FAQ

What should I wear and bring to my Pilates class?

Please wear clothing that will allow you to move freely but that isn’t too baggy as I will be looking at your alignment during the session.

You can exercise in bare feet or socks with grips on the soles (with toes or without).

If you have your own mat, please feel free to bring that along. If you are thinking about buying your own mat, a 15mm Pilates mat is better than a thin yoga mat, as it is designed to cushion you during the specific Pilates exercises.

Please make sure you download and complete the Health Questionnaire which you can download from the classes page.

Also, a bottle of water is great to keep you hydrated throughout.

I have a bad back ... can Pilates fix it?

Pilates can work wonders for generalised back pain caused by our sedentary lifestyles.

It is also great when used for rehabilitation after an operation or injury. However, if this is the case, you may benefit from some one-to-one sessions to address your specific issues. The class is more of a general workout rather than a specific programme for individual issues.

How much does it cost?

Due to the limited number of places per class, I am charging ‘per term’ so depending on how many weeks there are in the term, the cost upfront will change but it is based on £7 per class for Bodicote and Kings Sutton classes and £9 per class for Adderbury Tennis Club as the class size is much smaller.

This will be non-refundable and payable upfront in order to reserve your place.

Why are class sizes limited?

Pilates is a very precise and controlled exercise method and correct body alignment is key to getting the most out of your Pilates practice. Therefore, class sizes have to be limited so I can check and adjust you individually during the exercises, if you need it.

Also some venues allow more participants than others.

I'm a total beginner or I haven't done Pilates for ages ... is it still okay to join a class?

All my classes are mixed ability and so the exercises are offered with different layers to suit all different abiities.

Please watch the beginners videos on my youtube channel, which will help explain some of the fundamentals so you can feel more confident for your first class:
