There is no doubt that you’ll get the maximum benefit by attending regular Pilates practice, but that is not always easy to achieve. I have designed my weekly programme to give you the most opportunity to practice.

On those occasions when you can’t make your regular weekly class you are able to make up missed sessions within the same discipline and paid term (space may be limited therefore advanced notification of attending is advisable).

The ethos of Sue’s classes is to create a space where you feel curious to learn about you and your body. Safe in the knowledge that you will be cared for, encouraged, inspired, and comfortable enough to have fun while learning – enjoying the company of the dynamics of the whole class.

The intention is for you to come away feeling in control of your body, mind and life. The inspiration is for you to “be the body your were designed to be.”


Power Pilates/ Pilates Flow

Faster paced, more like a workout, putting all your principles and Pilates training into a faster paced class with stronger exercises and move challenges.

This class is not suitable for beginners as it challenges the techniques you learn through practice.

This session is designed for the healthy, non-injured participant.

Pilates Intermediate

For those who want a little more challenge but not so fast paced.

Pilates General

For all levels, Pilates exercises given with multi-levels, infused with stretching and releasing exercises.

Pilates Slow Paced

For all levels with time to practise, limited flexion or seated exercises given with lots of advice and technique instruction.

 Garuda Barre

Garuda Barre

 is about arcing and curling, pushing and pulling, lengthening and strengthening the entire body.  Full body movement from fingers to toes- owning the space you are in – using the barre so most of the class is standing with the use of the barre for feedback.  There is a section of band work either at the end or intervals through the class. Props maybe used for extra dynamics. You will challenge your bodies movement, through dynamic lengthening, you will iron out kinks, which in turn will make your body stronger and you will feel the difference instantly.   come and feel delicious in the body you are in- be curious of your movement and explore how good you can really feel. 

 Come and flow with Garuda Barre and FEEL how good you can feel.

Rest, Restore and Rejuvenate

one of my favourite sessions, one that everyone needs on there weekly timetable of self preservation. In these sessions,  you will massage out tight areas, roll around, stretch, mobilise and articulate, use massage techniques and acupoints, focus on breath work and there is a 20 minute meditation session at the end. (chose to sit or lie down, your preference.)

you will need a blanket for this one.
