Group Exercise Classes

In today’s fast-paced work environment, desk-based workers often find themselves facing unique physical challenges. Prolonged sitting, poor posture, and repetitive movements can lead to a range of health issues, from back pain to decreased flexibility. Our Pilates-based group exercise classes are specifically designed to address these concerns and promote overall well-being. Here’s how our classes can benefit you:

1. Improve Posture and Alignment
Spending long hours at a desk can lead to poor posture, which in turn causes muscle imbalances and discomfort. Our Pilates-based exercises focus on core strength and spinal alignment, helping you maintain a healthy posture both during and after work.

2. Enhance Flexibility and Mobility
Sitting for extended periods can cause stiffness in the hips, shoulders, and back. Pilates emphasizes stretching and lengthening muscles, which improves flexibility and joint mobility, making everyday movements easier and more comfortable.

3. Strengthen Core Muscles
A strong core is essential for supporting the spine and preventing back pain. Our classes target the deep abdominal muscles, lower back, and pelvic floor, building a solid foundation that supports your entire body.

4. Reduce Stress and Tension
Pilates encourages mindful movement and deep breathing, which can significantly reduce stress levels. By focusing on your body and breath during our classes, you’ll find a sense of calm and relaxation that helps you manage work-related stress more effectively.

5. Boost Energy and Productivity
Regular exercise is known to enhance energy levels and mental clarity. Participating in our Pilates classes can help combat the midday slump, increase your productivity, and leave you feeling more energized and focused throughout the day.

6. Prevent Work-Related Injuries
By strengthening and balancing muscles, Pilates can help prevent common work-related injuries such as repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) and lower back pain. Our exercises are designed to support the body in performing daily tasks more safely and efficiently.

7. Foster a Sense of Community
Our group classes offer a supportive and motivating environment where staff can connect with their co-workers. Sharing their fitness journey with colleagues and s can make exercise more enjoyable and help them stay committed to their health goals, as well as assist in the maintenance of team relationships.

8. Adaptable for All Fitness Levels
Whether participants are  beginners or an experienced exerciser’s, our Pilates classes can be adapted to suit their fitness level. Our physiotherapists provide modifications and progressions to ensure that everyone can participate and benefit from the workouts.

9. No Equipment Needed

All we need is enough space for the size of the class.  Participants can choose to bring a mat or towel to lie on, but otherwise we use the force of our own bodies and gravity to provide resistance.

10. Choice of Class Duration

To ensure accessibility to our classes, we provide class times of 20minutes , 30minutes, and 45 minutes.  This allows us to get through more classes/participants in an allotted time period to benefit as many staff as possible.
