Pilates Classes In Norfolk

I am planning a 4-week course on Thursdays, starting on August 5 at Cley village hall. There will be a class at 9 and another at 10.15, both lasting an hour. If you haven't done any Pilates for a while because of lockdown, or have done a bit and would like to come to a class over the summer, do get in touch. Both sessions will be mixed ability, with variations to make exercises easier or more challenging according to your level, but neither will be suitable for complete beginners. The course will cost £40. You need to bring your own mat and head cushion.

Group Pilates Classes at Blakeney and Cley village halls near Holt, North Norfolk

All my group matwork classes are taught at specific levels; there are no mixed-ability classes. We use small pieces of equipment – hand weights and toning balls, for example – to increase resistance and add variety.

At the moment there is no beginners’ class. If you haven’t done Pilates before you would need to do two 1:1s at my home studio to understand the basic principles of Pilates before you can join an improver class.

In order of difficulty the levels are: improver, intermediate, advanced.

  • Monday 10.00-11.00:  improver, Cley village hall
  • Wednesday 9–10: intermediate, Cley village hall
  • Wednesday 10.15–11.15: improver, Cley village hall
  • Thursday 9–10: advanced, Blakeney village hall
  • Thursday 10.15–11.15: intermediate/advanced, Cley village hall

The autumn term starts the week beginning 6 September 2021 and is 6 weeks long, finishing the week beginning 11 October. Classes are paid for termly in advance and this term costs £60.



Do I need to bring anything?

You need to bring your own mat and a head cushion or small towel to rest your head on.

I have a bad back and I’m worried Pilates will make it worse.

It is difficult to overcome the fear of movement, and back pain can be especially debilitating. Pilates improves your core strength and strengthens your back muscles, so you can support your spine more effectively in everyday life. You work at your own pace - it’s not competitive - and most people find it improves their back pain quite quickly.

I’m not very fit, does that matter?

No, Pilates will improve your fitness, and at the beginning it’s not particularly aerobic. A lot of the movements are done lying down so you are very supported.

I’m over 60, can I still do Pilates?

You can do Pilates at any age, but you do need to be able to get up and down off the floor.

What happens if I miss a class?

Classes are paid for in advance and by the term. If you can’t come one week, I’ll try to fit you into a class of a similar level on another day, so you can make up the missed class. This isn’t always possible, so you may pay for a class that you can’t attend.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes - a T-shirt and leggings. You can have bare feet or non-slippy socks.
