Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on strengthening the body and places an emphasis on core strength. It helps improve general fitness, as well as overall well-being. It concentrates on posture, balance and flexibility.

Pilates also focuses on the mind-body connection as you need  to be constantly aware of your breathing and the way your body moves.

This class is suitable for beginners or improvers.

Thursdays: 11.15am to 12.15pm

Known as a ‘sound bath’, this is a deeper form of meditation without any participation required. Lie down, relax and allow the vibrations and sounds of the instruments to wash over you to heal and uplift emotional burdens and disharmonies within.

Some of the benefits of Sound Healing Meditation are as follows: cleansing negative energy and emotions, relieving stress, deeper relaxation, aiding recovery after illness or trauma, improving sleep and increasing energy levels.
