Suzanne Arnold has over ten years experience as a fully qualified Pilates instructor and runs classes led by other Pilates instructors. These instructors have each qualified with Body Control Pilates which is one of the foremost training institutions worldwide. The classes are in small groups and are mat based which means we can keep them affordable. They are organised into short courses which usually follow school terms apart from the summer break in which we continue to offer classes.
Apart from its well earned reputation for improving the way the body looks and moves, Pilates is widely recommended by health professionals for back health. Techniques for stress reduction are a special and much loved feature of each of the classes. Clients regularly report that their weekly class keeps their body toned and comfortable and that they experience better quality sleep.
Each class combines strengthening, toning and stretching exercises with stress reduction techniques. Sometimes a pre-existing condition will require sensitivity and modification. This is easily accomplished in the context of the class situation. Exercises are demonstrated and variations offered to meet individual needs.
Standing Pilates exercises are included in each of Suzanne’s classes for improved balance and extra toning. Standing Pilates is a newly developed form of Pilates. The benefits of Standing Pilates include better balance and poise as well as weight bearing for improving bone density.
Suzanne’s Pilates is suitable for everyone regardless of age or level of fitness.
