We run a wide range of Mat Pilates, Barre & Specialised classes at Holywood Pilates.
If you are unsure which level of class to enrol in, you can check out our free
taster classes below.
Progression to Intermediate level is appropriate after a Beginners course when the basic principles have been learned and the participant can maintain and control a neutral lower spine in the double table top position. This level of class will provide a bigger challenge to the abdominal and pelvic muscles. Small equipment is used to provide resistance to movement or facilitate more challenging exercises.
Beginner / Improver
Learn the essential principles of Pilates - concentration, centering, breathing, isolation, routine, precision, control and flowing movement. It is the place to start and can be the level to stay at if you have any underlying medical/orthopaedic problems. Spinal pain and other orthopaedic conditions can often be effectively managed through exercising at this level. Each exercise can be modified as required to an easier or more difficult version to allow for individual variation, injury, etc.
