Seated Pilates - A Gentler Approach
In Seated Pilates we focus on the six principles of Pilates: concentration, control, centre, flow, precision and breathing. We will exercise muscles and joints which will help to improve posture, strength and balance whilst working on joint flexibility and mobility. Through breathing techniques, we will increase circulation and encourage concentration and focus.

Occasionally in class there will be an option to perform standing strength and balance work.

The overall aim is to help you work towards a greater level of physical movement without pain, with a body that works to the best of its own ability. Exercises can be modified to take into account any individual health considerations.

Please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing, and be prepared to take off your shoes. Please have a drink of water with you. Ensure that you have a sturdy upright chair where your feet can be flat on the ground and your posture upright. For some exercises you may wish to use a resistance band or scarf to support lifting the legs.
