Group Classes and Apparatus Sessions
Pilates Mat Classes
Fiona's Pilates Mat-work classes are designed to meet the needs of the group that she is teaching, so no two classes will be the same. These classes will help you develop strength, stability and tone. Whilst these classes are performed on the mat Fiona will often use small equipment to keep things interesting.
THE GYROKINESIS METHOD® uses the breath to initiate the core and create fluidity of movement through all the ranges of the movement within the spine. The classes are performed seated on a stool and on mats on the floor. Some of the benefits of GYROKINESIS® exercises include increased postural strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and a general sense of calm and well being.
Open Studio Apparatus Pilates
Fiona Teaches Open Studio sessions on the Apparatus. These classes are designed for those who are familiar with the Pilates Equipment and don't need One-2-One attention. Allowing you to share a session with up to three other people. Each of you will work under Fiona's Supervision but on your own individual programme.
