Pilates - 1-2-1

Pilates – What is it?

Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact Flexibility and Muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasises on proper Postural alignment, core strength and balance. Pilates named after it’s creator Joseph Pilates who developed the exercise in the 1920s.


What does it do?

The health benefits of Pilates are many, including Improved Flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles lower back, hips and buttock’s. These group of muscles create what is known as the ‘Core’ muscles of the body. They form the foundation of your Posture which is essential for a healthy strong body throughout your life.

Do I need to book a course?

Whether you are a complete beginner, are looking to improve your core strength, or have been recommended by a health professional, a course of Pilates is highly recommended to ensure you get the most out of your sessions.

I offer individual 1-2-1 pilates studio sessions to:

  • Create tailored exercises from your massage programme
  • Teach and ensure correct technique
  • Support and encourage long-term progress

Useful fact:

Pilates is considered to be the best form of exercise for improving back pain and posture which is why it's often recommended by GPs and physiotherapists.


I experienced general aches and pains along with a tense neck, shoulders and arms during my second trimester of pregnancy Visited Janet for my first pregnancy massage.
The attention to detail, care and confidence shown made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Janet really can read the body and focuses on the areas needed without having to direct her, her technique and attention to her work is exemplary.
Janet’s manner and calming presence along with amazing technique has made me feel so much lighter and calmer within myself – highly recommend her for pregnancy massages.
