Pilates equipment classes
Pilates equipment classes usually take place within a specialised Pilates studio, using custom-designed equipment. The equipment differs from that found in a typical gym in that it is designed to either add challenge or to assist in performing Pilates exercises and is thus suitable for a wide range of people.
Pilates equipment uses springs rather than weights, as these tend to be more supportive and versatile in use, encouraging the lengthening of muscles rather than building bulk.
Equipment classes are either one-to-one or in small groups. The exercises are specific to the needs of the individual client and will vary from session to session, with each person doing different exercises. That way, each client can progress at their own pace and work on the areas of most relevance to themselves. Equipment sessions are therefore highly recommended for anyone wanting to work on specific issues, rehabilitate from injury or receive individual guidance.
I teach the following equipment classes every week:
Mon 10:00 - 11:15 Yogaloom Muswell Hill (60/75 min group class)
Tue 12:00 - 16:00 Triyoga Camden (60 min private classes)
Tue 17:00 - 21:00 Eternite Pilates, Golders Green (60 min group classes)
Pilates matwork classes
Matwork classes use minimal equipment (typically just a mat, or sometimes a few small portable items). They can be one-to-one, in small groups, or for large groups, depending on the location and the requirements of the participants. Some studios run simultaneous in-person and online matwork classes, so you can attend in the way that suits you best.
In a matwork class, participants follow the instructions and demonstrations of the teacher. Classes are typically either 60 or 75 minutes in length and consist of a variety of exercises selected from the Pilates repertoire.
In addition to studio-based classes, I can teach matwork classes at your home - for example when there is a specialised requirement such as rehabilitation after surgery or injury. The cost is from £70 per hour (depending on location). Please get in contact if you would like more information or wish to book a private matwork class.

Sun 15:30 - 16:45 Triyoga Camden
Mon 13:00 - 14:00 PilatesTree, Kentish Town (online only)
