I have never done Pilates before do I need to go to a beginners class?
Our classes are mixed ability beginner to intermediate. We do a one to one with everyone before they start a group class. This allows us to establish any specific needs/focus you may have when starting Pilates as well as giving you an introduction to the Pilates language and method.
I am pregnant do I need to go to a specific antenatal class?
At Pilates for Posture we mix antenatal clients into our mixed ability classes. We don’t have a specific antenatal class but welcome pregnant clients to any of our classes.
Our instructors are all trained in antenatal and postnatal Pilates so they are all equipped to adapt and change exercises in the class to accommodate your pregnancy and teach you a safe approach to stability training in pregnancy.
My Dr has recommended that I do Pilates. Can I discuss my health issues with you before I start a class?
Yes of course, I am happy to have a chat over the phone or answer any emails. We always do a one to one session with everyone before they start group classes. During this session we will cover any medical history as well as goals and individual needs moving forward.
