TYPES OF CLASSES
I provide small group Pilates classes allowing you the time and space to develop your Pilates at your own pace and ability. There are a wide range of fun and friendly Pilates classes so that there is a suitable class for you. I provide a range of small equipment including mini balls, towels, bands and blocks to help and support your practice and keep the classes varied and interesting.
Introduction to Pilates – a course to introduce you to Pilates and all the basic moves. Suitable for complete beginners and those with a little experience of Pilates. It is a great way to start your Pilates journey and gives you the chance to join one of the existing classes at the end of the course.
Beginners – suitable for beginners and for people dealing with some long term health conditions or injuries.
Gentle improvers – a popular class for those with some experience of Pilates, lots of progressions if you would like to take it a little easier.
Improvers – suitable for those with some experience of Pilates, many people choose to continue long term at this level. Lots of progressions provided so that you can work at your own level and pace.
Intermediate – this is the class for you if you are experienced at Pilates and contains lots of intermediate and the occasional advanced move. A fun, focused class.
Mixed ability – a class with a wide range of abilities. Using progressions allows people to work at different levels in the class. You may need a private lesson before joining the class, depending if you have any previous experience of Pilates and on your general fitness level.
All pilates classes are held at St Nicholas Hall on St Nicholas Road in Barry
ONE 2 ONE & PRIVATE CLASSES
Private lessons let you enjoy Pilates at your own pace taking into account your goals, lifestyle, injuries or long term conditions that you may have. We progress at a pace that suits you and you get the chance for individual attention. A chance to ask questions, refine your technique.
You can use your sessions to create a Pilates program that is designed especially for you, taking into account any preferences or restrictions that you may have. Enjoy the time to yourself for relaxation and stress management. Improve your posture and work on your strength, flexibility and tone. Private lessons can be used as specialist sessions following injury or illness. I provide any equipment that we may need, just bring yourself in some comfortable easy to move in clothing.
121/Small Group Pilates – for Horse Riders
I teach Pilates for horse riders in individual 121 Pilates sessions or if you would like to get together with a few friends, you can share a private lesson with up to 3 others. Alternatively your horse riding will still benefit from attending one of the regular classes.
The classes take place in a friendly, calm and welcoming atmosphere. You do have to concentrate and work hard but it is an hour that goes so quickly that you don’t always realise how hard you have worked.
Since attending Sharon’s Pilates class I feel stronger and fitter. Pilates is a great way to keep in shape when aerobic exercise is not an option. I’ve been to several different Pilates classes over the years but Sharon’s is the best. I always leave feeling so much better for it.
Sharon’s classes have made a real difference, and my back and neck pain is a thing of the past. Sharon runs the classes in a relaxed and easy going way but with great commitment. No-one feels they have to keep up and no-one feels at all uncomfortable if they can’t manage some of the
