Classes are for all ages and all abilities, some face to face in Helensburgh and some live on Zoom possible from anywhere with internet connection plus loads of recordings to add when you need them. All classes are aimed at getting people thinking about their bodies, what you can do, what you want to do and making your body and mind feel good.
Most classes are based around Pilates Principles and Fundamentals of Breathing, Centre, Control, Flow, Precision and Coordination.
All classes are based around me helping you understand your own body so you can take ownership and to use these skills throughout your working, leisure and social life.
Some movements are about every day functionality and balance, others help with strength and endurance, and others are just about having fun with like-minded people.
All classes are welcoming, friendly, fun! And about working at your own level and achieving your own goals.
Kinesology is the study of the principles of mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement.
I love getting people moving and using my studies and knowledge to transfer these skills to Every Body to move more easily whatever your age or goals.

Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance; so much more than just building a 'strong core' or 'perfect posture'. Exercises involve the whole body, sometimes using small equipment: overball; stretch bands; Pilates Circle; foam roller; hand weights.

Pilates gives us a greater understanding and sense of our bodies supporting healthy flexible joints, lengthened bodies and strong muscles. Supporting you to be the person you need to be whether your goal is to feel less stiff, less pain, carry the shopping more easily, play with family longer, to set a new personal best in your chosen sport, to stop worry about falling or to reduce injuries.

Kinesiology, Articulation, Range and Strength
Movement range training is challenging and demanding on the body but ultimately rewarding. If you are looking for increasing the flexibility and strength or your joints, increasing your range of motion, helping your balance and training in a different way 30 mins of KARS could be for you.
Don't be fooled by only 30mins and mainly body weight, it's tough, sweaty, energizing effort.
Use on it's own, with Pilates or supporting other goals; flexibility, running, cycling, swimming, or headstands, handstands, complicated balance moves; preventing or recovering from injuries quicker.
Only live Zoom or recorded classes available.
