Pilates for Beginners

It can be daunting getting started with something new, but we’ll be sure to make the start of your Pilates journey welcoming and enjoyable.

We run our classes by level, so you’ll never feel out of your depth, and you’ll find plenty of beginners-specific sessions on our weekly timetable.

There’s no need to commit if you’re just wanting to dip your toe in the water. We’ve got plenty of pass options, so you’re sure to find one that suit your needs.

We even run Fundamentals sessions, that give you a taste of different types of Pilates all while giving you the underlying principles to make you feel right at home in your Pilates practice.

Timed perfectly for your New Year's Resolutions, we'll be starting five brand new weekly beginners classes in January:

Tuesdays 8.45am Beginner Mat with Alice
Wednesdays 6pm Beginner Mat with Alice
Thursdays 8.45am Beginner Mat with Alice
Thursdays 7.15pm Beginner Mat with Alice
Saturdays 9am Beginner Mat with Charlotte

And even better, we'll be running all five of these classes for free for their first week (commencing 7th Jan).

Mat

We have more than 20 weekly group Mat classes with something for every level. If you’re not sure which class is best for you we are happy to help. We have a full range of small equipment to support and challenge you - balls, bands, fitness circles, spine correctors, arc barrels and foam rollers. Our classes are friendly and sociable, everyone is welcome.

Try our Seated Pilates class on Fridays if you find it tricky getting down to a mat on the floor, whether through reduced mobility, poor balance, or post-op. A friendly, inclusive class for all ages, and do stay for tea and a chat if you’d like to. (Scroll down for photo.)


Equipment

Our affordable Reformer Pilates classes make working on the Equipment accessible for all, in a relaxed group setting. We have some of the most experienced Reformer teachers in the county who will ensure you have a safe and effective workout whatever your level. Morning, evening and weekend classes for beginners to advanced.

Or choose one of our semi-private Reformer/Cadillac/Chair classes for an even more personalised session in small groups of four. Our group Stability Chair classes offer a new equipment challenge for all levels.

Barre

A fun, energetic class that takes the principles of Pilates, dance conditioning and interval training, and gives you a comprehensive full body workout that defines and tones the body and burns calories. The movements are small but the contractions are deep. Flatten your abdominals, sculpt and define arms, shoulders and back, reduce cellulite, and lift and shape your bottom and legs.

Intense bursts of energy alternate with deep stretching for body shaping, fat burning fun. Safe, controlled, intense and no-impact. 7 weekly classes.


Private Sessions

We specialise in private sessions, with more than 30 regular weekly clients; men and women of all ages and levels of fitness, from teenagers to those in their late 80s, rehab to Gloucester Rugby. Private sessions are best initially if you are recovering from injury, surgery or a health issue. You may have specific goals, such as improving sport performance and preventing injuries. Or you may just want the flexibility to arrange appointments at a time that suits you – we will always try to help.

We receive regular referrals from spinal and orthopaedic surgeons, physios, osteos and chiropractors, and have an outstanding reputation in Cheltenham for the quality of our teaching, experience and care. 

Our Pilates team

Our teachers have many years of Pilates teaching experience at the highest levels, and will help you get the results you want.
