A truly gentle combination of exercise and controlled movement to support and develop your body, Pilates can be adapted and tailored to suit most abilities and needs.

What is Pilates

Pilates is an integrated exercise and movement system offered through a bespoke training programme that may help improve posture, rehabilitate injury and develop balanced strength and flexibility.

Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is suitable for people from all walks of life.  It is widely used by athletes, dancers and other fields of fitness to improve physical training and rehabilitation from accident or injury.
The private or semi-private sessions available at the Bridge Centre are structured purely around the individuals needs and strengths, and so can offer support to most issues, but particularly:

  • General maintenance of movement in the joints – hips, knees, etc.
  • Improve stamina and stability
  • Improve range of movement
  • Improve co-ordination and balance
  • Support during and after pregnancy
  • Rehabilitation from accident or injury
  • Develop balanced strength and flexibility
  • Pilates may also offer support with specific ailments such as Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Hip Replacement and RSI

What to expect

Sessions are held in our light and airy, ground floor Pilates Equipment Studio at the Bridge Centre. 

The Studio offers specialised resistance apparatus which have been custom made and imported from the U.S to bring you the ultimate Pilates experience.

An initial assessment will be made at your first session, and a progamme created based on your current ability and what you would like / need your body to achieve.

Comfortable clothing, that allows free movement should be worn for each session.

I find Pilates enormously helpful for keeping my posture balanced and for minimising the pain from arthritis in my knees by keeping me as mobile as possible. Not to mention keeping me trim! Michelle is excellent at giving simple but effective exercises and she makes sure you do the exercises in just the right way to have maximum results.
