About the class

A seated movement class using Pilates techniques which will focus on mobilising and stretching the whole body. It will also explore optimal body alignment to improve body awareness and alleviate muscular tension. The final part of the session will use breathing techniques to relax the mind and body to leave you feeling centred, re-energised and ready to continue with the rest of your day. This class is open to all and there will be adaptations and adjustments for all exercises to make them suitable to individual needs.

What you will need to take part

You will need to have a stable chair and plenty of space around you where you can freely move your arms, in order to participate. It would be good if the instructor can see your full body on screen so that they can give feedback but if you prefer to keep your screen off whilst following the class, that is absolutely fine. We recommend using a PC or laptop to join rather than mobile where possible.

Pay What You Can

Tickets are based on a Pay What You Can basis, meaning you can now choose to pay a price that works for you. All revenue goes directly towards the cost of running these sessions. The recommended ticket price we would usually charge is £5, but we know that this could be a barrier for some and hope that by allowing you to choose a price that suits you, we can make these sessions accessible to everyone.
