Clients who have Pilates sessions will now have the benefit of enjoying the whole of our downstairs area. This allows proper social distancing whilst your trainer can guide you through the various exercises.
Silvia takes our one-to-one Pilates sessions. She is qualified as a BASI instructor incorporating the use of Reformer and Tower equipment, and aims to help restore body awareness by performing small, precise & highly effective movements. She challenges your mind to focus on every inch of your body, and will welcome you with a huge Italian smile and positive energy. Silvia can adapt classical Pilates to more dynamic work outs for those suited to a more intense programme to raise the heart rate & increase strength in targeted areas.
