Class Size
The Studio classes are small and friendly with a maximum class size of 8.

Class Format
We believe that the best way to get results is by attending on a regular basis. This enables you to get to know both your class colleagues and your instructor as well as improving your technique and well being.

We use an informal approach where you are encouraged to input to the session and be interactive with the instructor. This ensures we obtain the best results for each individual within a class environment, and you experience maximum enjoyment from your exercise.

Class Booking
We operate a booking system to enable you to guarantee your place each week. Classes can be booked singly or in blocks of 5, 10 or 20. There is flexibility within this so if you have dates you can't make, do let us know at least a week in advance and we can offer your place to someone else.

If you prefer to book on a week by week basis simply register to receive the weekly newsletter which lists the following weeks availability.

You can purchase a block without specifying dates if that suits your schedule enabling you to take advantage of the discounted class rate yet maximising flexibility. You can check our availability page to see which classes were available at the last update, but text or ring Anne to check "up to the minute" availability and then visit our payment page to pay.

Pilates

Pilates is a form of exercise combining flexibility, endurance training, body awareness, breathing and relaxation. The exercises are a series of controlled movements using the deep stabilising muscles of the body, which are often neglected in traditional fitness training.

We have four forms of Pilates here at the Studio:
“I Move Freely” Pilates with Anne or Mercede.
All Woman” Pilates with Mercede.
Pre/Post Natal Pilates” with Mercede.
Conditioning Pilates with Kimberley.

For more information view our Pilates page here.

Yoga

Yoga are the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind. The term denotes a variety of schools and practices, the best-known being Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of "yoking together" a span of horses or oxen, but came to be applied to the "yoking" of mind and body.

Apart from the spiritual goals, the physical postures of yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple. Yoga is also used as a complete exercise program and physical therapy routine.

We have two Yoga class teachers at The Studio, Janey and Elizabeth. For more details please see our Yoga page here.

We also offer "Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs" as part of our Back Pain Clinic.

Ante/Post Natal - Fit4Mums

Stacks Image 105900
Exercising can have a remarkable impact on you in the prenatal, antenatal, and postnatal periods. This impact can be both positive and negative, so it is essential that you talk to a qualified instructor about which exercises are beneficial at which times. Both Anne and Mercede are qualified in this area and are Mums, so they will have plenty of advice for you. For more details on this see our Fit4Mums page.

Exercise for Older Adults - Fit4Grans

Like it or not we all get older, and as we get older we are more likely to have problems and/or pain with one sort of movement or another. That doesn’t mean that we should avoid exercise, in fact it becomes more important that we do some sort of exercise. The phrase “use it or lose it” becomes increasingly more applicable as we age past 40 and critical as we pass 65. It is never too late to start exercising but it is imperative that you do the right sort of exercise in the correct manner.
Anne has a qualification in exercise for the older adult. Check our page on exercise for older adults for more information, or if you want a class for women look at Mercede's Fit4Grans class.

We have two coaches working at the studio, see Lydia's or Di's page to discover which one would be right for you, or talk to Anne or Mercede first to help you find the best way forward.
