I have been teaching classical mat Pilates for over seven years in the Fife, Taybridgehead area. You can choose from 10 classes in Newport on Tay, Balmerino, Tayport, Gauldry, Luthrie, Cupar, Kingskettle and Blebo Craigs.
I teach mixed ability classes and have a wide range of people (men and women) that attend, from 14-year-old ice skaters to horse riders, runners, golfers, fitness enthusiasts and retired people that are looking to keep fit, healthy and mobile. My oldest client is 75 years old.
The classical Pilates exercise method has been used for many years and it has a range of benefits.
It’s low impact, helps flattens abdominal muscles, reshapes and tones the whole body without stressing the joints. It also improves flexibility, and can help correct poor posture and prevent back pain.
I offer group classes, private tuition and online Pilates during the lockdown.
There is something for everyone. If you want a challenge – you will get a challenge. If you want to work to your level and improve slowly – there is a class for you.
