Join Lauren Wolfe (Senior Physiotherapist & Pilates instructor) online Tuesday morning from the comfort of your own home via zoom link for a 60 minute Pilates class. This is aimed at all levels and we sometimes use small equipment e.g. light weights and resistance bands to add an extra challenge.
1-2-1 classes take place face-to-face at our South Kensington clinic in Kendrick Mews and are bespoke sessions aimed to improved your mental & physical health. With close supervision and facilitation these sessions really do help you get the most out of your body and achieve your physical goals.
We also offer 1:2 or 1:3 small group classes so if you want to come with a family member or friend we can facilitate this.
What is pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on core strength and general fitness, with the added benefit of helping to reduce stress.
