Summer Festival: Gentle Flow Pilates
Join us for our Summer Festival classes to keep you learning. We didn’t want to leave you bored over the summer and yearning for your learning, so we’ve decided to hold a Summer Festival where you can continue your favourite class with your favourite tutor or even try something new!

This Gentle Flow Pilates course is ideal for those with physical limitations, limited mobility or those returning from injury. Without mat routines, this class is designed to build on core strength, improve posture and balance and reawaken your mobility and flexibility

If you are struggling with mobility, this course has fantastic benefits. Our class provides an ideal solution to exercise for those who feel they may struggle to get up and down in a mat-orientated class. With a variety of seated and standing exercises, the routines are designed to address the core muscles which help to improve posture, balance and flexibility. Breathing techniques increase circulation and can also help to reduce stress and encourage a more focused mind. Other benefits include a boosted immune system and greater joint mobility.

This course will begin with awakening the core muscles, breathing and posture and will also work on movements to loosen and strengthen the neck and spine, learning body awareness to help reduce pain and stiffness. All of the exercises are developed to each individual’s ability.
Through practising the six principles oPilates (concentration, control, centre, flow, precision and breathing) you will soon start to gain a greater level of physical activity without pain and with a body that works to the best of its own ability.

This course is suitable for those with physical limitations, limited mobility or those returning from injury. All exercises can be modified to make it easier or progressed to make it harder to suit your needs and abilities. You do not have to have done any form of exercise before as the class is very much tailored to the individual’s requirements. Prosp User 4
