Edinburgh Pilates is designed to give you a more personal and improved quality of class. With classes held in a comfortable and relaxed environment and with small groups of between two and four you can expect to receive warm and friendly yet detailed and precise instruction and guidance throughout each class.

All Pilates movements are given with clear step by step instruction and sometimes hands on assistance correcting and assisting the way an individual is standing, sitting or lying so that help can be given in learning how to perform the exercise movement in the correct postural alignment!

Pilates is like no other exercise when it comes to rehabilitation after an injury and we see many people who have been referred by their Physio or GP and in some cases needing to be being signed off work which can be another frustrating part, so getting started back to work is vital! Anyone who has suffered an injury cannot and should not attend Pilates or any other exercise without full consent and approval from their Physio or GP. READ MORE
