In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference and in 30 you will have a whole new body.”

 Joseph Pilates

 

Classes are taught by Rona Jones, Registered Osteopath. The exercises have been modified so that they are suitable for patients of all ages including those who are recovering from injury. If you are uncertain whether Pilates is suitable for you, please call us for a chat. Please note: Booking is essential

Group classes

Classes run on MONDAYS at the following times during school term times:

9.20am Intermediate/Advanced

10.30am Beginner/Improver

11.40am Beginner/Improver

6.10pm Beginner/Improver

To ensure plenty of individual attention, there is a maximum of 8 in each class.

Location

Community Learning and Resource Centre, 41-44 King Street, Wimborne, BH21 1EB located within the King Street car park (known locally as the CLaRC). The car park entrance is opposite the model town and can be accessed on foot behind the Minster. For a map, please click here.

Parking: 70p for 1 hour, £1 for 2 hours. Free after 6pm.

Cost

Classes are organised in blocks of approximately 6 around school terms and cost £9 each, payable in advance for a half term block. Normally, there are no classes in school holidays but there will be some ‘ad hoc’ classes in August.

Unfortunately, missed classes cannot be refunded but I endeavour to offer swaps or make-up sessions wherever possible when absence is notified in advance.

Prior to joining

All participants are required to attend at 30 minute 1:1 session to run through the basics and discuss any relevant medical history. I have found that patients get on much better in a class if they have had a 1:1. The cost of this is £25.

Please note that the 1:1 sessions take place at the clinic, not the CLaRC.

You also need to complete a registration form including details of your medical history, even if you have been to Wimborne Osteopathic Clinic as a patient. You can download a registration form here: Pilates Registration Form PDF.

Equipment

All equipment is provided but please bring a small towel to use as additional support for certain exercises.

What to wear

Please wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise (but also suitable for me to see if your abdominal muscles are working, so not too baggy please).

Grip socks are recommended but the floor in the CLaRC is carpeted so not too slippy.

1:1 Sessions

Individual sessions are available at a cost of £40 and take place at the clinic.
