We recommend that you bring your own mat.

It has not been easy to find a way through the dilemma we’ve been faced with since the Centre’s forced closure a fortnight ago – but we think we’ve alighted on a workable model going forward which we hope you’ll find acceptable too.  Here it is:

  • you can book for four weeks at a time for £37 and
  • you will be able to attend – free of charge – up to 2 further Pilates classes* of your choice each week.

*taught by your tutor

The four week blocks will continue to be offered until lockdown has ended.
