Pilates Classes In Christchurch, Dorset

Pilates is a holistic fitness system that aims to focus on improving your strength, flexibility, alignment and body control. At our Pilates classes in Christchurch Dorset we take the time to develop your technique to help you become more aware of your breathing and the way your body moves. Our small group Pilates classes allow you to focus on your body with the aim of creating flow to the exercises.

How it works

Our Pilates classes in Christchurch Dorset suit all ages and levels of experience. If you’re new to Pilates, we recommend starting with a 30 minute one-to-one introductory session. This will allow the instructor to take you through the Pilates principles, review your health screening form and recommend the best class for you going forward. Each class runs for 55 minutes. We ask that you arrive five minutes before the session so you’re ready to get started (please bear in mind that if you’re over 15 minutes late, we may not be able to accommodate you).

“Since starting Pilates I’m amazed how quickly I noticed the benefits and results. My posture and core strength are noticeably improved as well as feeling more energised. It’s a great workout for the entire body. I always leave the class feeling better, mentally and physically.”

What happens if I need to cancel, can I swap classes?
If you’re unable to attend a pre-booked class, you can use your Team Up account to manage your classes.  Select ‘leave’ the class and you can use your class credit to swap onto another.  
Please note that a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required to leave a class, to retain the class credit.
