Pilates Classes

Pilates Classes and Workshops

I offer Pilates classes for older adults and those who want to work more closely into somatic awareness.  Read my blog post on 29th September 2021 for information on my Slow Pilates and how I developed it.

Summer 2023

I am offering a  block of four classes in person at  Murrayfield Church Hall upper room at 5.30pm-6.30pm on Thursday evenings starting on 6th July.  In this block of summer classes we will work with the large foam roller and the magic circle.  I have rollers and magic circles that I am happy to give away  if anyone would like them.  I am giving these away for  free but a donation to the Sanas grove at Trees for Life will be gratefully received.   Mostly my classes are  designed for older people or those with joint problems but  anyone is welcome. sanasancientwisdom@gmail.com

Booking is essential for the in person classes.



What is Pilates?

Pilates is named after its creator, German born Joseph Pilates, who developed a range of exercises back in the 1920s, based on his belief that physical and mental health were closely related.

His exercise programme was developed using the influence of western forms of exercise, including boxing, gymnastics and Greco-Roman wrestling.

Pilates is an accessible way to build strength in your core muscles for better posture, balance and flexibility.

Benefits of Pilates!

Regularly practicing Pilates can help achieve a number of health benefits, which includes:

  • Improved posture and balance .
  • Improved core strength and stability.
  • Improved flexibility.
  • Relief And prevention of back pain.

Who can do Pilates?

Pilates is tailor made to your level of fitness and can be enjoyed by beginners through to professional athletes.

Classes can vary in intensity and can be gentle or dynamic but they will offer a solid workout for your fitness level.

Pilates can be adapted to provide gentle strengthening and stability and it’s a good idea to go slowly at first and gradually increase the exercises at a controlled rate.
