PASSIONATE ABOUT pilates

Our aim is to provide world-class Pilates instruction and education to our clients in an exclusive environment whereby each individual gets hands-on attention, be it in a reformer class or 1:1 setting, to create a balanced, functional body. 

As Joseph Pilates stated “Controlology (Pilates) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.” The Loft Pilates Studio encompasses this statement, aiming to balance the mind and body to enable the client to complete whatever their passion is, be it work, sports, Pilates, or everyday life, with optimal physical and mental conditioning.

 

TAILORED TO your body

You are unique and so too is your Pilates session. At The Loft, we strongly focus on alignment, personalisation and helping you achieve your goals.  No two sessions are ever the same.

 

Every time you visit, you'll be asked how your body is feeling, and your session will be led by what you communicate, both verbally and through your physicality. 
 
In group classes, instructors provide hands-on adjustments and verbal cues to ensure you are aligned making sure you are switching on and reconnecting the correct muscles ensuring you get the most out of every class
 
Our highly-trained instructors regularly complete additional training to update their knowledge.

WHY CHOOSE EQUIPMENT pilates

FASTER results

The equipment we use in Pilates utilizes pulleys and springs to assist or resist movement using the participants own body weight.  It provides extra resistance so that strength and stamina are built quicker than with mat work alone. 

CONNECTION & feedback

Clients also feel that they can get more feedback from the machines than with matwork alone and it enables them to make and understand a better connection with their body. The equipment highlights imbalances and weaknesses which through a personalised plan are targeted and strengthened improving mobility, flexibility, balance and strength

SUPPORTED recovery

If you're recovering from injury, surgery or are pre or post-natal, the equipment springs can support some of the body's weight and provide extra assistance to help you rediscover your range of movement and improve your mobility safely.

TARGETED & efficient

The specialized equipment used in our studios allows for very focused training environment.  We can isolate and work muscle groups directly whilst activating dormant muscles through correct alignment and verbal cues improving posture and well being

THE HISTORY OF pilates

Originally created by a German man named Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s, Pilates is a series of exercises designed to target the deep muscles of the abdomen and spine to strengthen the body from the inside out.

 

It focuses on breath and proper alignment with the goal of achieving a balance of strength and flexibility.  This creates better balance in the body which translates to your movement through all of life’s activities, improving your posture and muscle tone.
