How to book/ what to bring?

All classes are mat based. Some classes are intermediate level, suitable for people with some experience of Pilates, others are more suitable for beginners or people with certain medical conditions. If you’ve been advised by a medical professional to take up Pilates for remedial purposes, I can advise you on the best options.

Classes last 1 hour and cost £7, pay as you go .

Places need to be booked in advance to ensure the size of the class can be monitored (either phone me 01568 615239 or email dawn.arkell@virgin.net

If you book in for a class which you are unable to make,  24 hours notice of cancellation is required to avoid payment for that class.

  • Mats and equipment are supplied. Some people prefer to use their own mat which is fine.
  • Bring a towel for head  support and you may wish to bring a drink in hot weather or woolly socks in winter!
  •  Loose fitting clothes  will give maximum freedom of movement and ideally pilates is best performed either in socks or bare feet.
