Penni is a qualified Pilates and Yoga Instructor as well as a chartered physiotherapist
Pilates is a system of exercise that focuses on correct posture whilst improving strength, flexibility and balance. It is suitable for all ages and the classes are open to both men and women. Unlike other exercise classes you are encouraged to work with your body and the exercises are tailored to the correct level for different individuals. The only competitiveness is with your self as we all have differening levels of ability with different movements.
Beginners are welcome although you may be required to undertake beginner classes if you are not used to exercising or have any particular difficulties moving, or chronic symptoms.
Any acute injuries or symptoms should be addressed in clinic before commencing pilates.
