Pilates Classes - Restore Balance to the Body
Pilates is an exercise system which was designed by Joseph Pilates to elevate, strengthen and restore balance to the body. It is commonly believed to be an exercise system that can be useful to help build a 'strong core' or aid 'perfect posture', but it is so much more than that. It is a good general exercise that is challenging but safe for everyone. As Joseph Pilates said himself "In 10 sessions you feel better, 20 sessions you look better, 30 sessions you have a completely new body".
As a Macclesfield Clinic, we believe that offering Pilates makes sense as it fits right in with our aim to help people get stronger, fitter and more confident in their movements. Pilates can help individuals to develop proper breathing techniques as well as balance and flexibility in a way that emphasises the connection between mental and physical health. Pilates classes are performed in a flow of movement which aids strength and flexibility in the body as a whole.
We offer Pilates classes every day from Monday to Friday, both daytime and evening, and they are all floor/mat based classes. We keep the class sizes under 8 in order to be able to give people a more one to one type session. For each Pilates exercise, there are 3 or 4 levels of difficulty and the fact that the instructor can focus on each person individually in a smaller class size, means that the exercise can be tailored to you.
As our classes are so popular, we ask you to pay up front. You can pay online, or in person at the clinic, you can pay with card or cash. Our pricing structure is based on number of sessions purchased - if you buy more in advance we offer you a discounted rate per session. Of course, we also offer a one-off taster session to see if it is the right class for you. You can book sessions as far in advance as you like, and if you can't make one for any reason you can reschedule it yourself with up to 24 hours notice and within the package expiry date.
