Cath Hopkinson Discussing mental Health First Aid

Cath has been teaching Mat Pilates since 2001 and Apparatus equipment since 2007.

"Thank you very much for your invaluable advice and instruction which has demonstrated the effectiveness of expertly taught Pilates.

I hope you appreciate the difference you have made."

Our longest running courses are the evening sessions which have been running in the same areas since 2001.

The following are all monthly courses and use a variety of small equipment (called 'props') to help you get the most out of your workout.

SMALL GROUP MAT

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

We have monthly courses throughout the year - see here for term times.

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.

Contact us for availability.

The Social Side of Pilates

We often set homework for you to practice and this is stored on a separate page and is password protected.   Each term we have videos, emails and other resources to help you with your practice.

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 set courses and drop-in sessions.

The Small Group Mat evening sessions are monthly courses.  We plan a progressive programme of exercise for each person's body and it is not appropriate that these classes are drop-ins.   Dipping in and out isn't an option.

We do offer flexible Apparatus classes using the large Pilates equipment.  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.  We do have a very limited number of apparatus classes that can be paid weekly.  Please contact cath@experiencepilates.co.uk if you would prefer to pay weekly.

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
  • 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.

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 10% loyalty bonus.  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, Spine Safe.
  • 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.
