Small Group Mat Monthly Courses

Small Group Mat Monthly Courses

We have two venues: Great Eccleston and Your Pilates Space, Longridge.

Offering mixed ability course our teaching expertise allows to modify moves for every different body in class. 

We have enough experience and knowledge to be able to do this.

We theme each course by a body part or by small equipment; I provide all the equipment you need.

We only teach small classes and we teach the body in front of us.

Our classes help people who have some form of pain or discomfort and those who wish to keep active and mobile.

These classes are monthly/part month and are booked and paid online.

The Social Side of Pilates

We offer FREE workshops every couple of months where we look at a topic in-depth.  There is often so much to talk about we can't get it done all in class.  These workshops, called Basically Pilates are offered first to all clients paying by standing order, or

We are social butterflies too, and often arrange outings, meals, and get-togethers.

Courses or Drop-in's?

We try and be as flexible as possible with our classes and courses so we offer monthly courses and pay weekly sessions.

The Small Group evening sessions ARE courses.  We plan a progressive programme of exercise for each person's body and it is not appropriate that these classes are drop-ins.   During the course, you attend you are learning new skills and techniques to help improve your health and lifestyle.  Dipping in and out isn't an option.

Our apparatus classes ARE pay weekly.  We understand that you have a busy life, and may not be able to attend each week.  These are our most flexible classes - dip in and out when you need to.

Our best value for the Drop-In sessions is via our Class Pass.  See HERE for details

Full details of whether classes are courses or drop-ins are on the booking page.


Who we can help

We work with lots of different people, male and female, but often the common theme is that they have some sort of pain or something which means they cannot live their lives to the full.

Typically they might have:

  • Back or neck pain - try our specialist Safespine classes
  • Pelvic floor issues
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • General aches and pains
  • Recovering from an illness or surgery
  • Have a long-term condition which they would like help managing

One thing we do have in common is that we are all very social.  We are a lively group, but we do take the teaching seriously - make no mistake  - but we have light hearted banter throughout.

PLEASE NOTE: these are NOT clinical Pilates courses - they are mixed ability classes and we make every adjustment where possible.  However, it might be in your body's best interest to start with 121's to make sure your programme is bespoke to your needs.  Please contact me for more details.

Paying for the courses

We have several ways of paying for our Small Group Mat courses:

  • Standing Order - this is by far the most popular way of paying; one regular monthly amount.  This too enjoys a loyalty bonus and early access to the FREE 'Basically Pilates' workshop series.  Spreading the course fees over the 12 months is the easiest way to pay.
  • Class Pass - this is the best value for our pay weekly classes: Female Fat Loss, Studio Strength, Safespine Pilates, and Beginners Studio.
  • Per Course - Full course payment is made at the start of each course.  You will receive an email towards the end of the current course informing you of the next course costs and theme.  These courses can only be booked online through the booking app
