Pilates at Union
We offer a variety of Pilates classes for all levels and abilities. Led by our experienced and passionate teachers, if practiced with consistency Pilates lengthens, tones & strengthens muscles to improve core strength. It is not only beneficial as a form of exercise to strengthen muscle but can aid with:
· Chronic back pain
· Muscle Imbalance
· Poor Posture
· Post pregnancy aches
· Sports Injuries
Beginners / Rehab
Suited to those who have never done Pilates before, or not for a long time, as well as those with injuries. This gentle class will teach you the basics, and start to increase muscle tone and length, body awareness and knowledge.
If you have practiced Pilates previously or perhaps you are a regular, and don’t have any injuries, this is the class for you. A flowing class, taking you from one exercise to the next with control and consideration for your body.
Ante & Post Natal Pilates
During pregnancy the body experiences many hormonal & muscular changes causing muscles to weaken, ligaments to stretch & joints to overload.
Ante Natal classes are functional in order to keep your body moving, yet stabilised while pregnant, focusing on supportive movements and how to move safely prior and post birth. (NB. Attendees must have approval from their midwife/doctor following 12 week scan).
Post Natal classes will focus on regaining alignment & muscle tone after birth. Little ones are welcome to come along too! And you can join us for tea & cake afterwards. (NB. Attendees must have approval from their midwife/doctor following their 6 week check (12 weeks if C-section))
We also offer 121 sessions or small group classes for you and your friends/family using specialist Pilates equipment including the Reformer, the Arc, & the Wunda Chair. Please get in contact with us for more information, or speak to your Pilates teacher.
