These hour or 45 minute classes are high intensity but low impact and offer a full body workout focusing on traditional Pilates principles practised in 37 degree heat. The heat warms up muscles more quickly and the class is challenging but fun offering a great workout and a real endorphin hit.

Pilates is a mind-body intervention that focuses on strength, core stability, flexibility, muscle control, posture and breathing. Our classes are suitable for beginners all the way through to advanced level.
Pilates classes focus on proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. At Ironstone we currently offer a mat based pilates practice. These sessions may involve no equipment at all, but it can depending on the instructor also include additional equipment such as stretch bands and mini gym balls. Your goal throughout the session should be to take your time to complete the exercise in a slow and controlled manner and focus on the breath.

Improves Flexibility – The heat allows you to stretch a little further and achieve a greater range of motion. Stretching after you warm up your muscles is safer than stretching cold muscles. Flexibility levels will not improve as much in Pilates in comparison to regular Yoga practice.
Burns More Calories – Turning up the heat can help you burn even more calories.
Strengthens Your Body – While Pilates focuses on the core strength it is in fact a whole-body workout. Pilates is also very popular for those needed to rehab for this exact reason. Building strong core foundations will result is durability and protection across the whole body.
Improves Posture – Good posture and alignment is a result of a strong core. Regular practice can improve posture. Pilates is said to help people who suffer with back pain for this exact reason.
