Full timetable will be back for Autumn term starting 9th September 2019
ZenergyActive classes offer a holistic and inclusive approach to Fitness Pilates: they’re not about your weight or burning calories, but about helping you feel strong and relaxed in mind and body. I use breathing techniques and aromatherapy scents in all my classes to help everyone escape the day-to-day and focus on themselves and their wellbeing.
Whether you’re seeking the blissful relaxation of Zen Pilates, the physical and mental workout of Energy Pilates, the fun of AerobicDanceFit, or a mixture of all of them, book now to experience the gentle power of Pilates over body and mind.
Zen Pilates: the blissful escape
Remove tension from mind and body, gently stretching and unfurling the body and calming the mind. I’ll guide you through breathing techniques and gentle, low-impact movements to focus your breath and create a real mind-body connection, and you’ll be moving amongst tea lights in a room infused with organic aromatherapy scents and relaxing ambient music. At the end we finish with a 15-minute guided relaxation so you can float off home for a deep, restorative sleep.
Who is this class best for? Anyone wanting to alleviate tension and pressure in the body and mind. Perfect for all levels of fitness and experience as it’s low–impact withadaptations to enable you to work at a level that’s right for you. We really focus on the posture for establishing great technique, so it’s particularly good for beginners.
Benefits: Your body will feel long and strong and your mind clear and calm. Quiet wakefulness is second only to deep sleep for allowing the body to recharge, so you’ll float out of class having set yourself up for a great night’s sleep.
Energy Pilates: the physical and mental workout
Invigorate your energy levels and feel toned and strong. A low-impact but highly effective workout, this dynamic style concentrates on working each muscle group for greater strength and flexibility, with a particular focus on a strong and stable core and glutes, and good spinal posture. You’ll learn techniques to strengthen, twist, reach and pulse for a full-body workout to uplifting music; leaving you feeling strong, balanced and energised in both body and mind. The Monday morning class has a particular emphasis on stretching, to kick-start your week feeling strong, supple and focused.
Who is this class best for? Anyone wanting to improve their strength and flexibility, whatever your level of fitness or experience. We can adapt all of the movements in both standing and mat work to suit your desired level of intensity, so it can be tailored completely to your pace.
Benefits: This class is both invigorating and relaxing, a great stress-buster that works deeply into the muscles and joints. You’ll feel you’ve worked hard physically and mentally, and go away feeling mobilised, balanced, strong, toned and flexible.
Zenergy Fusion Pilates: the recharging combo
Recharge and reboot your mind and body with a blend of Zen and Energy techniques in the same session. The first half of the class is a dynamic Energy Pilates session, working each muscle group to strengthen and tone; twisting, reaching and pulsing to uplifting music. We then change pace for the second half, switching to Zen Pilates with candlelight, aromatherapy scents and calm, ambient music. This part of the class is about deeply-held stretches to lengthen and unfurl, before we end with a short guided relaxation session under blankets.
Who is this class best for? People who like the sound of both Zen and Energy Pilates, and want to combine the stress-busting benefits of both. It doesn’t matter what level of fitness or experience you are as I’ll guide you and tailor movements throughout.
Benefits: This fusion class is a really effective way to combat mental and physical stress, combining a dynamic physical workout and concentrated muscle work with the calm of breathing techniques and a real mind-body connection.
AerobicDanceFit: the mood-lifting party workout
Boost your mood dancing your heart out to an energetic combination of aerobic-style dance moves set to cheesy tunes and big anthems to really get the blood pumping.
Who is this class best for? Anyone who fancies a giggle, wiggle or bounce to simple, fun routines – you certainly don’t need to be a dancer, or even have any co-ordination whatsoever! All the moves are simple to follow and I’ll guide you through them as you learn.
Benefits: Regular aerobic activity helps strengthen your heart, lower your blood pressure, improve your balance and the tone and strength of your muscles – not to mention the great endorphin buzz.
