Is a multi level class which is suitable for all. We teach modern Pilates with a focus on all the bits us women want to strengthen, tone up and stretch out.
Core strength for improved posture and less back pain. Arm strengthening to build lean muscle (tone) in arms for stronger and more sculpted guns. Active stretching to range and flexibility
Power Pilates is the ultimate workout. We combine the fundamentals of Pilates and add the intensity of boxing and resistance training to burn fat during class and hours later. Power remains low impact so it works you hard while being gentle on your knees, hips and back.
Outdoor sessions incorporate a little bit of everything plus a hit of Vitamin D and fresh air on Summer evenings. We start with Mat Pilates, add boxing and some moving resistance training. Modfications are always provided and you are guarenteed a great workout without the running and jumping usually associated with outdoor training programs.
This is my first Pilates class. What should I expect?
We require clients to start with a sculpt Pilates class if you are new to Mint Movement.
You can expect lots of modifications for you so that regardless of your fitness level or strength, you will have an option!
We work hard to remember everyone’s limitations and preferences, and try to offer specific options to personalise your class.
We have a really friendly, supportive class environment and stress the importance of working with your own body - Don’t worry about your neighbor, they are busy doing their own thing and may have been coming to class for years so just do what feels right for you and have fun! This is your chance to focus on you and only you!
What should I wear and bring?
We supply all mats and necessary equipment at the studio, but we do recommend bringing a water bottle so you can stay hydrated. There is a bottle filling station at the studio if you run out. Just wear comfy workout clothing.
How long should I expect to see/feel results?
Clients typically feel results after their very first sessions and continue to reap the benefits of Pilates for as long as they continue. Noticing the physical results depends on how often you come along to class but with a consistent practice of two to three classes a week, most clients see real results in the first four weeks!
Before & After Class
Please arrive approx 10 minutes early for your first class and let us know if you have any aches, pains, limitations or injuries that you’re working through. Your teacher will introduce themselves and show you around.
The studio is open around 15 minutes before class and 10 minutes after class. Feel free to come early or stay late to chat, stretch and ask questions. Leave mobile phones and belongings in the 'gear' corner. If you are 'on call' or have an unusual circumstance that means you are expecting a call, please just let us know before class.
(7.15am classes are unfortunately a little more tight (due to kids and uni) so we ask that if you need to discuss anything that isn't urgent, you book a time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. )
Check in with your instructor for any questions or clarifications on exercise. We are always happy to stay and chat.
Feeling motivated? We can always book you in for your next session so let us know.
