Pilates Mat Classes

Want a total body workout that leaves you feeling strong, energetic & pain-free? I can help.

Grab a mat and enjoy this 10 minute Pilates Quickie workout.

I would like to highly recommend a Free-Flow Pilates class provided by Desirée Dunbar. The class is offered presently on Tuesday and Friday mornings and combines free-flow Pilates with elements of dance and yoga. Desirée is an amazing teacher and the class is a pleasure. For years I could not find a fitness class that is also a source of pleasure, until a friend referred me to this class, which I have been attending regularly. Add to that the ambience of the beautiful Aberthau mention and you will get an amazing experience.

I’m a Pilates person. It’s great. I had a hip problem. I had a chronic back, a pinched nerve and a hip problem and it’s completely solved all of it. I love it. It makes me feel like I’m taller.
I have been going for 13 years… How do I measure the success of Pilates? Certainly, I emerge with a tremendous sense of wellbeing, and even if I do call at the coffee shop for a croissant afterwards, I still feel my health has been served. I remain active and relatively agile.
What do I like most about Pilates? ‘The fact that I can really feel my body working. I might do 250 crunches but my body is so used to them that I don’t really feel them. With Pilates, I can really feel [my abdominals] even if I only do six or 12 repetitions.
