Special Conditions

These classes are for students with mild conditions, rehabilitation & various health concerns, they offer individual attention in a small group setting. An initial private consultation is compulsory prior to joining and in some cases continued private sessions may be advised. Within a group setting you will receive your own individual postures/exercises and modifications as well as some group practices. Our goal is to get you ready/prepare you to join our general group classes.

These classes run over 4 -10 weeks. No casual visits; with the exception of Buff Bones® and Chair classes.

Buff Bones®/Back care

Class size: 5-12 students

Buff Bones® is a medically-endorsed workout that combines Pilates, functional movement, strength training, and therapeutic exercise with bone-strengthening and balance techniques to optimise the health and safety of your bones.
The workout follows a research-supported design of specifically sequenced exercises, making it an entire system of bone and joint health, rather than just a set of exercises. Toning your arms, hips, back and abs, the Buff Bones® system also improves posture, is adaptable to varying levels, and is even safe for those with Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and some spinal conditions(to be determined).
Developed in the United States by Rebekah Rotstein, a recognised expert in Pilates and exercise for Osteoporosis, this dynamic one-hour class is enjoyable and challenging for people of all ages and levels.
