This class is aimed at 11 – 15 year olds, when the body is changing from child to adult. The amount of time spent sitting doing schoolwork and the use of computers, tablets and mobile phones means poor posture at this age is common, and may lead to long term postural issues. Pilates, with its focus on body awareness and developing strength in postural muscles, is an ideal form of exercise to counteract this. The teenage years are when kids may become less active generally, and Pilates creates a non-competitive exercise environment, with the focus on personal physical development.
Pilates is recommended by physiotherapists for children with hypermobility.
The classes are taught by our physiotherapists, who are DBS (formally CRB) checked.
