The Classes: Matwork and Apparatus
There are two types of Pilates classes: Matwork and Apparatus. Both are excellent forms of exercise and you should select the one that best suits your needs
See below for locations, times and dates of matwork classes.
In Matwork classes, exercises are performed on a mat, sometimes using small pieces of equipment. It's your body working against gravity that provides the challenge.
Matwork classes are generally booked in blocks of 6-8 weeks as a group session, but you can also benefit from a one to one or small group Matwork consultation. It may be possible for me to visit you in your home or at work.
Mats, blocks and other relevant equipment are always provided, although you may find it useful to bring your own Pilates mat if you already have one and possibly a towel.
Contact me for location and times of apparatus classes.
My Apparatus studio is based in South West London. The Apparatus provides support for your body during the exercises using tensioned springs to give some resistance in order to build and strengthen the musculature.
Greater individual attention is provided as the classes are taught either one to one or one to two. You work very much at your own pace and level, but as you progress a greater variety of exercises is given, whilst still adapting each one for you so that your mind and body are continually challenged.
