Pilates – These classes will be taught at a “mixed abilities” level. You don’t need to have done Pilates before, but if you have any injuries, back pain or joint pain, it’s really important that you let your teacher know on the day, and position your mat to that you can see and hear the teacher well.

Yoga – These classes can be challenging, but you’ll feel your reward at the end! You don’t have to have done yoga before but if you’re new, it’s really important that you position your mat to that you can see and hear the teacher well. If you have back pain, joint pain or injuries, we advise trying one of our Pilates classes as a more adaptable alternative.

Both classes are suitable for adults only and are not pregnancy friendly.

We will go ahead except in rain or strong wind, so please be prepared by wearing layers.
If we do have to cancel the class due to bad weather, we will let you know by email, so please do check your email on the morning of your class. In this case, refunds will be issued the following Monday.

You will need a mat or suitable alternative (blankets and towels are fine). Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move in – shoes don’t matter as you’ll be taking them off!

£6.50 per class
