundation for healthy joints and muscles in balance, which in turn improves both posture and performance. These benefits can influence all aspects of your life, allowing you to be the person you need to be, for yourself and those around you. Whether your goal is to feel less stiff when you get up, or to set a new personal best in the marathon, we’re here for you.
Celebrating 10 Years
We’ve just celebrated 10 years of Pilates in Motion where our studio has grown from the two founders to 12 Pilates teachers.
The effectiveness of Pilates has been well publicised. If you share your goals with us, we will be happy to discuss how we can help you achieve them.
Personalised Pilates Sessions
One to one classes that are tailored to each person’s goals and needs.
What is Pilates?
A philosophy of well-being based upon a system of exercise that enhances self-awareness, strength, stamina and resilience to promote whole body health and to optimise your personal performance.
Joseph Pilates was a genius and, as he himself claimed, probably 50 years ahead of his time. We teach the original Pilates exercises because they are great tools for teaching better movement but we’re not dogmatic. We have a varied movement practice and we will use any exercise, or piece of equipment that we feel could help you. In addition to Pilates apparatus you will also find, to name a few, kettle bells, barbells, pull-up bars and gymnastic rings in our studio.
