Our classes

A little bit behind some I was able to resume teaching in Abthorpe Old School Hall from Tuesday 4th August.
Maximum of 6 per class (spaces chalked out this morning to comply with social distancing).
Online (live) classes are also available through Zoom
You will enter the hall through the side door & there is a table on your right, I will need you to sanitize your hands & provide track & trace details. Or if you have the government app scan in using the QR code.
Then you’ll place your own equipment into the spaces provided (initially you will need a mat, 2m flex band and seat block and/or head block (if you use them).
Classes will run for 55mins to allow for cleaning & smooth transition.
All payments by transfer.
No toilet facilities will be available.
Both doors will be open throughout the classes to provide airflow (so bring a sweatshirt if you are prone to cold), oil filled radiators will be in place soon.
Exit will be through the old entrance where there is another hand sanitizing station, please use before you leave if you wish to.
I realise some of you may not be comfortable with group sessions just yet, I will continue to run a couple of Zoom classes & online or face to face 1-2-1 sessions.
Class Descriptions
Whether you are new to Pilates, are recovering from injury or just looking to increase flexibility & mobility then our Essential level classes are right for you. We will cover the basic principles of Pilates and essential mat exercises to ensure the best results. Exercises & workouts are progressive so you will be challenged but all workouts should be comfortable & manageable.

For those with back pain our “Be Kind To Your Spine” back care class will strengthen core muscles around the spine, shoulders and abdomen. It will reduce lower back stress, improve posture and alignment as well as flexibility & mobility. A gentle class perfect for beginners who are nervous, injured or new to fitness classes.

If you are looking for more of a challenge our Fitness Pilates classes are right for you. Working towards a well-defined Pilates body these invigorating and dynamic exercise classes will leave you feeling stronger & more sculpted whilst strengthening deep stabilization muscles to support other sporting activities. Depending on fitness levels it is advisable that you have either done Pilates before or attend 1-2-1 sessions before joining the level 1 classes. Level 2 classes are faster paced and more physically challenging, therefore it is advisable that you have attended attended 20 x level 1 sessions before taking part.

For older clients or clients uncomfortable with mat based workouts we offer chair based Pilates. This will work the entire body focussing on flexibility, mobility and increasing strength and improving balance. Please contact me for details.

For pre-natal clients, we offer a gentle but effective workout to help prepare you for birth. Using stability balls, flex bands and Matwork we’ll be focussing on pelvic floor work, flexibility & relaxation. These are currently only available as 1-2-1 or 1-2-2 sessions

For post-natal clients, we offer a conditioning workout to help strengthen & flatten abs as well as reactivate & strengthen deep stabilizing muscles. Currently these are available as 1-2-1 sessions

As numbers are limited please contact us to book your place, additionally you will need to complete a Par-Q Medical History Form before starting. Clinically led Pilates is also currently available online please contact Sarah Crisp on 07818 081888 to arrange an initial appointment.
