One-to-one classes

One-to-One classes can help you develop a practice that deepens your level of ability and awareness more than you can achieve in a group class. They allow both yourself and the teacher to learn more about your body’s needs, abilities and perhaps uncover postural patterns that are no longer needed or beneficial to you. When you do your group class you are then more aware of how to move your body beyond the general instructions given in the class.

I am an experienced teacher with over 28 years of experience in Pilates, Yoga, Meditation, Aromatherapy Massage and Somatics.

The skill of the one-to-one teacher is to understand and support your individual anatomy, postural and movement habit patterns and provide insight as to how to establish patterns which help to organise your body in a balanced and effortless way. This is an energetic stability which can be experienced in the body and the mind.

Classes next term

Hello there everyone, many thanks for your support this year and hope to see you next year!!
Next term begins on the week of January 8 which is a Monday, so all classes are back that week as well as my private class students.  I have been asked by a few students for an extended class on Saturday 13 January which may be a bit soon but who knows, start the year off as you mean to go on!!
I am renaming my pilates class at the Crescent Arts Centre to Contemporary Pilates so that I can put a name to what I am actually doing as I have moved further past an ordinary pilates class.  These classes will have some Somatic exercises in them and some movements that are more functional.
My yoga classes will also have some Somatics in them and the style of yoga I am inspired by is Vanda Scaravelli yoga which is quite slow and a very somatic way of moving.  Anyway I would like to know what you think and what you would like from the classes, or how you are finding them and what you enjoy in the class.
The Tuesday Contemporary class will only have 10 people as the somatics takes a bit of space and you become more spacious within yourself so I do not want to squeeze people in etc.  It would be great if you could let me know if you want a space for next term and if you could bring a blanket as well and any yoga blocks you may have.  It is surprising  how much support for things actually allows the body to release more.
