A new, gentle Pilates class starting in November...

I am delighted to announce that I shall be starting a new class on Monday lunchtimes between 1230 and 1330 in the Asian Cultural Centre in Manzil Way, just off Cowley Road.

The class will take place in the upper hall in the centre: a calm, tranquil space, perfect for a calm and tranquil class.

The content of the class will be different from my mainstream classes, with a focus on stretch therapy, gentle strengthening and balance exercises, as well as a broad embracing of all the Pilates methodologies.

The first course will be 6 weeks in length and begin on the 11th of November.

Book your space now.

Standing Pilates

Pilates aims to improve strength, increase flexibility where needed and restore good patterns of movement. The classes I teach use mathwork Pilates techniques as a core programme but will always incorporate standing exercises. We spend an awful lot of time on our feet and learning to move efficiently can be challenging. 

Balance pads are one of the tools that an instructor can use to make exercises more challenging as well as fun and these ones are ready and raring to go in a class near you!

Very low probability of Physiotherapy becoming automated in the future

An article in today's Guardian discusses research compiled at The University of Oxford about various professions and the probability that they will become computerised in the future. Thankfully the probability of Physiotherapy becoming automated is only 0.021. Looks like I'm safe for now....
