Pilates Classes

Pilates is a physical fitness system developed by Joseph Pilates in the early twentieth century and is an effective way to help build core strength or recover from injury.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is practiced around the world and is suitable for all body types and fitness levels and seeks to strengthen all areas of the body with a particular focus on core and alignment. I offer a number of different classes across the week at a number of different locations.

Benefits of Pilates

I encourage my clients to work at a level suitable for them and it is easy to scale the exercises up and down as ability progresses. Being mindful of the breath is key throughout and I like to conclude my classes with a short relaxation. Benefits of Pilates can include:


  • Strengthens and tones all muscles in the body.
  • Alleviates back pain and strengthens muscles in the back.
  • Increases mobility and flexibility of the spine.
  • Improves posture and alignment in the body.
  • Helps to bring an overall sense of wellbeing to the mind.

Private Classes

Whilst I teach a number of different classes to suit mixed ability, I do also offer private classes if you feel you have a particular need that you wish to focus on or you would like to try some classes privately first before venturing into a class. Then do get in touch to see how we can help.  All private classes can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

Class Description

All of my Pilates classes are mixed ability and are mat based. Pilates is a challenging but safe way to sculpt your body, all classes will focus on building strength, increase flexibility and work towards balancing all muscle groups in the body. We can use a range of different equipment in our classes including a foam block, resistance bands, spiky balls, wobbly cushions and Pilates balls. Please bring along your own mat or let me know if you need me to bring one for you.

Student Testimonials

All of our classes offer a warm and friendly welcome, but don’t just take our word for it, here is what some of our clients have to say.

Niki T

Yoga and Pilates Client, Meopham.

I was recommended by my osteopath to consider Pilates as a form of exercise that may help with a long term injury. As well as vastly improving my flexibility and well-being , I am able to further use the techniques taught, as and when, to alleviate my symptoms when they flare up. I feel I am benefiting not only on a physical level from the (Emma’s) class, but mentally when life is somewhat bewildering and challenging.


Pilates Client, Hextable

I just wanted to say thank you and let you know I really enjoy your classes. You are an informative & precise teacher & I have found the classes to be very beneficial, especially the pelvic floor exercises. I do particularly enjoy the relaxation exercise at the end though!

Susan T

Yoga and Pilates client.

I have been taking lessons in Pilates with Emma for nearly 4 years and Yoga for the last six months. My flexibility and core strength has improved immensely since taking these classes. She takes great care to ensure her pupils perform the exercises and poses correctly and offers an alternative exercise if it is unsuitable to some pupils. There is always a short relaxation at the end of the classes to wind down which is very much appreciated. I would highly recommend her.

Class Schedule

All of our pilates classes are mixed ability, unless otherwise stated.
