What are you looking for from your Pilates practice today?

Pilates is a complete exercise system, which since its conception by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century has continuously evolved to include the latest medical and biometric thinking to answer the differing aims and needs of individuals. As well as being an effective method of toning, strengthening and conditioning your body Pilates is also one of the safest forms of exercise available, and is often recommended by GP’s, osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists. Pilates is ultimately versatile and this is incorporated into our teaching at Synergy Pilates – we will work with you to meet your goals and tailor our teaching to fit your level of fitness and specific needs.

To Be Challenged

Why not try one of our group reformer classes? In small groups of only three you get the best of both - individual attention and a workout with resistance. If it is mathwork that you are after then our intermediate mat classes build on the foundations established in our beginners classes with more dynamic, challenging movement.

Try: Group Reformer Classes on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday Intermediate Mat Pilates on a Wednesday morning or evening

Pilates for when I’m pregnant

Many of our teachers hold specialist qualifications in both antenatal and postnatal Pilates. We can organise 1:1 sessions for you during your pregnancy or if you have a small group of pregnant friends then we can set up a group class just for you. Sessions will focus on pelvic floor, breathing, mobility and gentle toning and stretching to support your body during your pregnancy and help alleviate some of the associated strains such as low back pain. Suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy. We also offer 1:1 sessions to deal with the specific concerns of women post birth.

Please enquire: Antenatal Pilates on Saturday at 9:30am

Pilates for Rehab

Due to its low impact nature and focus on alignment and core strength GP’s, physiotherapists and chiropractors often recommend Pilates as part of a rehab programme for a wide variety of conditions.   From low back pain to shoulder complaints the targeted and functional nature of Pilates can help you get back on your feet and back to optimum health and fitness.  It is also ideal for managing symptoms associated with long-term conditions such as scoliosis.

Try: 1:1 Reformer or Matwork sessions

To stop getting injured when I play sport

Are you a keen runner?  Do you aim to spend most of your time out and about playing a sport?  And do you find yourself constantly being set back by injuries?  If so then Pilates could be what you have been looking for.  Pilates has long been acknowledged as a cross-training tool by elite sportspeople such as Tiger Woods, Venus Williams, the All Blacks Rugby Team and the England Cricket team as it helps to balance out muscles and improves core stability and strength which can help you to get more out of your training and sport.
