Pilates

We hold several classes for all abilities in our lovely gym. We are close to Haslemere town centre and have lots of free parking. Find out more about our physiotherapy-led classes and whether Pilates is right for you.

What is Pilates

Pilates is a mat-based exercise which focuses on the key principles of strength, flexibility, stability, body awareness and core strengthening. 

Over time, and as your confidence and technique improves, the exercises can be made progressively more challenging. 

Who is Pilates for

Pilates is suitable for all ages and abilities and can be particularly beneficial for those with a history of back pain and for people looking to improve their strength, flexibility and function.

The benefits of Pilates

Pilates is more than just about working the core muscles located around our abdomen and spine, although that is an important part of it. Pilates looks at movement and strength of our bodies as a whole. 

With back pain, we may start to move in ways that feel like they are helping the pain but that can become detrimental as they alter our normal movement patterns, causing further pain. 

Pilates helps us relearn ‘normal’ movements and teaches us how to use different parts of the body individually.

Classes at The Physiotherapy Centre

Our regular classes are for up to six people. They are for all abilities which makes them suitable for absolute beginners right through to people who want to progress their technique.

We hold an hour long mixed ability class on a Monday at 9.30am and Tuesday at 12pm. We have a beginners’ class on a Thursday at 9am. 

Classes run in six-week cycles and cost £60.

One-to-one Pilates

One-to-one Pilates sessions can be beneficial if you:

  • are new to Pilates
  • would like to improve specific techniques, or 
  • want to explore how Pilates could help your particular health condition. 

By working with you on an individual basis, we can tailor the class to your needs and work exclusively to your individual pace and ability.

One-to-one classes cost £50 per hour.
