What age group can do Pilates?
It is more appropriate to consider your current condition of health, rather than your age. When you contact us, we will help you to assess whether your chosen class is suitable for you. If we think it might not be suitable, we will do our best to suggest another class.
I have a bad back will it be safe for me?
Depending on the nature of your problem. We might ask you to check with your doctor or specialist first. We are not physiotherapists and while we can modify exercises to some extent, the classes are designed for people who can reasonably be expected to be able to exercise without the risk of injury.
