Our group classes assume healthy core and correct joint placement. These classes are Pilates inspired but do not promise the benefits that Pilates for rehabilitation may offer. Clients seeking pain relief or injury care are recommended to book into our studio services, starting with an initial assessment and moving to a semi private. Any persons taking part in our group classes do so at their own risk and take full responsibility for their experience.
