Matwork classes

Matwork classes can benefit people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels.  I teach matwork classes on Tuesday evenings at Ladywell Arena and Thursday evenings at St Dunstan's Jubilee Ground.  Daytime matwork classes are taught from a private studio space in Catford. This page has information about matwork classes including prices, timetable, venue information and online booking (see below).  I also offer back care and private group sessions.

  • Matwork classes

I adapt the level of difficulty and type of exercises to suit the needs of the people in each group, but as a guide: 

  • Beginners classes are suitable for those who are new to Pilates or have attended a small number of classes
  • Beginners and Improvers classes are suitable for people who are reasonably fit and active, and for those with some previous experience of Pilates.
Please note that you may need to check with your doctor before coming to class if you:
  • have a health condition
  • are returning to exercise after illness or injury.
It may be more appropriate for you to attend a back care class, private group or 1-2-1 sessions before joining a matwork class.  If in doubt, please get in touch to discuss which option is best for you.  I do not currently offer pre or post natal matwork classes as I believe it's better for you to work with a teacher who specialises in supporting women during and after pregnancy.
