Pilates

“Pilates has the potential to help develop a deeper understanding of connection between the mind and body and with regular practice can transform your life”

The Polestar Pilates approach is holistic and assesses the whole person; physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.

Pilates teaches postural alignment, body integration and how to move with maximum efficiency to keep your body youthful and energized.

Your whole body is part of a symphony of coordinated movement. In a sense, your posture is reinvented at every instant. In every move, the ideal combination of bones, gravity, moving parts, connective tissue and muscle can be found and directed by your brain and nervous system.

Pilates will allow you to master movement by engaging with your inner senses throughout your body. Working with gravity through controlled movement and using breathing techniques you will re-discover natural movement and alignment.

Each Pilates session will be structured using Joseph Pilates’ mat exercises and sometimes small equipment such as balls and bands which will either facilitate or challenge each exercise depending on your needs.

Before Pilates training can begin I will ask you to complete a thorough fitness screening questionnaire followed by a sequence of screening exercises. These will help me understand your personal requirements and desired goal. I will design a bespoke Pilates program based upon the results of your initial consultation.

If you cannot afford weekly 1-2-1 sessions, then try my new monthly training plan. I come to you for the initial consultation and together we agree a training schedule suitable for your body and needs. I will design a training plan for you to follow every week until you see me the following month. In addition to our monthly 1-2-1 session, I will email you weekly to answer any questions and keep you super motivated!

I will bring all the essential equipment to your session.
